Color Palette of 40 Colors!
Our color palette now includes 40 colors plus White Daisy and Colonial White. The core of the palette was determined based on trends, sales, and how each color fits into the spectrum overall. The colors are now divided into four groups of ten plus white daisy and colonial white. The two whites are available in cardstock, inkpads, and re-inkers and all of the additional colors are also available in markers and in sets of NEW pigment inks!

New Pigment Inks
-Available in sets of ten mini-pigment cubes- one collection for each color group.
-Use our new stamp scrubber to clean the pigment ink off your stamps.
-Takes time to dry or “set.”  Can use the heat tool to speed drying, or with clear or color embossing powders. 
-Looks great when used to distress paper edges – creates unique, soft and smooth look
- When stamping an image that doesn’t quite match our paper, use the ink to completely cover a lighter shade paper to match stamped images.  For instance, rub the edge of one of the papers used to layer or rub pad over Cricut image to match stamped papers – creating your own new color!
