CP Designs Freshly Picked New Release!

New products have arrived at Catherine Pooler Designs...new stamps, dies, stencils and ink.  WOOT!  

Today I'm sharing two cards using the newly released product.  First up, the I Pick You stamps and dies.

I Pick You is right on trend.  Have you noticed fruit popping up on everything from home decor to clothing?  I'm pretty smitten with pineapples right now and who can resist a pineapple dipped in gold?!!!  I used the Circle Dies to create a faux shaker and stamped the stitches from the new "Best of You stamp set.  

I kind of love how this turned out, so much detail but so much white space at the same time.  That's a CAS win-win :)

My next card features the Best of You stamp set, as well as the Checkerboard Stencil and new Black Jack ink.

This was a fun one to make.  I started by double stenciling the Checkerboard Stencil.  To do this sponge over card stock with one color, then pick up your stencil and then reposition it so you are covering all of the spaces you've already sponged, then sponge again in another color.  It sounds way more difficult than it is.  Give it a try I promise it's easy!   This might be my new favorite color combo...Tiara, Tiki Torch, Garden Party, Lime Rickey, Aquatini and Black Jack, the newest in the CP ink line.  Black Jack is a dark gray, an absolutely perfect neutral to add to your collection.  The rest of the card came together pretty quickly and easily.  I really wanted the Best of You sentiment to shine so I popped that up on a white panel and added a simple floral cluster from the same stamp set.

Head on over to Catherine Pooler Designs to see all of the amazing new products!!!  Happy shopping!
