CP Designs Ink - Party Collection Blog Hop

Heellllloooo! Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!!!

I know it's been a while, way too long for sure.  I started a new job and moved all between October and December.  It's been a hectic, crazy, stressful time but we made it and I'm ready to get back to stamping.


I couldn't think of a better time to return to stamping and blogging than for my dear friend Catherine's new Ink release!!!!  Back in October she released the first 5 colors in the Foundations Box.  Today 8 new colors are available, as well as the first 5!!  How exciting?!!!!!

Today myself and some of my favorite designers are hopping along showing off these fabulous inks.


I haven't stamped in over 4 months, so I wasn't really sure how this was going to go!  I decided to use my favorite go-to floral stamp set, Eva's Favorite Flowers because that set never lets me down :)  Believe me, these are different from any other ink pads you've tried.  There is a bit of a learning curve with them though, so head on over to this video where Catherine walks you through how to use them!

These colors scream party, hence the name, "Party Collection".  They are fun and bright, I couldn't help but to keep stamping.  It's like a big floral party is going on on my card :)  Here you are seeing Party Dress, Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt and Midnight.  


Before you leave, just take a minute to admire the stamped images, sigh... This ink makes the most crisp impressions.  It amazes me every-single-time!


It's time to start hopping along now.  Leave comments on each blog to be entered to win one of two- $25 Girt Certificates to Catherine Pooler's store!!

Maureen Merritt - {You are Here!}

Now go add those inks to your shopping cart!!!  shop.catherinepooler.com.
