Catherine Pooler Designs - Paradise Found Release


There's a lot going on at Catherine Pooler Designs today! There's a blog hop to celebrate all the amazing things happening!

First - 8 new colours of Catherine's amazing inks! They are called the Spa Collection and are rich and warm and oh so perfect for fall and holiday cards (used in all of my cards today)

Second - A release of new products - stamps, dies and a plaid background stamp that makes for some very cozy cards! (Two cards and videos before)




Third - All of the products from the Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval collection are now available for purchase individually - lots of stamps and dies and some very, very sparkly embossing powder. (used above, except the embossing powder, used in 'Warm Wishes' below)




Fourth  - SOAPS! With names and scents to match the new inks! How fun is that? 


My first card (above) uses the new inks with products from the Naturally Inspired Collection - I love how the rich warm colours create the perfect autumn bouquet!




My second and third cards use the newly released Plaid Background in a rainbow of the new colours (see video below), along with some previously released sentiments. That plaid is perfect for cozy cards full of warm wishes!




Next stop on the hop is the fabulous Ingrid!

Wow! I can't wait to get my hands on these inks and stamp. I had to think hard about how you did the blue with rainbow plaid card when I ordered the stamp and was looking at the sample projects. Thanks a bunch for the video; I knew it had to be layered, but now I know exactly how you did it. Thanks for the tutorial inspiration.
