I have put them through their paces extensively and had the exciting opportunity to demo them at the Spectrum Noir Booth at Creativation this year in Phoenix Arizona are coloured in the beautiful LDRS stamp (also coming here soon!)
I have a limited number arriving today with more following soon 🙂
A little about these markers:
Essentials Collection includes 24 pens (3 colors each pen)
New Tri-Blend markers offer the ultimate blending solution with 3 shades of color: light, medium & dark.
Perfect for the crafter or colorist who wants to improve their ability.
The Tri-Blend marker has a unique 3-in-1 design. It houses three ink chambers, each delivering separate color through a fine bullet nib.
This enables us to effectively offer a ‘blend in a marker’. The concept immediately becomes accessible and will eventually drive hobbyists to core range.
*** Make sure you also pick up a pack of Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth meant for Alcohol Markers, it is essential to use the correct paper for your colouring medium.
The Foilpress by Crafter’s Companion is on it’s way to Canada!

The Gemini FOILPRESS delivers professional-looking foiling results using a hot press technique that ensures crisp, clean images every time. Perfect for stationery, invites, party decorations, home decor, gifts, and so much more. The FOILPRESS works perfectly with a multitude of materials. The size of the Foiling Platform is 7×5

Here is a quick written tutorial on how to make an oversized Box Card since I have had quite a few requests 🙂
1 – Cut two pieces of heavyweight cardstock to 24cm x 21cm
2 – Laying the card horizontally score top to bottom at 10cm and 20 cm, leaving a 4cm edge
3 – Rotate the card and score the length of the card at 10cm.
4 – At the 10cm, and 20cm score line, cut down to the score line in the middle of the card, repeat on the second piece of card.
5 – Cut off the 10cm x 4 cm take at the edge of each piece of card.
6 – Choose your Paper for the panels and cut four stars that are 9.5cm x 9.5cm
7 – Glue the paper to the 10cm square card panels Using Crafter’s Companion Tape Runner, repeat on both pieces of card.
8 – Fold along the score lines, add glue to the small panel and glue together the two pieces of card.
9 – Cut two bridges out of card stock that are 14cm x 3cm and score at 2cm and 12cm on each.
10 – Fold along the score lines and glue to the inside of the card as pictured.
11 – Choose what you would like to fill the box card and attach acetate strips using Gel Super Glue.
For the Snowflake Card I have used products from Crafter’s Companion that will be launching on HSN on August 15th, The snowflakes are cut using the Sparking Snowflake add on dies (for the Dimensional Dies Bundle), the Paper on the Panels is from the 12″ x 12″ Decorative Christmas Paper Pad, the Glitter card from the Luxury cardstock packs.
I am SOOOOO excited about these products because they are AMAZING!!! These are so fun and easy to use, grab these, some watercolour paper and you are set! They work brilliantly with stamps, embossing, sparkle pens, there are just so many techniques!
I have been wanting to use these two Catherine Pooler Stamp Sets since they arrived in my shop, but I had some projects on the go that needed to be finished first, so the moment they were done today I grabbed the Doin’ The Polka Background Stamp and the Grateful Heart Stamp Set. I had totally planned to colour in these flowers but loved the look as it was so I just added a little sparkle instead with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay
Cut your piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock (or Catherine Pooler Smooth White Cardstock) to measure 4.25″ x 5.5″.
Using your Tim Holtz Stamp Platform (I used the *NEW* travel sized one), position the sentiment and the large floral spray on the card as shown:
Stamp the floral spray into a piece of stamp masking paper, cut out and stick over top of the floral spray that is stamped directly onto the card.
Using the Doin’ The Polka Background Stamp, stamp in versa mark to totally cover the card (Don’t worry your floral spray is protected by the masking paper), sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.
Using a mini ink blending tool with Catherine Poole “It’s A Girl” ink start at the top right hand corner and work down on a diagonal. In the lower left hand corner blend up with Catherine Pooler Ink in “Party Dress” and blend the two together.
Cut a piece of black pearl cards that measures 6″ x 4.5″ and cut a decorative edge into the top using a die from the Crafter’s Companion Decorative Edge die.
Attach the Card front to the black Panel using some double sided tape. From here you can either make a card back and attach pr mount this right onto a card blank.
Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks to see more projects that I make with these amazing stamp sets!
Also, it is totally worth noting that by far, Catherine Pooler Inks are indeed the best and most versatile inks that I have EVER used!
