Creating Colour Schemes with Catherine Pooler Inks | The Little Paper Tree

undefined Hello Crafty People!

Today I’m taking part in a Team Tiny hop, this one is #TeamTinyInspirationHop and I’m in Day 1 of the 2 day mega hop!

I used the Geo Steps 3D Embossing Folder from Altenew on an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb, then popped up my strip on foam tape onto the background panel.

I finished the design really simply with some clear droplets which are from Little Things by Lucy’s Cards

Don’t forget to head on over to Youtube to watch the rest of the hop, I know there will be some beautiful projects waiting for you!

I created a full panel of stripes that I put behind a white cover die cut from Pinkfresh Studios; I love the way that the colour peeks through the white pattern. I finished this card with two sentiment strips and some black onyx glitter sequins.

The other panel I made was much smaller, and I cut it down with a heart die. (The die that I used is an old, unbranded die that I was given, so I have linked a couple of similar products that I found in my supplies list.)

For the background I used a debossing die by Altenew, but I ran it through in two passes, so that it gives the illusion of being a gatefold style card.

I wanted to keep the design simple, but also I wanted to be able to make several cards at a time and the easiest way to do this is using some sort of stamp positioner.

I used my MISTI and I positioned the sentiment first, using Happy Birthday Many Ways from CPD, and went ahead stamping each one; cleaning my stamp well between each colour.

Then I moved onto the little images, again choosing my positioning, & stamping each card in turn before repositioning the stamps and repeating the earlier steps.

I wanted to keep the cards very clean & simple, and single layered, but I felt that they needed something more so I grabbed an ink blending brush and some washi tape to mark off and colour a stripe down the side of each one.

Once dry, I adhered each panel onto an a2 card made from 110lb Neenah.
