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.

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.

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. 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.

Color Made Easy

The Catherine Pooler Designs Ink Collection "Color Made Easy" system takes the guesswork out of choosing colors for your card making projects. Choose your color palette from the Party Collection or Spa Collection for perfect coordination!

The Party Inks are vibrant, saturated colors....think lime green and bright pink. With names like Fiesta Blue and Rockin' Red, they are bright, fun and they scream party!

The Spa Inks are sophisticated colors with low saturation levels. With names like Mandarin Spice and Shea Butter, they are perfect for a polished card design.

You will always feel successful when choosing color palettes within the families as they all mix and match perfectly!
