  1. What a simple but impactful technique. I look forward to giving in layering a try. Love all the ways you used it, too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Another terrific video! I have loved HA ink pads for years (Cup ‘o Joe is my favorite and had to buy a second one. I didn’t see the link to Hero’s detailed description of the Core Inks that you mentioned in the video. I will try to find it, but if you could provide it, it would help. Love your trick on using the packaging…that is genius and has saved me many sleepless nights! Thanks a million.

  3. I really enjoyed this on, Jennifer. I also appreciated the reminder that my Hero inks (that I have always loved) truly are great and I should probably just add a few more to complete my collection and call it good!

  4. You sold me! I went ahead and purchased the kit, and jut finished following your tips to stamp the flamingoes. I’ve also had great fun using that “strip” stamp to make several sheets of colorful inky fabness in various color schemes. Hybrid inks are new to me, and the pinks, in particular, have really stained my stamps. Is this normal, or should I have a special cleaner designed for hybrid ink?
