Hey there, Stampers!
Welcome to my blog!
I'm excited to share today's cards with you as part of a collaboration between Catherine Pooler Designs and WOW.
If you're not familiar with either the Catherine Pooler Designs products or the WOW products, you can head here to check out Catherine's shop and here to check out the WOW shop.
Today's cards feature a previously released Stamp of Approval collection from Catherine Pooler and some fantastic embossing powders from WOW.
I thought it would be fun to create a notecard set for today's project, so I trimmed down some white cardstock pieces to be a little smaller than a 4-bar size.
I stamped the images from The World Awaits set in Versamark ink on to my cardstock, and then used various colors of WOW Embossing powder. I heat set the images until the powder melted and then set them aside to let them cool.
To give some fun interest to the notecards, I used the Postage Stamp Dies to cut out my cardstock panels. I then cut a few standard 4-bar size cardstock mattes, and used an ink blending tool to apply various Catherine Pooler inks to the edges. I chose inks that coordinated with my embossing powders, and check out the match?!?! Couldn't have planned it any better!
I used a gray copic marker to outline and blend out the edges of my embossed images to make them pop off the card a little more. This is a great trick to have in your arsenal if you feel like your card is falling a little flat. Adding a cast shadow with your copics can step up the entire card quite a bit.
I then used the same inks and stamped a sentiment from the same set on to a cardstock strip and cut a "v" shape into the end, creating a banner. I popped that sentiment banner up with foam tape and adhered it down to my card. For the bright yellow card, I used a blank ink because I knew the yellow would be just a bit too bright with everything else going on in that card!
I glued the embossed card panels on to my larger ink blended panel, and then glued that whole assembly on to a cut and scored 4-bar note card.
