I finally broke down and got them. I do like them especially sometimes I have all the colors I want to use in one place. You have to watch to make sure you pull the color out you are using so it doesnt get in the other colors.

Welcome!! I am sure if you do a search through the gallery you will find some wonderful samples. Cambria has some gorgeous samples with the roses in winter set. That is just one that comes to mind. I have them and love them!

I like to use them for the crinkled chalks. You can see the tutorial under resources. It's really a neat background you can make. I want to get some more colors.
You can also go to the gallery and put in crinkled chalks and see examples.
When I first got mine I didn't know what I would do with them but now I have fun with them.

Thanks for all the great tips. I love that card- the roses in winter one. I guess I just don't understand how to use them. I am so new at this. I have the stampin' pastels and they are great but would you use the petals the same way. For example in that roses card do you versamark the image first and then use the petals? Sorry I am so confused!

If you go to the home page hit contest at the top of the page then hit chalk contest. you will see a ton of cards using these inks. Also if you hit resources it will take you to the techniques page where Beate has posted several techniques using these inks. Good luck. And oh yeah, I love them!

The chalks are actually little ink pads....it's the ink that is different. For instance, some of the lighter colors show up on black. They petal points have several colors in one container. You select which color you want to use and then apply that color to a stamp or even directly onto your paper. No versa mark required (unless it's for a special technique). Hope that helps.

Problem is I can't decide which color combination to get. I want both eventually, but can only buy one right now. So ladies, which should I get? I'm thinking first of using it with flower stamps like Roses in Winter or Burst into Bloom so I am leaning towards the Brights/subtles set, but it's hard to tell from the picture, for example, how the pink and red would work together in the RIW set. Feedback, please!

Just wanted to add also that this ink is actually a hibryd ink. It is a mix of the pigment inks and the dye based inks. This allows the ink to be more opaque, like the pigment inks (which take a little longer to dry), but still have the quick dry time of a dye ink. I haven't used them yet, but many of my starting customers get them because it gives them more color choices for less the money. I am DYING to get a set though!

Just my 2 cents

I bought the Brights/Subtles last month because those colors are more spring and summer like (to me anyway). I would recommend getting that set first just simply because of the time of year.

I got them last month and I am absolutely in love. I got the lighter color SU set. They rock bc you can stamp on top of your bg and it shows up, you can ink on dark CS and it shows up, they go on so smooth and creamy, especially on the ultrasmooth paper. There are lots of colors right there also so I look forward to traveling with them. To use them you pull a petal out of the holder, turn your stamp upside down and ink from the top. Then turn your stamp over and go. So cool looking. The color is even and doesn't leave little 'fabric' lines. I had no idea I would like them so much! (I don't care for the lid bc it's a little hard to put on with one hand... gotta keep working.) I love them so much I think I'll marry them. (Will my other pads be jealous? How about my DH... nah!)

I think the confusing part is because they are called "chalk" pads. They aren't really chalks at all; it's just that the ink leaves a soft, "chalky" looking image when you stamp with it, and, like someone has already mentioned, the lighter colors will show up on darker papers like actual chalk would. Other than the look, there is nothing really "chalky" about them--it's just the name of the special ink that is a hybrid between dye and pigment. It's ink that sits on top of the paper instead of soaking in, like a pigment ink would, but it dries instantly like a dye ink.
