Frequently Asked Questions, Updates and Sales
Hi! I have been getting a lot of questions lately so I thought I would pop in and share some answers… along with a few updates and sales!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: You mentioned Altenew Obsidian Black Ink in your recent video as a great black ink. How does it compare to Gina K Amalgam Ink?
A: Good question! I use BOTH. I use Altenew Obsidian Black Ink for sentiments, solid images, and when I want to heat emboss. (It is a pigment ink.) I use Gina K Amalgam Ink when I want to stamp an image to color (it works with Copic Markers, watercolor, colored pencils, etc.). With the two together, I have everything I need. Both are incredible!
By the way, the Altenew Obsidian Black Ink is out of stock in most places. More had to be manufactured! It will be back in several weeks.
Q: I thought blending brushes would have made your list of new must-have products video. Do you still like them? Do you still use Ink Blending Tools?
A: I do still use both! I didn’t put blending brushes in that recent video since I had them on my My Favorite Crafty Things Tool Video in 2018. I use both blending brushes and ink blending tools still. I have a video coming up soon comparing them all!
Q: Do you like the new Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes?
A: I do! I like both of the blending brushes I have tried – Life Changing Brushes and Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. Both are great and I will use both. The Stamp Market just came out with brushes, too! (More on that below.) I ordered some and can’t wait to try them.
By the way, Taylored Expression brushes are out of stock and more are being made. If you are interested, get on the waiting list HERE.
Q: Do you sell your cards?
A: I am sorry, I don’t sell my cards. I do send cards randomly to blog readers, friends I have made on social media, and to those who have sent me cards. I wish I could send one to everyone! But I do send a lot!
Q: How do you keep track of what stamps and dies you have?
A: I don’t do anything. 🙂 I am weird and remember what I have. Sorry!
Q: Do you sell your supplies? What do you do with extras?
A: I don’t directly sell my old supplies. I donate many of them, give others to friends, etc. However, I do sometimes put together boxes stuffed with supplies and “sell” them to blog readers… and 100% of the money goes to charity. If you want to be considered for one of these boxes leave a comment on THIS post. Whenever I get boxes together I refer to the folks who left comments there.
I will answer more questions in a future post! Hope this helps.
