I'm sorry, did you think I was talking about the Sangria beverage? Nope I'm talking about something better!
Catherine Pooler Designs has a 4 new ink colors that she's revealing this week and the first one is Sangria. Early this year CP introduced the first four ink colors in the Urban Oasis Collection. These colors are muted, sophisticated tones and are absolutely gorgeous! Now she's ready to complete this collection. Are you? They'll be in the shop October 30th!
If you already know about her inks then you probably love them as much as I do but if you don't then let me tell you a little about them -
- they are made with a foam pad which helps to get you full coverage every time you stamp.
-you can easily go from ink color to ink color - just be sure to stamp off the ink on a scratch pad or cloth between colors and it won't transfer.
- the inks stay wet long enough that if you wanted to add embossing powder you could
- they blend beautifully - if you struggle with ink blending you might want to try these inks.
AND MY FAVORITE
- her inks react with water so yup, water coloring is possible, or adding the ever popular water spots on a card is easy to do.

I have three different colors on my card - or do I?
First I cut the large frame from the Chalkboard Frames Dies and used the center piece to stamp on. I used the new Sangria ink color - inked up one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Notes Stamp Set and stamped it 3x without inking it up again - I love the three shades that I got from one ink pad! This is a great way to get more colors from your inks and is awesome for layering stamps. I stamped the small thanks in Midnight ink in the center of each butterfly - simple and effective. I used a blending tool to add color to the frame. If you're wondering why it looks 'blotchy' (my husbands question too), it's because I didn't want it to be a solid color - I wanted different shades just like the butterflies.
I added the frame directly to the card base and then added the panel with craft foam for dimension.
I think I'm going to make sets of these using different inks - would make a nice little gift for someone.
and thanks SO MUCH for visiting!
