Catherine Pooler Designs: Oh, Baby

Hi everyone,
 Today I am sharing super cute baby card using the new Catherine Pooler designs set Born to be Wild and the coordinating dies, along with the new A to Z Background stamp.

To make the card start by stamping the background using your MISTI to create the ombre look. Use soft towel or ink blending brushes to soften the edges of each section when you ink the stamp to have smoother transition between the colors.
Die cut the Zebra and keep the negative. Position the negative in your MISTI and the first layer stamp (striped). Stamp in black. Do the same thing for the second layer (feet and face) and stamp in pink. 
Die cut a circle from vellum and assemble your card.

Hero Arts August My Monthly Hero Blog Hop, Giveaway + Video

Hi stampers!

Welcome to the August My Monthly Hero release blog hop. This is yet another kit you don't want to miss!!!It's all about Stacation which is pretty appropriate for the current time and circumstances we live in at the moment with the global pandemic.
If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Jentte Kausen blog and your next stop is Emily Midgett
So lets get started.
First I have a little light box/shadow bow with light string in it and I have video showing you how to make it! 
Some of the important dimensions are:
Periwinkle cardstock piece for the tray/shadow box is 7 1/2" x 8 4/3" and you will need to score at 1" and 2" at all four sides. 
Nautical cardstock pieces (you need 2): 5" x 4 3/4" . Score the 4 3/4" side at 1" and 4 1/2" so you have two "flaps" measuring 1" and 1/4". Do the same on both piece
Insert (stamped piece): 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Watch the video below to see how this project came to be (or click HERE).

Next is card using the main kit. I stamped, die cut and colored the images and added some accents using white gel pen. I created window using the circle infinity dies and ink blended the background using Tide Pool ink (video for this card coming shortly)

Then, we have a card using couple Add-ons, the US Map Infinity dies, Mi Casa Camp set for the sentiment and State-cation bold prints. I cut bunch of strips and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, once dried I stamped the bold prints using Embossing ink and embossed in ultra fine clear embossing powder. 
I die cut the 2nd to the largest map from Dove white cardstock and used the negative to adhere on top of the stripped background. Stamped sentiment on Nautical cardstock, embossed in white and trimmed to size to adhere onto the panel. Adhere the entire piece to a Paradise note card!
