Our initial introduction of Hybrid Inks was such a thrill! We’re excited to share our second batch of colors with you this month – thirteen new shades in both ink pad and refill formats, that coordinate with our existing Replenishments products. These pigment based inks dry like dye inks and are permanent on paper surfaces, acid-free, archival, and fade resistant. These inks feature a raised felt pad and are slightly larger than our current ink pads. Inks can be heat set on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal, and clay. As these inks are fast drying and waterproof, they cannot be embossed with embossing powder. Are you curious about what these inks are capable of? Our team has worked hard to show what they can do and just how versatile they are. Check out their reviews here and here.
Ultra Clean is a new addition to our line. It’s perfect for cleaning your stamps and awesome for hybrid ink cleaning. Keep your stamps squeaky clean for years of happy stamping.
Our May Guest Designer is the delightful Heather Campbell. She’ll be sharing her May release projects on her blog so check back everyday as we link to her beautiful creations! A big thank you to Heather for joining us this month.
