Catherine Pooler Ink Party Collection Release Blog Hop

Share This!

newink-availablenow Today is the day!!!

It’s been one year, almost exactly, since I started working on my dream of inks a reality.

It’s been an amazing journey…mostly awesome…with a sprinkling of really hard days where I’ve either been banging my head against the wall, or a sobbing heap in the corner.

The day is finally here, you all have been so amazing and excited and the first stampers that have used our inks have given them rave reviews!  So all this goodness definitely outweighs the tough parts of bringing this gorgeous rainbow to market.

May I introduce you to the first 12 colors (plus midnight!)…the Party Collection of Ink Pads!


Much of this is covered in the video, but here is a run-down!

What is great about these inks?

  • Color coordination will be a snap!  Our first collection, the Party Collection is made up of all vibrant, saturated colors that will go together perfectly.  No more guessing which color goes with which!
  • No more splotchy images!  Two or three gentle LOVE TAPS are all you need to get full coverage on your stamp which transfers beautifully to your cardstock.
  • No more muddy, dirty stamped images when residue from a dark ink gets picked up by a light color!  (I had to show this to Randall about 15 times with different stamps and ink colors before he believed it.  #truestory)


How do CP Designs foam pads ink up clear stamps much more nicely than linen topped felt pads?? Foam transfers ink better to the stamps, and a well inked stamp produces a better quality image.

Simple as that.

Felt pads also usually end up getting a “depression” in the middle of the pad which makes it more difficult to ink stamps evenly, an issue that you will not experience with foam pads.

Foam pads release ink very easily on anything you touch, so experiment and play with them to get used to this amazing pad!  Sometimes I end up with some pretty inky fingers after stamping, but they wash up pretty well…and hey!  Inky fingers are the sign of a happy stamper!  I wear them as a badge of honor.

Catherine Pooler Designs are premium dye inks and they are all non-permanent, except for Midnight. Midnight is an archival dye ink, is permanent and is safe for watercoloring and for using alcohol ink markers.

Let’s see them up close and personal! 

These inks are available in the shop now!  You can purchase the ink pad, the ink refills, the new 8 colors in a bundle, all 13 colors in a bundle, the first 5 colors of ink refills in a bundle, etc…

(Our first five inks were first available in our Foundations Box, in case you missed that!)



Hop along to the bloggers linked in our blog hop list, leave comments on each blog and on on Thursday, January 12 at 6 pm eastern, I’ll choose two winners from all the comments to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the shop!


Our amazing Design Team have been working on some pretty incredible projects using these inks.  I can’t wait for you to see what they’ve created!

How to hop:  Leave a comment on my blog letting me know which color is your favorite and what your favorite feature of these inks pads are, then click on Laurel’s name to visit her blog, leave a comment, then click the next name on the list and so on….have fun hopping!

    Tiara is my favorite color because we all know every girl needs a Tiara!!! I love these inks because they are such great colors that will definitely be used frequently by me! Loved how the colors were revealed and hope the inks are within my budget and are in stock when I save enough pennies to get them!! :-)

  • Susan White January 10, 2017, 9:20 am

  • Theresa January 10, 2017, 9:26 am

    Forgot to leave my favorite color…since orange is my favorite color I’m loving Orange twist but Aquatini is a close second. :)

  • Colleen Balija January 10, 2017, 9:26 am

    Catherine Im so happy for you. We’ve never met, but I feel like we’re friends thru SN and watching your business grow. You’re a beautiful person, and I wish you so much success.

    Your SN friend, Colleen

  • Julie M January 10, 2017, 9:26 am

    Can’t wait until I get the new colors. They are awesome.

  • Jennifer Schuler January 10, 2017, 9:27 am

    All the colors are fabulous but my favorite ink pad is the Midnight Black! It is the best black in my collection! (I think I have 7 different brands of black ink pad) It stamps flawlessly every time. Just fabulous!

  • Hoosier January 10, 2017, 9:30 am

    Love the new colors.

  • Taasha B January 10, 2017, 9:31 am

    I love how crisp these Ink are on the paper. I got the foundations box and knew that I wanted the other colors. My Favorite is Party Dress.

  • Paige January 10, 2017, 9:33 am

    I love the inks in the foundations box! My kids love them even more! We were making tags for Christmas presents and they were so impressed that they were getting clear images every time, even with the Tree stamp!

  • chris boldovici January 10, 2017, 9:35 am

    Hi Catherine! I love Aquatini, it’s goregous! And love how these inks stamps to nice no splotchy images, just nice and crisp…….. Thanks for making these……

  • Lois John January 10, 2017, 9:36 am

    My fsvourite colour is Fiesta Blue! But all the colkours are gorgeous!! I love how easy they are to use, once you get used to not smashing the stamp onto the stamp pad!!

  • Kathleen Reilly January 10, 2017, 9:36 am

    The new ink colors are lovely. I especially like the Aquatini


  • Linda Gorman January 10, 2017, 9:38 am

    Ordered the new inks and all the refills! Thank you for the bundles!!! Got my SN gift too!!!

  • Linda Gorman January 10, 2017, 9:39 am

    Forgot I was so excited to get them all. Tiara is my favorite!!!

  • Vivian January 10, 2017, 9:39 am

    I ordered my ink! Can’t wait to get them!!!

  • Ginger January 10, 2017, 9:40 am

    What fun! More toys! It’s Flirty Fuchia for me. Congrats!

  • Donna M Cervantez January 10, 2017, 9:42 am

    Party Dress, Party Dress has to be my favorite. I have the Foundations box so I am lucky enough to have been able to use these inks and they are awesome! Love how easy it is to ink up your stamps

  • Becca Yahrling January 10, 2017, 9:44 am

    These are all beautiful colors and love them all. Truth be told, I have
    three favorites, but to pick one, I’ll go with Flirty Fuchsia since purple
    is my most favorite color. And I love that they are a foam pad & will
    therefore, stamp more evenly than felt. I need these in my stash! lol

  • Karen January 10, 2017, 9:44 am

    Catherine, all the new colors look yummy so it’s hard to pick a favorite – maybe “something borrowed” or “flirty fischa”

  • auntbubbels/janetgillen January 10, 2017, 9:48 am

    Excellent job Catherine, your colors really jump off the page. Thank you for all your hard work.

  • Ina Nelson January 10, 2017, 9:48 am

    I think tiara would be great to have. Although they all look great. Love the way they coordinate.

  • Jane M January 10, 2017, 9:50 am

    My favorite colors are Aquatini and Lime Rickey. I love how these inks stamp a solid image. Coverage is perfect! I also like that all the inks are so nicely coordinated.

  • Nicki January 10, 2017, 9:51 am

    Your inks look wonderful.

  • Suzanne T. January 10, 2017, 9:59 am

    These inks are so amazing, it makes the card stand out in color. Using them is unbelievable, because they are so easy to use, and I love the way one can use the generation stamping method and love how, it turns out. Amazing!!!

  • dale January 10, 2017, 9:59 am

    Good morning,

    The colors are sooooooo basically beautifully. You can just reach out and touch them. You can feel their warmth and their vibrant color.

    God bless!

  • Patricia Benger January 10, 2017, 10:01 am

    My favorite color is Tiara! I’m a sunshine kind of girl! One of the reasons why I like your inks is because of the the “juiciness”(sp?)!

  • Jenn W January 10, 2017, 10:02 am

    Such gorgeous color, Catherine! I love them all! Had such a good time on facebook, guessing the colors and turning in for the reveals. Can’t wait to get my hands on these and absolutely can not wait to see what you come up with next!

  • Jean Purpura January 10, 2017, 10:03 am

    My favorite color is Orange Twist….It is the perfect true orange color. It makes me feel happy! I love how these inks stamp so crisply (is that a word?) The blending properties is awesome also….Thanks for making these PERFECT inks available to us.

  • Sidney January 10, 2017, 10:03 am

    It’s so hard to choose, but the party dress fills a such a need, since I was always stamping the Rickin’ Red twice to get a pink shade. But I must say, I love them all and decided to get them all! What fun!

  • Patti January 10, 2017, 10:06 am

    My favorite color is Aquatini, my favorite feature is that you use foam pad for a better impression.

  • auntbubbels/janetgillen January 10, 2017, 10:07 am

    Such an exciting time for you Catherine. Your inks look fabulous, and thank you for all your hard work.

  • LaVonne Smejkal January 10, 2017, 10:08 am

    I love that your inks are ink transfer free! No more muddy images!!! Clean up will be a breeze and images will truly show the rich colors that the ink pads are designed to stamp.

  • Tracy Bourdon-Thomas January 10, 2017, 10:09 am

    I love the Aquatini, and Flirty Fuchsia, they are so pretty! I can’t wait to try these,

  • Dian Seider January 10, 2017, 10:11 am

    I really like the sharpness of the ink – my stamped items really stand out!

  • Sue Richard January 10, 2017, 10:16 am

    I ordered just the 8 new inks for now. Can’t wait to get all 13 re-inkers.

  • Betty Bunch January 10, 2017, 10:17 am

    Love the new ink colors–I really like the yellow color (don’t remember its exact name).

  • Sue LD January 10, 2017, 10:17 am

    Great colors. My favorite is Fiesta Blue. I like that they don’t allow splotchy images!

  • Hope January 10, 2017, 10:18 am

    I {heart} them all … I truly cannot pick a favorite!!! My fav feature about foam is that they wont fray like the linen pads do!!!

  • Terry January 10, 2017, 10:19 am

    Love the inks can’t wait to try them

  • Teri January 10, 2017, 10:22 am

    I think the ink pads look amazing. I, along with many others I’m sure, thank you for the time, energy, angst & joy you put into making them. I love the blue colours & am so
    stoked that they all go together so well. I have trouble with that at times. I’d love to
    win some of them! Thanks!

  • Leanne in Cali January 10, 2017, 10:23 am

    Oh wow, I don’t think I have a favorite color, but I do love a good pink. The inks from the foundations box are fabulous and I can’t wait to get the new ones. I love your technique with the flowers stamping a different color on top—that’s gorgeous!! My favorite thing about the inks is how easy they are to use (when you don’t forget that they are not felt and push down too hard). Thanks so much!

  • Avra Williams January 10, 2017, 10:23 am

    Don’t make me choose a favorite! I love them all! But I’ll have to say that I’m partial to the blues. I’m getting used to the light “love tap” method, and that’s a great feature of these inks – it’s so easy to get great coverage of ink on your stamp

  • Karen Lindsay January 10, 2017, 10:28 am

    I love the first set of inks and the new colors are just as amazing. You definitely thought of everything. My favorite color would have to be Flirty Fuchsia. I’m a purple lover for sure!

  • Elyse January 10, 2017, 10:28 am

    So hard to pick a favorite color, but tiara is up at the top of the list followed by the blues! Can’t wait to get these fabulous ink pads.

  • Joanne Guarino January 10, 2017, 10:29 am

    I ordered after midnight last night (well early this morning!). I ordered the re-inkers for the ink pads from the Foundation Box and I ordered the new colors ink pads and re-inkers. The colors are so vibrant and I love how they all coordinate with each other! Can’t wait to play! Thank you Catherine!

  • Kathy Serrahn January 10, 2017, 10:29 am

    love all the colors, can’t wait to get the rest of colors in the mail

  • Tracy Bourdon-Thomas January 10, 2017, 10:34 am

    Got a quick ? How I’ll you know if we have posted on all the blocks? Some of them require a different email address than my main one (like google) and don’t ask our names. Just curious,

  • Laura Miller January 10, 2017, 10:34 am

    I think I’m a tutti fruit and aquatini kind of gal. I’m still getting used to the sponge pad – trying not to lose the detail of the stamp’s image.

  • Kim January 10, 2017, 10:34 am

    Love these ink pads, got the first five in the foundations box, can’t wait to get more!!!

  • Helen Gullett January 10, 2017, 10:35 am

    OH they are look so beautiful and juicy inks!! When it comes to rainbow… I LOVE ALL THE COLORS :D

  • Linda January 10, 2017, 10:37 am

    Love all the colors and the quality!

  • Bonnie Thrasher January 10, 2017, 10:37 am

    I got the foundations box, and I love these Inks. They are indeed vibrant and lush. I will definitely get all the new colors and the Reinkers.

  • Michelle Welling January 10, 2017, 10:42 am

    New ink pads and new colors. Feels like Christmas!

  • Pamela Gietzen January 10, 2017, 10:58 am

    LOVE how vibrant these stamps are! My favorite are party dress and flirty fuschia. Will be ordering soon.

  • Mary H. January 10, 2017, 11:02 am

    Love the colors and how well they combine with each other! Looking forward to receiving the new colors!

  • Mary Nelson January 10, 2017, 11:02 am

    I am loving my inks and can’t wait to get the rest of this incredible party collection. I am crazy over the layering technique and will be using it today!

  • Sue Brockhurst January 10, 2017, 11:02 am

    Do we store the inks upside down?

  • Kathy W January 10, 2017, 11:04 am

    Love all of the colors. I can’t wait to get them in my hands.

  • Erin Walsh January 10, 2017, 11:08 am

    Purchased my inks – excited to get them now, and ready to blog hop and get more ideas!

  • Peggy Pride January 10, 2017, 11:11 am

    I love the foam base since it is so easy to get a sharp full image. I love the Aquatini!

  • BeverlyBL January 10, 2017, 11:13 am

    Rockin’ Red looks good, and I like the idea of not transferring color to my next stamped image. Congrats on Stamp Nation’s 6th birthday and your new inks.

  • Darcy (Scrap2Day2Morrow) January 10, 2017, 11:17 am

    glad I ordered this morning. Cannot wait to get my hands on the Aquatina and the Flirty Fuschia for a couple of projects

  • Catherine January 10, 2017, 11:19 am

    You don’t have to!

  • Brenda January 10, 2017, 11:22 am

    I’m a brand new stamper so it’s fantastic to be able to purchase a whole set of inks, that isn’t huge so not a budget breaker, they coordinate beautifully and they are able to do more than just one task. You have no idea how frustrating it’s been trying to decide on a line and which colors go together over the internet. You just took the guesswork out of the equation for me. Now, hopefully, I can grow right alongside of the party line. Whoo hoo!

  • Erm Sandberg January 10, 2017, 11:25 am

    This is so exciting. It has taken card making to a new level. Have had great success with the first colors and can’t wait to get the rest of the collection.

  • Cheryl Jones January 10, 2017, 11:32 am

    I just ordered all the new colors and some reinkers. My favorite color is Auqatini. Not even sure I spelled that right, but the color is great.

  • Casie W January 10, 2017, 11:43 am

    My favorite color is the black — so versatile! I love that you can use the inks as traditional dye inks, for embossing and watercoloring!

  • Fran Goldberg Weinberg January 10, 2017, 11:48 am

    I guess my fave color is Flirty Fushcia because of the name! I actually love ALL the party colors. What I like best about the inks is that I don’t have to guess what colors go together. You’ve made it so easy for us, Catherine. Thank you!

  • Amanda Rhodes January 10, 2017, 11:49 am

    I love flirty fuschia and that you can stamp over the different inks and they don’t run. I’m looking forward to the rest of the hop! :)

  • Janet Harrington January 10, 2017, 11:58 am

    Rocking Red is my favorite right now.

  • Preety January 10, 2017, 12:02 pm

    Loving the new inkpads! the colors are so vibrant and fun
    thanks for sharing the info. video, explained things really well :)

  • Colleen Pepper January 10, 2017, 12:05 pm

    I love these inks so much, and the new colors are gorgeous. You knocked it outta the park! Thank you for working so hard to get all of us quality products.

  • Susan Wareham January 10, 2017, 12:08 pm

    Would love to try your inks they look so juicy haven’t seen the lime one yet but that one could be my favorite.

  • Tammi Paolilli January 10, 2017, 12:09 pm

    Rocking red. So hard to find a good true red. I love that a love tap is all you need for full coverage.

  • Lois John January 10, 2017, 12:18 pm

    Since I am never able to leave a comment on Lisa Harrolle/s blog, I am leaving it here! Lisa I love all of your cards, but epecially the birthday one! I LOVE THE BORDER YOU MADE! Very original!!

  • Connie Newell January 10, 2017, 12:22 pm

    Love all your new inks. But Ive loved orange and yellow all my life, so if I need to pick one i guess it would have to be the yellowy orange, Tiki Torch color. I think these will be great to use and not have to worry about not getting good coverage.

  • Sue McRae January 10, 2017, 12:31 pm

    Love these vibrant and happy colors! My faves are Party Dress and Fiesta Blue and I like that there’s no ink transfer between colors. I know for some brands of ink I really have to do some hard core cleaning between ink colors.

  • Cynthia Johnson January 10, 2017, 12:35 pm

    Hi Catherine! My favorite color is Party Dress and my favorite thing about it is how easy it is to stamp beautifully. I hope you will come out with a pretty light pink sometime.

  • Sandy January 10, 2017, 12:39 pm

    Best colors ever

  • Teresa Cherka January 10, 2017, 12:44 pm

    I have the first 5 colors from the foundation box, my favorite colors are fiesta blue and grass skirt but I think Aquatini is a contender too . The colors and the ink consistency is like no others I have, fabulous! I am looking forward to completing my collection.

  • Jo Ann Lovell January 10, 2017, 12:49 pm

    I love all the colors of these inks but I think my favorite is Something Blue and Party Dress is right up there as another favorite. Thanks, Catherine, for having this dream and sharing it with all of us. So anxious to receive all the new colors in my mail and get started creating!

  • Maryann January 10, 2017, 12:58 pm

    I love all the colors, it’s hard to pick just one. I love the shape of the ink pads – easier to handle and big area for stamping. Thanks

  • MarciaC January 10, 2017, 1:04 pm

    These look great! Having just begun exploring inks I’m thinking my learning curve will be less. What to buy – what to buy – darn budget keeps getting in the way when I want them all!

  • Fran W January 10, 2017, 1:06 pm

    I knew you were going places when I first stumbled across your videos on Youtube 4 years ago. It has been great fun being along for the ride, and I look forward to my own fun when the rest of my rainbow arrives!! Thanks for being the best – you inspire, always.

  • Carol Hardie January 10, 2017, 1:07 pm

    Without a doubt ……. I can’t wait to use Party Dress. Love the Pink!! The Fiesta Blue from the Foundation Box is a favorite as well. I do like the foam pad but my favorite part is the shape of the ink pad. Easy to hold. Can’t wait to order more and get the ink refills of course.

  • Patti Blankenship January 10, 2017, 1:07 pm

    I just ordered all the new ink pads and refills as well as the refills for the Foundation colors. I believe my favorite color will be Aquatini. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I have been using the first 5 from the Foundations Box and love how easily they stamp because of the foam base. Thank you for the round block.

  • Linda Ford January 10, 2017, 1:07 pm

    Great card, I love the new ink colors

  • Marla Hofrichter January 10, 2017, 1:11 pm

    Purchased two Foundations boxes, one for my granddaughter for Christmas and kept one for my present. There was a learning curve to the inks, but they are FABULOUS once you get the hang. The new colors that you created are really going to bring some more fun to the “Party”. I’m so excited for my new party additions to arrive. Thank you Catherine!

  • Michelle Uhlenhake January 10, 2017, 1:18 pm

    Of course i needed all the colors. Thanks SO much for the free gift for stamp nation members!

  • Barbara S January 10, 2017, 1:21 pm

    I really like all the colors (I only have the foundation ones at the moment. I think Orange Twist is my favorite out of the originals. I’ve been looking for a good orange for a while and this fits the bill.

  • KatieP January 10, 2017, 1:49 pm

    The colors go great together! Love your creativity.

  • Tracy January 10, 2017, 1:59 pm

    Awesome, congrats on surviving the journey, it looks like it was worth it these colors are fantastic, can’t wait to try them.

  • Jeanne January 10, 2017, 2:01 pm

    I love the color “something borrowed something blue,” even though I named it “electric blue.” All the colors are gorgeous. When my inks are low, I will order them.

  • Carolyn Servais January 10, 2017, 2:02 pm

    I am really looking forward to trying out these ink pads. I have so many that are older than the hills and dried out. Need some new blood in my collection and hope that these will do the trick. Yes, I ordered some.

  • Becky Rohwer January 10, 2017, 2:09 pm

    Love all the colors and how juicy they are. Still getting used to the foam pad and light touch.

  • Ellen C. January 10, 2017, 2:09 pm

    My favorite would be Flirty Fuschia. I love, love, love, that solid images stamp so well with these inks.

  • Vickie Buehler January 10, 2017, 2:12 pm

    Congrats on your new ink line! These colors are gorgeous! Can not wait to be able to get the new colors, especially “tiara”!

  • Nina Houghton January 10, 2017, 2:19 pm

    I honestly don’t have a favorite color because they are all so rich and intense. My favorite feature is their crisp print. I am still amazed at how perfect and crisp the stamped images are!

  • Mary Ann C. January 10, 2017, 2:19 pm

    Its extremely difficult to pick only ONE favorite color — but I guess mine would be Aquatini…or maybe Tutti Frutti…no, I changed my mind, my favorite is Lime Rickey..or maybe Flirty Fuschia. I can’t pick only one! My favorite feature of these ink pads is being able to get a good image with just a tap-tap-tap — no more splotchy images!

  • Nicole January 10, 2017, 2:29 pm

    Flirty Fuchsia sounds about right… I love how vibrant the colors are.

  • June Sefscik January 10, 2017, 2:41 pm

    I love Fiesta Blue right now – and love how even these pads work with your stamps. Beautiful results. Just order the “rest of the party” and all the re-inkers. So much fun! Can’t wait to try the rest of the colors. Thanks Catherine for these great products

  • Donna Hawkins January 10, 2017, 2:46 pm

    I can’t pick just one color. I LOVE them all. But I love Aquatini and of course Flirty Fushia. I love that the colors go together so well. Can’t wait to get the new colors in m hands!

  • Marianne January 10, 2017, 2:58 pm

    The Rockin’ red ink looks like the perfect Christmas red, which would be a perfect addition to the reds I own. I’m particularly intrigued by the love tap feature with perfect stamping.

  • JanetB January 10, 2017, 3:11 pm

    I think your fun colors are beautiful, and I have been enjoying the whole pre-release hoopla. I don’t have a Facebook account, but sometimes see what is going on with my daughters account:) My cart is full of colors!!

  • Clare January 10, 2017, 3:30 pm

    Just ordered my ink pads! Super excited to get the rainbow complete love the ones I have so far.

    I love the fact that there are several shades of the same color
    available. Blue is my favorite color at any time but the red
    almost wipes them out of contention. Fantastic colors.
    thanks for sharing.

  • Priscilla Steele January 10, 2017, 3:44 pm

    Looking forward to using Tiara… I was so pleased with the Foundations box especially the Midnight pad. Absolutely a must in any stampers collection. I found the ink pads easy to use since you were very clear on the best way to ink up the stamps. Thank you and so very happy for you!!!

  • Debbie S McPherson January 10, 2017, 3:45 pm

    I LOVE the color coordination of the stamps! Can’t wait to try some! yahoo!

  • Tristan January 10, 2017, 3:49 pm

    I lurve lime rickey and tiki torch

  • MARLENE KLING January 10, 2017, 3:54 pm

    These inks look FABULOUS!!! I have a birthday coming up soon…guess what I want for my birthday? I am 84 yrs. old and so enjoy card making and would love to have your inks on hand. TFS and good luck in your new endeavor.

  • Kelly January 10, 2017, 3:59 pm

    LOVE these inks. I have the foundations box and will get the new colors. they are so fun and VIBRANT and stamp beautifully!

  • Marianne January 10, 2017, 4:24 pm

    As always, I was unable to leave a comment on Lisa’s blog, since you need to have a Google+ account to do so. I was also unable to leave a comment on Melissa’s blog. First, I was taken for a spammer and then commenting was disabled. Loved the hop, though. Your new inks wowed me with their vibrant colours and crisp stamping, including the black ink.

  • Brenda B. January 10, 2017, 4:26 pm

    My favorite color is lime rickey. I love the foam base on these inks. You don’t have to press hard with your stamps and never end up with those stringy bits of felt like I get on some of my other pads.

  • Karen Roberts January 10, 2017, 4:31 pm

    I love Grass Skirt from the Foundation box and if the color stamps as pretty as the lid, Something Borrowed will be a favorite. Thank you, Catherine

  • Laurie Sherwin January 10, 2017, 4:43 pm

    Love love the tutti fruiti, bought tutti fruiti, aquatini and tiara.Love the love tap and sat colors

  • Laura Miller January 10, 2017, 4:51 pm

    Love your colors. I’m still getting used to the ink saturated pad from my foundations box. Now need the other 8 colors!

  • Shelley Flaherty January 10, 2017, 5:18 pm

    These inks are wonderful. I just received the foundations box and I have enjoyed playing. I am looking forward to the rest of the “party”! I think my favorite color is the Flirty Fuchsia, but they are all beautiful. The colors are so rich and full. BTW more purple is always welcome! :)

  • Chrystyna B. January 10, 2017, 5:24 pm

    Love all the colors you created! They are vibrant and fun to play with. Looking forward to playing with the new colors.

  • susan.w January 10, 2017, 5:38 pm

    Hi, CP! Congratulations for another successful product launch. Well done! My favourite colour looks to be Flirty Fuchsia. Looking eagerly to the day they are all delivered. The single feature that I am looking forward to when my inks arrive is NO MORE SPLOTCHY IMAGES. Fabulous and informative video, once again. You’re the best, CP! Thanks for spoiling us on StampNation.

  • Jodi January 10, 2017, 5:56 pm

    These inks are AMAZING! & I love the party colors and can’t wait to play with them

  • Caroline Bredeson January 10, 2017, 5:58 pm

    Such a cheerful, festive collection of colours! They are bringing a breeze of summer to this chilly winter.
    Thanks for the informative video on the qualities and uses for these inks. It is great that they can be used for heat embossing.

  • Caroline Bredeson January 10, 2017, 5:59 pm

    Oops! Forgot to list my favorite colour–I will have to wait to see them “in the flesh” but either Tiki Torch or Tutti Fruiti. Love the orange shades!

  • Marcia Fellner January 10, 2017, 6:01 pm

    Just ordered all the ink pads and reinkers. Hoping the snow doesn’t slow down delivery too much. Something Borrowed is my favorite so far…. I love that the colors are so vivid and that they all go together.

  • Andrea January 10, 2017, 6:04 pm

    I love your selection of colors. I love love Orange Twist. I am in love with Fall colors! The Tiki Torch will make some awesome cards. But these colors are awesome for Summer flowers also.

  • Denise January 10, 2017, 6:08 pm

    My fav color is aquatini and I love the intense color that stamps so nicely.

  • Diana January 10, 2017, 6:14 pm

    I love the look of this card. Especially the glitter used – it is really a WOW!

  • Lee January 10, 2017, 6:27 pm

    Congratulations on your new ink launch! I love, love, love the colors & how well they go together! Enjoyed the blog hop, too. Thank you for all your effort & a great product. I have the first release of colors from the foundation box & I really enjoy using them. I’m off to the online store to get some more of that goodness!

  • Teena Schaefer January 10, 2017, 6:29 pm

    Beautiful inks! Congratulations!

  • Annie A. January 10, 2017, 6:42 pm

    I ordered the “rest of the party” today and can’t wait. It’s hard to pick a fave but I would say Party Dress will probably get the most stamping time! Thanks for such great quality, Catherine, and here-here to Big Dreams!

  • Kitty T January 10, 2017, 6:44 pm

    I am in love with Flirty Fuchsia!! Purple is my signature color, and YOU pretty lady, have outdone yourself with these new inks. Can’t wait to test out the foam pads!

  • Sabrina Radican January 10, 2017, 6:45 pm

    Gorgeous inks colors!!

  • Sherry Lowmaster January 10, 2017, 7:04 pm

    beautiful colors! congrats on a job well done!

  • Grammajoni January 10, 2017, 7:11 pm

    I love all the yumminess of these inks but my favorite is the ease pf removing and replacing the lids.

  • Crystal January 10, 2017, 7:15 pm

    I love Rockin’ Red and the fact that the ink gives full coverage…who could ask for more than a outrageous red that stamps beautifully?!

  • Joyce M January 10, 2017, 7:21 pm

    I have been loving the inks I got in the foundations box and can’t wait to get more. How could I possibly pick a favorite???? I’m most interested in the Tiara since I don’t think I have ever had a yellow I liked!

  • Elena Chamberlain January 10, 2017, 7:23 pm

    Can’t wait to try these. My Tim Holtz’ stamp pads are wearing out and I was just starting to look around for pads that I can watercolor with.

  • NatQuebec January 10, 2017, 7:26 pm

    Such beautiful inks !! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Robin L. Coxon January 10, 2017, 7:27 pm

    Thank you for providing information about the new colors offered now. They are certainly quite and assortment to choose from.

  • Gretchen Harold January 10, 2017, 7:46 pm

    Catherine, I love all the colors but my most favorite is Tiara. I am a Yellow girl, and I cant believe how much I like this one. I want to paint my kitchen this color. I love the foam pad!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Theresa Robinson January 10, 2017, 7:49 pm

    Love them all but would say Party Dress and Something Borrowed as 2 favorites. Can’t wait to get my order!

  • Robin January 10, 2017, 7:50 pm

    Party Dress is probably my favorite color but Flirty Fushcia is a close second. My favorite thing about the ink pads is how easily they ink up the stamps.

  • Lisa stankiewicz January 10, 2017, 7:50 pm

    Ordered bundle today! Woot woot!

  • June Ramsamy January 10, 2017, 7:53 pm

    Beautiful vibrant colours, absolutely love the stamp. . . Love, love and love !

  • Sheilla Bailey January 10, 2017, 8:00 pm

    Just discovered you. I am excited to follow you. I love your cards. Thanks for the download of the guides for the 10 cards.

  • Christy Borfitz January 10, 2017, 8:37 pm

    I just love the rich vibrant colors of these inks, Catherine!

  • Janet Ingraham January 10, 2017, 8:39 pm

    I’m very intrigued by your new ink pads. All the info I’ve read and the designers tips make them very appealing.

  • Bonnie Sanche January 10, 2017, 9:13 pm

    Can’t wait for Flirty Fuschia!

  • Diane M Sinclair January 10, 2017, 9:20 pm

    I love the vibrant colors and how the ink is so easy to use. My favorite color is Orange Twist.

  • Vicenta Ghylin January 10, 2017, 9:24 pm

    Congratulations on the new ink collection. Really like all the colors but my favorite is Flirty Fuchsia and the Lime Rickey. Thank you for making the video.

  • Sherry January 10, 2017, 9:37 pm

    I love all the colors!, but my new favorite is Lime Rickey… followed by Tiki Torch, and then Flirty Fuchsia. So hard to choose.

    I love how vibrant the colors are and how crisp they stamp!

  • Kathy Doyle January 10, 2017, 9:38 pm

    Placed my ink order today (at work on my phone, shhh!) and can’t wait for them to arrive so I can start playing and creating with all the fun colors. Love the first five colors that I received in the Foundations box! I love how solid they stamp with one stamp (won’t need my Misti with these inks)! Great job Catherine on the new inks!

  • Lindsey L January 10, 2017, 9:39 pm

    Yay!! I don’t think I can pick a favorite, but I’m a blue kinda gal, so maybe Something Borrowed or Aquatini. I just love the vibrance of these inks and the coverage is amazing!

  • Meg Connell January 10, 2017, 9:47 pm

    I can’t take the stress ……. choosing just ONE colour! Far out Catherine! Lol
    If I absolutely HAVE to pick I will say Flirty Rickey or Lime Fuchsia because I can’t decide!
    As far as the best feature: it’s the juiciness, which makes them cover so well, once you learn how to handle them and not look like a rainbow yourself!

  • sharon January 10, 2017, 10:12 pm

    Can’t choose a favorite color; their names are ALL so yummy! Love the foam pad and the non-permanent feature of such beautiful colors! Can’t wait to have them all!

  • chark January 10, 2017, 10:33 pm

    the flirty fuchsia is my fave!

  • Maureen Peterson January 10, 2017, 10:35 pm

    You Rock!! These colors are just to die for!! So beautiful!! Ordered the new 8 today and the re-inkersfor the foundation box. Need to wait until next moth for the rest or month after. The Stamp Nation Box is next month, you know, so I can’t miss
    that. I will miss your daily Facebook live posts!! I sucked at guessing the color names but it was so fun to watch all the color reveals!! Ok get working on the next set of colors!! You are awesome!!

  • Dorothy Breitenstein January 10, 2017, 10:35 pm

    Love all the colors. Can’t wait to get the rest of mine.

  • Brenda Jaques January 10, 2017, 10:45 pm

    Catherine, I love the Flirty Fushia, I’ve bought several purples trying to find the right shade, and this one appears to be it! I love how well these inks, ink. The Midnight Black has become my favorite black because it inks so well the first time! Love these ink pads. They did not disappoint! I was so excited about them that I took them to work and shared, and my friend liked them as well. Great Job!

  • Melissa Friedrich January 10, 2017, 10:49 pm

    LOVE these vibrant colors, Aquatini is my favorite … today! I love the shape of these pads, not too big so they fit nicely in your hand and the oval ends are narrow enough to use for small areas you want to stamp.

  • Orla January 10, 2017, 10:49 pm

    Decisions! Decisions! They’re all such great colors! However, if I can only pick one, I’ll have to say Flirty Fuchsia is my favorite of all. It will be a regular go-to for me. :)

  • Trina Chaska January 10, 2017, 11:08 pm

    Beautiful colors. I think Aquatini is my favorite for now. It might change when I get mine. I have them ordered.

  • Kathy Doyle January 10, 2017, 11:13 pm

    Just had to come back and comment again after going through all the blogs. Thanks Catherine, and to all of your Amazing Design team members for all the great cards and ideas that you all come up with! Truly a great team of stampers!
    I know I am going to love the whole Party Collection! I can’t wait for my order to arrive!

  • Barbara Brennan January 10, 2017, 11:18 pm

    The vibrancy of this color collection makes my eyes sparkle with delight! I’d choose LIME RICKEY and TIARA as my two favs…..BUT LOVE Love love the all!

  • Paula Wolfe January 10, 2017, 11:27 pm

    I can’t wait to try out the new colors. I love the foundations box I received.

  • Kirsty Vittetoe January 10, 2017, 11:27 pm

    I am a pinky girl, so party dress is the one for me, I think ink pad in this shape is the perfect kind for stamping. Congrats on this release!

  • Dawn T January 10, 2017, 11:44 pm

    Stunning colours. I have the Foundation Box and have used the inks for blending and am so impressed. Way to go Catherine!

  • CraftyLawyer January 10, 2017, 11:48 pm

    I love the blues! And I love how solid images stamp. Not splotchy at all on the first try! Makes stamping sooooo much faster!

  • Hsin-Yi January 11, 2017, 12:13 am

    I am new to stamping world, so I am still learning a lot on color medium. I have been using color pencils and markers, hopefully will learn some watercoloring in the future. Congratulations on releasing your new ink pads, Catherine! The colors are so vibrant and beautiful. Aquatini is my favorite color. I think my 5-year-old son would also have fun using these ink pads to do his stampings (he loves to do stamping and coloring with me!). Just need to plan and save so I can get them soon!

  • Melodie Isreal January 11, 2017, 12:29 am

    As much as I love all the colors I think the tutti frutti is going to be an all time favorite!

  • Claudia M. January 11, 2017, 12:34 am

    I love the colors, they are truly vibrant. And the names are so creative.

  • Christy Q January 11, 2017, 7:01 am

    inks that don’t splotch up and have even stamping?! I love that about your ink pad collection. Plus, the names are pretty cute too!!! :)

  • Christy Q January 11, 2017, 7:03 am

    inks that don’t splotch up and have even stamping?! I love that about your ink pad collection. Plus, the names are pretty cute too!!! :) I love Grass Skirt (big fan of green here!). :) Plus, Aquatini is just too cute too!

  • Nandini Karmarkar January 11, 2017, 7:26 am

    Love the new ink colors. They are absolutely gorgeous. My favorite is the Lime Rickey and I really like the idea of foam pads because I always have a problem inking my stamps evenly. Especially background stamps.

  • Dee Earnshaw January 11, 2017, 8:15 am

    Awesome – love blog hops:)

  • Joyce Spear January 11, 2017, 8:16 am

    My favorite color? Hands down, Flirty Fuchsia! I mean… being the purple gal I am, how could I pick any other color? (although the rest are great, too). My favorite feature is how the colors coordinate with each other, no second-guessing myself. The vibrancy of the colors in the Party Collection is outstanding!

  • Nicole Fabbri January 11, 2017, 9:32 am

    Love the new colors!!! So happy you put out the inkers!!!! Rockin’ Red is my favorite this is one of the reason I am so happy about the inks because I have already used it up!!!!

  • Flo January 11, 2017, 10:24 am

    Your stamp pads look great, the colors vibrant. I’ll have to give them a try.

  • Tricia Adamcy Anderson January 11, 2017, 10:58 am

    In love – these are amazing !!

  • Laurie January 11, 2017, 12:46 pm

    Oops..didn’t read the instructions. Umm. I have a three way tie. My favorites are the flirty fuchsia, aquatini, and the fiesta blue. I am excited to see how the red comes out. I have been on the look out for a true red. Love the vibrant colors!!

  • Andrea A January 11, 2017, 2:26 pm

    These inks are beautiful, bold and brilliant and appear to have a lot of versatility! I can’t wait to get some!

  • Vivian M. January 11, 2017, 3:34 pm

    Yay! We can order them! How to pick a favorite…I think for today( it might change tomorrow!) my favorite is Flirty Fushia. As for the feature of the ink pad, I like that it only takes light taps to ink the stamp. I still, however, get ink everywhere!

  • Vicki Smith January 11, 2017, 6:57 pm

    I don’t have any of the new inks but I LOVE all of the colors (can’t pick a favorite). Looking forward to the blog hop…

  • Andrea Dulaney January 11, 2017, 8:11 pm

    I can’t wait to get the other colors. I love what you did with them to make your own glitter paper. Love it!

  • Susan Chessa January 11, 2017, 8:15 pm

    I love the new colors and can’t wait for my order to arrive!

  • Kris January 11, 2017, 9:34 pm

    My favorite color is fiesta blue. I love the vibrancy and the foam pad for easy inking.

  • Carol January 11, 2017, 11:09 pm

    The colors are way too beautiful. Even when stamped off once. Good job girl.

  • Cecelia Castro January 11, 2017, 11:25 pm

    My favorite color us the aquatini

  • Norma January 11, 2017, 11:38 pm

    I love that you don’t splotchy spots!

  • Suna Stirk January 12, 2017, 12:06 am

    I am so excited! I loved the first ink pads that came in the foundations box and can’t wait to get the rest.

  • Kris in Alaska January 12, 2017, 12:08 am

    “Something Borrowed” is my fav color but they are all super!

  • Brenda H. January 12, 2017, 12:14 am

    Ooohh …. Awww….love all the colors (and names)… Can’t choose! Must have ALL!

  • Nancy-Anne Rockwell January 12, 2017, 1:07 am

    Can’t wait to add them to my foundation box colours!!

  • aida January 12, 2017, 1:20 am

I can’t wait to receive my last eight colors and the re-fillers. And then to (impatiently ☺) wait for your next SOA Collection in February!

  • Theresa January 12, 2017, 4:02 am

    Just got my Foundations box with the new inks! I love them. I can’t wait to get the new colors.

  • Susan Crook January 12, 2017, 6:35 am

    I love the inks. The tap, tap works perfectly for me. The colours are so vibrant. My favourite is fiesta blue.


  • Cecelia Castro January 12, 2017, 7:26 am

    I love the new colors of ink. Aquatini is my favorite from the videos.

  • Deana Benson January 12, 2017, 7:29 am

    Even though I have the first 5 I am SUPER excited to get the rest out of my mailbox!!

    Love the Rockin’ Red and the oval shape of the pads!

  • Jeanette Vernon January 12, 2017, 11:07 am

  • Althea January 12, 2017, 11:45 am

    Congratulations! Beautiful ink colors.
    Just a big thanks for putting your “leave a comment” section at the beginning. :)

  • Linda Gorun January 12, 2017, 11:57 am

    Aquatini is the best! (But am looking forward to trying out the rest!). Great job with color choices and presentations.

  • Erin C. January 12, 2017, 12:56 pm

    Wohoo! Thank you so much for all the different ways to purchase!!! I’m partial to Aquatini, but I love all of the colors!! My favorite thing about these inks is really 2 things: I love how solid I can get an image to be & I love the no transfer aspect. ☺

  • June Ramsamy January 12, 2017, 12:57 pm

    Great inks and colours, can’t wait to try these out.

  • Sher Huss January 12, 2017, 2:01 pm

    I love these inks and how you demonstrated their use. I can’t wait to see what is next. You are so inspiring – thanks for sharing with all of us.

  • FeM January 12, 2017, 3:48 pm

    I like the blues and the foam type pad.

  • Clare Nemeth January 12, 2017, 5:57 pm

    I think so far Orange Twist and Fiesta Blue are my favorites. So far I only have the Foundation Box colors so my opinion may change when I get the other luscious colors on my work table. Congrats again on your new line Catherine!!!

  • Wanda Lee January 12, 2017, 8:26 pm

    Love your page and looking forward to using your products.

  • Flo January 14, 2017, 8:25 pm

    I’m having a hard time picking between aquatint and party dress. Great colors and they look like they stamp really nice.

  • Amanda January 15, 2017, 5:48 am

    Aquatini….just beautiful. Love the blending abilities

  • Susan Powell January 15, 2017, 10:19 pm

    Hi Catherine – congratulations are your new ink line. I haven’t ordered my inks YET but am definitely planning to. From the pics I’d have to say my favs are aquatini, fiesta blue and lime ricky.

  • Deborah L Cieply January 18, 2017, 2:14 am

    I like them all but I think the Flirty Fuchsia is pulling on my heart strings the most. I love the solid image it looks like you get with these inks.
