I am thrilled to be a part of the Catherine Pooler and Colorado Craft Company Fall Blog Hop! The stamps from Colorado Craft Company are amazing as usual and I finally got to use Catherine Pooler inks that I’ve heard so much about!

Be sure to read all the way to the bottom for links to the other participants and a giveaway when you comment!

I love The Wizard of Oz. It’s always been one of my favorite movies so I was very excited when I saw the Big and Bold Ruby Slippers stamp set. I knew exactly what I wanted to create!

Making the easel card is pretty simple. Using an A2 top fold card base, score and fold the front in half at 2 3/4”. Adhere 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” brick stenciled Hero Arts Canary cardstock to the inside of the card base.

Adhere 2 3/4” x 4 1/2” stenciled cardstock and cityscape die cut to bottom of 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” Hero Arts Arctic cardstock. This piece gets adhered to bottom of front fold of card base only.

Stamp the shoes from the Big and Bold Ruby Slippers stamp set with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink. Mask off the socks and legs and blend on Peppermint Scrub ink from Mini Bundles Paradise Found Spa set, applying heavier amounts in shadows. Add detail with red Copic Markers.

Fussy cut the image with small, sharp scissors. Stamp, cut and color two more bows and adhere with foam tape. Color the legs and socks. Add Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to shoes. Add shoes to card front.

Stamp and heat emboss sentiments. Add an extra layer of cardstock to one of the sentiments and adhere inside card base. This will hold the easel card open for display. Adhere remaining sentiments.

The second stamp set is the Lovely Legs Autumn Season Girl and it is fabulous! Fall is my favorite season.

Stamp the image with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink and color using all the inks in the Mini Bundles Paradise Found Spa set with a watercolor brush using ink and a small amount of water. Mat on Hero Arts Pitch Black cardstock and place on an A2 card base cut from Hero Arts Adriatic cardstock.

Die cut the Just Thanks die from Hero Arts Plum and Pumpkin cardstocks and adhere together but slightly offset. Add Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to the die cuts and the leaves. Add a few Catherine Pooler Mystic Sequins.

I really enjoyed making these two cards. The Catherine Pooler mini inks are a great size. I hope to add more to my new collection soon.
