Catherine Pooler Hello Sunshine Release Blog Hop

Catherine Pooler Hello Sunshine Release Blog Hop

Welcome to our celebration of the Hello Sunshine Release from Catherine Pooler Designs. We are blog hopping today. Daniel West here with a few cards to highlight the summertime fun of 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 Summer Fun Card with the ice cream truck image from the I Scream You Scream stamp set.  Thise comes together in a bundle called I Scream You Scream Bundle. I stamped out the truck onto some White cardstock with Midnight Ink and colored in my image with red-violet and yellow-orange Copic colors. I always start with my lightest color and give it a “wash” then I come in with darker colors to add depth and shading. After coloring it in, I cut it out with my Brother Scan-N-Cut.

I blended some Party Dress and Lemoncello Inks over a piece of White cardstock. Then, I die cut a stitched rectangle out of the ink blended panel. For the sentiment, I chose the Less Monday More Summer image from I Scream You Scream stamp set and heat embossed it in white on the top right of the rectangle. I made a stencil with the Right Angle cover plate die and use it to ink up the top portion of the stitched die cut with the Party Dress ink pad.

Then, I adhered the truck to the front of the rectangle. I popped it all up on an A2-sized card base and added some sequins from the Charleston Sequin Mix to finish it off.

Dies: The Right Angle Cover Die, Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate Die

Ink:  Lemoncello, Party Dress, Midnight

Paper: White

Accessories: Charleston Sequin Mix, Wow Unicorn Magic Embossing Powder, Foam Tape


For my next card, I used a the Right Angle Cover Plate for my background and an ice cream cone from the 3 Scoops stamp set as my focal point. 

I blended some Suede Shoes and All That Jazz ink over an A2 panel of White cardstock and die cut it with the Right Angle Cover Plate. I was careful to keep the negative pieces in tact and adhere them to another card base for the future. Then, I die cut a sheet of black fun foam to adhere underneath the ink blended die cut panel for dimension.

Then, I die cut the ice cream cone out of some White cardstock and stamped the images in an ombre blend over the top of the die cut. This helps me to center the image easily. To achieve the look of ombre, I inked up the ice cream scoop stamp with Sauna Ink, then tapped off some of the ink on one side with a Life Changing Blender Brush. I did the same with the cone and some Over Coffee Ink.  I wanted to add a bit more color to the scoops so I added some Tutti Frutti in the same ombre over the top. To finish my scoop, I added some sprinkles with Over Coffee Ink and a few shine lines with a white gel pen. I stamped out the cherry image with some Rockin Red Ink and die cut it out. 

For the sentiment, I embossed the All You Need Is Love And Ice Cream onto some White cardstock with white embossing powder. Then, with my Over Coffee ink pad, I colored the cardstock direct to paper. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered everything to the front of the ink  blended and die cut card panel with Nuvo glue. To finish off the card, I added some sequins from the Charleston Sequin Mix.
