Video: Color Ink Charts and a Giveaway!



Hello! You asked for it, you got it! I created a pdf color chart ALL my viewers/readers that can use to organize both your ink pads and cardstock colors, just print and stamp (or adhere paper scraps). I show you two ways to stamp your chart, plus tips for what order to stamp them in and how to fix if you mess up a square! ( Don't start over! I did fix the ocean mist after filming!)  This is a great way to see all the beautiful colors in Gina's line, and how the inks lighten just a bit upon drying. You will reference this again and again when purchasing, creating a project, choosing a color palette, or finding a coordinating marker. Thanks for watching today and enjoy the free pdf!

Thank you so much! Can't wait to stamp all my colors!

Sharon Fontenot said...

Thanks for thinking of a way to organize my inks. The only thing that is as much fun as making cards is organizing the materials we use to make them. I think I prefer B.

carmel schupka said...

So many beautiful colors. This is really a very useful tool to see all the colors that are available. I prefer B. Thank you.

Becky said...

Great .pdf chart. I think the stamped off chart would be the most useful. Thanks.

Hi Rosemary said...

I really like your idea. I prefer the chart A. Didn't realize how much the colors change with the second and third stamping.
Thanks for the print out.

Debbie said...

Great video, Melanie. I actually see the value of having both A and B depending on the project that I would be doing. Thank you,for the,pdf file. I certainly will be using that file.

Julie Pluemer said...

Thank you. I prefer A.

Bridget said...

Appreciate the color chart! I'd prefer the full strength chart (B)

duchessmel said...

As always, Melanie, this is a terrific video! Informative and fun at the same time! I like both color charts, but I think I'd rather have A; if I'm going to do one myself, I'll probably take the lazy way out and do B. 😀

juliebrus said...

Thank you so much for designing the color chart. While beggars can't be choosers, I would pick the solid colored images. I absolutely love your stamps and your videos. Keep 'em coming!

Betty McDougal said...

Love the pdf and would like A stamped off version.

Patti R, WPB, FL said...

Thank you for sharing a great tip for everyone Melanie.

I would like to wind Chart A because it is easy to see the different shades of each color and I like using the stamp off method for many of my creations.

Good Luck to everyone!

Marilyn Shannon said...

Thanks so much for the chart. I now want to get the rest of the colors so my chart will be totally filled in!! I like the B format the best.

Sharon said...

Oh Melanie, I love your videos. You have so much to teach us. Thank you! I must get that charcoal brown--you're right it is elegant. I love the A chart---what a difference in the generational colors and your great suggestion of how to begin your collection of ink pads.

Judy Woodland said...

Thanks so much for doing this pdf file, I have thought about making one for a long time but I'm just that lazy! I think the idea of the triple generation stamping is very helpful, so I chose that as my favorite.

Nikki said...

I always enjoy your videos. Thanks for the pdf. My choice would be A.

Donna Knipfer said...

Hi Melanie,
I like the stamped off (A). I like the different color shades. Great video. Thanks.

Heather said...

Thank you so much for the chart and congratulations to your previous winner! Although I will do both A & B for my own stamp room, I really like the stamping off - A - because then you may be able to use a different cardstock or design papers to match based on the darker or lighter color of ink.

Hi Melonie! Is there any chance you could put out a pdf of the colored inks? I would like a complete list so I know what I need to buy to complete my collection. Kindest regards, Jane Crisci
