Catherine Pooler Designs December Release - Blog Hop

 Good morning! Today is the Blog Hop celebrating the December release from Catherine Pooler Designs!


This release was split into 3 bundles, and I focused on the Snowy Day bundle.


First up, a festive thank you card using the new Thank You Layered die as well as the Geometric Flakes Cover Plate. I cut the coverplate from white cardstock and used a foam dauber to blend Rockin' Red ink on each flake. 

I cut the Thank You Layered die from white cardstock and then inked up the letters with Rockin' Red, fading it out to white on the bottoms. I love the frosty look this technique gives to the letters!



Next is a pair of cards that feature the Snowy Day Patterned Paper and the Delicate Snowflake die. I cut circles with the larger circle die from the Snow Globe die set from the  white cardstock, and then from two of the blue-based patterns. Then I cut the Delicate Snowflake from each one and pieced the patterned paper 'pizza slices' back into the snowflake.


Of course I ended up with a snowflake from each pattern, so it was really quick to offset them and create another card with the pale blue gingham pattern cut with a stitched rectangle from the Postage Stamp Dies. Both cards used the Merry & Bright sentiment from Peaceful Flakes. The first card uses it in a row (after some stamp surgery!) and the second one uses it in its original form.



Finally, I used Peaceful Flakes and the matching dies to create this simple but sparkly snowflake card. I stamped the small snowflakes with Black Jack ink randomly on my Smoke background panel. I stamped and coloured the largest snowflake on a circle cut with the larger circle die from Snow Globe die set. I used the matching die to cut it out, before coating it with Versamark ink and embossing with Wanderlust embossing powder. I popped it up on foam tape and turned it to offset it with the negative cut from the circle panel.


Here's the blog hop list - be sure to hop and comment for your chance to win! (Prize details on Catherine's blog)

Adding the pop of red to the geometric snowflake die plate really lets you see the snowflakes. Previously I was having a hard time seeing the snowflakes. Great cards.
