Paradise Found Release by Catherine Pooler


Welcome to the Paradise Found & Spa Ink Release from Catherine Pooler Designs! 


Hold onto your seats because this is a great release.  Have you seen the beautiful new ink colors?  Let me tell you they are gorgeous!!  


Also, if you had your eye on the Naturally Inspired SOA box and were waiting for those items to arrive in the store, you're in luck because they are releasing today too!  Whoop, Whoop!  If you'd like to shop now to make sure you get what you want before it possibly sells out, you can shop here now!

Today I have two cards to share with you using new products and new ink.

Walking in a {Plaid} Winter Wonderland

Jen Carter Plaid Winter Wonderland 2

This is my favorite card that I made with this release.  I started by stamping this awesome new Plaid Background Stamp with Midnight ink (it looks gorgeous stamped in the new colors too!!).  I trimmed the edges down so that the Midnight cardstock would show on each side.

This new Small Doily Die is so pretty!  I die cut it out of Kraft cardstock.  I then stamped some of the "greenery" from the new Winter Wonderland in Midnight ink and the new Eucalyptus ink color that you'll love for all things floral!  The sentiment and bow are also from the Winter Wonderland set as well. I tied some black twine around the middle of where the doily would go and then popped up the doily with dimensional tape.

A Winter Wonderland Wish

Jen Carter CP Winter Woodland Best Wishes 1

I love this new Winter Wonderland set and all of the wonderful things you can do with it!  There are also coordinating Winter Wonderland dies.  For this card I stamped the birch trees from the set on white linen paper for some texture using Black Jack Ink stamped off once and then stamped again for an even lighter tree.  I smooshed some ink onto an acrylic block and then used an aqua pen to pick up the color and draw the lines on the tree.  I know it looks labor intensive but it went really fast!  I stamped the deer in Icing on the Cake ink and the bunny is also stamped with that ink but stamped off once first.  I masked off the tree so the bunny looks likes she's hiding behind it.  The bird is stamped with the new Peppermint Scrub ink.

For the top of the card I stamped the snowflake cluster from the Winter Wonderland stamp set in VersaMark Ink and then embossed with the newly released, exclusive (and pretty cool!!) Wanderlust Embossing Powder.  I die cut the gorgeous Best Die on paper that I had blended Juniper MistDaydream & It's a Boy inks.  I then pressed the die cut into VersaMark Ink and embossed it with the same beautiful Wanderlust Embossing Powder.  The "wishes" sentiment is stamped from the Simply the Best Stamp Set.

Spa Ink Color Collection

Jen Carter CP Spa Ink Colors Swatch

I wanted to stamp out all of the gorgeous new colors for you so that you can see them together.  (This stamp is from the Medallion Mix-Up Stamps also being released today.) These are perfect rich colors, great for all of your Fall & Winter themed cards!  I LOVE them so much!  Pictured above are Royal Treatment, Juniper Mist, Daydream, Eucalyptus, Green Tea, Sauna, Mandarin Spice & Peppermint Scrub.  Believe me they are totally worth the investment!  You can purchase them HERE! 😀  And, if you don't have any of these gorgeous inks yet, why not treat yourself to the entire collection for Christmas??!!  You can find the complete ink collection HEREThey are honestly my favorite inks ever!

  24. Love the soft look of your woodland card. Catherine's inks are amazing for generation stamping. I have just created my first cards using the Winterhaven collection and created a card with the poinsettia stamp by simply stamping the poinsettia 6 times withour reinking. I'm hoping to photograph my card tonight so that I can share it on my blog and at StampNation.
