Catherine Pooler + WOW! Embossing Powder Blog Hop



Hi there crafty friends,

Welcome to a very special Blog Hop collaboration with WOW! Embossing Powder and Catherine Pooler Designs. You should have arrived here from the wonderful Tracie Pond's blog!

I am so excited to be joining all the talented design team members on both teams to bring you a fun blog hop full of love, hope and travel! We will be using Catherine's "Love Is in the Air" Stamp of Approval Kit. And most importantly Catherine Pooler's new ink collection!

You are in for a treat I promise! The most fun part of a blog hop is meeting, sharing and inspiring one another in this beautiful crafting community.

I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration along the way too!

Without further ado, here are the cards I've made!

For these two I mostly used the Love is in the Air die set. I love working with patterned paper and dies! The paper collection I picked for these cards is an old Basic Grey one, Tea Garden.


For this card I die cut a bunch of hot air balloons from various patterned papers, then glued them down on the A2 size top folding card base. I added pop dots behind a few of them because I love dimension. I also popped up the baskets. I embossed my sentiment, XOXO, with black regular WOW embossing powder. I also fussy cut a few flowers from one of the patterned papers and decorated some of the balloons with those.




For my next card I die cut 3 balloons from white card stock and stamped/embossed my sentiment on these. Again, I used WOW regular black embossing powder. Then I die cut a whole lot of teeny banner pieces from a variety of patterned papers and created some banners in the background. I also added some twine to them to make them look even more like banners.


I added foam adhesive behind the balloons and glued them on top of the banners.


My last card I mostly stamped, using the Love is in the Air stamp set. First I stamped the balloon on the background, then I filled the empty spots with smaller images. The bigger hearts I embossed with Mulberry Mist embossing glitter.


The Catherine Pooler inks are pretty amazing! The images are so crisp! Totally in love! Here I only used one of them though, Black Jack (the darker one on my card). I'm sure I'll be using the bright colors I received in the future!


Now for the fun part! What would be a blog hop without prizes, am I right?
  • WOW is giving away 6 powders of your choosing and a carry bag that you can store them in!
  • Catherine Pooler is giving away her new ink pads (8Pcs, Full of Life Party collection)
The only thing you need to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment on each participating member's blog hop post. The winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on ALL post, by EST Sunday July 1 and will be announced on the blog week of July 2. Good luck! X
