Ink pads and Refills
First up are Catherine Pooler inks and refills. Catherine Pooler inks are great for some many techniques from stamping, stencilling, swinking and watercolouring. Read why stampers are loving these inks here. All the colours are available as full sized ink pad in collections of colours that go together (however they can be mixed and matched between the collections). Eight of the collections are available in Mini ink pad form, with Midnight and Icing On The Cake available in mini form separately.

Did you gift Catherine Pooler ink pads last year? How about stocking up with the Catherine Pooler refills? Or maybe the Catherine Pooler Side Labels? These are small stickers that fit along the edge of the full sized ink pad or mini ink pad to make searching for the colour you need much easier.
CP Embossing Powder
At TLPT we love Catherine Pooler inks and it only makes sense that we stock WOW Embossing Powders inspired by Catherine. Every colours that is currently available in the UK are in stock.

Following on from stamping and heat embossing is card. Good high quality card makes all the difference with card making. Neenah Solar white comes in multiple pack sizes and at two different weights. The 80lb card is great for alcohol marker colouring and heat embossing, while the 110lb card is best for card bases. Both Neenah card is available in packs of 25 sheets, 50 sheets and full big pack size.

Card is a layered topic. Each technique requires a different type of card. Stencilling and ink blending is best on Bristol card, where as ink blending with CP inks also works great on CP Premium white card.

We have a wide range of blending brushes in the shop. Catherine Pooler’s own brand of blending brushes come in packs of four brushes in two sizes – Small and Large. They are teal in colour and have white bristles.
Similarly, Trinity Stamps Blending Buddy brushes have white bristles, they also come with a cap to protect the bristles, and have different handles to be able to stand up the brushes on craft desks.
Not all of us do… but I think most card makers love bling and sequins. Surprisingly they is such a thing as low quality bling (for me anyway). We have a wide range of Trinity Stamps embellishment drops – coloured, silver, gold, rhinestone and smooth in the shop. Catherine Pooler’s sequin mixes are great for shaker card making and adding those finishing touches.
If you haven’t noticed, we love Catherine Pooler’s products. The last in this Gift Guide are acrylic stamping blocks. An essential for card making. Catherine Pooler’s acrylic blocks are called Perfect Blocks. Available in different sizes, all have grid lines etched on the block and light weight. There are eight different sizes from 1 1/5″ square for smaller stamping to 4 7/8 x 6 1/8″ for larger background stamps.
