Catherine Pooler Zen Garden Release - Coverplate & Faithful Flutterings

by - February 16, 2018


Hello everyone! Thank you so much for coming back for day 4 of the Zen Garden release blog hop! Today I have my two favorite products from the release to show you and I'm actually giddy. Ready? LETS GO!


Let's start with the most beautiful stamp set, probably ever. The Faithful Flutterings set includes a large butterfly and a smaller butterfly with three layers each that give depth, shadows, and highlights. For the above card I used the larger butterfly and decided to emboss a glitter embossing powder as the smallest layer which would normally serve as the deepest shadow. Since it's a rather simple card, I like the way it adds sparkle while being a piece of the butterfly and not a separate added element. 

This set also includes beautiful sentiments and a wonderfully inspiring quote. 


Enter to win your own set of Zen Garden inks (or a $45 gift card if you've already bought them)! Follow along with the blog hop each day and comment on each blog as an entry. Two people will be chosen EACH DAY! Today is day 4. Last chance! Good luck!



Last, but certainly not least from me is the incredible Stained Glass cover plate die. This is another product that can be used in so many ways. Here, I used it in a colorful rainbow pattern and combined it with the Create word die and sentiments included in the Eat Sleep Create stamp set. Finally, I put it all against the darker gray card stock from the Smoke and Mirrors card stock to really make it pop.

I hope you've gained ALL the inspiration you need to create with the new release. I am SO very excited to see what you create! Keep hopping along here!
