CPD and Pear Blossom Press colab....!!


Welcome to the Catherine Pooler Designs x Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop! 

We're sharing fun, interactive cards that will really brighten your day. They feature awesome new stamps and dies from Catherine Pooler Designs, and with help from Pear Blossom Press, they all really light up!  Be sure to hop along with us for loads of inspiration; our designers have come up with some brilliant cards...



Oh my gosh I has so much fun combining these two awesome companies...

I hadn't tried the PBP lights before so I was so excited to play with them and see how easy they were to use!!



I created a couple of cards for the hop, I hope you enjoy and get inspiration from them...

This first card I created by starting with a base of yellow cardstock and stamping half of it with the CPD background stamp "Laundered linen" and some Twilight ink!!


I die cut a circle and added a frame to create a shaker window and filled it with some CPD "Williamsburg sequins"...

I stamped and die cut some images from the "Bright days" stamp set and added them to the base with foam tape!


I completed the card by adding a sentiment and a touch of sequins...

Well the card wasn't totally complete...
Now the the design base of the card is finished it's time for the PBP light component!!

This picture below shows exactly how I placed the "PBP Halo light" and added foam tape around it... 

The light I taped in place with some double sided adhesive in a position that would line up with my shaker portion of the card...


I just couldn't believe how easy these lights were to use... 
I guess that's why they are called EZ lights hehe!!

There is no mucking around with circuits just pop it in the right place for where you want your light to be and your good to go!!


This second card was a simple CAS design which I made so that when you press the ON part of the light switch it's the way you turn on your "EZ- PBP light"....


I stamped all the images directly onto the card base and added a little colour with some Spectrum noir tri-blend markers...

I then used a pokey tool to add three little holes into the light globe as these were going to be my positions for the PBP light!!

I added my EZ light onto the back of the card base and then lined up each little wire with light in to each of the little holes and taped them in place...
(So sorry I missed a photo of the back so you could see the light on this one oopsies)


How cool is it when they light up??!! ....SO much fun!!

    I love the beautiful cards you created. I never thought of only partially stamping a card base with a background stamp. I've just always covered the whole background. Thanks for the chance to win a gc.

  48. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (ultimatelifeclinic. com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
