PRIZES: To celebrate the new release Catherine is so awesome and 5 random winners chosen to receive two free ink pads (and free shipping!)  Announced Friday, June 22nd.

All supplies and overview of the release are at the bottom of this post!


For my first couple cards I used the new Starlights stamp set and the coordinating dies, along with the Star word die  and the Twisted Sunburst Stencil (for the first card) . Colors used: Tiara, Tiki Torch, Party Dress, Rockin' Red and Midnight.


For my next card I used the Say it with Diamonds set and created rainbow background using the diamond stamp from the set. I created grid (I have video in my day 1 hop post how to do it) and then stamped the images. This way, they are aligned nicely! Colors used: Party Dress, Rockin' Red, Tiki Torch, Limoncello, Lime Rickey, Aquatini, Juniper Mist, Grape Crush, Flirty Fuchsia, Midnight



The next card uses again the Starlights set, I drew a circle with pencil and stamped the little stars from the set inside the center. Next you can stamp the sentiment onto Midnight card stock with Versamark and emboss in white. The last card is pretty straight forward. All you need to do is stamp stars on the white panel and sentiment, then stamp larger stars onto separate piece of white card stock, die cut and adhere to the card. 
Colors used: Tiara, Tiki Torch, Flirty Fuchsia, Lime Rickey, All that Jazz 


Colors used: Rockin' Red, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Something Borrowed.

Impression Obsession: Sea You Soon

Hi stampers!
It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Sea You soon" I used few of the new dies for my card and did no stamping! Yep, you read that right, I only used die cuts for my card. 
To make the card you will start by die cutting the Sea Life Frame from Emerald card stock panel measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Then die cut the Fish Set from various card stock colors, I used Sweet corn, Wild Mango and Rose Petals. 
Next, you will assemble all the elements onto a pool colored note card. To finish it off die cut the Better at the Beach die cut from black card stock, adhere onto your card and embellish with few sequins!

Catherine Pooler Designs Sunny with a Side of Sparkle June Release Blog hop day 1

Hi Stampers! 
Welcome to Day #1 of the Catherine Pooler's new release! The new Sunny with a Side of Sparkle release is now LIVE in Catherine Pooler’s online store. This release consists of 2 new stamp sets (with available coordinating dies),  stand along STAR word die, stencil, patterned paper stack and the products from the Love is in the Air SOA that was released early this year.

And since I am the last stop in the hop, you can go back to Catherine's blog if you didn't start from the beginning. 

PRIZES: To celebrate the new release Catherine is so awesome and 5 random winners chosen to receive two free ink pads (and free shipping!)  Announced Friday, June 22nd.

All supplies and overview of the release are at the bottom of this post!


For my first couple cards I used the new Say it with Diamonds set. Watch the video below to see how this card came to be. My second card is very similar just changed the colors and sentiment used,.
The colors I used for this card are: Flirty Fuchsia, Lime Rickey, Tiara and All that Jazz.






For the second card I used: Something Borrowed, Lime Rickey, Melon Ice and Tiki Torch



For my next card I used Shea Butter and Rose petals. I stamped the images in the middle, then added two strips from Midnight card stock to frame the pattern and adhered to note card made from Midnight card stock.




Last but not the least I have a card using the Starlights stamp set and the coordinating dies. To make this card it's best to start by stamping the sentiment in the background. Stamp the one in the center of the panel then stamp above and under it. Once done stamp the little stars using Aquatini ink pad. Stamp and die cut the start using Flirty Fuchsia, Tiara and Lime Rickey ink pads. Before you move onto assembling the card stamp "you're" on Midnight card stock and emboss with white embossing powder. You are done!

Next cut a strip of Vellum and stamp and emboss the sentiment. Assemble the elements using 3D Foam Circles White Mix onto 3 3/4" x 5" piece of white card stock and adhere to kraft note card using E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
