CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection

There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.


Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!!
These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.


Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook and they will go up for sale with a few new product in the Catherine Pooler Shop on Tuesday November 14.

Thanks for stopping by to see today's post and see you soon!!

Calling All Sistahs

Hi! It is October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The CAS-ual Fridays Blog has been turned pink this month and there have been so many projects shown to help spread awareness. 
Today is the 17th and it is time for your monthly reminder to do your self-breast examination and also to schedule your yearly mammogram if you are due for it.
This month has flown by so quickly and my brain has been on overdrive, so I went back to basics for this month's reminder card. I used some of my rarely used patterned paper from my stash.  I chose papers with the same pattern but different colors for my card. I cut the Ruffled Ribbon out of the darker of the two papers and layered 4 layers of white cardstock and one of patterned paper to make the ribbon dimensional. The lighter of the papers I used as a base layer on a black A2 top fold card. I kept the card clean and simple by matching the patterns and using a single black on white sentiment on a base of black and a few sequins from the Sistahood Sparkle sequin mix.


I hope you come on over to the Calling All Sistahs Blog and see what the rest of the team have created this month.
See you tomorrow for this month's Encouragement Challenge.
