Hi everybody! I think it's interesting to find out what products my fellow crafters like to use so today's bloghop is going to showcase Tami Mayberry's new Grand Tags stamp (in red rubber and clear) set and a few of my favorite products. By the way, check out Tami's new logo above. Isn't it perfect for her? Very clean and crisp just like some ink I'll be telling you about below. :)
Clearsnap ink has quickly become one of my favorite inks. They were kind enough to send my design team and I ink samples and I was very impressed I have to say. I couldn't believe how vibrant the color was. I compared it to another popular brand of ink and hands down, Clearsnap won in the vibrancy department. The ink really hugged the stamp and provided a crisp image as well. The other plus is that it is a dye ink so it dried really fast. Take a minute and check out Clearsnap's Blog and for those of you who haven't tried Clearsnap (also know as Colorbox), I did a comparison against another very popular ink and below are the pictures....
In this comparison, the top is Clearsnap ink. See how much more vibrant it is than the bottom one? It almost looks like it's 3-D, jumping off the paper.
In this example using Tami Mayberry's Grand Tags stamp, the bottom one is Clearsnap. Again, see that it is darker and more vibrant? The color is just richer looking. I noticed that it really clung to the stamp resulting in the stamped image being perfectly crisp, clear and the perfect color ink.
This is a card I made using Tami's new Grand Tags stamp set. I used Clearsnap ink for this image and sentiment. Notice how good it looks. :)
