Miss You feat. Catherine Pooler

Hello, crafty friends! If you've read my last three posts, you can probably guess what prompted the creation of this card. I miss my parents and I miss Lindsey but this card is for all of you who are missing someone in your lives for one reason or other. I've accumulated a lot of craft supplies over the last few months that needed some love so I decided to start with Catherine Pooler's Just Add Water.

Just Add Water and its coordinating dies were part of the April 2023 Club Sursee but are now available for purchase individually. I've always felt that Catherine Pooler's Club Sursee offered their best stamp sets. It's hard not to love this stamp set because it has a bit of everything, especially when you combine these images with the sentiments from Happy Thoughts, the other set from that month's Club Sursee.

I stamped the roses with Rockin' Red and the centres with S'mores. The foliage and sentiment strip were stamped with Deck the Halls and the watering can was stamped with Slate, one of the new greys that I finally got a chance to use! To create the life-like ombre effect on the bird, I used Buttercream, Spiced and S'mores with a sponge dauber to blur the lines between colours.

I cut the Chalkboard Frames twice and stacked them for a bit of dimension. The frames I used have been retired but you can partially die cut the Winter Frames to create a similar effect. After the sentiment was white heat embossed and trimmed, all of the elements were arranged, then popped up with foam squares. A few silver enamel dots finish the card nicely.
