  1. What a quick and easy tip w/the white pen–thanks!!!

    At the moment, my favorite inks are still the distress inks…I love the new barn door red and the chipped sapphire colors…With 2 boys and many scrapbook pages to do, I tend to use those color a lot! 🙂

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. Jennifer, you have a new fan in Tereza Crump(Creating Treasures) She praised you as a “superior stamper” on her blog today. No news to me or thousands of other card makers.I like the Uni-ball pen too. Kristina Werner recommended it on her blog. I use lots of browns for distressing torn edges, Memories black for images I will color and Distress inks for cool effects. Haven’t used dobbers except for chalking.Your technique today is sure worth a try. Thanks for the video. Hope you and yours are having a great summer.

  3. I love both of the products you are highlighting today. My favorite ink is the memento tuxedo black as it works really good with my new love, Copic markers so well. Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. Super looking quick cards! I’m itchin’ for some Hero Arts Chalk ink–the colors are so bright and pretty 🙂 My all time go-to ink is Memento Black…and in other cases, Versamark for its purposes. Have a great weekend!

  5. love the cards!! so creative!!!
    my dfavorite ink to use is probably… my distress inks!! they ROCK!!! heehee!!
    great giveaway!! thanks!!

  6. I love the Cat’s Eye chalk Ink pads. I love that you can get five different colours in one package! Love your cards by the way!

  7. Oooh I love those pens! I bought 3 of them and the third one is almost out and its only been a couple months! They are soooo fun to use and work wonderful!

  8. Right now my favorite ink is not actually a pad, it’s the alcohol inks-loving some new techniques with those right now!

  9. I tend to tend to use a lot of black with my stamps… then color them in. Also I love me some Versamark! I love embossing so between my Copics and Zing I’m typically a happy camper! 🙂 I love these cards!

  10. What a great idea for those daubers. I saw them in the store the other day, but wasn’t sure what I would do with them, so walked away with out them. Now I wish I had them!

  11. I’ve been hooked on Distress Inks since last summer, but lately I am in LOVE with the new chalk inks from Hero Arts. They are so perfect!

  12. I really like Versafine inks…they work so well with colored pencils and gamsol. I am looking forward to using the white Uniball Signo pen.

  13. I love Tim Holtz distressed inks and have been using the signo pen for about a year now and I absolutely LOVE it. I really like the idea of the dots actually on the stamped image. I use my signo for faux stitching around the outside of the card….thanks for the inspiration Jennifer!!

  14. Today Momento Tuxedo because that is what i just used. Love to color with my new copics. I have this stamp and i adore what you did with the blending. Thanks for sharing.

  15. love my close to my heart inks but thanks to you have gotten into distress inks as well, so my favorite changes depending on what I’m doing:) Thanks for the video, have always wondered how to use the daubers effectively.

  16. These sponge daubers look like the perfect thing. My favorite ink is Anna Griffin brown..I seem to use it all the time.

  17. I do not think I could pick just one favourite kind of ink…It all depends on what look I am going for I love Distress inks, and Momento, Hero Arts chalk inks, and I would love to try the new American Craft ink, I’ve heard good things about it….see i told you I could not pick just one :)Thanks Jennifer

  18. I love your cards!! And will definitely check out “The Daily Marker!”

    I love to use Stampin’ Up dye inks … but I’m also in love with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I rarely use anything but these inks!

    Thanks for a great video, Jennifer!

  19. This technique looks great! I love Kathy’s blog, too. I’ve been following it for about six months now. I also love my Signo broad pen! It’s one of my favorite papercrafting tools for sure.

    As far as inks, my favorite so far is Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink, but there’s not much around here for selection so I haven’t tried many other brands. I get a lot of use out of my Chestnut Roan pad.

    Thanks for the video on the sponge daubers! I’ve been wanting to try them out.

  20. Beautiful cards thanks for sharing. My favorite are the Ranger Distressed inks, I use them quite often. Thanks for all your views on what you like. It’s great to see what people like (and don’t)

  21. I love distress inks so far, but I also would like to try Hero Hue inks too… I like the subtle look of the ink..

  22. I just recently purchased a few new distress inks…wild honey and pumice stone. I love them both! I love all of the distress inks…I especially like spraying perfect pearls on them.

  23. Every project I make has to have some Ranger distress ink on it…. And most of the time it is in Broken China or pealed paint. Just love those colours.

    Love the colourfull cards in the video.

  24. I’ve just begun stamping so I haven’t yet found a favorite ink. I try to buy new stuff as often as I can afford to but am just beginning to accumulate stuff. Love your blog and thanks for the candy!


  25. I love your stamped & coloured flowers … it’s like tole painting without the practice *hee hee*.

    My fave ink is my Tuxedo Black Memento, because it plays nicely with my copic markers (which are my new favourite toy).

  26. What a fabulous technique, it’s super easy and it’s sooo beautiful…wow! I really like to use distress inks as well, at least for the inky splotchy look…otherwise I also have a lot of pigment ink pads that are really juicy – stamp over anything!

  27. Thanks for sharing! :o) Love your cards and projects, they are all breathtaking!
    My favourite ink is Distress Ink. I love using them to colour, as well as inking my edges etc, and I use them every day!


  28. Thanks for the video! Those daubers look so much easier than using a cosmetics sponge. I love my chalk inks and distress inks.

  29. Ever since I watched your “Thinking Inking” videos, I’ve been hooked on the Ranger Distress Inks in every colour!!
