Catherine Pooler Designs: Don't Stop Until You're Proud

Hi everyone!

The Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval is live for the general public. There are only limited number of boxes remaining. So hurry up! Head over Catherine Pooler's store to get yours and in mean time there are some add-ons too and new items in the store ;)

In meantime here is another card I made using the box collecting along with Tropically Yours dies. 
To make the card I started with creating the background. You'll want to use a long acrylic block or a MISTI to stamp the background. I used green card stock from my stash and stamped with Lime Rickey ink (I think this is my favorite green). I trimmed it and set it aside. I stamped the hibiscus flovers and leaves using Tiki Torch and the new Coral Cabana, along with Icing on the Cake, Melon Ice and Lime Rickey. Die cut them and set them aside. Cut a panel from white card stock, stamp sentiment from Fearless Pursuit using Midnight ink and assemble your card.

Catherine Pooler's Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval is LIVE!

Hi everyone!

The Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval is live for the general public. Since last night when it went on sale for the Stamp Nation members who attended t he PJ party, then for those on the wait list, only 30% of the boxes remain in stock. So hurry up! Head over Catherine Pooler's store to get yours and in mean time there are some add-ons too and new items in the store ;)

In meantime here are couple more cards I made using the collection!
For this card I used the Fearless Pursuit set along with the Stand tall set and dies.
To create the background use Orange Twist, Rockin' Red and Tiara inks along with mini ink blending tool. Stamp the images in black and the sentiment. Cut piece of Midnight card stock to create the "ground". Set it aside.
Stamp the Flamingo in Midnight, color with Copics and die cut. Assemble your card.



Next is a card using again Fearless Pursuit set and dies along with Good Vibes borders. To create the sun, cut a circle mask and do some reverse masking and blending using Orange Twist, Tiki Torch and Tiara inks. STamp and die cut the palm trees using Grass Skirt and Icing on the cake inks. For the sentiment, stamp it on Midnight card stock and emboss in white. Cut to size.
Assembled your card ;)

For my card today I used:
My Heart is Warm stamp
Snowman Wreath 

I stamped the image onto white card stock and colored with Prismacolor and Chameleon pencils. Once done,  I stamped the sentiment and adhered to a pink note card.
I wanted the coloring to take central stage, so kept my card clean and simple.
