Hello, hello, HELLO!
I'm super excited to be posting today as I am hosting a collaboration blog hop with the Catherine Pooler Creative Team! Today, myself along with a ton of CP designers are sharing projects featuring Right at Home stamps and Catherine Pooler Designs Premium Dye Inks which are now available in the Right at Home shop!
I can not wait to see what everyone created, but before I hop along myself let me show you what I created!
Let's get started...
I started off by stamping the smallest butterfly from my Fluttering By stamp set in different shades of blue from Catherine's ink collection. I used Black Jack for the body, Mint to Be for the base of the wings, and Aquatini over top to add some life to the butterfly. I also added a detail layer to the body of the butterfly with a crisp black ink like Midnight.
Next came a ton of floral and leaf stamping with images from my Freshly Picked stamp set. For all the leaves, stems, etc. I used Green Tea (my favoritest green shade ever) and Eucalyptus for those images that had a second layer. The single floral image used Sauna, the berries used both It's a Girl and Polished, the largest flower used Polished and Sauna, and the teeny tiny purple flower used Sweet Sixteen, Pixie Dust, and Flirty Fuchsia.
For the banner I decided to bring in some more shades of yellow so I grabbed Shea Butter for the base and tail ends (double stamped) and Sauna, again, for the shadow. Over top I stamped a greeting from my Thanks a Bunch set and curved it to match the curve of the banner.
I wanted to create a base for all my stamped images so I pulled out the wreath die from my Seasonal Wreath Die Set and die-cut from some cardstock that I had inked with Green Tea ink. I did a direct ink pad to paper technique to really transfer the color. I also die-cut two additional wreaths from white cardstock to layer underneath so it would pop off the card.
I assembled all of my elements onto a piece of textured white cardstock that I die-cut with a stitched rectangle die from my Find the Beauty Die Set. I used both liquid glue and foam tape to adhere everything. Once I had finally achieved an arrangement I liked, I glued the panel onto a yellow cardbase and my card was finished!
