  1. I use distress inks a lot, I also like VersaFine (I switched to it from Ranger’s Archival), Hero Arts shadow inks are good for large and solid images and Memento for detailed images and texts.

  2. I love the variety of memento inks. I have gotten a couple of SSS ink pads in my card kits which are nice. But I also like Stampin up Ink pads

  3. I ‘inherited’ a ton of Stampin Up! Spots when my sister moved away. I’m relatively new to stamping, so I can’t really justify buying too many inks when I have so many colors on hand, and with my limited skills so far. I can’t wait to start buying pigment inks though! Funny thing, I did splurge and bought StazOn black so that I could practice color blending with inks and chalk… and I’m addicted to the smell of the ink!! It smells like maraschino cherries, or almond extract (both very similar in scent) which I absolutely love! So anytime I use my StazOn, I always take a little whiff first, lol!

  4. Thanks for the great video! I can’t get enough of the Distress Inks – so many things you can do with them. Loving the new minis along with the storage container – great tip on the blending foam underneath!!

  5. Lots of wonderful information about ink. I use mostly a black die based ink pad and my distress inks.

  6. I am a new stamper and my favorites are those I have: Ranger Archival Ink and TH Distress Inks 😀
    Thank you for another great video, tips and giveaway 😀

  7. I use mostly distress inks because they are so easy to get here in Spain. A lot of the inks you mention just don’t get here like the Mama Elephant or the Hero Arts or My favorite Things so we can’t try them out. I really like the big pads you use on your videos, I mostly use small Memento Dew Drops to ink stamps, but the bigger pads seem much easier for bigger stamps.

  8. So far the only inks I’ve got are from Stampin UP and CTMH. I have been eyeing those distress inks from T.H. but I haven’t gotten around to trying them. I’m loving this peek into your craft room and your supply cabinets! Great experience that you are sharing with us.

  9. I love love love mama elephant inks. I am looking forward to trying the hero arts black and the white ink pads that were featured in the video but my fav is ME in every color!

  10. Thanks so much for the helpful videos. Love your organizing ideas also. I have mostly memento inks and distress inks now. I have ordered some shadow inks and I can’t wait to try them.

  11. Hello Jennifer, your videos are the best! When I check my emails everyday I can’t wait to see what new I can learn from you, your like my crafting bible, I don’t need any other book lol. I have just a few of the Tim Holtz distress and love. I haven’t found any that I loved enough to take that plunge and buy the whole collection. Of coarse as always I want to go and buy EVERTHING and I do mean everything you show us, lol. What line would you recommend someone starting out. Thanks for sharing and the chance to win.

  12. I really like Memento for stamping. I also use a lot of Distress Ink for shading, stamping, and playing! Love that stuff!

  13. for techniques, you just can’t go wrong with distress inks. I just wish all the colors were as bright as the seasonal ones cause they are the best!! I tried HA shadow inks and was very disappointed in them :(.

  14. I would have to say distress inks or Momento dew drops. I am still looking for the perfect black ink for alcohol markers.

  15. My favorite inks are distress inks (thanks to you!) and Stampin’ Up inks. I like how the stampin’ up products color coordinate with each other (ribbon, ink, paper, etc)

  16. I haven’t done a lot things with ink yet, but I really like the distress ink minis from ranger. Gives you a chance to Test all the colors for a good price and they are perfectly stackable.

  17. Hero Arts for basics, Distress for techniques, and Versa Mark is a must-have. Lately loving VersaMark Frost for tone on tone.

  18. My favorite go to ink (other than versa mark ink for embossing purpose) has always been cersa fine onyx black ink. It works well with all kinds of stamps.

  19. My favourite inks are the Tim Holtz distress inks. I also like the little teardrop-shaped ink pads – not sure of the name but they are something I have always wanted to get.

  20. My favorite inks to use so far are the distress inks! I like do color combos on my projects! I also love mama elephant’s pigment inks!
