  1. My favorite ink is my Versamark because I can use it in so many ways! I really want to try colored pigment inks, because they seem to give very good results

  2. My favorite inks for techniques are Distress Inks, but I also really like my Memento for stamping images I can color with my copics.

  3. Thanks for the informative video. My favorite inks are the Ranger Distress Inks – I use them on almost every project.

  4. My favorite ink is hands down VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I could never get a solid, crisp image before I started using this :]

  5. So many favorite inks, yet I really do reach for the Onyx Black from VersaFine the most. I use it for sentiments, and it really does make the image look crisp and perfect. Thanks for the great video!

  6. I have many different ink pads that I’ve used and picked up through the years. I have a few stampin up ink pads and I do like those.

  7. I like Distress and Momento inks. Thanks for the great info in all your favorite products for 2015. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family.

  8. I’m a huge fan of Close To My Heart Ink. I am a consultant so it’s what I use the most really. Plus distress inks for techniques.

  9. My favorite go -to inks are Distress Inks – they always add to anything I make. Jennifer. You and Kristina are my go-to people for inspiration & trying out new techniques!

  10. I like the Tsukineko Dew drops particularly the shimmery ones. I also like colorbox chalk inks but find that the small ones can dry out.

  11. I don’t have a “favorite” ink pad. I have all the Stampin’ Up! colors that I use for stamping. I like the Distress pads as well; Momento for Copic coloring and Archival for watercoloring. I remember the Kaleidacolors – they were so much fun!

  12. My go-to inks are the Memento line but I am finding myself liking the Simon Says/Hero Arts/Wplus9/Lawn Fawn formulation more each day. (What can else can a self-proclaimed ink addict do?)

  13. Hello Jennifer, I currently use Distress Inks a lot because of their versatility and this has been a cost savings for me at this time. I would so enjoy an opportunity to expand my collection and try a new product line. Thank you for a chance to enter the giveaway. God bless you.

  14. I just started collecting the Stampin Up inks…. I debated so much between different companies. But I love AltNew and their stamps…. haven’t tried their inks yet. Thanks for all you do!

  15. My favorite stamps is the hero arts ombré inks. It creates a layered affect without too much effort. It’s really helpful for beginners like me ?

  16. I have not tried many inks, just the standard Stamping Up inks but would love to start trying new inks from different companies to see the difference. Standard black ink is Memento and Versa fine.

  17. I adore the new Ranger ink pads, even though they only come in a few colors they are bright and unique! I have an IDEA…Ranger should come out with the “Jennifer McGuire” collection in this line! Wouldn’t it be cool to design your own colors? Happy thoughts!

  18. I have lots of favorite inks – Versafine for sentiments, Momento for Copic Coloring, Tim Holtz Distress for backgrounds.. but my fave for solid images is Pigment Ink. It’s more trouble to clean off your stamps but gives a clear bold impression ALWAYS!

  19. My favorite are the Hero Art’s Inks, but I have lots of Distress Ink and love adding water to them. Thanks for the wonderful videos, so much great information!!!!

  20. Thank you for sharing Jennifer! My favorite inks are Distress Inks but I will gladly take the inks you are giving away!!!!! Love from Massachusetts!!!

  21. My favorite ink for stamping images is VersaFine Onyx Black, it gives a perfect impression every time! I also love distress inks.

  22. I don’t know why but for some reason I never really understood the difference between pigment and dye ink until I saw this video. Thank you so much for helping us crafters be better at what we do.

  23. My favorite inks are the distress inks and I have learned so much from your videos on how to use them in so many ways.

  24. If you are looking for a good quality white ink, try Stampin Up’s. It is the only Stampin Up product that I own, but was thrilled with the consistent results I get from this ink on dark card stock. I had tried 5 other brands of white ink to no avail.
