Catherine Pooler: Foundations Box Blog Hop

Welcome to Day One of the Foundations Box Blog Hop!  Today and tomorrow Catherine Pooler will be having a team of super talented women join her to show off her brand new Foundations Box!


The Foundations Box includes:
  • 30 pre-scored Premium Bright White 100lb Cardstock A2 Card Bases
  • 3 brand new, never before seen Clear Stamp Sets; "Spot On", "For Everything" & "Amazing Floral" by Catherine Pooler Designs
  • 5 Premium Full Sized Dye Ink Pads; Midnight, Fiesta Blue, Orange Twist, Grass Skirt & Rockin' Red
  • And a beautiful 2 3/4" Circular Clear Acrylic Block
  • and another very special somethin’ somethin’ (newsletter subscribers will receive an email with a special video about this on Tuesday evening from Catherine)


Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much is the box worth?
The box's retail value is well over $80 BUT Catherine loves you so much, 
so she 's only selling it for $67 US.  Wowsers!!!!

2. When does it go up for sale?
It actually goes up for sale this week on Wednesday November 16th at 9:00am EST in the Catherine Pooler Shop.   StampNation members will receive a link in the forum approximately an hour earlier. 

3. Do all the inks work with Copic Markers?
The Midnight ink (Black) definitely works with Copic Markers as it is a Archival Permanent ink. The other ink colors have not been proven to work with Copics quite yet.

4. Will I be able to buy ink refills for my ink pads?
Yes... this is still being worked on and will happen later in 2017.

5. Will I be able to buy the 5 ink pads included in the box separately?
Yes... the 5 inks, Midnight, Fiesta Blue, Rockin' Red, Orange Twist and Grass Skirt will all be offered for sale individually in the shop in January 2017 for a price somewhere around $5.00 per ink pad.  PLUS there will be an additional 8 more ink pad colors (still to be announced!) for purchase as well!

6. Will I be able to purchase additional clear blocks or cardstock? 
You sure will!  They will be offered for individual resale in the shop sometime in 2017.
7. Will I be able to purchase the 3 stamp sets in the box separately?
As of today, these 3 new clear stamp sets will only be found in the box.  But that's not say Catherine won't change her mind and offer them sometime in the future.  So you're best to buy them NOW!

For further ink pad education, please check out Catherine's blog and video.
The ink pads in the box have a foam pad ink base and have a slight learning curve.  
Check out all that info HERE.
 

Here's just a tiny sample of the cards I've made using ONLY the contents from this amazing box!

There are sentiments and fun images for BIRTHDAY CARDS...

There are tons of greetings and images for SEASONAL or HOLIDAY cards...

And some fabulous sentiments for CONGRATS cards of any occasion...

For this card, I sacrificed one of my card bases to stamp and cut from to create the popped up banner!  So super easy and fun to create!

The three brand new clear stamp sets alone will sell you on this box whether you're a beginner level stamper or a pro!  And the inks are an awesome BONUS - an ink pad you won't want to live without once you try them... lol!!!

Now, before you go... Catherine is giving away ONE Foundations Box per day of our 2 day blog hop.  All you have to do is COMMENT TO WIN!  You only have 24 hours to leave your comment for a chance to win as Catherine will be announcing her winners from today on her blog tomorrow.  Good luck!
