I really like black ink on Chocolate Chip. Did it for my friend/downline's DH's bday. He really liked it, she LOVED it.

I also like the same color ink on the same color cs.

What is this? Are you trying to drive me insane? I have my paisley and am stamping happily along and now there are all sorts of different colour combos I have to try. There aren't enough hours in the day to properly appreciate this stamp. I do love using it with my Cool Cat set.

Try Pink Passion Craft ink over Only Orange!!! WOWZA! The photo I uploaded earlier using it doesn't do it justice, I'm afraid.

Only Orange Craft over Summer Sun is also eye-poppin'!

Try Bliss Blue or Blush Blossom on Vanilla--just soft and sweet when done with Classic Ink.

Try Baroque Burgundy over Real Red--VERY RICH!

I also did Craft White on Real Red--Ooooooooh!

Also, try Old Olive over Sage Shadow--unexpected and LOVED it!

I plan on trying Close to Cocoa over Bliss Blue and Pretty in Pink first chance I get . . . I'm fairly certain I will not be disappointed!

Yep, I'm going to have to try that....it sounds juicy!!!



I am compiling a list of all the color combos in order......yes,I know, I'm annal.
I will post on the original post and keep it updated.

Thanks everyone for sharing. The forest foliage on magenta that I posted...was found by accident. I had inked up the paisley with forest and was going to ink another color. But I dropped it and it fell on magenta. EUREKA!! it looked great! So great, that I used the color combo in a swap.

Thanks for posting all the color combos in a list!

I wonder if they had decided to keep this stamp out of the new catty and are now regretting that decision. I for one hope it stays especially since the fabulous artists here are cranking out some hits for us to CASE.

What's up with the CRAFT pink passion on only orange? Will the classic pad not do the same? But I don't have the craft pad

Craft pad gives you way richer color than the classic would. I have gotta go CASE julie's tonight! Forget making Easter baskets! There's STAMPING to do!

I don't have paisley - YET - but has anyone tried the chalk inks? I just got them and love them, just wondering what they would look like with paisley?

How about stamping on vellum in black and then coloring the back side with markers. Can't wait to try that.
