So exciting!!! This weekTaylored Expressions is launching their NEW line of Premium Ink Pads! YES! The ink pads match 12 of the 29 colors of TE Premium 100# Cardstock! They are made in the USA…love that! The initial launch includes 10 Dye inks that are fast-drying, acid-free and have superior coverage and 2 Hybrid inks that are fast-drying, acid-free, have superior coverage, waterproof for watercoloring AND compatible with alcohol markers. Awesome! I love them!
I chose the TE Oops a daisy stamp set to show off the New inks. I stamped the solid layer of the daisies with the NEW Premium Dye inks, Candy Corn, Lollipop and Jelly Donut. Then stamped the outline layer in Oreo Premium Hybrid ink and added in some shading with the matching Copic markers. I thought it’d be fun to show how well the Copics matched. I cut them out and cut between a few of the petals so they would bend up a bit..
I stamped the daisies on TE Premium Sugar Cube White cardstock. I used the MISTI and the stampamajig imaging sheet for positioning the outline stamped image over the solid stamped image. So pretty… I am so happy with this card… I just love how the daisies stamped up with this ink!
I stamped the solid layer leaves in the NEW Granny Smith Premium Dye ink and the outline layer leaves in the NEW Peapod Premium Dye ink.
For the 3 stems, I stamped the stem stamp three times with Granny Smith ink, right side up, one upside down to get the curve right and then straightened the stamp to stamp the center stem.
I stamped the sentiment with the New Premium Hybrid Chocolate Truffle ink. I just love all the colors and the color names too!
I added three of the NEW Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles, also available in the TE webstore.
My next card uses the same stamp set…
For this card I just used the solid image with the NEW inks. This daisy comes with an outline stamp to coordinate with it but I didn’t use it here. There is a die set to match this stamp set also.
For my card, using the MISTI stamping tool, I inked up the parts of the stamp separately, that way I could clean away color before I stamped. I used ink daubers to ink the stamp! If you haven’t heard of them, they are little sponge things on a plastic case that fit on your index finger. I used the NEW Cherry Pop, Granny Smith and Peapod Premium Dye inks and the Oreo and Chocolate Truffle Premium Hybrid inks.
I die cut three of the TE Stitched Banner Stacklets, one in Sugar Cube, one in Chocolate Truffle and one in Cookie Monster TE Premium Cardstocks.
I wanted to try ink blending with the new inks, so on the Sugar Cube stamped banner, I edged it with the NEW Salt Water Taffy Premium Dye ink and the mini ink blending tool… oh, I snuck on a little of the NEW Cookie Monster Premium Dye ink on the very edges too. use.all.the.ink. lol
