Welcome Catherine Pooler Inks to The Doodlebug!

I've tried MANY inks over the years and I have NEVER found a stamping ink that I LOVE this much!!!  

Catherine Pooler Inks will be a new line that we will be brining into the store and we just know that youwill love them SO MUCH, we wanted to give you an opportunity to pre-order them!!

What Makes These Inks Different?
Color Made Easy!
My Ink Collections are formulated to help crafters easily create perfectly coordinated projects with matching saturations and tones.
The Party Line of inks are vibrant, saturated colors….think lime and bright pink.  With names like Fiesta Blue and Rockin’ Red, they are bright, fun and they scream party!
The Spa Line of inks are muted colors with a low saturation
level.  With names like Mandarin Spice and Shea Butter, they are perfect for a sophisticated and polished card design.

Besides the foolproof Color Made Easy system…
  • Color coordination is a snap!  Our first collection, the Party Collection is made up of all vibrant, saturated colors that will go together perfectly.  No more guessing which color goes with which!
  • No more splotchy images!  Two or three gentle LOVE TAPS are all you need to get full coverage on your stamp which transfers beautifully to your cardstock.
  • No more muddy, dirty stamped images when residue from a dark ink gets picked up by a light color!
  • They are water reactive which makes them great for ever popular water splotching and flicking techniques.
  • Blending is easy!  These inks stay wet for a few seconds, so you have time to blend beautiful backgrounds with your colored ink pads.

CP Designs Ink Pads are made of foam and foam pads transfer ink better to stamps.  A well inked stamp produces a better quality image.
All inks are premium dye inks and they are all non-permanent except for Midnight which is archival (and will stain your stamps – be sure to view the best practices video!).  Midnight is water-proof and safe for alcohol markers when dry.

Common Questions:
Q:  Do you store them upside down or right side up?

A:  It is not necessary to store them upside down.  So right side up it is!
Q:  I have some foam ink pads that have disintegrated.  How will yours hold up?
A: The shelf life of our dye ink pads is at least 2 years, but they could last much longer with good care and storage.  We recommend storing them at close to room temperature (no extremes) and out of direct sunlight.  We also recommend that if you use stamp cleaners other than water that you also clean them with water to remove any residue that might be clinging to you stamp.
Q: I just wanted to know how the inks behave when using a brand new, not yet seasoned stamp?
A:  They will work great!  If you do get any splotchiness at all, just ink and stamp several times on scratch paper and you should be good to go!
Q: Can’t wait to try your new ink pads! They sound so versatile. But I’m curious how well the sponge base will hold up if I get over anxious and stamp down too hard.
A:  The pad itself will be fine, but you may find a bit of an inky mess!  You will also find that linen pads will get a dip in the middle after use, but foam pads do not tend to do that.  Do be gentle with your pad, though, since it’s foam if you are rough with them, they may tear.
