3-Ways To Use Catherine Pooler Inks With A Stencil

Hey peeps.  Thanks for all the comments last week on my Catherine Pooler post for her blog hop.  As I mentioned on those post I am in LOVE with her ink collections. So today I'm going to share a tutorial on 3 ways to use Catherine Pooler inks with a stencil.  It's super easy to get more use out of inks.  Also you can get a great mix of hues out of one ink pad.

Here are three cards made with the something borrowed ink pad.  Stretch those ink colors by mixing the ink directly into different mediums. I used the Folk Dance stencil and the Yay stamp set for my from Simon Says Stamp for this technique.  I also used the Catherine Pooler Tiara ink to stamp out the sentiment and to ink up a piece of bristol paper to add a nice contrasting strip of paper on my card panel.

For the first card I stenciled on the ink like I normally would.  


For this card I mixed the ink with whipped spackle.



For this card I mixed the ink in with translucent embossing paste.  


Here's a quick tutorial.  You can watch it here or over at my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.  I've used affiliate links for your convenience at no cost to you.

Catherine Pooler Zen Garden Blog Hop - Day

Hey peeps.  Happy Friday.  It's the last day of the blog hop for the Zen Garden release over at Catherine Pooler Designs.  What a release this has been.  I loved seeing all the cards the design team has made and all the new products that have been released.  Let me share with you a few more projects using the new release.

My first two cards I'm using the Chevron Split stencil and the newly released inks that I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!  The feathers and sentiments are from the Zen Feather stamp set.




This card I'm using the Stained Glass Cover Plate.  Isn't this cover plate gorgeous?  I lighted embossed it into my card panel and then cut out another piece in white to pop it up in the center of my card.

Alcohol Ink Background Tutorial

Hey peeps it's FRIDAY!!!  So happy the weekend is here and I get to spend it with my crafting squirrels at the Stampfest here in Florida tomorrow.  A day full of shopping and friendship.  I really need a day like this after the week I've had.

To boost my spirits I went into my craft room and just played.  I didn't put any stress on myself and I pulled out my alcohol inks and to make something pretty.  I've aways loved playing with alcohol inks on yupo paper so I thought I would share a video with you today. To sparkle things up, I pulled out some beautiful shimmer embossing paste and this gorgeous star medallion stencil from Simon Says Stamp. Keeping a simple sentiment on the card really let my background be the star.
