3 Easy Cards featuring the Catherine Pooler’s Caroling Sentiments Stampset

Hello friends. Catherine Pooler’s Caroling Sentiments Stampset is a great stampset to create quick cards. It features large sentiments that are shaped like images and is part of the new Jolly Holiday release. If you need some quick Christmas cards this year, check it out! Super cute!

For this first card, I used the cute snowman sentiment image. I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and another to 4 x 5-1/4” for the top panel. I stamped the background with the snowflake and mittens from the Catherine Pooler Caroling Sentiments Stampset using It’s A Boy and from Catherine Pooler.

I stamped the snowman image onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Midnight Ink from Catherine Pooler. I stamped a second hat and scarf as well. I colored the hat and scarf with COPIC markers. I used BG000 + BG01 and N5 + N7 for the hat; and R29 + R59 for the scarf. I diecut it with the coordinating dies, added some Foam Tape to the back and adhered it to the card panel.

I added some Love from Lizi Straight Silver Glitter Peel-offs and adhered the panel to the card. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Silver Moondust Glitter Drops.

I left the inside of the card blank.

For my second card, I wanted to play with heat embossing one of the sentiments and the onament one seemed fitting. I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/2 x 8″ and scored at 4″ to create a card base and another to 3-3/4 x 4-1/4″ for the top panel. I used the Narrow Stripe Cover Plate Die to create a stencil using masking paper, then stenciled using It’s a Girl Ink from Catherine Pooler. I diecut a window using the ornament die from the Caroling Sentiments Dies and set that aside.

Next I stamped the ornament sentiment image from the Catherine Pooler Caroling Sentiments Stampset using Versamark Ink onto Montval Acid-Free Cold Press Watercolor Paper and heat embossed it with Gold Emboss Powder. I used Mint to Be and Deck the Halls Inks to watercolor the image. Once dried, I added Foam Tape to the back of the top panel, adhered the ornament behind it, added some Love from Lizi Matt Gold Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers and then to the card base. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Metallic Bright Gold Drops.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Casual Fridays Snowy Sayings stampset with It’s a Girl Ink.

For my third card, I kept it fairly simple — a little stamping and heat embossing. I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and another to 3-3/4 x 5-1/2″ for the top panel. On a seperate piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″

I stamped the tree sentiment image from the Catherine Pooler Caroling Sentiments Stampset with Deck the Halls and Over Coffee Inks as well as three sets of the presents using Cranberry Fizz, Skylight and Versamark Ink and heat embossed one set with Gold Emboss Powder. I also stamped and heat embossed the medium star with Gold Emboss Powder. I diecut all the images and used Foam Tape and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card panel.

I cut two strips of Under the Tree Pattern Paper to approximately 3/8 x 5-1/2” and adhere it to the card base on the left and right of the card panel. I adhered the front panel to the card base with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and finished it off by adding some Love from Lizi Gold Mirror Moondust Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from a very old stampset I have with Cranberry Fizz and used some of the leftover presents to adhere at the bottom.
