Catherine Pooler Designs:: The Perfect Reason :: And a Giveaway!!


Did you take advantage of the Flash Sale at Catherine Pooler Designs where these stamp sets and dies I'm featuring on my two cards today were on sale? The Perfect Reason Bundle, along with You Did It! Stamps make for perfect graduation cards or encouragement cards! For this first card, I started with a base of Sand Dunes Cardstock, then stamped some of the quirky, whimsical and utterly fun flowers and leaves onto premium White Card Stock using a mix of the Spa Collection: Zen Garden Inks and the Spa Collection: Paradise Found Inks. A few of the pieces I mounted with dimensional adhesive, and finished the card with a sentiment from You Did It! and some baker's twine.


This next card features how The Perfect Reason Dies can make for a fun card as well!


Here I started with a White Card Stock base, and die cut a number of flowers and leaves from solid colored cardstock from the  The Perfect Reason Dies and finished with a sentiment from You Did It! stamped with Melon Ice Ink. I added just a spattering of white Nuvo Drops as well.


So now on to the GIVEAWAY! If you leave a comment, you can win the The Perfect Reason Bundle from Catherine Pooler Designs. Comment below by Sunday Evening, and I will pick one comment randomly to win. (Open to US only, due to shipping restrictions.) (affiliate links used)


Tracie Pond, my talented teammate at Catherine Pooler Designs, also has a giveaway going on! Please stop by this post on her blog to see her amazing creation and comment to win.

**Edited to Add: The giveaway winner is Carmen! Carmen, I'll be in touch to mail your items, enjoy!**
