NeutralInks_FBAD2 (1) It’s been an exciting week with the addition of two neutral ink colors to our line!  We have two shipments of these inks and we’ve already sold out of our first shipment.  No worries, though, our next shipment arrives Friday afternoon!

If you are new to our inks, please hop over here to learn about them.  They’re not your everyday, run-of-the-mill ink.  ;)

“dye inks that don’t transfer color, they blend, can be used to emboss, and react with water! I’m giddy with joy.”  -Leslie

Here is a quick replay from Facebook Live (I’ve been doing a lot of these!)…first we’ll look at how to cut dies apart, then the new inks!

Thanks for checking in today, I hope you found the video helpful!

    More than once I have used diagonal cutters (which are not needle-nosed–needle-hosed pliers are a different thing altogether) as you showed and ended up cutting myself on the tiny bits left on the die. You either have to be very careful handling dies that have been separated or use some sort of grinding tool to eliminate sharp edges. That can make separating dies very time-consuming. I wish sellers wouldn’t sell them this way. Most crafters aren’t going to don safety glasses to clip them (because as you said, those clippings really fly, and safety glasses are the best way to protect your eyes), so that’s another product liability issue.

    Love that you use the “way down in the trash can” technique for all those little metal nibs left when detaching the dies. That’s my technique. Those new inks . . . can’t wait to get them. LOVE your inks.

    Yeah! I’ve been wondering about these colors, especially a shade of brown (Icing on the Cake)& now you have them! Love how your ink pads work. Just a small pat or two gives enough coverage on the stamp to make the image.
