Here's a typed list for you too: 

StazOn – Jet Black #101406

  • Solvent based - fabric pad
  • Fast drying - don’t leave open for long periods
  • Permanent on pretty much anything 
  • Best on non porous surfaces - window sheets, cellophane bags, tiles glass, vellum
  • Clean with StazOn cleaner - do not use cleaner on Photopolymer
  • Alcohol based products will activate this ink and it will run – DO NOT USE WITH Alcohol based markers
  • Can use with markers, blender pens and Aqua painters
  • Great if you are getting your project wet!

Memento Black #132708

  • Dye ink - fabric pad
  • Fast Drying, fade resistant, acid free
  • Ink will not be activated with Alcohol based products - will not run 
  • While not waterproof - will dry on vellum after about 1 min
  • Great for basic stamping

 Archival Basic Black #140931 & Basic Gray #140932

Classic Archival Pads have permanent ink, making them the obvious choice for watercoloring techniques. The ink pad design has a patented flip-top lid and a firm felt pad to give you a superior stamping experience. Archival ink works equally well with rubber stamps and photopolymer stamps.

  •  Fast drying, permanent ink
  • Acid free
  • Flip top for upside-down storage: pads stay inked during storage
  • Can be re-inked with Archival Stampin' Ink Refills
  • Best choice for fined lined stamps and little words
  • Will dry on Vellum with about 1 minute of drying time
  • Use Stampin’ Mist to clean ink off Photopolymer
  • Can be used with Aqua Painter, Blender Pens and Markers - allowing ink to dry for about 1 minute before coloring

Beautiful You Masking

DSCN9751W

 

The BEAUTIFUL YOU stamp set is among my all time favorites in the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog. The images are classy and simple. I love the greetings and I'm more in love with the font!!! Here's a simple and elegant card I made recently, using a masking technique with a little twist. I used large post it notes on the top right to mask the edge to make it more straight-lined. Do you like it? I think it's a pretty cool look.

I've used this technique before - you can find another card featuring this masking idea below.
