Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Hi everyone!  Today is Day 3 of the Paradise Found Ink Release Blog Hops, my official day was yesterday.  Check out my blog post HERE!  You can start today's blog hop over on Catherine's blog.  I still have more cards to share with you all today.

This card uses the amazing plaid background stamp (which is sold out, but expected delivery to the store on Dec. 8th) and the Winter Woodland stamp set!  

I decided to stamp using blues and add silver.  Love this color combo for Christmas.

Here is another one using greens and gold.


While I had all my supplies out, I created a set of these cards.


I am adding the top card over at Color Throwdown.


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!!

PARADISE FOUND RELEASE BLOG HOP!!!


Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Paradise Found Ink Release Blog Hop Day 2!  You should have arrived here from Laurel's blog.   If you started on my blog, the complete hop list is below.

Catherine is not only releasing new 8 ink colors (WOOT!!), but new stamps/dies as well along with the Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Collection!!!


My first card today features the new colors, Royal Treatment, Daydream, & Juniper Mist.  It also features the new AWESOME Plaid Background stamp and Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set!!!!


I am SO in love with these new colors and the new products Catherine is releasing.  I started my card by stamping out the Plaid background stamp onto a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white card stock. (I did stamp 8 of these using all the colors to have them on hand for future cards.)

I then stamped the amazing sentiment onto another piece of card stock and added the adorable ornament hanging from the sentiment.  The center stamp was inked with Daydream and Juniper Mist to create an ombre colored center.

I added a rhinestone and some black & white twine to finish off my card.

Here is another card using the same products and design just different colors.


My next card features the Winter Woodland stamp set!  Love this deer image and just had to stamp him/her in all the colors in rainbow order!

Before you go make sure you comment on each stop along the hop through Friday, November 17 at 11:55am EST.  Catherine will randomly pick 3 winners for $25 gift certificates to her shop!!!

CATHERINE POOLER PARADISE FOUND INK RELEASE!!!!

Hi everyone!  Hope you saw my post from yesterday.  Catherine is releasing new inks!!  So excited to share this with you all.  Catherine's inks ROCK!!!!


Today is Blog Hop Day 1!  I'm no officially "on" for today, but I have some cards to share with you using the new inks and some new goodies Catherine is releasing in her store.  You can find all the new items by clicking HERE!!!

The Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Collection is also available in the store HERE!!!


My cards today feature some of the new ink colors and the Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set!


Yes, I had to stamp the colors in rainbow order.  Even though I am drawn to bright, fully saturated colors, these colors are going to be a staple in my collection!  Awesome for vintage/masculine cards.

Let's talk about that sentiment for a minute, it is so perfect for making Clean & Simple cards and perfect for mass producing!  The handwritten font is amazing!

Here is another one using traditional Christmas colors and a different circle stamp.  These circle stamps are used for the inside of the ornament in this set, but why not use them in a different way?  Get more mileage out of your stamps!!!


Make sure you head over to Catherine's blog to see more inspiration from the DT using these new ink colors and goodies!

I'm playing along at....

NEW INKS COMING SOON!!!!


Hi everyone!  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I'm sure you have seen some of the posts I have shared of Catherine's new ink line.  These colors are so beautiful!

Here's how the Spa collection differs from the Party collection:

-Party Collection Colors are high saturation colors...bright and vivid.  

-Spa Collection Colors are low saturation colors...muted (but not muddy).

Catherine has been revealing the colors over the past week or so.  


My favorite color is Daydream!  It is a gorgeous blue and so pretty stamped.  Catherine will be revealing the next two colors today at 10am EST on Facebook live.

The full ink release along with some new stamps/dies will be available to purchase tomorrow in Catherine's store!!!

Here's a peek at one of my projects using Peppermint Scrub ink and the new stamps being released!  So excited to share more with you tomorrow!


Thank you for visiting and I will see you back here tomorrow for more!  Have a great Monday!

Gold Christmas Peek

Hi everyone!  This week's Christmas Card Challenge over at StampNation is to use Gold.  I love using Gold on my Christmas cards.

Here is a peek at my card...


Members can view the challenge HERE!!  I embossed the trees and sentiment using Gold embossing powder.

I also wanted to share a photo of my good friends, Maureen & Laurel!  We got to get together yesterday for a fun day of stamping.  I am so thankful we are all close enough to be able to do this.  Stamping with friends is always so much fun!

Inspired by All the Little Things


Hi everyone!  I'm sharing a card inspired by the inspiration photo over at Inspired by All the Little Things challenge blog.


Isn't it gorgeous?!  I was definitely inspired by the chalkboard above the mantle and the colors green  & red.  I used the Good Stuff stamp and die set from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Collection to create my focal point.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from Papertrey Ink onto the tag after white heat embossing the border.  I added the holly and berries to the bottom of my tag and added it to my scored card base with dimensional adhesive.  Black & White twine finishes off my card.

Also playing over at.....

Merry Christmas


Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  I'm sharing a card I made for the Merry Monday Challenge today!  Use kraft and red!  I love using these colors on my Christmas cards so this was right up my alley!

I stamped the Ornamental Background stamp and white heat embossed onto kraft card stock.  I added some red glitter stickles to the center of each ornament and white heat embossed my sentiment on a strip of kraft card stock.  Red twine finishes off my card.  So simple and easy to create!


I'm also going to add this over at Christmas Card Challenges.



Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Joy to the World


Hi everyone!  I'm back today sharing a card inspired by this card and one of Elizabeth's cards over at Muse: Christmas Visions.

I love these snowflakes and in pink? Yes, please!!  The font on the sentiment is one of my favorites too!  As you can see I was inspired by Elizabeth's snowflake card.  I focused on the colors, snowflakes and Joy sentiment.  

Here is another one in purple and less snowflakes.


I will add this one over at Christmas Card Challenge.

Sending Birthday Wishes


Hi everyone!  I was browsing pinterest the other day and was inspired by some cards I saw over there.  I used Eva's Favorite Flowers in rainbow colors to stamp around the tag die from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval collection.  I used one of my favorite birthday sentiments from the Enchanted Garden stamp set.

I can see creating this same card using snowflakes in place of the flowers and adding a Holiday sentiment in the center.  Hmm..stay tuned!

I am adding this over at Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.

Merry Monday - Ornaments


Hi everyone!  Sharing a card today that was inspired by the challenge over at Merry Monday: Add an ornament to your Christmas card.  

I stamped the ornamental background stamp and glued a piece of card stock over it that I had die cut with a circle die.  I added the silver bow, sentiment and some sequins to finish off this clean and simple card.  While I had my supplies out I made a bunch of these in different colors.


I was able to create 7 of these in no time.  


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
