Catherine Pooler and Ellen Hutson IG Hop

Hey friends! Did you see that Catherine Pooler and Ellen Hutson kicked off an Instagram Hop together today!? You DO NOT want to miss out! They’re BOTH giving prizes away to 3 lucky winners! Woot!! Head to the IG Hop here.

I’m sharing TWO cards I made using this amazing Float Your Boat stamp set that Catherine Pooler’s team made exclusively for Ellen Hutson. Read on to see how I created these cards!

For my first card, I trimmed down my Parqs and Rec Cover Plate Die to change the sizes of the rectangles. (I love when dies can be used in different ways, don’t you?!).

On a piece of A2 White Premium Cardstock, I blended Something Borrowed, Oh Boy!, All that Jazz, Aquatini, and Minted inks. Then I spritzed my background with water and some paint droplets using a paint brush.

Next, I glued my frame down to my background and then stamped my sentiments using Midnight Ink. I used the White Premium Cardstock to stamp my images from the new Float Your Boat stamp set. I colored my images with Copic markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I used 3D foam squares to attach my stamped and cut images to the card front. I added some St. Cloud sequins at the end for a finishing touch!

For my second card, I used Heffy Memo Tape to mask off the bottom of the card front. I used Drive-In and Serenade for my background. Then, I used Black Jack on the bottom of the card for my “road”. I cut the background down using the Notecard Postage Dies. For this card, I stamped images from the Float Your Boat stamp set as well as the Special Delivery stamp set. I added some Sofia sequins to this card!

Those are my cards to share with you today for this really fun IG Hop. I hope you enjoy the Hop and GOOD LUCK!!! Remember, there will be 3 winners! Make sure to check the IG Hop for all the details.
