Hey There Crafty Friends! It’s sneak peek day at Catherine Pooler for the final bundle, Zest, of the new Forever 13 release scheduled for Wednesday at 9:00 AM EST. If you are a member of CP’s StampNation, early ordering has already begun, and SN members receive a free 2″ X 3″ stamp set for ordering early.
Finally, I can begin sharing some of my new cards for this release! Today, I have a card that I heat embossed using the new Fresh Squeezed background stamp with Wanderlust WOW glitter embossing powder on watercolor paper, and then watercolored using CP ink refills. Now, here is a tip: Wanderlust is a WOW glitter embossing powder in the CP store, and it’s a little chunky to use with watercoloring. You will not get the smooth, clean edge you get with a fine detail powder. I just wanted to warn you before you use it, and may not like the results. It’s just a glitter powder verses a fine detail powder. However, I like the glittery result on this! Also, I embossed the background on CP white cardstock using the Fresh Squeezed stamp and Wanderlust embossing powder for extra glitter-iness!
I used Suede Shoes ink directly to the CP cardstock to create my own colored backgrounds for extra pop! Also, I used it as the background color on the watercolor panel. Next I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the Zest Bouquet StampSet on vellum, and wrapped around the dies cut using the Nested Oval Dies. You know I love to add lots of dimension with foam tape, and completed it all with some pretty yellow and white twine.
So, what do you think? I love how the yellows and oranges pop with the blues, and everyone needs this set of oval dies as a staple in their collection! This is such a fun release. Have you seen everything else? It’s all so totally cool! Happy shopping. Love and crafty hugs!
