Welcome back to another brand new week! I hope everyone was warm this weekend. It was a bit chilly here. Sooo let's start of this week with some good news for you. After a gazillion pleas and requests, I have decided to re-release the original limited edition Edward and Joseph. So if you've been waiting for these babies, you can grab'em in the shop now.

You know the drill! Email me for this super cute image! Now I know that many of you really really want this digi to be in the shop so we'll give these ladies a headstart and then I'll put them in the shop later next week? Sound good?

Now onwards to this week's digi giveaway...


Princess Maggie

Isn't she just the most darlingest?!!!!! I think she might eventually make it into the shop as well later. Loving these Crafty Critters! And here are my 3 favorite cards for today!



By Alice






By  SemSee

Ta-ta for Today! Keep it slow and easy!

Today's question is: What is your favorite ink to use when stamping?

I actually have a gank of ink by SU! but never use them. I might have to candy-them away someday. Now I use Memento Ink.

Gwen said...

I use Memento now...ONLY Memento...especially for my Copics. SU bleeds with them...but I use the SU for all of my sentiments. Especially my "Butterfly Wishes" sentiments created by Jessica! Yeah, Jessica! Love that set.

My favorite ink is Versafine Onyx Black. It captures the fine details of the stamps.

Just joined this site and love it already!!

Sheng said...

I love my Memories ink. I bought one from a lady for $1 and love it. Too bad it doesn't work well w/ copics.

Patricia said...

Tina said...

Great cards! The digi is adorable. Memento for me too!

I have a ton of inks too, but I use Memento the most. I love this new image! I am happy to hear about all the images making it to the store! I'll go shopping as soon as I can!

Fran said...

Love the digi, she is super duper cute! I use staz on because I usually watercolour, would love to upgrade to copics one day!

Ruthie said...

Staz on for me - just does the job for me!

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

I like Memento as well.

Serafiia said...

What a sweet image!
I use Memento for my markers but for watercolors it's Versafine. I think I should try this again, it's been awhile..

Amy said...

Huge congrats to all the winners and I'm SO excited the new H&G is gonna be made available next week... wahoo!

As far as inks go, if I'm stamping an image to color with my Copics it is Memento all the way, though I do like to change it up between the Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa for different looks. :)

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

What a gorgeous image. I used Versafine in different colours if I am watercolouring but if I am using Promarkers or Copics I use different coloured Memento. I would love to be in with a chance of winning this image. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Sammi said...

Yay!! I'm stoked you are putting her in the store later!! whoo! :D
It's Lovely of you to bring out Edward and Joseph for those who missed out before too!
ooh.. you made my day posting up my card - thanks :D
I just got Memento ink and it's brilliant!

the whimsical butterfly said...

lol gank.... YES Memento for me in brown and black....(now that we color, do we NEED any other colors)? LOL. I actually have a small stack of Palette inks from PTI that i use for MUST-have colors here and there :) Btw, Aww Gwen you are the SWEETEST! SO glad you like the BW set! I love it too ;)

Kristy Young said...

I use stazon to stamp & distress inks to colour with :)
Kristy x

Jodi said...

Ever since I started using Copics, it has been Memento Ink for me as well. I still use my SU inks for sentiments and sky backgrounds as well as the occasional solid stamp image (which I don't seem to use too often anymore). I'm glad to see that Rain will be available too :)

donna mikasa said...

Thank you, thank you for Rain, Rain!! Great to get a head start--can't wait to color her! I love Memento for stamping images, Versafine for sentiments.

Carol Meadows said...

Memento ink and SU as well. I just started getting into distressed inks and playing with those. Carol M in TX/ carolswingster77@aol.com

Kris said...

Congrats to the winners!!! can't wait to get that cutie!!! Memento ink for me too... tried it and got hooked... =D use my other pads for other things too though... =D

vicmbee said...

Love the Digi, I use SU for stamping and watercolouring I haven't had any problems with it bleeding or running..

☼ Cheryl* said...

I think I use momento. I can't remember now, lol.
That Digi is lovely!!!
I LOVE SemSee's card so much! As soon as I saw it a few days ago, I HAD to buy this stamp. Lucky for me, I found it on a site with 20% off so I bought another too :)!

Oura512 said...

WOah so cute!!
Ink: Distress

Tink said...

Memento Ink is the BEST!

Ally said...

Memento ink for me too!

I prefer this ink as I use promarkers and it doesn't bleed.

Love the images!

Caz said...

Memento is the best ink I have found for using with Copics. But when I want to stamp a sentiment I use Versafine as it works better on clear stamps and many of my sentiments are clear stamps.

Gemma said...

Memento ink all the way for me. Love the cards today

Gemma x

Mette said...

Love princess Maggie. I have a little princess of my own who loves dressing up as Cinderella lol.
My favorite atm is Staz-on but I might change to Memento, not sure yet.

Have a lovely day, Mette

KymKreates said...

Oh my gosh, this little princess is to die for! My fave ink is Memento in tuxedo black.
Have a digi day!

Lynda Nielsen said...

Ohhhh what an adorable little critter! Congrats to last weeks winners! Now as for ink, I swear I have tried them all... I would have to say for stamping and then coloring - Momento Tuxedo Black gets my vote 100%. Like you I have a TON of stampin' Up Inks, but I used them for "Other Stuff" details etc, not for actual stamping... Go figure! LOL
Hugs,
Lynda

craftingmanda said...

i always use memento as it is the best one for copics that I know of

Nyna said...

My favorite ink is memento ink black, it's so sharp :) I LOVE this little princess bunny,can't wait for her...!

Nancy said...

Adorable image, and the cards are amazing!! My favorite ink is Memento Tuxedo Black, but I have others in my arsenal that get some play!

Jessica said...

oh, Princess Maggie is so sweet! So excited about last week's digi going up for sale too! I really want to get that one! Love all the great samples today, they're so fun! The ink I use is versafine for black and brown and stampin' up for my colors.

Mary said...

Cute digi! Congrats to the winners! Right now I use Whispers Ink for my stamping ink. I'm still trying to find the right ink.Looks like alot of people like the Memento ink. I'll have to look into getting some to try.

hugs
Mary

beadz said...

I use memento now too.
hugs,
gini

Isabelle said...

versa color for inking the edges of my papers but since i started using copics; Memento is my ink of choice for stamping.

JenRaff said...

Memento mostly but sometimes Adironkack as it works very well with Copics also.
I loved last weeks digi but this week's princess is awesome, too! WOW!

Carol said...

I just love that card by Semsee...I never thought to match the hair to the color of the card - it is cool!

I also use memento ink as it works great with my bics and copics. I love the matchy matchyness of SU ink and markers though, one day , when I win the lotto - I want a full set :)

Okay, another great digi giveaway! I am anxiously awaiting!

Robin McK said...

Yup, I use Memento ink to stamp, and Copic ink to colour in - most of the time.
Love that digi!

Kristen said...

Memento for me, as I color with copics and they work wonderful together. Fabulous image.....!

PaperCrafty said...

I use Memento too!! I still have tons of SU and Papertrey.

Sonya said...

I too have SU ink pad and do NOT use them. I absolutely love the memento pads. They are definately permanent as they say. You can stamp and begin coloring with the copic markers immediately. Congratulations to all the digi winners from last week. I must say I am sooooo glad that it will be in the store to purchase soon because she is just so adorable and now I'm not disabppointed that I didn't win!!! I just purchased both pachage A & B of the copic spica glitter markers this week. OMG, they are incredible! I absolutely love them, I have never used another glitter tool better than these.

Sue D said...

For black I use Memento but for colors I use SU.

debbif said...

I have lots of SU ink also and love the colors. But I have been using the Staz On more and more. I love the little digi giveaway today. She is really cute and I have several little nieces that believe they are princesses!! What a cute digi to use on a card for them!!!

~*Joni said...

Congrats to the adorable digi winners! Yay for Eddy and Jacob being re-released to all the Twifans. :D
Adorable new digi from Marina, she's soooo cute as a princess!
omword, I was staring at my mountain of SU ink as well...I know that the moment I get rid of them I'll find some must-try tutorial with it. lol! Memento all the way, although I love black Color Box for embossing.

Sonya said...

Forgot to say one thing in my 1st post. Love the limited edition Edward and Joseph digi's. Excited about getting them along with last weeks digi that I didn't win. Keep all the great stamps and digis coming; love em, love em, love em. Can't wait until the nest release to see what other great surprises are in store!

Tammy said...

Oh I am loving that chubby bird that Princess Maggie is holding. Super cute.

Memento Ink is my go to when using Copics.

Great card line up!

Kay said...

Princess Maggie is absolutely adorable- I'd love to win this.
Thanks!

Paula Laird said...

I use Memento for line images. Solid images I still use SU unless it's black or brown, those are usually Memento or Palette. I'd like to get some of Memento's colors.

Caroline said...

I got Memento ink when I started using copics. Now it's my favourite!!! :)

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Maggie is too cute! I use Memento for images (to use with copics), versafine if I'm embossing, and Tim Holz distress for most my colored stuff.

margie c said...

I love lil Princess Maggie!

I use Memento Ink too! It's perfect!

Congrats to the winners :)

Enjoy your Monday! ~ margie

Erin said...

It has to be Memento Ink for me.

Roxie said...

It depends on how I am coloring an image. If I am using colored pencils or watercolor pencils I use my CTMH archival permanent ink, but with my copice I use Momento ink.

resmith said...

I use my memento ink, because it doesn't run when I use my copics.
Congrats to the winners! Great cards.

Renie said...

I use memento or versa fine. Also, using momento markers are gret for being creative.

Love the the display today!

jan farnworth said...

i use memento ink in any shade i can find. Then my cat eye quues to ink the edges. love this digi relaly want this digi.

Maylee said...

Memento Ink for me too, sometimes I don't even need to clean the stamp, because it doesn't leave any residue. : )

HazelQ said...

I use memento tuxedo black ink to color images and colorbox and other for the sentiments :)
Very cute cards, thanks for the inspiration and the digi giveaway.
Hugs
Hazel

KJ said...

Definately Memento for stamping & good ol printer ink for my lurvely new Edward & Jacob digis, thanks soooo much for releasing them again :D take care x

Hugs Norma

smashcat said...

Memento its the only one i have found that does not smudge...thanks to a friend introducing me to it...

jennruggeri75 said...

These cards are amazing! I just love the images. I too am a Memento kinda girl!

Big Mamma~ a.k.a. Mary S said...

My vote is in for Memento also but if I am going to emboss my design the Colorbox.

Embossing is great when I want to use my copic.. they hold the color in.

Big Mamma is a stampin in the house.

crafty amy said...

Brilliant card pics and this is such a cute little image I hope she does end up in the shop :D
As for the ink I used I have been the same as you Marie since I was introduced to memento ink I have not looked back.

Amy xx

Marion said...

So good last weeks digi is going in the shop. This weeks is lovely too. My most favourite ink is Memento tuxedo black, close second is Brilliance Graphite black.
Marion

Katt Korpsgryndr said...

I am VERY new to the world of crafting, but have been using SU ink, as well as Ink It Up. However, I'm soon going to switch to Memento. I'm hearing that's a great ink for coloring with Copics! Great digi, so super cute. Have a great week!

SandyPie said...

I'm really new to stamping also (in a don't want it too look like a 4 yo did it, heck they'd probably do better) so I just have lots of other's giveaways. (I just can't do it gentle enough not to smear or double image or hard enough to get the whole image. That's why I do it digi.) So anyway I have a lot of SU and cheap stuff till I can finally get a technique. I like the chalkies and watermark inks alot. oh and Ranger's distressed inks for edging, again, need more practice!

Shaz said...

I love to use Versa-mark and Versa-fine when I stamp for coloring. All the other time I don't care too much what kind of ink I use.

jtomsgirl66 said...

I like Memento ink and Versafine. Love the digi's - too cute!
Jodi

Loz (Aus) said...

Aaawwww, she's divine!! I use Memento Ink too... and just random cheapy coloured ones for my sentiments and edging.

Jenn Borjeson said...

My favorite ink pad is my Versafine Archival Black. :) I'm soooo happy to hear you're putting Rain Rain in the store next week, I want her so badly! :)

marilynprestonn said...

Hi Marie,

I just love those Greeting farm girlies and just enjoyed browsing the site too. I hope I win this little princess. I will make you proud.

Kindly, Peggy

CindyT said...

I started using Memento ink when I started using Copic markers. Love your blog!!

Monika in VA said...

I'm right there with you on the Memento inks ~ I have all the little dew drops & they are used so much more then the SU inks I have... My daughters & I love that cute little bunny!

moccavanila said...

Yay...Congrats to all winner,oh..just can't wait rain seeing on the shop!
Me...memento ink too since I become addicted with TGF stamp :)

sweet craf-tea chick said...

I use an old Marvy Matchables, but looks like I should be trying some Mementos ;p'. Sort of new at stamping and coloring with Copics~always looking for a good stamp pad. Have a great evening!

Krysta said...

I like to use Versafine, Onyx Black and I emboss over top with detail clear. I color with my copics and the images turn out great. I sure loved the lil' Valentine girl you had up on the weekend... TFS!

Nancy said...

Memento is my favorite!

Karrie said...

I have alot of Close To My Heart ink pads, but since I've tried Memories Premium Dye Ink, well it's my fav for now.

AShu93 said...

Thanks for the great digi! I will email you right away.

I like versafine onyx black or memento tuxedo black, whichever I find first.

Natalie "Fifi" said...

Princess Maggie is absolutely adorable- I'd love to win this. Staz on for me.
Thanks!
Hugs Natalie.

Angie said...

Love these cards, so pretty! Yeaaaaa, go HAPPY you put Edward & Joseph back up, I have to get them now!!! Thank you so much!!
My ink of choice is either versafine, momento or Stampin UP.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Yay for re-releasing Edward and Joseph! I need them for Jodi's Twi-day challenges...ha!

And Yay that Rain Rain will be available for the rest of us!!! I LOVE rain and it's coming soon in buckets (so I'm told) here in thirsty dry So Cal.

Wow, is Princess Maggie ever cute!!!! Another winner!!!

Tracy.H said...

Okay...she is just too cute! I mostly use my Memento now, cause I color with my copics so much. But I do still use my SU inks too. :0)

Annie said...

congrats to the winners!
OMG, the creations are super cute!

My answer would be Momento and versamark are my faves :)

Kelly Collins said...

Momento ink for me, when I am coloring with copics. Otherwise I use Stampin Up.
The digi is soooo cute! Love her expression.

Kelly

Aunty Sue said...

Hi i do like memento but fave is Versafine as it gives better detail just need to stamp well in advance or heat set.

Country Mouse said...

I love StazOn ink for all my stamping projects! Love this Princess Magggie image too!!! :)

Sinihilkka said...

Depends what I'm stamping of course. Black Versafine is best, but one can do wonders with VersaMark.

Memento Ink hands down...I love tuxedo black for my digi images! Copics LOVE Memento ink too!

The coolest part of this digi stamp is that my daughter's name is Maggie. This would be so cute on her Valentine cards for school.

Love the wonderful cards... Congrats to all who were chosen.

Hoping to win this wonderful digi, Marilyn in Rainy Texas

Beckie said...

I am new to TGF images and am loving them This Princess is super cute. My fav ink for my Promarkers is Memento but I use Verafine for most other stamping.
