Cozy Mittens and Glitter Paper with Pigment Inks

Share This!

cozy mittens 2 The first thing I have to say here is, I’m totally cracking up at this video.  After I edit, then upload a video to Youtube, I generally watch it again.

Part way through this video after stamping one of the mittens I say, “I didn’t really get a good impression”.  Oh wow, after you view the video you will see that is quite the understatement!

I worked through it and showed you how to overcome this sort of obstacle.

Earlier this week, I posted a video showing you what a Pigment Ink Pad is and what the unique properties are.  In today’s video, we will see Pigment Ink Pads in action on this fun winter card.

I love how vibrant Pigment Ink Pads are and that you can stamp color on top of color like this!  Dye inks definitely do not do this!

I’m not trying to diss Dye inks…don’t get me wrong!  I love dye inks and most of my ink pads are dye….but there is no denying that what Pigment Inks do is pretty awesome.

I also love using my Pigment Inks Direct to Paper to color the paper, then covering it with Clear Glitter Embossing Powder and heating.  Instant, perfect, customized Glitter Paper!
