Catherine Pooler - Wild and Wonderful Release

by - May 23, 2018


Hello crafty people! I'm especially excited to have you here today to show off Catherine Pooler's gorgeous new release, Wild and Wonderful. I know I say that every time but this one is truly different because of the layered flower set you see above. It's simple to use and the results are so pretty. Each flower and leaf in the set also comes with a coordinating outline stamp which I find can really help complete the layered image. This is definitely up there for my favorites from this release but also my favorite sets to date. It's a must have especially if you're a lover of Catherine Pooler's inks. And let's be real here, who isn't? And speaking of inks....



TWO new ink colors are being released as a part of this release. Grape Crush and Limoncello are perfect additions to the CP ink family and were basically made for all the florals in this release. You are sure to instantly fall in love with these colors.


There are also two incredibly designed background stamps in this release. The one pictured above is called the BFF Background Stamp and it's a really gorgeous symmetrical diamond pattern that is perfect for coloring in or, as I used it here, embossing. I masked a large diamond in the center of the stamp before inking it up with Versamark ink so that it would appear as a frame around the center of my card front where I could put a sentiment. I can't wait to use this again and again. Depending on the color you emboss it or ink it up in, it would be great for a masculine card. I always have trouble making those!


Okay, lets get back to the florals in this release! There is yet another floral stamp set with coordinating dies that are perfect for wreath building in my opinion. The florals and leaves are small enough to build on top of each other to create a "wow" factor like my wreath card here. I decided to use greens and purples with pops of pink, blue and yellow because I thought it would really scream spring/summer.
