Toteally Fantastic

Today, I finished up my swaps for the Gina K. January swap. I can't post it until the swap is complete and everyone has their swaps back. I can tell you it took me many mock ups, three days and a lot of work to complete them and I'm happy with what I've created. :) For my card today, I used my previously uninked stamp set Toteally Fantastic. I combined the sketch and Who's that girl challenges for it. The theme for the challenge was to use patriotic colors, red white and blue. Being from Canada, ours would leave out the blue and only have red and white. However, in support of my US sistahs I left in the blue and added some pink for me. LOL I lined up the three totes on a clear mount and stamped them on Gina K pure luxury white cardstock. It was my first time using it and it is sooooo smooth. The purses were atamped with Brilliance graphite black ink and colored with copics. Next, I layered them on night of navy and pretty in pink cardstock. The DP was printed using my printer and the red kiss digi paper from MFT. The sentiment was stamped using night of navy ink, the edges were drug across a read red ink pad, then mounted in night of navy. I assembled the whole think on a pretty in pink card base and added the flowers, which were originally light blue and pink but I colored them with copics. The flowers were attached together using a silver heart brad, and secured to the card with foam mounting tape. Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Susan

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am glad you were able to hop along with us today to celebrate Michelle's 50th Birthday!!  



You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the  CAS-ual Fridays Blog
Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
