Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today for all the excitement for the Zen Garden Release! I tell ya, every Catherine Pooler Designs release gets better and better!
I've been having SO MUCH FUN playing with the products in this release, and I'm just tickled pink to share my creations with you!
Be sure to head here to find and purchase any of the products from the new release.
The first card I'll be sharing is from the Chevron Cheer stamp set.
Are you ready for another card?! This one uses one of the word dies from the new release. Are you swooning over this font yet?! I mean....SERIOUSLY!! It's the perfect size to carry a horizontal card. And now you're gonna want to buckle your seatbelt cause it's TIME FOR THE INKS.
So in case you didn't notice, this card doesn't take a master's degree to put together. That's why I love bold and beautiful word die cuts like this one, because it takes the work out of designing an eye catching card.
Now, it's time for a deep breath.
Cause, I'm venturing into cross stitch territory, and lemme just tell you--THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. So grab your coffee and possibly your tranquilizers so you can stay calm if you attempt to combine cross stitch with this stamp set.
So I stamped the same Chevron Cheer set on to my CPD cardstock, and then I spent a RIDICULOUS amount of time poking holes into my cardstock to create the cross stitch holes. Drop the dumbbells, cause you won't need any arm workout for the rest of the week if you do this. After you poke the holes, you'll want to just choose some thread color that you like and stitch away!
Stamp the sentiment in black ink and then slap some foam tape on the back of your cross stitched panel before placing it on your cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base. I added some coordinating washing tape to the sides just to help the cross stitched panel jump off the card base a bit.
All right, people. For those of you who are just in it to win it, let's get on to the details of the blog hop!
