Catherine Pooler Designs March Release - All That Jazz!


It's Day 3 of the All That Jazz blog hops and the products are now available in the shop!


This card uses the new Grateful Heart stamps and dies, the new Wonderful die and one of the amazing patterns in the new Black Tie Gala Patterned paper pack.

I started by stamping and embossing the swags of flowers and then watercolouring them using CP inks (Video below). I cut them out with the matching dies and popped them up on a full panel of the striped patterned paper. 

I wanted my 'wonderful' to match the embossing on the flowers, so I cut it out in white, then pounced Versmark all over the top before using the same embossing powder. I stacked 4 die cuts together to raise it to the same height as the flowers.




Next up, I've got a fun card that uses the new Wonderful die together with the Counting Blessings Thankful die. I love how they work so well together! I blended Lime Rickey and All That Jazz onto some white cardstock, and cut them out, making sure that the fade-out would be about half-way up the word.

I used Tags, Etc. to create my scalloped square out of the new Sand Dunes cardstock.  Here's a video I made last fall to show how to convert a scalloped rectangle into a scalloped square.




Today is your last chance to hop, comment and win!
