Catherine Pooler Designs:: Kind of Batty Release



Are you ready for Kind of Batty- the newest, awesome release from Catherine Pooler Designs?! This collection features stamps, coordinating dies, stand-alone dies and two new ink colors. It is a delightful mix of Halloween, Autumn and every day.  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 many items from the new release together, and I love how it turned out! I started with Sand Dunes Cardstock card base that had been stamped with the Angled Squares Background Stamp in the new Sand Castle Ink. Isn't that such a lovely combination? I then created some autumn leaves from the Hello Autumn Stamp Set and Hello Autumn Dies. The combination of inks I used were Sauna, Tiki Torch, Orange Twist and Mandarin Spice, then Limencello, Sauna, and Green Tea and the green combination is Sauna, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, and Spruce. I used the new Three of a Kind Dies (the first two layers) to create the focal sentiment, the color is Polished. I finished the sentiment from stamps from the Kind of Wonderful Stamp Set.



My next card features the show-stopping Spiderweb Background Stamp that pairs so perfectly with the Spooky Hollow Stamps and Spooky Hollow Dies! I did some simple stamping and coloring with Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped the Spiderweb Background Stamp with the new Twilight Ink onto some bright purple cardstock. I stamped some images from the Spooky Hollow Stamps onto Mirror Cardstock with Midnight Ink and then die cut them with the Spooky Hollow Dies, watercolored with Distress Oxide Inks and arranged them as a little scene onto the card. 



Please be sure to hop and comment, as there are prizes! 5 random winners chosen to receive a $25 gift certificate to the Catherine Pooler Store! Winners will be announced on Catherine's blog, the evening of Monday, August 20th.
