Updated Ink Swatch Downloads

Hello! Remember how I shared a bunch of free Ink Swatch Downloads awhile back? I have added a few updates!

To see my complete list of Ink Swatch Downloads along with a video on how I use them, please go HERE. Here are the ones I added today…

I had said earlier that I wouldn’t be updating the downloads unless it was an ink I would be using. Well, I use the MFT Hybrids and the WPlus9 Inks, so here they are! And a sweet gal emailed me about the SU inks, so I did them too.

Oh, and when I say “I” did them, that is really a fib. Sweet Karen Kelly did them for me to share with all of you. And don’t worry – I spoil her. 🙂

Many have asked if I would be doing swatch downloads for embossing powders. I honestly haven’t decided if it is something I would use yet. I have something else in mind and if I decide to do it and I end up liking it, I will share it. Promise. 🙂

And one more thing. Many people have asked me why I don’t keep these ink swatch sheets in a binder. I find it is better for me to use the three rings so I can flip through them and not have to have a big open binder on my desk. So much better.

  1. Thanks Jennifer. I have organised my inks in the same way and I find it so much easier to get the colour I need. I also stamped on the back covering the edge so I can line up the ink without the white border, and also with a fine pattern to see how that ink would cope with such a stamp. Thanks for your continued inspiration.

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks so much for creating and posting the swatches. I enjoy your blog
    and your you tube videos. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

  3. Jennifer, Thank you for sharing so much with all of us. I have absorbed a lot watching your videos and always look forward to your next offering. Thanks again for sharing your talents!

  4. I’ve adopted your swatch book too and I find it more convenient and accessible than the swatch ring. But I like the swatch ring for my distress colors. I use both the front and back of the tags for samples of the ink (stamped, swiped, and brushed on with water), markers, stains, and paints. The 2 x 2 book inserts don’t provide enough room for all of that.

  5. Jennifer, thanks so much for sharing with us crafters….to make our crafting easier and organized. Can you open your home for organization tours? Just kidding. I just think your amazing how you excel at organization. I am some what that way too. But as the older I get (age 69) I find myself not needing such now. I do have a huge craft studio and it is organized to,suit my need. I craft for my personal enjoyment to take my mind off of hubby having cancer and undergoing treatments. I give card sets to family and friends as we all know how expensive cards are to,purchase. Everyone loves them, I get to keep busy. I wanted to let you know how much you have taught me in card making. I appreciate you more than you can ever know. THANK YOU. and KIND REGARDS. Connie

  6. Thank you for all your work you put in these swatches! I’ve implemented this system and it changed my life! SO much more convenient then swatches on tags. Especially when one has a lot of inks.
    How do you organize your mists? I made the same 2×2 swatches for all my mists, works like a charm!

  7. You Rock! This is such a great idea. I’m somewhat new to your site and I love it. I am so appreciative of all the wonderful, creative skills and ideas you share.

  8. Oh my gosh, Jennifer. You are a life saver. I love these and wondered how to get them for each specific ink line. I have my work cut out for me now!

  9. I really love your swatch book! I’ve used your idea for my own, and it works perfectly!!! Such a great idea!! Thank YOU for sharing!!! And thank you to Karen Kelly for doing all the sheets for us!

  10. You are really one of my favorite crafty peeps because you stamp. And you share. I’ve always loved stamping, way before what it is what it is today with so much available. I love your organizing tips and I’m going to use them because after being in the craft industry for almost 30 years, I will finally have my own little craft room at home, so excited!
    I know by organizing, it will save me more time for actually crafting. Thank You so much for all the great sharing that you do!

  11. I echo all the appreciative comments…and then some. So much of my organization has come from your talented tutorials. The ink swatches completely changed my stamping and I use what I have because I can so easily see the colors. Thank you from the bottom of my creative heart…you rock.

  12. Earlier this summer I used your suggestions for organizing my clear stamp sets and I love it. Now I’m working on using your tips for organizing and making the most of my inks. I feel like I waste a lot of time fumbling through them trying to find the perfect colors for my projects. Thank you so much for the free printouts. I started printing them out and stamping on them out tonight. Fun, fun!!

  13. The way you designed these cards for easy cutting is ingenious! I was hoping tho, that you could make like a template file for us that we could edit to put our own colors in. Thx so much!

  14. Thanks so much for this amazing video, and for sharing the swatches. You’ve done such a lovely job. I love the idea!

    Love your videos – I watch them over and over.


  15. Thank you so much for assisting me with organization of my inks. I just found your website from others and have spent 2 days going through it-AMAZING.

  16. Thank you for sharing your organizing methods! I have many moments when I think “Duh, I should have thought about that!” when I see how you execute your methods 🙂

  17. First, thanks so very much for all the information and use of downloads. I have a problem. I have been diligently working on my swatch book, but am halted by a stained stamp. This doent bother me everything seemed to be going fine. I cleaned my stamp after each color then test on white paper to make sure I cleaned it good. After I did a few Momentous, versa fine, and Mama elephant I started working on my Simon Shadow and I think dye ink pads. As soon as I started working on this group I notice the colors were not stamping true color even though after I cleaned the stamp and it stamped clear on white paper. I noticed that color was being pulled off the stained stamp. So cleaned again and again stamps clear. I used a scratch piece of paper to suck up the discolored area on my ink pad. I have done this repeatedly I finally gave up afraid to go any farther in my swatch book creating. The only time I got any discoloration off the stained stamp is when I spray with alcohol, but now I still have a stained stamp and alcohol stooped taking any stain off. Any help would be so appreciated. Sorry so long.

  18. I had been using an excel program and kept losing track of what I had. With these, I can now stamp the colors I have and know what I do and do not have. TFS! and your hard work for doing these:)

  19. Thank you so very much for the downloads. I have been struggling with this. This seems like a perfect fit for me. I thank you again for giving the downloads.

  20. Thank you very much for the downloads! It works great. It is a while ago that the ink swatch downloads were updataed. Would you please update the new colors of Stampin’ up and the oxide distress inks by Tim Holtz? I would much appreciate it.
    Kind regards, Marly

  21. You may have already created one for the Hero Arts Reactive Inks but if not, I used your AMAZING Word template to create one! I’m not sure how I could attach the PDF here but I’d be happy to?! A huge thank you for all you share! 🙂

  22. Thank you so much, I’m trying to get organized in 2020 and these downloads really help. I have learned so many techniques from watching your videos, for many years my goal is to learn something new every day and you have made it very easy and I’m inspired to make more cards, thank you. I wish more people would get on your kindness bandwagon, it’s great! Jeanne

  23. I love the idea of the ink swatches. Is there any chance you would be updating the Stampin up ink names for the current colors?
