Catherine Pooler Designs and Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop

 Hello Crafters! Thanks again for stopping by my blog. Today's the day - it's the Catherine Pooler Designs & 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.


Every good hop has prizes, right? So Catherine Pooler Designs, and Pear Blossom Press are each giving away a $25 store credit! Comment on this post by June 25, 202 to be entered to win. Winners will be announced on June 28th. 

 Now to my card! Supplies used:
Catherine Pooler Inks: Serenade, Aquatini, Fiesta Blue
Catherine Pooler Stamp & die sets: Bright Days
Watercolor paper, white cardstock & cardbase. 
 
I wanted to really make the most of my Pear Blossom Press EZ-lights. I knew I had to make the globes light up and I also HAD to use the new PBP Halo light set - so came up with the design below. I just had to feature the colors of my Catherine Pooler Ink Pads - I have Serenade, Aquatini and Fiesta Blue (some of my all time favorite colors). The Bright Days Stamp set is totally awesome to play with - endless bright ideas!

You will want to check out my Youtube Instructional Video for a details & tutorial on how I constructed this card and made the two light kits work together.


If you love the idea of interactive light up cards and love a super easy process - then you absolutely NEED the EZlights from Pear Blossom Press - they are a total breeze to use and you can create amazing cards with very little fuss!
The Catherine Pooler inks are so vibrant - the range of colors is extensive and the pads themselves are so luscious and juicy! They are perfect for stamping, shading and water colouring (as I have done on my card - the very technical 'smooching'). The bright Days stamp and die sets has a lovely range of globes and some heartfelt sentiments making it unique and suitable for a huge range of cards (it's even suitable for male cards too which is a rarity in stamp sets!).

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my card. Next stop after me is

Great card! The abstract spattered background helps my focus move from light to light, adding to the interactive feeling.

Loved the video, it really shows how pretty this card is! I never thought of drying between schmooshes and that solves a lot! I love the three colors too. Mixing halo with EZ light 3ons is a beautiful effect under and over the pop up. Terrific card!
