Catherine Pooler Designs and Colorado Craft Company Blog Hop


Welcome to the Catherine Pooler Designs and Colorado Craft Company Blog Hop! If you are following along on the hop, you should have arrived from the talented Bibi Cameron!



My first collaboration card features the gorgeous fall image, Lovely Legs Autumn Season Girl from Colorado Craft Company stamped in Catherine Pooler Design's Icing on the Cake Ink onto Bristol Smooth paper. I then colored the image with some ink colors from the Spa lineLemongrass, Orange Peel, Daydream, and Mandarin Spice Inks with a blender pen. Love how the inks blended for a vintage look! I finished the card with with a die-cut sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs Just Thanks Die cut from the Fall Pick-N-Mix Patterned Paper Pack, along with a strip from another pattern from the same paper pack.


My next card features the fun Big Bold Ruby Slippers Stamp Set from Colorado Craft Company stamped in Midnight Ink onto Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. To color the image, I simply outlined the interior edges with copic markers. I painted the slippers with some red glitter glaze and then inked the bottom edges of the card with Sauna and Tiara Ink to mimic a yellow brick road. Catherine Pooler inks react so well with water, so I sprinkled some water droplets on the card as well.


I finished the card with a stamped sentiment from Magnetic Messages Stamp Set and clear sequins.

Your next stop on the hop is the fabulously talented Emily!

  3. Your Autumn Season Girl card is wonderful. I love the colours you used & the pile of leaves around & behind her reminds me of how fun it is to walk through piles of maple leaves in the fall. I also like that you gave her the look of wearing blue jeans. The Ruby slippers look super with the glaze on them.
