The Counting Blessings Collection Blog Hop!

Hi! Welcome to the Counting Blessings Blog Hop! We have a ton of inspiration in store today, so make sure to hop around and check it all out! You should have arrived here from Ardyth's blog!




This Collection is truly one of my favorites to date.  I just love anything having to do with Autumn and this collection screams Fall.  But.. one of the greatest things about this Collection is that even though everything is more Autumn themed, they can be used year round, too.  Plenty of the sentiments and images will work any time of the year.  Talk about awesomeness!

To get on the wait list for your Collection, click here!

My first card was created using the new Marching Leaves stencil.  I wanted to keep this card as Autumn-ish (is that a word?!) as possible.  I fussy cut the sentiment from the Autumn Blessings stamp set out once it was stamped.

Catherine Pooler Supplies used on this card: Marching Leaves Stencil, Autumn Blessings Stamp Set, Midnight Ink, Tiki Torch Ink, Tutti Frutti Ink, and Tiara Ink


I created this card with a Spring color palette in mind! The sentiments from the Good Things stamp set are becoming my go-to set for everything I create.

Catherine Pooler Supplies Used on this card: Bloomin; Bouquet Stamp Set, Good Things Stamp Set, Midnight, Party Dress, Garden Party, Flirty Fuchsia Inks


My final card pays homage to Autumn again.  I just couldn't help it.  If you take a closer look, you can see that the die cuts from the Fallen Leaves die are sparkly!

Catherine Pooler Designs Supplies used on this card: Autumn Blessings Stamp Set, Fallen Leaves Die, Tiki Torch, Orange Twist, Black Jack Inks
