Catherine Pooler Die Cutting Stencils/Masks Techniques

Sunny with a Side of Sparkle Blog Hop

3 very different cards using the same color inks from the Spa Collection. Welcome to Day 3 of the Sunny with a side a Sparkle Blog Hop celebrating the recent Catherine Pooler release.  My first card uses the Starlight Stamps and dies. I created a galaxy background using Juniper Mist and Royal Treatment. Then I stamped and die cut the stars… But wait. There is more….

I added a little action wobbler behind the big star so it moves! 🙂

My second card uses the Say it in Diamonds stamp set. There are lot of  Diamond shaped graphics in this set, but I chose to use the small images from the sent and create my own pattern.

Love Catherine Pooler inks….. All the inks I am using today are from the Spa collection and linked below in the supply list.

My final card uses the Twisted Sunburst stencil, but I stamped with it 🙂 I inked up the stencil with Rose Petals and Shea Butter, spritzed it with water and then stamped with the stencil…. Oh how I love the background.


The Tag’s Etc dies came in handy here to finish off the card.
