Birthday Balloons

Hi all, 

This week is my last week as Guest Design Team member over at StampNation. I have enjoyed every minute of it. This week we were asked to draw inspiration from one of the StampNation members Gallery she goes by Owleyes. I browsed her Gallery a few times and one card really stood out to me. My card today is a CASE of her Birthday card. I used the same layout and colors, but different stamps.

I used the HB2U stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs for the Young at Heart Stamp of Approval Collection. This set is available this week in Catherine Pooler's Online Store. Then again when the store opens permanently in August. the store contains all of the stamps dies and stencils from the first three SOA collections and three brand new products by Catherine Pooler Designs, two new stamp sets and one set of ampersand dies. I have ordered them all and they will arrive this week!!

Thanks for stopping by

Catherine Pooler's New Online Store

There’s a new online paper crafting store….and I was one of the first to check it out! Catherine Pooler announced the other day a soft opening of her new online shop – one that will sell older Stamp of Approval Collections (SOA) – and her brand new line of stamps – Catherine Pooler Designs!

The store opens Saturday June 25th at 9 AM EST to StampNation members and the next day to newsletter subscribers. If there’s something you’ve been dying to have, don’t miss out – the soft opening is only 5 days till it’s permanently open in August!

I ordered the three new stamps and dies (shown above) and also the new dies to go with Eva's favorite flowers.

I was a bit worried about the looming Canada Post strike and my ability to get these products in my hands. I emailed Catherine and she added more shipping options to get our orders to us including Fedex and UPS.  Thank you Catherine!!

Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Welcome to the Calling all Sistahs Blog hop!!

It's the 17th of the month, and you know what that means. It is time for your reminder to do your monthly self-exams and schedule your yearly mammograms. 

Michelle from CAS-ual Friday's designed a line of stamps and dies especially for this cause when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. You can read her story here.

I have made two cards for this hop used the Calling All Sistahs stamp set and Ribbon of Hope stamp set.

My first card was stamped and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I decided to add a frame and it was embossed three times to make it look metallic.

My second card was embossed with white embossing powder, colored with distress inks. I added some water drops to the ink and then used a paper towel to remove the water after about 10 seconds. I love the distressed look. The fishtail flags were also inked up and embossed with black and white embossing powder.

Thank you for hopping today and remember this month there will be a $15 Gift Certificate given to 3 people that comment along the hop. You have until May 19th @ midnight EST to comment.

Happy Birthday to You!!

I made this card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #147 - Birthday Girl. I used the Tin Roof stamp and embossed it in silver. I cut down that panel with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. Next I layered the panel in a piece of silver cardstock, and mounted on this on a card base of blue violet from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from All About You by CAS-ual Fridays. I cut the words apart to make the sentiment horizontal and stamped it on a stitched fishtail tag of the same blue violet cardstock and embossed it in white. The die cut You is Is from the 2 Yous dies from CAS-ual Fridays. I die cut 3 white and 1 blue violet and layered the 3 white die cuts together and embossed the top 3 times with silver embossing powder and finished by mounting them on the blue violet die slightly offset.

Thank you for coming by and having a look.  Susan

Tin Roof

OMG!!! I got the Tin Roof stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays today and it is Beautiful!!  I could not wait to play with it!!
I started with the larger of the two Tin Roof stamps and inked it up with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I then inked the panel with Distress inks.  I die cut the Thanks from the panel using the Smiling Fri-dies. The panel was then mounted over a purple piece of cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the  Bravo stamp set on a white stitched flag die cut.

For my second card I used the smaller Tin Roof image stamp and embossed it with black embossing powder. I used my Gansai watercolors to color my Panel.  Once it was dried I used a wavy die to cut out a section of the card panel. The word Smile is from the new Smiling Fri-dies. and I used the wavy die to line up the sentiment from the Hope Ribbon stamp set onto the card panel between the wavy panel pieces.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look :)
