Catherine Pooler Designs:: Sunny with a Side of Sparkle Release



Are you ready for Sunny with a Side of Sparkle- the newest, awesome release from Catherine Pooler Designs?! (affiliate links used) This collection features stamps, coordinating dies, stand-alone dies, a stencil, a super pretty patterned paper pack and then individual items from the Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Collection.  Wow!

I've got a few projects to showcase today for the first day of the blog hop-although all items are now available! 


My first card features the Starlights Stamp Set, Starlights coordinating dies, Peacock & Paisleys Patterned Paper Pack, and the Postage Stamp Dies. I went with an 80's vibe and I love how it turned out!


My next card features the show-stopping Say it in Diamonds Stamp Set! Some simple stamping (with the help of a MISTI) and Nuvo Drops completed this card.



Going back to stars with this card, as it features the Star Word Die, stamped in an ombre of inks. I used-starting from the top- Peppermint Scrub, Rockin' Red, Mandarin Spice Tutti Fruiti, Orange Twist, Tiki Torch, Sauna inks. 


I finished with a sentiment from the Starlights Stamp Set.


I saved my favorite card for last! I started by creating a card base using the Postage Stamp DiesThis created my "grass" base. I added a sky with blue cardstock and It's a Boy inked through the new Twisted Sunburst Stencil


I then die cut clouds and a hot air balloon from the Love is in the Air Stamp Set and coordinating Love is in the Air Dies, added my own details with a black marker. I finished with a die cut sentiment from Thanks.


Please be sure to hop and comment, as there are prizes! 5 random winners chosen to receive two free ink pads (and free shipping!)  Winners will be announced on Catherine's blog, the evening of Friday, June 22.


Here is the complete list of the Creative Team that are hopping today:
