CP Ink Party Collection Release Blog Hop

I am so excited to share a boatload of projects created with the NEW inks just released by Catherine Pooler Designs! I couldn't be more pleased with how these inks stamp, and now that there are more colors, it's really a no-brainer. Once you try them you'll see why. The coverage is AMAZINGLY solid. Every time I sit down to stamp I happily reach for my new go-to inks.

Shall we take a look? Let's start with my favorite!



How can you resist a rainbow of butterflies? I know, right?! I thought I was using every one of Catherine's ink colors, but after typing up the supply list I realized that I missed Tiki Torch, which would belong right between Orange Twist and the yellow Tiara. Darn it! They fit so perfectly around the circle I drew too.
 


The "Hello" sentiment is amazingly not from the Butterfly Notes set, but from Hello World. It's a perfect match to the butterflies though, with the tiny white dots along the H to match the tiny white dots in the butterfly, and the curl at the end of the O to match the curl at the end of the butterfly's antenna.


  
To add a little surprise element to the card, I cut out a circle of yellow foam to mount under the main sentiment panel. From the front you don't notice it, but once you look at it from the side it's a happy surprise.
    


This card is such a winner for me. It's simple, but the "Hello" is strong enough to carry the card. Although it took me awhile to play around with the elements (something that's often forgotten about when looking at CAS cards, they can take longer to put together because the design is so prominent) it was a snap to duplicate.
 
 
So I made a few more while I had the stamps lined up on my MISTI.
           


And then I made a few more! I timed the last one I made ... ONE MINUTE FLAT. You really can't beat that for mass producing cards. What a great set this would make to give someone.
     
   
You can also line it with patterned paper to jazz it up a bit, while keeping the front CAS. Stamps used on this one include Hello World and Amazing Floral.
    
  
This card shows off just how vibrant the new Catherine Pooler inks are. Crazy, crazy good!! I stamped with the backs of two different circles from Spot On, and a combined sentiment from Still Smiling and Amazing Floral. The bird nest of white thread is my nod to Laura Bassen, who as I'm sure you know, loves stamping in rainbow colors. You really can't go wrong with rainbows, and these inks are just the ticket.

If you're a member of Stamp Nation, you won't want to miss the Birthday Bash going on over there. Even if you're not a member, there is grand prize up for grabs for those who comment on all the stops in this blog hop. Catherine will announce the winner on her blog.

Next on your stop is Maureen Merritt,who is back from a slight hiatus. We are so happy to have her back creating! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Hi Rebecca! I got pretty lucky and the butterflies fit around my circle on the second try! I had to draw a slightly larger circle the second time. If you'd like to recreate it, the circle is 2 7/8". Thanks! Kelly

  30. I love the rainbow butterflies, the hello card is very pretty, I love clean and simple, mine always get out of control and end up not so simple, therefore no longer clean. But, my favorite is the last one, while these inks have shown us in the blog hop how vibrant and bright they are, this card shows an earthy tone feel, showing just how versatile they are. I was debating if I should just get the aqua and Flirty Fuchsia because they are my favorites, but now I see I need them all. Fantastic job ty.

  137. Beautiful cards. I love the rainbow of butterflies!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. These cards are great, Kelly, but the butterfly one really knocked my socks off! I have yet to figure out how to determine how big of a circle is needed when I want to stamp an image around it. I'm allergic to math, so I either do it by trial and error or I don't do it at all -- more often the latter, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Great cards! Really like the rainbow buttery card. Really cool idea :) The other two cards are awesome too!! Love these colors!! :)
