Catherine Pooler Fly Daddy Blog Hop + PRIZES!

Hello there and welcome to my stop on the Catherine Pooler Fly Daddy Blog Hop! I’m so glad you’re here!

I had REEL fun playing with this release y’all! As soon as I saw it I just knew I had to make a Father’s Day card for my Dad! (PSA: Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21st this year!)

If you can’t tell was giggling the whole time I was making this!

It started with the idea to add wiggle eyes to the fish and that cute worm in the Fly Daddy set– because oh yeah, wiggle eyes!!

Then I had the idea to let that cute lil worm swing free on the card! So I heat embossed the hook with brass embossing powder and then poked a whole through the top and tied it on with twine!

I hope it swings around when Dad pulls the card out of the envelope!

Before I go I wanted to talk about that background! It was super easy to do — I just smushed some fiesta blue and something borrowed inks right on my desk — J covered my desk with glass because I ruined my last two lol — and then misted it with water and pressed some watercolor paper right in the ink. I left some parts white to kind of look like foam from the waves. Then I die cut it with the new Wavy Color Plate — just love how this turned out!

A little touch of coordinating patterned papers just TIED it all toghether. And how about those Blackfoot River sequins? YES!


One lucky random commenter will receive a $25 gift card to the Catherine Pooler shop — yay!! The winner will be announced on the CP blog on May 27th.
