Catherine Pooler and Colorado Crafts Company Blog Hop

 


Hi ya everyone and welcome to the Catherine Pooler and Colorado Craft Company blog hop!  We are so excited to have everyone join us for this event and hope you will hit up each blog for inspiration.  There will be two $30 gift certificates, one from Colorado Craft Company and one from Catherine Pooler Designs.  
Make sure to comment on each blog as one random comment winner will be chosen to win a $30 gift certificate.

Today I've created two cards for you using Catherine Pooler Inks for a watercolor look.  For the first card I've used the beautiful Lovely Legs Autumn Season stamp set and used the Catherine Pooler Paradise Found ink colors to watercolor the entire scene.  I've also paired it with the beautiful Fall Pick-n-Mix paper pack and the Just Thanks sentiment Die.  


I also added some beautiful embellishment with the fancy Mystic Sequins from Catherine Pooler.  I used Acquarelle watercolor paper.


For the next card I created a fun Wizard of Oz inspired creation using the new stamp set from Colorado Crafty Company called Ruby Slippers which is part of their BIG and BOLD collection.  The sentiments in this stamp set are just fabulous and it was so fun to watercolor those shoes!


Again, I used Catherine Pooler inks to watercolor the entire scene.  To finish this card off, I added Wanderlust sparkle to the shoes for a very sparkly slipper.  I also added Catherine Pooler sequins in Crater Lake and Aspen to the want tip to look like Glenda's beautiful wand.  


Now, make sure to head to everyone's blog to say hello!  You will be blown away by the gorgeous creations from everyone.  Amber is up next on the blog list below:

Melissa - You are here!

  4. Fall is my favorite season and this Autumn girl stamp is so wonderful. Love your color choices and that paper pack looks pretty interesting too. Nicely done! p.s. who didn't want ruby slippers as a kid?

  5. I quite like the way you offset your first card on the card base Melissa. I think CP had a wonderful idea making her designer papers match her ink colours. The sparkle on the Ruby Red shoes is super & I like the use of sequins on the wand too. CCC Lovely Legs collection has always been a favourite of mine.
