Full of surreal beauty is the Butterfly in Bloom Stamp Set and Dies.  This work of art is part butterfly, part flower garden.  This large image stamp is a real statement piece for a card and features elegant sentiments like “you make life beautiful”.  The set also has accent flowers that can be used with the main image or as stand alone embellishments.

Erin Thompson

Erin outdid herself on this beauty! By putting the additional floral stamps die cut along this slimline card, they appear to be floating away. Such a cool effect!

ink splatter design background stamped image

Sometimes, you just need a big Ink Splat to add that extra bit of something to your card.  We have created that idea with this Background Stamp.  Ink this up in a subtile color for a bit of added interest to your card base or why not try with multiple, bold colors  and just add a sentiment.  This background stamp will add some artsy flair to your next project.

They say you shouldn't have a favorite, but this stamp set might become one of yours! The Favorite Day Ever Sentiments Stamp Set contains mix and match sentiment stamps for creating the perfect greeting for all your favorite people.

For all your favorites you'll want the Favorite on a Line Die.  This fun word die can pair up with a secondary sentiment from the Favorite Day Ever Sentiments Stamp Set or just a main image stamp to create a great focal point for your card.

The Angled Strips Cover Plate was designed to bring ease to multi-colored striped backgrounds.  Use the direct to paper method to color each section and piece back on for a fun striped look or pop a few with foam tape for added interest.

Erin combined the “two favorites” with the angled strip for this fun card. It's just perfect the way the Favorite on a Line word die fits in so many different orientations.

I love how Lisa's card looks like she cut and popped out shapes from the background with all those cute scissors! The patterned handles are such a great way to incorporate added pops of color on your card.

Funky patterns that may have been peeled right off your childhood home's wall, the Off the Wall Stamp Set is great for a pop of texture.  These three large patterned stamps will create a fun focal point for your card.  Use them as background elements and pop the addition of a main image- simple and wonderful!

Daniel West

This is exactly what we had in mind when we designed the Off the Wall Background Stamps! Stamp one of the patterned images, then layer die cut images over it for a custom card that will BRIGHTEN someone's day!

Inspired by a trilliant cut diamond is the Trilliant Slimline Die.  This faceted die is full of geometric interest and will make a cool background layer to your slimline card.

You are going to love playing with various layouts of these super cute light bulbs. Ilina created this slimline and was so smart to keep the center where the light is shining lighter on her ink blended background.

The Bright Idea Slimline Paper and Menlo Park Sequins are the perfect addition and provide a cool Spa Color scheme to get you going! This slimline paper has funky and abstract geometric patterns in a cool spa color combo of Pink Champagne, Rose Petals, Rouge, Shea Butter, Sauna, Green Tea, Skylight, Bay Breeze and Cove Blue.

It's so simple to whip out a card with just a bit of patterned paper. This card was created easily by just adding a sentiment block and popped up image stamp. It would certainly brighten my day!

green and yellow sequin mix

This fun mix of light-bright yellows, green and blue-green sequins coordinates with the spa colors in our Bright Idea Slimline Patterned Paper Pack. This mix will light up your life!

Color Made Easy with CPD Patterned Papers

Catherine General

If you ever struggle with where to start with your Ink Color Combos, we get it. Sometimes you just need that figured out for you to get things rolling in the right direction. Well, we've got you covered!

Each pack of Catherine Pooler Designs Patterned Paper is designed with a specially curated ink color combo as the inspiration. We pick the palette to go with the stamps and dies in Collection the paper is featured and think it makes a perfect place to start with your cards.

The coordinating colors are listed right on the paper pack – like this I Love You Soy Patterned Paper. Mixing and matching them will give you endless fun in creating. Then you can easily pop in one of the patterns (or two) on your card for a just-right match.

This combo of pink shades and red are the perfect traditional colors for a Valentine card. Look at those tiny little hearts!

Adding in your blue-green shades to the mix works a dream. A little pop of Cummerbund and Mint To Be are always a good plan and make this stripe pattern extra special.

We take our Color Made Easy seriously…so even our Sequins are specially chosen to pull from the Patterned Paper colors. This Romance mix was created to go with the I Love You Soy Patterned Paper and to play with the pinks and pops of minty blues.

When you stamp with these colors, you know it will all come together harmoniously! Some Samba and Do-Si-Do Ink really pops with this little patterned paper and a couple of sequins tie it all together! Ta-Da!

The Happy Hearts Slimline Paper has a similar feel but uses a different color combo. These blue-violets and the red-violet look amazing together. How about that pop of Chiffon!?!?!

The Loveladies Sequin Mix is all about those blue-violet hues and has a pop of tiny little yellow flowers. Isn't it perfect?

Shaker cards come together easy as 1…2…3…with a pop of patterned paper and the coordinating sequin mix. The colors combine just right and I love how inspired I get by having the color guesswork already solved!

Our next collection of products hits the shop on Wednesday, June 9 and we can't wait to share our next two packs of patterned paper and the fabulous inks they coordinate with!

Catherine General

embossed background on hand stamped card with puffin and birthday greeting
Kristie Goulet

Kristie made this simple layout card by white embossing the Making Waves Background Stamp and ink blending just a little part in Bay Breeze ink. I love how it creates an ocean beneath the puffin and how she perched him up on the sentiment as a focal point for the card. So smart!

hand stamped card with wave stamped background and ink blending
Kristie Goulet

This one has a similar technique but she masked and blended two colors just in the center. Again, this creates a perfect pop of color on the background and makes such an impact with the black and white sentiment and birds.

hand stamped nautical card with puffins and waves

Lisa cut her Making Waves Background Stamp piece and popped it up over the Rocky Cove Die. These work together so well in creating the scene for this fun Puffin Party!

Daniel West

Daniel made his own card stock by using the direct-to-paper technique with his Bay Breeze ink and then cut out the Among the Seaweed Cover Plate. The ink blend of Tranquil and Cove Blue behind makes this cool under water scene.

Lisa Harrolle

Lisa used a similar technique but blended both the Sea Glass and Bay Breeze inks on her die. It really pops against the white background and adds such nice texture. Look at the ocean floor she created with all those shell stamps- too cute!

slimline card with patterned paper and puffin stamped images
Lisa Harrolle

Here, she made the sweetest little slimline card with this stack of puffins. The Seaside patterned paper is all color matched to mix nicely with our ink colors and the patterns work so well paired together.

shaker card with puffins and patterned paper

On a recent live, I created this little shaker complete with a shaking crab inside! The addition of the patterned paper on the background really added fun interest and the Portsmouth sequins are color matched to go with the paper like a dream! Making shakers is so easy with our color combos!

Multi Layering Stamps and Color Combinations

Catherine General

In this Live Stream Replay, we'll explore color and how to choose combinations for card making projects and Multi Layered Stamping! We'll also look at different shades layered together and how to get the best results when lining them up. View the video on Youtube here.

When using the Color Wheel for multi-step stamping, choose one row on the wheel (RO – red orange, for example) and use two or three shades to create the layers. The Color Wheel makes it so easy!

Download the Party Color Wheel here.

The Spa Color Wheel will be available this summer when the next 4 Beach Retreat Inks are introduced!

Ocean Chums Stamp Set with…

Catherine General

The Ocean Chums Stamp Set hit the shop a couple weeks ago and we've been making so many fun cards with it on our Facebook and Youtube Live Streams. This set works great on its own, or add some classic products from our line for so many design possibilities!

For this card, I added the Ship's Wheel and the Instant Thanks Die for an adorable shaker card. You can see the replay on Facebook here.

I created this card on this Facebook Live and boy, did my fingers get inky!!! I love creating backgrounds like this, but this one gave me a couple issues. Check out the live to hear about it! A Stitched Heart Die to anchor the jelly fish and seahorse, a few sequins and BAM! A super fun card.

Catherine Birthday, General

Who wouldn't like an invite to this Puffin Party? The Coveside Bundle features the Puffin Party Stamps and Dies and the Rocky Cove Die. This little bundle is ready to just add ink and paper for card making fun!

Lisa Harrolle

Brand Ambassador, Lisa, created a pile of puffins (or is it a colony?) by using a die cut to do some smart masking. She also combined two of the sentiments to make one and it worked out like a dream!

slimline hand stamped card with row of stamped puffins in party hats
Lisa Harrolle

On this card, she did a little direct to paper ink swiping with the four new Beach Retreat Ink shades. What a fun idea for a background on this slimline design. I just love the little party hats!

Lisa Harrolle

The Rocky Cove Die has embossed detail and creates a perfect perch for the puffins. Mixing in some of our Seaside Patterned Paper from the Seaside Extras Bundle is a terrific addition to this festive layout.

Daniel West

Daniel created such awesome interest with his ink blending and water splatter on the Rocky Cove Die. I love how he cut that in half to make a larger cove for his birdies to par-tay!! This bundle is so much fun! How will you use yours?

Sea-riously Fun Card Ideas! Deep Sea Bundle

Catherine General

The Deep Sea Bundle, featuring the Ocean Chums Stamps and Dies and the Coral Garden Background Stamp, is now in the SHOP! There are so many ways to use these products so I thought I would share a few from our brand ambassadors to inspire your card making!

Erin Thompson

Erin created this beauty by embossing the Coral Garden Background Stamp over an ink blended background. This card is brining all the under-water vibes and sparkle! I love her little details she added to the jelly fish with a white gel pen.

Erika Post

Erika stamped the background in Sea Glass, Seafoam and Cove Blue with a Misti and then did a light ink blend of tranquil over top. Using a blender pen and some of the same Beach Retreat Inks to color the accents on the octopus tied it all together- Color Made Easy!

Another beauty from Erin. This one is a shaker! By creating the shaker in the center of the card with a mini cover plate from her stash, she made a cute focal point and spot for the sentiment.

I made this one on a recent LIVE! I used a brayer to lightly add some Tranquil ink to the card base and then stamped the Coral Garden with Cove Blue. I love how beautifully these four new Beach Retreat Inks work together.

The sea creatures in the Ocean Chums Stamp set are sea-riously fantastic!

If you're looking for more inspiration, be sure to catch our card making Live Streams and Replays on FACEBOOK and YOUTUBE! Happy Stamping!

Introducing New Spa Ink Colors…Beach Retreat!

Catherine General

Escape to the shore with our Beach Retreat Spa Ink Colors.  These relaxing, muted shades will take you away to a seaside haven.  The first four colors, Sea Glass, Bay Breeze, Tranquil, and Cove Blue are shades of greens and blues that compliment the current green and blue colors in our Spa Collection. 

This bundle of 4 will give you cool ocean vibe hues with our trusty CP ink properties like smooth ink blending, clean and crisp stamped images and water reactive techniques.  

Like a beautiful, eye-catch piece of turned glass, Sea Glass Ink is a gorgeous, medium-tone shade of green-blue.  This muted Spa tone joins the green-blue family with Seafoam and Bay Breeze and will fall between them perfectly for multi-step stamping and ombre ink blending.

A dark and serene green-blue, Bay Breeze Ink will transport you to a tropical paradise.  This muted Spa Ink is darker than its color-family mate Sea Glass and will be a perfect choice when stamping natural elements like leaves and plants.  Pair it with Sea Glass and Seafoam for perfect Color Made Easy blends!

When looking for that just-right shade of pale blue, Tranquil Ink will be your go to choice!  Tranquil is a soft, muted Spa color that is lighter than Stone Blue.  This shade is ideal for sky and water elements and will be a gorgeous accent color to Orange Peel.  This ink color is a beautiful and relaxing tone.

Cove Blue Ink is deep, vintage blue.  This muted color is a part of the blue family with its lighter friends Stone Blue and Tranquil.  Blend these three together for gorgeous ombre backgrounds.  Try pairing it with a complementary shade, like Mandarin Spice.

These gorgeous new inks are in the shop now!
