Zen Garden Release Blog Hop Day 1

CatherineCP Designs, Gallery, Projects, Thank You

ZG_BlogHop_BlogIt's our first day of blog hops for the Zen Garden Release, my friends!  We have a line up of four days of hops to introduce you to the fabulous new products we have hitting the shop today.  All week we'll be showcasing our new Zen Garden Ink Pads along with the stamps, dies, stencil and brand new cover plate.

Today the Creative Team is (mostly) featuring the Zen Feather Stamp Set and Dies, Chevron Cheer Stamp Set and Ovals and Flowers Dies.

Chevron CheerThanks Die, You Die, Chevron Cheer Stamp Set – I used the Pattern of the Rings stencil to perfectly line these flowers up!  LOVE that stencil for this purpose!!!

I began with Rose Petal, then moved around the rainbow in ROY G BIV order going light to dark.  This is every single color in the Spa Line of inks.

You can see how beautiful this muted, sophisticated color palette is and how wonderfully the colors all work together.

Zen Feather Sponged and WetZen Feather Stamp Set –  I stamped the feather in Versamark ink on watercolor cardstock, then sponged Daydream to the left of it with my Ink Blending Tool.  Next, I sprayed it with water to smooth it out and get some watermarks and let it dry.

To the right of the feather, I sponged Seafoam, then sprayed it with water and let it dry.

I stamped the sentiment, layered it on black, then attached it to a card base.  This card is slightly smaller than my normal A2 size and measures 4 – 1/4 x 4-3/4.

To see the entire collection, download the PDF, or click here for the new section in our shop.


What's a hop without prizes?  For each day of our four days of blog hops, we'll be randomly picking two people to win their Zen Garden Ink Pads.  (If you already have them, a $45 GC will be issued).


How do you enter?
