Default Brown Stamp Pad

Can anyone recommend a "true" brown stamp pad? I need one for an upcoming class (I think we are using it to ink the edges of scrapbook paper applied to wooden letters). The browns I have seem to have a red tint to them. I've checked my local craft stores and they seem to skip over the color brown.

TIA!!

Default brown ink pads

Have you tried any of the distress ink pads? I'm thinking of Walnut in particular as that is what I use to age/distress paper.

Have you tried Chocolate Chip. I use this one all the time.

Nick Bantock's Van Dyke Brown (the outer case is metal) is a good brown -- I've used it a lot for edge detailing and distressing. Palette Hybrid Ink Pad in Burnt Umber by Stewart Superior is another good one. HTH!

I am a super huge fan of SU's basic brown. I have not noticed that it has a red tint to it. I use it for virtually everything. A couple weeks ago when I was organzining my stamp pads I realized that I wasn't using my black stamp pad at all!

Default Thanks

Thanks for the info....

Daisy:
I have seen the distress inks but haven't used them yet. Wasn't sure which color to get and if it would really look brown.

Patti:
Chocolate Chip sounds yummy! LOL! Who makes this color?

Kelly:
Where can I buy these that you recommend?

StampinSweeney:
Just located a local SU rep so this is a great option.

I've seen the Nick Bantock inks at places like Joann's, Hobby Lobby and Michael's. The Palette inks I've seen at stamp stores, through a TAC rep and online (Blockhead Rubber Stamps has a huge selection of the Palette inks).

HTH!

Stampin' Up! makes the Chocolate Chip - and there's a lighter one called Close to Cocoa - both are really good. Basic Brown is also by SU and it's waterproof (meant for outline stamps so you cancolor the images w/out the lines bleeding).

Tim Holtz makes the Distress Inks - I have the Walnut and really like it -I find that SU's browns are more the shade I want most of the time tho.

HTH!!

I love the CTMH Coca ink color alot! It's a very dark rich brown plus I love the Vintage Photo Distress ink, it's got a yellow undertone to it.

You did not specify the location of the class you are teaching so . . .

Chocolate Chip Classic (Dye), and Craft (Pigment) is manufactured by Stampin' Up! and not available for purchase in retail stores, but only through SU! demonstrators.

If you're teaching in a retail establishment, they would not be "happy" (understatement) if you featured SU! ink pads in your class (competing product that they cannot sell).

If that is the case, I would strongly advise you to use a brown that IS available for retail store owners to carry and stock in their store for resale purposes.

I love Colorbox Fluid Chalk Dark Brown--beautiful, dark rich tone.

Jumbo Java Versamagic Chalk Ink by Tsukineko is also a nice brown.

There is also Coffee Bean Brilliance by Tsukineko.

I think it was Ranger that used to make a lovely "Art Print" brown???? But, I've had that pad for so long, I can't recall if they still make it.

HTH,

Default Hi Julie!

I'm not teaching a class but rather I'll be a student in a class at the CKC in Charlotte. So, not a problem with competing products.

The Coffee Bean Brillance pad is one that I do have but it, IMHO, has a lot of red in it. It's a muddy brown, I guess you would say. That is the ONLY brown color any of my local craft stores carry. Luckily, I do have a SU Demo now so I can order from her, another company demo or from an online source.

Thanks for info!!

Nick Bantock Van Dyke Brown is my all time favorite. No red undertone whatsoever. I posted this very question 3-4 years ago on another board and got the recommendation for this pad, bought it, and never looked back...it's the best!

Oooh, I love the daisies in your avatar--pardon the mini-jack! They just made me happy to look at!

And, Heather--thank you!!! I couldn't recall if it was Ranger or Memories by Stewart Superior! It's a great brown!!!
