Nearly 5 years ago when I began learning about stamping one of the first things I searched for was a "go to" ink company. Being new to pretty much everything stamp related I was slightly overwhelmed by all of the varieties and formulas of inks available. I knew I wanted something that would not only worked with a variety of stamps and techniques but also came in a wide array of colors. In my search I think I must have I tried practically every ink brand on the market. Once I found Clearsnap (Colorbox) inks, my search was pretty much over. I found inks that worked well with clear stamps, red rubber and pretty much any technique I came across. Not only did Clearsnap meet my needs they are made in the USA, always a plus in my book. Since then I have collected pretty much every ink (and about every other product) that Clearsnap makes--everything from the now retired Ancient page and Vivid inks to the Archival and Fluid Chalk inks. If you look on my blog you will almost always find I have used Clearsnap. I am especially excited about the variety of ink formulas available from Clearsnap since my stamp line through Gina K Designs is now available in both clear and red rubber--it works great with either! In addition to dye, pigment, chalk and watermark watermark inks, Clearsnap also carries Smooch accent inks and sprays, Rollagraph stamp wheels, glitter, foils, Design Adhesives and embossing powders (including scented!).
Several years after I began using Clearsnap inks I was blessed to be able to get to know those who work behind the scenes better due to some publication work I did for CardMaker. I have to say, this is a company with representatives that are just as wonderful as the product they stand behind. They are supportive, knowledgeable and prompt to respond. I have told many people of my fondness of the inks and the company itself, including the designers I work with on the CPS sketch blog design team and Tami Mayberry Stamps design team. A few months ago Clearsnap agreed to sponsor both of those teams so these ladies could get to know their inks better as well. I've heard many praises about not only the products but the company as a whole.
Today I've invited the designers from both my stamp design team and the CPS team to join me in a blog hop using both my stamps and Clearsnap products so they could personally share with you their thoughts and projects using the products. Yep, no standard blog blurb provided on this one. They were simply given the hop list, logos and links. :) Be sure and visit the blogs below to see their designs and what they have to say.
Also, you'll want to leave comments along the way because I will be giving away some Clearsnap products and some Tami Mayberry Stamps to one person who does so you can try them for yourself. If you want to know more about Clearsnap, when you are done hopping you can also visit the Clearsnap blog and Clearsnap Fan Page.
