February Reminder

Welcome to this months Calling All Sistahs reminder to do your monthly self-breast examination and to book your mammogram if it is due. Please be sure to visit the blog and see what the other Sistahs have made this month.
My card for you this month is Love themed since it was just Valentines Day. This background of this card was inspired by a video I watched from Jennifer McGuire, she calls this technique Ink & Stamp Layered Backgrounds.

For my background I First stamped Full on Floral Background with white pigment ink, thenlet it dry really well. Once it was dry I sponged on It's a Girl and Party Dress from Catherine Pooler Designs. Then I stamped the larger of the two stamps fromTin Roof with white pigment ink and let it dry. The final layer was stamped with Party Dress Ink using the Full on Floral stamp.  Once the card was good and dry I used a stitched Heart die to cut out my heart and added a white heat embossed sentiment by combining sentiment from both the Calling All Sistahs and Hope Ribbon stamp sets from the Calling All Sistah's Collection from Casual Fridays Stamps. (50% of the profits from the sale of items in this collectio are donated to breast cancer research and and awareness programs).  To assemble my card I mounted the backgrouns layer to a white top folding card base, added the Heart poped up on foam tape, and then to add some bling I cut strips of silver shimmer paper to the bottom and right and added a small heart cut from the same paper popped up on foam tape.

If you are still here with me I would like to say thanks for coming by my blog today and please come back for tomorrow's Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge.

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 …

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…
