Spread joy not germs blog hop....!!


Hey everyone and welcome to my stop on this 
AMAZING huge blog hop for #spreadjoynotgerms....

Seeing as this hop is SO large if you get lost you can always pop to "Catherine" or "Hedgehow hollows" blog posts to find your way again....

I have two cards to share with you for this hop and I hope you enjoy them both...

This first one I used the Josephs coat technique to create a fun card base!!



Here are the steps I used to create this card....

- Using some watercolour cardstock I coloured it with a mix of Pale orange, Pale pink and pale violet Karin brush marker pros
- Using WOW! clear gloss embossing powder I heat embossed the Ride the wave background stamp from CP
- Using some CP midnight ink I rubbed that over the entire embossed base piece 
- With a paper towel I removed the excess ink leaving a fun background design
- Using the same Karin markers I coloured a piece of white card and die cut using the beautiful word die (also a die cut base of white)
- Added some WOW! opaque bright white embossed sentiments from the Smile, beautiful sentiments set
- Finished it all of with some Catherine Pooler sequins!!


For my second card I have created a bright NEON coloured card to bring some happy to the receiver and what better background stamp to colour with neons than the super cool "At the rink" background from "Catherine Pooler designs"....!!


Here are the steps on how I created this card....

- I first embossed the at the rink background on some watercolour cardstock using WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder
- Once heat embossed I used the Karin NEON brush marker pros to colour the whole piece
- Using some pink neon card and some white card I die cut the Good vibes and layered them together before adhering to the background base using foam tape for added dimension
- Finished off the card with a touch of Catherine Pooler Crater lake sequins

Onto some more fun stuff...
