Catherine Pooler | It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Catherine Pooler will be creating live on Monday, November 22nd with a trending holiday colour combo which has been posted in the StampNation Facebook Group so you can join in on the fun and create ahead of time!

The ink colours featured are Rockin' Red, Do-Si-Do, Garden Party, Deck the Halls and Sweet Sixteen. I've never used this combo and stamped a ton of different images from several sets before finding the right combination for this card. Believe it or not, I started with food on a tag! 

This big sentiment from Wonderful Time of the Year is one of my favourite holiday stamps of all-time! I love how it takes centre stage and doesn't really need much else to make an impact.

All of the stamped flowers and foliage use the Let's Go Skating stamp set and coordinating dies. The heat embossed leaves on vellum are from the retiring Love Grows Here stamp set and coordinating dies. This much-loved set is on sale so grab it while you still can!

After arranging the images, I used a combination of liquid glue, glue dots and foam tape to attach the die cut images to the card. I also added seed beads to the centres of the poinsettia and tiny heart sequins from the Romance Sequin Mix.

Here's a visual of the colour combo! I hope you'll play along and share your project in the StampNation gallery or on social media. Be sure to tag @catherinepooler and use the hashtags #catherinepoolerdesigns #catherinepoolerinks and #cpcolorcombo so we can stop by and leave some love!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
