Catherine Pooler Tropical Treasures Blog Hop

Catherine Pooler Tropical Treasures Blog Hop

Welcome to our celebration of the Tropical Treasures Release from Catherine Pooler Designs. We are blog hopping today. Daniel West here with a few cards to highlight the warmth of the tropical designs in this beautiful collection of stamps, dies and other goodies.

I have included a list of the entire hop for today below. Leave a comment on each blog! With each comment you have an entry to the drawing for $25 to shop Catherine Pooler Designs.

For my first card, I made a shaker using the To the Point Cover Plate and stamps from the Fearless Pursuit Stamps Set. I used some Life-Changing Brushes to create an ink blended background with Aquatini, Lime Rickey, Limoncello, Tiara and Tutti Frutti. I cut out the blended background using the To the Point Cover Plate die and adhered it to a White A2 card base. 

I stamped the palm trees and the sentiment out on some White cardstock with Midnight Ink and cut them out with my Scan N Cut. I used some nesting circle dies to create two rings out of White card stock and an acetate window pane. I adhered the acetate to the back of one of the rings. Then I used some double-sided foam tape to pop up the window on the second ring. I poured a sequin mix I had in my stash into the center of the card and adhered the window over the top of the sequins. Then I adhered the palm trees and sentiment over the top of the window to finish off the card.

  • Inks used: Midnight,  Aquatini, Lime Rickey, Limoncello, Tiara and Tutti Frutti

  • Paper: White

  • Die: To the Point Cover Plate

  • Other: Sequin Mix, Foam Tape, Acetate

For my second card, I used some watercolor paper and watercolors to make a violet, blue and green background.  I wet the middle of the panel with water and dropped and dried several layers of watercolor onto the cardstock until I was pleased with the result. Then I stamped the Fearless Pursuit sentiment in the middle with Midnight Ink and embossed it with some clear embossing powder.  I adhered the panel onto an A2 sized card base with some strong, double-sided tape.
