SWATCH IT LIKE IT'S HOT

written tutorial

quick easy masucline card

Die-cut a large tag using the Layered Tag die set. Next, use one of the rectangle colour swatch stamps from the Colour Swatch stamp set to stamp horizontally across the tag in Dress Blue

Alternate with another width of stamp and use Suede shoes to create a fun striped pattern along the tag. In addition, stamp a couple of stripes over the top in embossing ink and heat set with gold embossing powder

Softly ink blend Suede shoes, Fiesta Blue and Cummerbund inks onto a white card panel, trimming this down to add to a card front. After adding some black twine to the tag, foam mount this onto the front and add a sentiment from the Layered Birthday Cake stamp set

Lastly, embellish with a few colour coordinating sequins to finish the card off. 

Fun abstract background card

This card uses a lot of the different shaped colour swatch stamps from the Colour Swatch stamp set to create a fun abstract background to add a sentiment to. 

Here I choose to use a triad of colours from the Party Colour wheel and I used Uptown, Catching Rays and Flirty Fuschia, alternating the colours and overlapping the shapes. 

The panel was trimmed down before adding these to a white card base and then adhering a layered sentiment using the Hello Word die. Lastly, the card was finished with colour coordinating sequins. 

SWATCH IT LIKE IT'S HOT: Colour swatching ideas

Don’t forget the Ink Swatching bundle comes with a coordinating swatch tag die that allows you to stamp out all your s along with using the Spa Colour stamp and Party Colour stamp set, so you can easily see how to colour dries when stamped. My tip is to make sure you use the card you usually stamp on so you know what it looks like on the card you use. 

I also showed in the video above, how to use the Party Colour stamp set to create my own ink-swatching watercolour chart.  You can faux watercolour with the re-inkers and this is a great way to see how mixing different colours look. It is still a work in progress, as Catherine Pooler Designs has a lot of colours, but it is easy to pass the time when watching a film.
