Paradise found blog hop


Hi Stampers! 
Welcome to Day #2 of the Catherine Pooler's new release! The new Paradise Found release is now LIVE in Catherine Pooler’s online store. This release consists of eight AMAZING inks from her new Spa Collection, two new stamp sets (with available coordinating dies), a background stamp, and two new dies.
Products from the Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval collection is also available for individual sale in Catherine’s store. The only exception is the All That Jazz ink pad from that collection. It won’t be available for purchase until some time in 2018. 
Since there are so many new items, check out What’s New section in Catherine’s store to find the new items this release. They are some yummy sequins too, and glitter embossing powder!!! 
You should have arrived here from Catherine’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 Laurel Beard and you don't want to miss her amazing creations.
Now let's move to the cards. For my first one I used the Birds of a Feather set and coordinating dies. I stamped the feather in Sauna ink and embossed with WOW gold glitter embossing powder only part of it. I die cut couple feathers and embossed them. I stamped the sentiment in Versmark and embossed with the same embossing powder. I did same with the sentiment. When I had all the elements I assembled my card.  





For my next card I used the "Wonderful time of the year" set. I first created my watercolor wash using : Daydream, Royal Treatment and Juniper Mist ink pads. Then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. For the snowflakes I used Wow Silver Glitter embossing powder. I added some sequins and adhered to black note card. 




I am in LOVE with this Plain Background! I stamped it on black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. I used the already released Merry and Bright Boughs set to create the sentiment and I used Peppermint Scrub and Eucalyptus ink  pads for the berries, heart and branches. The little heart is from the Birds of a Feather set ;) 








For my last, but not the least card today I used the new Wonderful Time of the year and did some multi color/ombre stamping using my MISTI. I used Green Tea and Eucalyptus ink pads for the branches. For the ornaments I combined Juniper Mist, Royal Treatment and the Aquatini ink pad from the Party collection. Then stamped the top parts with Versamark (using my MISTI) and embossed with Silver Glitter embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Merry and Bright Boughs and stamped it with Juniper Mist ink pad. Added some sequins and adhered to my Navy card base.
