Layered Stamping with Catherine Pooler Designs Ink

CatherineCP Designs, Projects, Techniques, Videos

layered-stamped-rainbow-circles-3This week we launched our first 12 colors (plus Midnight) of our Catherine Pooler Designs line of Ink Pads!  We can't wait until our stamper friends get their hands on these and the web lights up with rainbows!

When you begin creating with your rainbow, we hope you'll share your projects with us on social media!   Use #catherinepoolerdesigns and #partycollection so we can find your creations!

In this video, we'll layer ink colors on top of each other for a fun, bright hand made card to make for a friend.

Two things that stand out in this video are:

  • These inks stamp SOLID, beautiful images with just a light “Love Tap” on the ink pad.  They are so easy to ink up and BAM!  You stamp and you've got a solid image.  No splotchiness!
  • When you go from a dark to a light ink, your lighter ink color does not get contaminated or muddy from the previous color.

Happy, happy  HAPPY stamping times ahead with these inks!  WOOT!

SHIPPING UPDATE: Raleigh is recovering from the snow and ice we got over the weekend….school was out for THREE days!  I know…those of you that live in the north are shaking your heads.  Listen, I'm a northern girl.  I grew up in Upstate NY.  I've seen SNOW.  I've dug my car out of a snow bank and continued on to work many-o-times.

It might seem crazy, but we get snow and ICE.  Literally, my cul-de-sac was an ice skating rink this weekend and through Tuesday.

This happens once a year at most, so the city does not invest in snow removal equipment.  So we get stuck inside waiting for Mother Nature to MELT IT!    It's been slowly melting for a couple days, but today….today, it was 71 degrees and that sure did take care of the rest of it.

Our amazing and awesome fulfillment center has a bunch-o-other clients (but we are the most FUN) and the snow put them behind.

They are “digging” their way out and should be caught up by tomorrow.  Fingers crossed that all orders placed by early Friday morning will ship before the end of the day.  (Fingers AND toes crossed!).


MIDNIGHT INK PAD UPDATE:  Just a reminder to give your stamps a LOVE TAP with these inks.  

The black is Archival (we chose that for it's awesome properties including being waterproof and alcohol marker safe) and it WILL stain your stamps.  Remember, the pad is foam and if you press too hard, your stamp will sink into the ink pad and cover your whole stamp with black ink.  Then, guess what your stamp will look like…. 🙂

Say it with me…LOVE TAP!  🙂

STOCK UPDATE:  Speaking of our Midnight Ink Pad!  We are sold out!  This means that the Full Party Collection is sold out because it includes a black ink pad.

That's ok, you can still buy the “New to the Party” ink pads and the Rockin' Red, Orange Twist, Grass Skirt and Fiesta Blue ink pads separately, though some of those are almost sold out, too.

You can purchase the Foundations Box that has Midnight, Rockin' Red, Orange Twist, Grass Skirt and Fiesta Blue ink pads.  (there are only about 15 of these left in stock, too!)

RESTOCK OF INK PADS:  We should be restocked with ink pads by the end of the January…hopefully sooner!
