Hi Crafty Friends, and welcome to the Catherine Pooler & Colorado Craft Company Fall Blog Hop! I’m thrilled that you are hopping along today, and joining all of us to celebrate two fabulous companies in one of our favorite crafting seasons.

This first card features the Colorado Craft Company Lovely Legs Seasons – Autumn stamp set paired with the Thanks die, Fall Pick-N-Mix patterned paper, and Mystic Sequin Mix. I couldn’t help but Copic color this gorgeous stamp in sepia tones then matched with the Daydream CP ink for contrast.

How adorable is this new Dorothy inspired Ruby Slippers stamp from CCC? I Copic colored this big and bold stamp, and added WOW Catherine Pooler embossing powder in Rockin’ Red for extra glimmer and shine.

Honestly, I loved this sentiment from the Ruby Slippers stamp set so much that I wanted to create a card and just have the sentiment in the middle of a white card, but you know I couldn’t leave it at that. So I created my own tornado with CP inks and a finger dauber, and then I scribbled a whirlwind over it. Finally, I heat embossed the two wands, fussy cut, and adhered them with a few CP sequins and that awesome sentiment. How fun is that?

  1. Such a wonderful trio of cards! I love the colour blue you chose to use with the sepia toned image. The bits of glitter at the toes of & on the bows of the shoes is a nice touch. The tornado you created looks great too. This Seasons Girl Autumn stamp set is one I’d like to have.


  2. 😍Elegant cards! The blues & browns are so beautiful, I never could have thought of that on my own thanks for sharing! I am enjoying this hop, love visiting all the blogs, seeing all the beautiful cards & learning new techniques & color combinations! 😊


  3. This is my first hop in years! So excited I’m off work healing from shoulder surgery. This is exactly what the doctor ordered. beautiful cards!


  4. Erin, those ruby red slippers make my heart sparkle! Your cards are gorgeous! Thanks so much for the inspiration. Have a lovely day!


  5. This release has so many options and layout plans. Your cards here are just that. The tornado humor is the cutest. Thanks for sharing your talent.


  6. Love the “tornado” you scribbled on the last card and you definitely know how to color on the other cards. Great job!


  7. These are fabulous. I adore references from The Wizard of Oz and those darn ruby slippers are AWESOME (the sentiment is the best).


  8. Love your cards. I am with you – I would almost buy that stamp set for the “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?”sentiment alone! The shoe stamp is so unusual – I think it encapulates one of the two big costumes I loved as a kid. First, I wanted a pair of red sequin shoes and second, I really really wanted a dress like Glenda the Good Witch. I may just buy that stamp!


  9. Erin your cards made me smile. It’s impossible to pick a favorite but I do love your “good witch/bad witch” card idea. Fabulous!


  10. Erin, the sepia color on your first card was a brilliant. Love it! The ruby slippers really pop with thre rockin’ red embossing powder. And, I have to say that your tornado is genius. That was my school mascot. “Tuffy Tornado!” TFS!


  11. I love the daydream ink from CP on this card, perfect contrast! Your coloring has lovely highlights against that gorgeous ink. Now the tornado is genius! Look how its blended right into dimension. I love that!
