{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring Catherine Pooler Designs + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Kalyn and I are back with our video series, Two Many Cards. If you missed our other videos in this series, check out the original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 

Today, we're featuring the Amber's World Bundle (Amber's World stamps and Amber's World dies are 50% off as this video goes live) and Life of the Party Minis from Catherine Pooler Designs. I have a weakness for globes, atlases and maps so this set was love at first sight. I love the florals on the globe and the floral additions for layering and creating bouquets, laurels and other ways to frame the beautiful sentiments.

If you're not familiar with Catherine Pooler inks, you need to discover them! They're so amazing for stamping, heat embossing, watercolouring and so much more! Visit this link to learn all about them. I guarantee you'll be addicted. ;)

I smooshed the Life of the Party Minis on a craft sheet, then used a wet brush to colour all of the images, which were stamped with Midnight Ink and heat embossed with sparkle embossing powder.

I created a textured base for the first card by dry embossing with the Mod Squared Stencil (also discounted as this video goes live). If you've never tried this technique with a stencil, I urge you to give it a try! It adds versatility to all of your stencils and is so much fun.

For my second card, I used the Plaid Background Stamp to create patterned paper that coordinates with the colours on the globe. I also used the hill die from the Winterhaven Dies to cut the curves for those pieces which serves as an anchor or table for the globe to sit on.

I tied some metallic silver string to the globe and popped on both pieces with foam tape. The elements on this card have a lot of curves so I used a corner chomper to round three of the four corners on the card base.


Catherine Pooler Designs is giving away the Amber's World Bundle (Amber's World stamps and Amber's World dies are 50% off as this video goes live) and Life of the Party MinisOne lucky winner will be chosen randomly from my video or Kalyn’s video. You must be a subscriber to both our channels!

Today I learned that you can heat emboss CP inks! :D I've been using Versamark with them so far. Good to know! Two terrific cards - I love the funky base the globe sits on for the second card!
