Catherine Pooler Foundations Box Blog Hop!

Hi!
Welcome to the Foundations Box Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Allison Cope's blog! I am so excited and honored to be a part of this incredible release!

What is a Foundations Box? I am so glad you asked! ;)

The Foundations Box includes 3 stamp sets (Spot On, For Everything, and Amazing Floral), 5 ink pads (Midnight, Orange Twist, Rockin Red, Fiesta Blue and and Grass Skirt), a clear block and a pack of Catherine Pooler Designs Cardstock! The box will sell for $67 and includes everything a brand new stamper needs to sit down and make a card right away. No other supplies necessary!

The products in this box are also staple products for EVERY stampers’ craft room.
I've created a video, sharing how to create these two cards using ONLY supplies in the box!







These final four cards I created, too using supplies in the Foundations Box, but I also used a few extra and inexpensive supplies.  I used ink to color in plain twine for this card:


I used two ink colors and blended them together, right on the stamp, to create both the above card and the card below:



I stamped directly onto an acrylic block and added some water.  Then, using a paintbrush, I flicked the color onto the card to created a splattered background.  No need for any fancy-schmany spray mists or bottles!


For my final card, I simply stamped the tree onto a scrap piece of pre-scored cardstock and trimmed it out.  I stamped the sentiment onto the card base and on the image, then just lined it up as I adhered the tree to the card.





These inks seriously stamp like a dream.  I'm not even kidding.  They are fantastic!

Ready to win? The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have to win! We will have three days of hopping, with the Foundations Box available for purchase November 16.  Next up on the hop is Heather North.  

Good luck and happy hopping!
