In an order on its way to me I am also trying their Hybrid Black Licorice for coloring with Copics. I've been seeing over and over how you get beautiful, crisp images, more so than Memento which is what I've been using for years. Can't wait to try it out!
Yes, the large congratulations stamp and background stamp are my 2 favorites. It will be a lot of fun to play with!
I have the MFT Black Licorice and it's wonderful for coloring with Copics, you will love it!! I don't have other MFT pads, mostly because I have every PTI color and so I'm pretty well covered with colors. I was getting to the point though where I was frustrated with the PTI inks because I didn't always get a solid image, but now that I have a MISTI that's not an issue anymore (thank goodness!) I'm a bit of an inkaholic and would own tons more if I could afford to (and had the room to store them). I'd love to have a wide spectrum of every color so I could match papers perfectly no matter the project

I've never really had a lot of differnt colors of inks besides distress inks which I love but lately I've been wanting more crisper images for things and that is where the dye inks have been so perfect for me. Yes, I too would have tons more if I could but I need to restrain myself! Next week I start a new job and go back to full time so I will have limited time not to mention the amount of stuff that needs more love
The MISTI definately stand up to her name doesn't she? Best tool I've ever purchased!!I cannot live without her!!

Hi, Diane! I haven't subscribed to the kits, but I sometimes buy the stamp set. It does seem like a good value, but I know I wouldn't use most of the paper. I'm a bit of a paper hoarder already. Your cards are beautiful, by the way.

[QUOTE=djaquay;20942564]I loved last months too and used up every bit of it! Here's a link to some of the cards I made with it if you want to take a peek:

It's all about the ART!: Simon Says Stamp March 2015 card kit

I took a peek and I love them!!! TFS

I also Have a Question, I would love to hear How any of you ladies organize your kits?

I starting using SSS kits in Feb of 2014 and everyone of them is still in there boxes. I would like to organize better. Because they are taking up to much room. Thank you

Since I tend to use most of my kit up each month when I get it I don't have much of a storage issue. Until I'm ready to use a kit I just keep it in the box it came in. When I've used most of a kit up I incorporate what's left (the stamp set, an ink pad, washi tape, whatever came in that particular kit), into my regular stash/storage system. I have a box for card stock scraps and patterned paper scraps and any paper goes in there. To be honest I don't think I've ever had an card stock left over from any kit because that gets used up when I make my cards.

I still haven't opened up the May kit (YIKES!), although I really want to have at it, I've just been very busy lately. I'm LOVING the look of the June kit (saw peeks on Instagram), brights are my favorite!!

Wow! Wish I had found this link sooner. Anyway...I sub to SSS, Hero Arts, and Paper Pumpkin. SSS is usually right on with all the stamps and products. I have had a couple of kits that are challenging me. Hero Arts for me is the deluxe kit. Super stamps, dies galore and ink! Papers are super and theirs lots of variety. Pap Pumpkin is different than the previous two. It's simpler and meant to be easy and completed in 30 minutes. I guess I'm too slow. LOL! I've only been really stymied on one kit and didn't care for it. However, lots of SU blogs post other ideas than what you were given in the kit. It really can stretch you talents and imaginations. PP kits are $19.95. If you go to www.paperpumpkin.com you can order their kits. They are separate from the SU with the demonstrators. You don't need a demonstrator to order these. I also look for inspiration of all kits on PINTEREST, blogs, kit sites etc. It's all great fun!
