Catherine Pooler Designs - Zen Garden Release Blog Hop - Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of the Blog Hop for Catherine Pooler's latest release: Zen Garden!


Today we're featuring Eat, Sleep, Create and the newest background stamp, Doodle Garden.




Stamps: Eat, Sleep, Create
Inks: Midnight, Black Jack, Shea Butter, Seafoam, Spruce, Skylight, Stone Blue, Sugared Lavender, Rose Petals, Polished
Paper: White, Smoke & Mirrors

This stamp set has the word 'create' in different fonts and lots of add-ons, so you can get lots of different looks. The word 'repeat' isn't included, but I created it by using 'eat', the 'ep' from sleep and the 'r' from more, for a fun addition to my sentiment.

Stamps: Eat, Sleep Create
Inks: Midnight, Black Jack, Shea Butter, Polished, Rose Petals, Sugared Lavender, Stone Blue, Skylight
Dies: Create

There is also a create die in the release - in a fun script-y font. And speaking of the add-on sentiments in this set, I just couldn't choose, so I used them all to create a 'grafitti-wall'. 


Finally, Doodle Garden - this design was on the wall at Creativation and we have all been dying to play with it since then! There are so many ways to use this doodly background and I know I'll be playing with this one for a long time! Here, I stamped it in Midnight and then partially inlaid the new Smile die, which I had blended with Polished ink.

  37. The repeated "create" on the background of the "Eat. Sleep. Create. Repeat" card is such a perfect way to accent the sentiment. I love it! Also, I'm really amazed at how bright even these more muted tones are. I can definitely feel myself falling in love with CP inks without ever having used them! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful cards with us!
