NEW Catherine Pooler Inks & Stamps Release


Welcome to Day 1 of the NEW Catherine Pooler Release!  This is an exciting day because not only are there a bunch of great stamp & dies sets and a stencil available to order now, but there are also new inks!! :)  EIGHT new inks to be exact and they coordinate beautifully with the last ink release of the Spa Ink: Paradise Found Colors

Today we are showcasing Zen Feathers Stamps & Dies, Chevron Cheer Stamps and Ovals & Flowers Dies along with the new ink colors.

Introducing 8 New Fabulous Ink Colors



Here's a picture of the new colors Spa Ink: Zen.  Ignore the smudges, I have used them a ton the last few weeks! Did I mention that they are available to order NOW! Shop here!  :)


I wanted to share a picture of a background that I stamped using the entire collection of the Spa Inks together.  I'll share how I used this on a card on Thursday, so be sure to come back to see it then.  Aren't they all beautiful stamped together?  And I love how they make beautiful new colors when overlapped too.  I used a stamp from my favorite new stamp set from this release called Eat, Sleep, Create (which I'll also share more about on Thursday as well).

Happy Birthday Watercolored
There are so many fun products to play with in this new release!  For my first card I used the new Zen Feather, Chevron Cheer & the gorgeous Stained Glass Cover Plate

Jen Carter Zen Feathers Stained Glass Chevron Birthday

For this card I die cut the beautiful (get it before it's sold out, I think it'll go fast!) Stained Glass Cover Plate with white cardstock.  If you look closely at the cover plate design you'll notice that it has a large circle in the center.  I snipped off the pieces from the inside of the circle so that the center would be completely open. I adhered the panel to my white card base and stamped the sentiment (I'm loving that font!) from Chevron Cheer with Black Jack ink.

I die cut six of the flowers from the Zen Feather die set, stamped them with Versamark from the Zen Feather stamp set & then embossed them in white.  I touched the ink pads to the lid of the inks and then used an aqua brush to pick up the ink and then colored the flowers.  The colors I used are Skylight, PolishedShea Butter, Mint to Be & Juniper Mist. I adhered the flowers to the card base with dimensional tape (except for the two in the middle).

Chevron Thanks
This next card I stuck with a flower theme but added another fun background.

Jen Carter Chevron Cheers Thanks Love Grows

I first stamped the chevron oval from Chevron Cheer and then used the new, must have Thanks die (such a gorgeous hand lettered font!) to cut the word out of the center.  I popped up that entire panel and used a turquoise paper to add some contrast for the background.

I stamped the flowers from the Love Grows stamp set in AquatiniPolished, Shea Butter & Royal Treatment and the leaves in Spruce & Seafoam.  I hand cut the flowers & leaves but there is a coordinating Love Grows die set that I'd recommend.
