Turn your leftovers into cards

Turn your leftovers into cards! Catherine Pooler At Home release

It is the start of the pre-release inspirations for the next Catherine Pooler release: At Home and I’m playing with a couple of items in the At Home bundle. There is a beautiful ‘This Way Up Cover Plate’ die and I created my own makeshift stencil, but ended up using it to show you you can also turn your leftovers into cards! And you know what, it turned out better than the original. Also, I had a few hiccups with the card but still finished it off, it’s all in the eye of the beholder!

The new release is available to buy in the shop from the 9th of February 2022. If you’re a StampNation member, you can shop the release on the 8th of February 12pm EST.

written tutorial

turn leftovers into cards

First die-cut the This Way Up Cover Plate die out of white card. Temporarily adhere this die-cut over another white card panel. Next, mix a small amount of embossing paste with Pucker Up Ink. If you prefer small pads, the Date Night Mini inks are being released!

Using a spatula, smear the coloured embossing paste over the die-cut and through to the card panel. Repeat this process, with each of the other 7 colours in the Date Night Mini inks collection:

After all the ink is coloured, remove the die-cut panel. 

Now, I used reinkers and this added a lot more liquid to the embossing paste, and it’s bled on my card panel, so I recommend using a very small amount of ink, or smoosh your ink pad down for some ink. Once the panel is dry, trim this down and add to a white cardbase. 

Finish this card iff with a sentiment from the Stacked Inspiration Sentiments and embellished with gold sequins. 

turn leftovers into cards: don't discard you make shift stencil!

Now don’t discard your This Way Up Cover Plate die die-cut panel which is covered in leftover embossing paste. Once this panel is dry, trim the panel down and foam mount onto a white card base. 

Turn your leftovers into cards

Again add a sentiment from the Stacked Inspiration Sentiments , heat embossing this in gold onto a white card. For both cards, the sentiments were die-cut using the  Scallops & dots die set. 

Foam mount the sentiment onto front and once more embellish with gold sequins.
