Catherine Poole Designs Hello Sunshine Release



Are you ready for Catherine Pooler Designs newest release, Hello Sunshine? It's available today! There are so many awesome products for spring and summer released this go round, I have a feeling that you will love them all like I do! I am showcasing the beautiful and fun Whimsy Bundle.


I'm starting off with my favorite card made from some of the many products in this release. My card base is the made from the awesome Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, which is the perfect cardstock for bases as well as die cuts, coloring, well, pretty much anything! I softly blended some Daydream Ink and then added some splatters in the same color. On top of this, I die cut the Whimsical Blooms Stamp Set with the Whimsical Blooms Dies and used Black Jack Ink and Sauna Ink.


I finished this card with a few sequins from the new Phoenix Sequins Mix, as well as a die cut layered sentiment using a pattern from the new Whimsical Blooms 6x6 Paper Pack and Smoke Cardstock, as well as the previously released Wonderful Die.


My second card also features the Whimsical Blooms Stamp Set, but in an out of the box way! I stamped two of the blooms in It's a Girl and Party Dress Inks onto Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, and added some doodles to resemble ballerina poses.


I framed the ballerinas with a soft inking of Juniper Ink over the Flourish & Whimsy Stencil, and added a sentiment from A Note of Thanks Stamp Set in Black Jack Ink.


My final card today features some fun and cute items from the Whimsy Bundle! Once again, I started with a cardbase made from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. I die cut a shape using the second largest die from the Fitted Frames Dies from a cherry pattern from the Whimsical Blooms 6x6 Paper Pack. I then doodled some scallops with a black marker.


On the interior of the frame, I added a die cut sentiment from the Thanks Die, and embellished with some Ebony Black Crystal Drops by Nuvo and a cherry stamped with the Whimsical Blooms Stamp Set and die cut with the Whimsical Blooms Dies.
