Welcome Home February 2019 Release:: Catherine Pooler Designs



Are you ready for Catherine Pooler Designs newest release, Welcome Home!? There are so many awesome products released this go round, I have a feeling that you will love them all like I do!


My first card features the super sweet Happy Place Stamp Set and coordinating Happy Place Dies. I love these large houses that are perfect for any kind of coloring, or just stamping! I stamped these in Juniper Mist onto Bristol paper and colored them in with Zig markers. They were mounted to a Smoke Cardstock panel that had been stamped with a pattern from the Strolling Borders Stamp Set with Stone Blue Ink. I finished with a sentiment from the new Warm Welcome Stamp Set.


I love this next card! I started with a card base made from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. I masked off the bottom portion and then used the awesome, large Marble Swirl Stamp Set to create a background pattern using Melon Ice, It's a Boy and Limoncello Inks. (By the way, did you see the coordinating embossing powders for Melon Ice? You can find them here!) I did a quick mask of the plants before stamping the background. I then stamped the super cool office/house plants from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set in Midnight Ink and colored them in with Copics.


I finished with a beautiful sentiment from the Cottage Corsage Stamp Set.
