Catherine Pooler's Designs: Perfect Reason and Peacock and GIVEAWAY!

Hi stampers! 
Happy Wednesday! I have couple cards for you and a GIVEAWAY!!! Yesterday I turned 40 !!!! Where did the time go? Seriously!!!! So, I thought it was a perfect timing for a give away. I was going to post yesterday, but work was insane, and then I was to tired to write. Anyway, enough about me. 
Giveaway detail at the bottom of this post!! 
Today I have two cards using the Perfect Reason and Perfect Peacock stamps by Catherine Pooler Designs! I just love those two sets. 
For my first card I stamped the images from both sets onto CP Designs Premium White card stock and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I arranged all elements onto a panel of Midnight card stock and adhered them. Next I stamped "Happy" from the Simply Stated set and embossed with white embossing powder. Next I stamped "mother's day" on separate piece and embossed with white embossing powder. Trimmed to size and adhered to my panel. I adhered it to top folding note card and added white Nuvo drops as finishing touch


For my second card I did similar thing, but only used the Perfect reason set. I stamped the sentiment onto Midnight card stock and embossed with white. Trimmed and adhered to Midnight panel. Stamped flowers and leaves onto Premium White card stock and die cut. I arranged them onto the panel and adhered. Adhered the panel onto Midnight top folding note cards and added white Nuvo drops to finish it off. 


GIVEAWAY: Leave comment on this post for a chance to win a Perfect Reason Stamp and Die bundle! You need to leave a comment by April 18th 11.59PM EST. I will announce the winner shorly after!

Congrats on turning 40! I had the same, "what happened?" moment when it hit me too, and I'll be 50 in a couple years. Betting that one will be tougher. Good thing I have time to prepare for it! LOL Love the cards; so colorful on the black backgrounds!
