Are you a fan of Catherine Pooler Designs?
Me, I'm slightly addicted.
I got to know Catherine, first on YouTube then
I became a StampNation member and when she opened
CP Designs...well, let's just say my stamping hasn't been the same.
I faithfully watch with great anticipation for each new Stamp of Approval Collection.
The last of which was Winterhaven.
So when it arrived I got busy and made just a few holiday cards.
Now you know me, I'm a technique driven, clean and simple kind of cardmaker.
I like cards that are easy to create but pack a punch and I think these cards do that.
The first three include "stamping" with a stencils and water or perfect pearls mist and
a Brutus Monroe Embossing Powder embossed sentiment from the Winterhaven SOA.
This next card was my first attempt at a galaxy background using Distress Oxide Inks.
Stamps are from the Winterhaven SOA and are embossed with Brutus Monroe Alabaster EP.
Then I got out the Delicata Inks and the amazing background stamp from the Winterhaven SOA.
Let's just say I might have gotten carried away.
In case you haven't figured it out yet...I'm in LOVE with this stamp!
I used it, some dark navy, black and white cardstocks and Delicata Silver, Gold and Black Shimmer inks and to finish them off some Nuvo Drops.
I used the Joy Wreath die set for the first few and
stacked several die cuts on top of each other for dimension.
The rest have the Merry Christmas sentiment heat embossed using Brutus Monroe and Ranger embossing powders in metallic colors or stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black and clear ep.
Seriously, these pics don't do them justice.
They shimmer and sparkle and
they were so simple to make.
Stop back next week for more SOA holiday fun.
