Complete Ink Swatch Book Downloads

A few weeks ago I shared a video showing my Ink Swatch Book, along with many free ink swatch downloads. Today I am sharing my final batch of downloads, along with an editable file if you want to create your own.

In case you missed it – here the video I shared a few weeks ago that explains how I organize my ink swatches. I am still very much loving and very much USING this book.

I use coin pages to hold my 2” x 2” ink swatches and hold the pages together with ring clips. The Simon Says Stamp Swatch Stamp works perfectly for getting a nice ink sample on each square. (However, you can use any stamp you may have.) This makes for a very convenient ink organization system. I love it! I plan to also add my cardstock swatches to the book.

We have created many free downloadable ink swatch pages for many popular ink lines. At the end of the list are two editable files – one for Photoshop and one for Microsoft Word. Between these files, you should have everything you need to get organized. All you have to do is download the files (click DOWNLOAD for each) and print on your favorite white cardstock. (I printed mine on Neenah since that is what I use most.) Some inks have more than one page since there are so many colors.

Please note that today I have made the final additions – downloads for Close To My Hearts, Ranger Archival, Hero Arts Chalk, new Memento Dye, new My Favorite Things Hybrid and Versafine Inks. I also added an editable Word document and updated/fixed Stampin’ Up downloads.

I feel so relieved to have a system that works for me. I hope it works for you, too! Many people have been sharing their swatch books using my downloads. If you have, please share your pictures below.

I must give out a big shout to Karen Kelly who developed many of the additional ink company swatches shared here. She is so very awesome for doing this. And don’t worry… I am spoiling her with many stamping treats in return. :) If you see any boo-boos, please leave them in the comments below. I will get them fixed and update this page afterwards.



Some winners: Beatrice Lawson gets the Altenew stamp… Jennifer Harrison won the Hero Arts stamps… and Barbara Lassiter will soon get the Mini Ink Blending Tools!

    Hi, I loved watching your ink swatch vids….I used your idea with the inked tags for all of my embossing folders close to 100 & counting & included a pattern/numbering system to track each one. Anyhow, back to inks…Ive tried several diff brands & have come to really like the Tsukineko Inks of the dew drop size to cut down cost & to get more colors and nearly have the complete sets in the chalk, dye & brilliance line. Since you seem to be an expert on many inks, what is your impression of these since you dont seem to have any. I also have about dozen TH Distress inks & several StazOn. I plan to also use your system for my embossing powders as well of about 2 dozen kinds. Thanks again & appreciate your advice & input. Crafters UNITE!!
