Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of Foundations Box Blog Hop.Today I am sharing a few Clean and Simple cards made with Catherine Pooler's Foundations Box. I'm super happy to be part of this team and thank you so much Catherine for having me. Okay!! This box has got all the awesome goodies perfect for beginners or for masters. If you want to know more details about this box please click here.

A little about Foundations Box

This box contains Pre-scored Card Stocks, five Ink Pads, three Stamp Sets and one Acrylic Block all from Catherine Pooler Designs. 

Card Stocks - These card stocks come in a packet of thirty sheets. These are very smooth, bright and perfect for any type of technique. 

Ink Pads - Rich, vibrant, juicy, gives full coverage to the image, gives the crisp impression and I'm absolutely in love with these inks

Stamp Set - They are made of high quality photopolymer, and they are so versatile.

I made six cards along with videos. I didn't do or use any fancy things at all. These cards are pretty straight forward and the design itself speaks about the card. So let's get started!


CARD #1


Stamps used - For Everything
Inks used - Rockin' Red, Green Skirt and Midnight


DETAILS

  1. I took the card stock and folded the creased line well.
  2. Next I took the stripe stamp from the set and inked up with Rockin' Red ink and stamped once onto the scratch paper and then stamped on to the main card front. This gives a little muted tone of the ink.
  3. I did the same with the green ink also and created that plaid background.
  4. Next I took the tiny little cup and the sentiment from the set and stamped onto another panel with Rockin' Red Ink and Midnight Black Ink respectively and fussy cut it with my scissors.
  5. Next I added droplets of black paint with paint brush and allowed it to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
  6. Finally I adhered the cup and the sentiment with foam tape and finished my card.

I made a video for you from start to finish to show you how I made this card. Enjoy :)



CARD #2


Stamps used - For Everything
Inks used - Fiesta Blue, Rockin' Red and Midnight 


DETAILS

  1. I took the card stock and folded the creased lines well
  2. Next I took the stamp from For Everything Set, stamped once onto the scratch paper and then stamped again onto the main panel.
  3. Next I pulled a few sentiments that go well together, arranged them onto the card front, picked up with acrylic block and stamped with Midnight Ink
  4. Finally stamped the tiny letter in Rockin' Red, fussy cut it and adhered it onto the card front.

CARD #3


Stamps used - Amazing Florals and For Everything
Inks used - Green Skirt, Rockin' Red, Orange Twist and Midnight

DETAILS

  1. I took the white card stock and folded the creased lines well
  2. Next I took a bunch of leaf stamps from Amazing Florals Set and stamped with Rockin' Red, Green Skirt and Orange Twist inks
  3. Before stamping, after inking, I took a paper towel and picked up the little ink from the edges of the stamp.This gives an Ombre effect to the stamped image
  4. Added tiny droplets of black paint and stamped the sentiment with Midnight Ink at the bottom of the card.
