Catherine Pooler Designs - Sponsor of the Week

Hello, crafty friends!!

Welcome to my blog!!  I am excited to share with you a new video and cards I created for a wonderful company:  Catherine Pooler Designs.  They are the sponsor of the week at the crafting group, Crafting of Hue.  

I am very happy to share with you the cards I created and a tip on how to get a good stamping impression using their unique ink pads.  The pads are made of a type of foam, similar to pigment ink pads, but thicker.  You just need to ink lightly and press gently when you stamp on cardstock.  The end result is wonderful.
