Ink

All about the ink
As a stamper myself, I dreamed of solid and true colors that popped on my paper as well as color coordination that is a snap. We tested and played with different ink formulations to make sure it could meet all the challenges...and Catherine Pooler ink was born!  We arrived at an ink formula that was multi-purpose, achieving results previously requiring multiple or specialty products.

What makes our ink special?
Color made easy

Color made easy

CP Inks collections are formulated to help crafters easily create perfectly coordinated projects with matching saturations and tones.

Embossing Powder

Solid, Smooth Images

With our foam pads, two or three LOVE TAPS are all you need to get full coverage on your stamp that transfers beautifully to your paper.

Free of Color Transfers

Free of Color Transfers

You can feel safe stamping light colors after dark colors. If your stamp stamps clean on scratch paper, then no color will transfer!

Water reactive 

Water Reactive

CP Inks are dye based and they react with water, which makes them great for ever-popular water splotching and flicking techniques.

Color made easy

Blending is easy

CP Inks stay wet for a few seconds, so you have time to ink blend beautiful backgrounds with your colored ink pads.

Embossing Powder

Use Embossing Powders

CP Inks do not dry immediately so you have a few seconds to sprinkle on some embossing powder, making these inks work as colored embossing ink!


How to use & care for your inks

Stamping Best Practices
Catherine Pooler ink works best with just a little love tap. Foam pads release ink very easily, so experiment and play with them to get used to this amazing pad.
Premium Dye Vs. Archival
All of our inks are non-permanent premium dye inks, except for Midnight. Midnight is an archival ink, which is permanent and safe to use with watercolors and alcohol ink markers. Midnight will stain your stamps, so be careful not to press too hard with them.
Ink Refills
Since these foam pads transfer ink so well, we recommend purchasing ink refills so you're never caught with a dry pad.
