Catherine Pooler "Adoring You" Stamp of Approval Box Available Now!

January 9, 2019

Hi crafty friends! I'm coming up for air for a moment, just to let you know that the "Adoring You" SOA Box is available for purchase now!

Here is another card I created using some items from this beautiful selection of stamps & dies. For this card I've used the Love Note background stamp, and The Key stamp set.

 To start this card, I heat embossed the Love Note background in gold to a white cardstock block. Then I applied a water wash to it, and used Catherine Pooler inks in It's A Girl, Be Mine & Party Dress to watercolor it. I use a heat tool to mostly dry it, then spritzed it down with gold shimmer spray.

 I set that aside to fully dry, then stamped & heat embossed the sentiment in white and the lock & keys in gold to vellum. I trimmed the sentiment into a strip, then cut a banner edge to the left side of the sentiment. Then I fussy cut the lock & keys, as I didn't get the coordinating dies for this set. You can get the dies as an add-on if you would rather not fussy cut.

At this point it was time to put the card together. I wrapped the sentiment around the upper right side of the background, then mounted it to a white A2 card base with foam adhesive. I adhered the lock to the right of the sentiement, then tied a double bow from ivory burlap twine. I layered it to the top of of the key, and accented with a gold enamel heart from my craft stash. Then I poked holes in the tops of the keys, threaded them with gold string and wrapped around the heart accent. Finally, I finished by adding a scattering of sequins here & there.

I hope that you liked my projects using this Stamp of Approval box! I've got one more project in the works that I will share with you once it's finished! That is all I have for you today, but I did want to invite you to hang out with me on my social media channels if you don't already.

I would love to be crafty friends! Have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday!
