Hello everyone. I have the great pleasure of sharing with you some NEW inks from Catherine Pooler Designs. I have the four new Beach Retreat Inks that are being added to the Spa Collection of dye inks from Catherine Pooler Designs.


To check out more from Catherine Pooler Designs (CLICK HERE!) and visit their website and see everything they have to offer including these incredible inks.


I had a little photo shoot with the ink pads and the ink swatches I made using Canva. I used ink daubers to blend on the ink for these swatches which is new to my ink swatch book, but I think having this type of swatch will be helpful when looking at the ink color. This allows me to see the variation of color I can get from just this one ink coIor. I am a big fan of ink blending and these inks look fabulous ink blended so I can see myself using this resource quite a bit.


I am a sucker for beach themed anything. I love making beach cards!

Here is a look at Sea Glass and Bay Breeze which are in the blue green color family. I absolutely adore Sea Glass. This color is going to get used in my craft room for sure. Bay Breeze is a bit deeper and also a gorgeous color I'm happy to add to my collection.

I think if I had to choose a favorite of the four inks, I would have to choose Tranquil. I love using light inks and this light blue just hits all the right spots for me. I love this tone of Blue. The Cove Blue which is deeper is absolutely beautiful.


You may think that my favorite color is gray, and it might be, but technically it's not a color. So my answer to what my favorite color is, is always blue. I love blue. If you check out my instagram grid you can totally tell that blue is one of my favorites and this denim like tone is where it's at.

Here is a look at Tranquil and Cove Blue next to each other.


I love how these inks fall in line with the existing collection. If I was a better blogger I might have taken some pictures of how they compare but I don't currently own the entire collection, so I couldn't give you a good look at the rest of the ink colors, but you can totally get the information from the Catherine Pooler Designs website.

Catherine’s dye ink formula in my opinion is one of the best out there. You can stamp solid images with ease, ink-blend a beautiful background (I mean look at that Tranquil swatch! It’s gorgeous!), and even watercolor with them.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you got a good look at the NEW Catherine Pooler Beach Retreat Inks. If not you can find more information over at Catherine Pooler Designs.


I hope I've inspired you to create something today,
