Catherine Pooler Designs All That Jazz Blog Day 1

Hi Stampers! 
Welcome to Day #1 of the Catherine Pooler's March release! The new All That Jazz release will be LIVE in Catherine Pooler’s online store on Tuesday, March 20th at 9am EST. This release consists All that Jazz ink, 2 background stamps, 6x8 stamp set and coordinating dies, 2 word dies, one new stencil, vellum, sand dunes card stock and Black Tie Gala patterned paper, plus the Stamp of Approval Counting Blessings collection. 
You should have arrived here from Justine's blog, but if you didn’t, you can find the whole blog hop list at the bottom of this post. 
And your next stop will be Maureen and you don't want to miss her amazing creations.
I have couple cards to share with you today. The first one uses the new Sand Dunes card stock along with the vellum. I used the new Square Dance stencil and applies Gel transfer medium, let it dry and applied Opal foil using my mini Minc Machine. I die cut piece of vellum using Tags etc dies (Counting blessings SOA), stamped the floral from the new Grateful Heart floral using versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. As well I stamped "for you" from the Autumn Blessings set (SOA). I die cut Thankful three times from Premium white card stock and adhered them together. I used Nuvo shimmer pen to add some sparkle. I assembled my card and added some twine.

For my second card I used the new Polka dot background stamp and stamped with It's a Boy ink. Stamped the floral from Grateful Hearts and die cut it. I added some Nuvo Shimmer Pen and Crystal Effects. I added sentiment, little strip from the Black Tie Gala patterned paper. Stamped sentiment from Leaf Motifs set and assembled my card.

Impression Obsession - Any Holiday

Hi stampers! 

Welcome to another Impression Obsession challenge! This time around it's Any Holiday. So, with Easter fast approaching and the new dies from Impression obsession, I decided to make an Easter card and I used no stamping ( shocker, I know). I used the new Happy Easter die and the bunny border die. I added some coloring with Copics and assembled my card. I am very pleased how it turned out.

Reverse Confetti - Sketch for you to try

Hi Stampers! 
Today I have something little bit different for you, not in style, but I am playing along with Reverse Confetti sketch challenge (Sketch for you to try #58). I was making some teacher's gifts and working on another project and video (coming soon), so while I was at it I made one more card ;)

Three Favorite Companies with Three Awesome Releases

Hi Stampers! 
Happy Friday! I don't have any eye candy for today (I fell asleep last night as soon as I got my kids to bed, so I didn't get a chance to edit any pictures). I will try to post tonight!!! I promise! 

But, today is a big day! Three of my favorite companies had releases. 
First is Studio Katia!!!! I wish I could buy the ENTIRE release! But that would have required me getting another job lol. So I got several things (3 sets and coordinating dies, stand alone dies and some embellishments). One of my favorites is this Japanese Peony set!!! and it comes with coordinating dies, too! 

Next up, is Neat and Tangled! I love their entire release, but the Friendly Florals set and coordinating dies stood out to me! 

Last, but certainly NOT the least is Concord and 9th. And there is a new Semicircle turnabout bundle , that I can't wait to play with!
