Heffy Doodle Catherine Pooler Collaboration Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Catherine Pooler Designs Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some inspiration with the new Heffy Doodle and Catherine Pooler releases, and there is a prize up for grabs, too!

I had such a fun time playing with the new releases! The Catherine Pooler inks are so juicy and amazing! I had to make more than just one card!

Card 1

For the first card, I’m starting with these beautiful colors of Catherine Pooler inks: Mardi Gras, Aquatini, Mint To Be, Tutti Frutti, and Coral Cabana. The flowers are from the So Happy stamp set.

I am using one of the dies from the Fancy Nancy Frames set to create a cutout in the center of the top of my card front.

I’m using the Happy X Three dies to cut out a black inline and a white outline for my sentiment.

On a piece of Heffy Doodle Cherry on Top cardstock that I cut down to A2 size, I am placing my Fancy Foliage stencil and blending the pattern using Candied Apple and Fired Brick distress ink/oxide.

Now, I’m ready to stamp my Quill You Be Mine images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This ink works well with Copic markers, which I will use to color in my stamped images.
Body: E41, E42, E43, R21, white Gelly Roll pen
Quills: E44, E43, and E42
Balloons (on 2nd attempt!): G0000, G00, and G02

After using the coordinating dies to cut my images out, I’m ready to start putting my card together. I’m using foam tape and squares to create a 3D layers.

I’m stamping my sentiment on black cardstock using Versamark Watermark ink. I’m adding white detail embossing powder and using my heat gun to emboss it. I am cutting down small strips of 1/8” foam tape and putting it on the back of my “happy” piece.

Now I’m ready to add my sentiments and it’s all done!

Card 2

For the next card, I’m going to make a slimline card, using the same Catherine Pooler inks and So Happy stamp set. I’m starting by laying out where I want things to be. I’m going to use some masking tape to cover the sentiment “HAPPY” because I’m going to stamp that in a different color. After stamping my sentiments, I’m using one of the Fancy Nancy frames to create some peek-a-boo cutouts. I’m using the Mint to Be ink pad to blend a background that will be peeking through my cutouts.

I’m stamping my bugs from the Big Bug Hugs and coloring them with Copic markers.

Now, I’m ready to adhere everything to the card using 3D foam adhesive!

Catherine Pooler and Heffy Doodle will be respectively giving away a $25 and a 25£ gift certificate to their stores! Make sure to comment on each post in the hop for your chance to win!
Winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Tuesday, February 25th on the Heffy Doodle and Catherine Pooler blogs.
