Simon Says Stamp - Pawsitively Saturated Inks, NEW Colors, February 2022



Keep it coming Simon Says Stamp, I adore new inkiness and I strongly suspect that if you are reading this post, then you do too!!!


We got another 5 ink trios in pinky, blue-greeny and especially greeny shades just in time for St. Patrick's card-making! I made you some of my regular swatches and a rather chic project that is not actually about the upcoming festive day.


As mentioned, we have 5 smashing Trios to choose from, each available for $19.99 or you can get the entire bundle of 15 ink pads for $99.99. Click image above, links below or browse the supplies gallery at the end of the post to shop!


I gave them my own little color family names to help me understand where they fit into the spectrum:

Trio 11 (red-pinks)

Trio 12 (raspberry-pinks)

Trio 13 (blue-greens)

Trio 14 (gray-greens)

Trio 15 (emerald-greens)




I'll not miss an opportunity to brag about Simon Says Stamp Blending Brushes which come in large and small sizes work like a charm to gently melt one color into another or just lay down the ink through a stencil.


I will make trio swatches later, which show you an ombre effect of each set of 3 but for now I did the solids and they're so pretty!



Also, after a few months of using the Holder below I'm happy to report that it is quite functional and holds my brush upright and in place with a relatively small footprint on a desktop where there can many things vying for space.


 

When the Pawsitively Saturated Inks first launched I reviewed 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO NOW ABOUT THE NEW PAWSITIVELY SATURATED INK PADS. Today after showcasing the new ink family members, we'll make an easy card using a new Layering Stencil, please check the prior post if you want to delve into observations/information about the inks.


THE 15 NEW COLORS


Trio 11 - Guava, Watermelon, Cherry

Trio 12 - Carnation, Peony, Rose

Trio 13 - Tidepool, Tropic, Aegean

Trio 14 - Aspen, Sage, Pine

Trio 15 - Spring, Dublin, Lucky


I created these swatches as I did the last ones, by gently swiping the ink pad across the surface of the diecut tag from top to bottom until all the paper is inked.


The foam surface of the pad is resilient, but you should treat it kindly. :-) If you don't feel confident about swiping, use your handy blending brushes!



A Brother label maker with 0.25" label tape was used to create the labels.


I'll admit, I was momentarily skeptical about whether I needed this many shades of pink and green, but as you can see the colors are distinct and offer you so many possibilities for your crafting projects.


So let's get to that project!

I will admit that my color choices are inspired by an African-American Sorority (the Alpha Kappa Alphas) and the stripes by Gucci. I think I will have to do another card with their iconic blue and red or red and green stripes! I'm being fancy today Lovelies!



Use a green blending brush to apply the Spring ink on through this stencil after fixing it to the Wendy Vecchi Make Art STAY-tion with the magnets.
