Catherine Pooler: All That Jazz Blog Hop

Howdy all!  Happy Sunday one and all! Welcome to Day 1 of the Catherine Pooler DesignsAll That Jazz” Blog Hop! If you have happened upon the blog hop today, please start at Catherine’s first blog post here.

Today I’m sharing a few cards that I made with some of the brand goodies being released on Tuesday March 20th.  If you are a StampNation member, you will be able to shop on Monday March 19th... woohoo! 

So come and check of some of this new release with me today.

I made the first two cards thinking that I could use part of one to make the other.  It works out brilliantly that way!


I began making my first card by stamping the arrays of different blooms from the “Grateful Heart” stamp set in Black Jack ink on CP’s Premium White Cardstock. I created some masks for each spray using Stamping Mask Paper by Inkadinkado. Then I took my All That Jazz ink and lightly sponged it around my blooms.

I had a ball coloring in my flowers using Copic Markers and then I added some stamped mini flowers in All That Jazz and Peppermint Scrub ink.

Then I die cut the new “Wonderful Die” word right across the whole panel and saved it for my second card.  I added a white embossed “You Are” also from the “Grateful Heart” stamp set using Versamark ink.  I die cut Vellum using the “Tags, Etc. Die” and added it to stamped and sponged All That Jazz back ground.

And here’s my second card using the die cut Wonderful from the first panel.
This card also features the new “Music Notes Background” stamp. I also used the word “Friend” from the “Everyday Mod” stamp set.

For my final card I just had to feature some kind of rainbow so I inked up a piece of CP’s Premium White Cardstock using Shea Butter, Polished, Rose Petals, Sugared Lavender, Stone Blue and Seafoam ink and die cut the Wonderful using the “Wonderful Die”.  I pulled the die cut from its back ground and set it aside.
Next I took a piece of white cardstock and die cut the word again. I pulled it from its back ground and then stamped a variety of cool greenery from the “Grateful Heart” stamp set using Black Jack ink.  I then took the same 6 inks from the wonderful die and added tiny same colored flowers in and among the flowers. I then added the rainbow die cut back in.  The added "You" stamp is from the "Bloomin' Bouquet" stamp set.


Now…. take a look at these amazing creations today made some amazingly talented designers...

All are wonderful and well balanced in design. I think my favorite (because it's so clever) is the colorful sentiment as the bouquet highlighted with leaves! There are a lot of subtle details in your designs that add to the effect without competing for attention! Very nicely done. Thank you.

Allison your cards are gorgeous! The first two are so pretty with the bouquet you created and then using the positive "wonderful" to create a second card is brilliant! thanks for sharing your creativity!

StampinLouie said...

Your cards are so pretty and colorful. Thanks for sharing.

Annalisa Young said...

What a great way to get a two-for-one on your cards. I really need to try that more often! And I love how colorful you went. Many people in today's hop when monochrome with the black and white (which I also think is lovely), but it's nice to see it all colored out too! I particularly love the one with the music background. I could live in a blue musical place like that. :) Thanks for sharing with us!

Bamabell said...

Gorgeous cards! Love the color!

Anne Henderson said...

Monica Eggleton said...

I like the many layers of the card with the music stamp background. Using a band with the word cut out was a sweet twist to use as well. It is nice to see so many ways to utilize the same materials.

Kelsey Thomas said...
