September 2015 - Card Workshop, Paper Flowers Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month

The school year is up and running smoothly, now it is time to get back into the swing of things with our paper crafting workshop/club nights. I have been working on the September cards for the past week. This is the third card for the workshop. The first three cards are scraplifted from Lynn Como, so I cannot take credit for their design. They can be found on my Facebook Group page.

Ink Stamp Pad Comparison - Close To My Heart

Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads: Our Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads, including our Black Exclusive Inks pads, are water-based dye inks. The dye ink absorbs directly into your paper and allows the colors to blend easily with the material. They dry quickly and blend easily. These inks are recommended for most stamping projects, but not for projects where you plan on using watercolors or coloring with alcohol markers after stamping the image. Many colors available, they coordinate with the Close To My Heart cardstock and paper packets.


Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ stamp pad: Our Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ stamp pad is our archival ink offering. This pad quickly sets an image that you can then color in using watercolor pencils, watercolors, or water-based inks with the blending pen.


Exclusive Inks™ Mini Pigment Pad Sets: Pigment inks behave differently from dye inks, in that they settle on top of your material rather than soaking into it. This allows you to stamp lighter colors on darker materials and to keep the true color of the ink pad when stamping on another color. Though they take longer to dry, when dried, they work well for coloring in with your markers or watercolor inks, as the pigment inks will form a permanent bond and will resist blending when you color over them. Four sets are available: Enchantment, Adventure, Basics and Whimsy



StazOn™ ink pad: StazOn™ is specifically formulated for stamping on non-porous materials. Because StazOn is solvent-based, this ink works well when stamping an image that you will later color over with watercolors, but it is not ideal for use with alcohol markers. Brown and Black Available.



Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink pad: The Memento™ ink pad gives you another archival quality ink pad that works for any stamping project and can be used with alcohol markers, watercolors, or any of our other coloring options.

Refills are also available for all colors and stamp pad choices!

Enjoy!
