Wild & Wonderful Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 3 of the Wild & Wonderful Collection Blog Hop!  If you have just happened upon my blog, you may want to start at the beginning.  Click here to start at the beginning.

This new collection is jam packed with stamps, coordinating dies and even 4 brand new ink colors!!  Woohoo!

I had a ball creating with all these amazing products.  And here a few of my creations…

Butterfly Tri-Fold
This card features the ornate Scroll Butterfly Die and the In Flight Butterfly Die.  It’s accentuated with the blooms from the A Note of Thanks stamp collection.

Purple & Mint Thanks
This multi-die card features the new Wonderful Wildflowers stamps and their coordinating dies, Wonderful Wildflowers Dies.  The back ground was made using the Mint To Be ink and the graphic new BFF Background stamp.

You Are Simply Bouquet
This sunny, cheerful card also features the Wonderful Wildflowers stamps & dies plus a mix of the Focus on the Good greenery & their coordinating dies. And did you notice those scrolls… yup… those are just the details of the Scroll Butterfly Die cut and scribbled on with a white gel pen!

Thank You Rainbow
And my final card today features ONLY the four new ink colors…. yup… I only used All That Jazz, Grape Crush, Be Mine and Limonchello inks!  If you were wanted to try Catherine Pooler Designs inks for the first time, I would highly recommend these four!!!  You can buy them all at once too: they’re called the Carnivale Ink Bundle.

Creative & Curious: Abundant Petals

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is the final day of our Power Poppy Creative & Curious Collection Sneak Peeks! Marcella and the whole Bloom Brigade have revealed sneaks of eleven different clear stamp sets.... wowsers!  So much eye candy!

One of today’s sneaks is called Abundant Petals.  It's a wonderful mix of different blooms and foliage to make all kinds of your own designs for bouquets.

I chose to colour up my image today using my Copic Markers and my Polychromos Pencils.  I had a blast using yellows, purples and blush pinks!

Here are all the Copic Markers I used to color in my blooms and greenery...

Now take a few minutes and check out my fellow Bloom Brigader blogs to see their fabulous creations.
Allison Cope - you are here!
