Candy Cane Lane Stamp Of Approval Collection

I received my SOA Box just a few days ago and I LOVE it!! Today I want to share a few cards I have made since getting my collection.

First..
I cased a card by Lisa Harrole, I loved her card so much I had to remake it. For the background I used the Peppermint Stick Background stamp. I cut out the large labels from the Merry Labels die set and stamped the sentiment from the Merry and Bright stamp set and also the branches and ornaments from the same set. I added some ribbon to the centre and adhered the label with foam tape to give it some dimension.

My second card...
uses the stag from the Hip Holidays stamp set, which I think is super cute with the added patterns to his chest and ears. There is even a little stamp for his eyes and nose!!  Again I used the large label and the die from the Merry Labels die set and the Christmas is from the Merry and Bright stamp set. I added the red fishtail banner for a pop of color.

The Third card...
I used the "Crooky Tree" and Merry Christmas sentiment stamps from the Hip Holiday stamp set. I love this tree and all of the patterns and solid pieces/layers in this set. I added and embellishment made with the Funky Flake dies from last years Holiday Magic SOA Collection.

Finally for today my fourth card...

I used my MISTI with a template by Maureen Wong, to repeat stamp the branch and then berries from Merry and Bright stamp set. I used the small label die from Merry Labels die set and stamped and embossed the Noel from Hip Holiday. The red frames were left over from a previous card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come back soon as I have another stamp set from this collection I have not gotten inky yet :)

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

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…
