Plain AWESOME....!!

Hey my crafty friends....

The Catherine Pooler Creative team has been having lots of fun this past week using coverplates over at StampNation so I thought I'd create a card and a video to share with you all...

I think we need lots of crafty videos and inspiration to keep us inspired and busy at this current time!!

You can watch all the steps of how I created this card on my youtube channel but I'll explain here also how I created the card too...


I started off with a base of Uniquely creative watercolour cardstock which I then inked with CP inks in the colours Orange Peel, Grass Skirt, Party Dress and Something Borrowed....

Gave it a good spray of water and then dried it off with my WOW! dual heat gun. 
Using the ink pads I smooshed some ink onto my Glass media mat and sprayed that also with water, then using an acrylic stamp block I picked up some of the ink and smooshed it onto the inked background to create extra layers of colour!

Using the Starry Night coverplate from Catherine I die cut that from the inked panel and popped out all the little stars....
(Perfect to use later on a shaker card or for little embellishments)


Using Copic markers I coloured up a heap of the little rainbows and a couple of the skates from the "Let the good times roll" stamp set from Catherine's latest release Forever 13....
(You can find the Copic combos I used for colouring on my previous Catherine Pooler blog post)

The sentiment is from the "Magnetic messages" stamp set and I heat embossed it with WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder on some black cardstock!!

All the images were added to the card base with foam tape and then finished off the card with Catherine Pooler "Crater Lake" sequins which I attached with a couple of various sizes of glue dots....


I hope you enjoy the video and feel inspired to get crafty with your coverplate dies...

For lots more coverplate fun I recommend checking out StampNation, it's a fantastic crafty community to be a part of...full of friends, fun and of course crafty inspiration!!

Happy crafting everyone, Hugz Ashlee
