Catherine Pooler Housewarming Party




Have you seen Catherine Pooler's new blog?
She is having a housewarming party starting today!

The designer's at StampNation are sharing some inspiration with you today as we help her kick off  the Party!  There are lots of prizes to be won including, a one year subscription to StanpNation and over $300 in prizes from sponsors:

Some Odd Girl
Ellen Hutson
CAS-ual Fridays
Winnie & Walter
Penny Black
Pretty Pink Posh
Clearly Besotted
Hero Arts

There is a challenge for the Housewarming Party and the theme of the challenge is HOME. Each of the Design Team members (currrent, past and guests) have made a card for the challenge to share with you today.   Clearly Besotted's Home Sweet Home was the set I decided to use for my card, originally using the house but decided on the trees. I used the letters in the word HOME as my jumpstart for the card I have made for Catherine--heat embossing, ombre effect and multiple stamping. All the details about how you can play along are on Catherine's blog!
