Fresh Florals and Berries Fresh Florals and Berries

Hi everyone! In celebration of National Craft Month, some of your favorite crafty folks are throwing a party with a two week celebratory Instagram Hop.  One follower will win a $50 online gift certificate to shop at Scrapbookcom, sponsors of this wonderful prize. I’ll add a link to my Instagram at the end of this post so you can start the hop! For this hop, I wanted to use a stamp set I’ve had for a while, Fresh Florals and Berries. Lookie:

GOJUS! For this card, I wanted to play with a technique called “Ghosting” done with white pigment ink. I decided to try out’s White Premium Pigment ink pad, and it worked SO well. Fresh Florals and Berries

To do the technique, you stamp with white pigment ink, make sure it’s bone dry (I used my heat tool), and then use a sponge dauber to apply ink over top. I used 3 different colors in the Cyan Group of ink pads. The white pigment ink comes right through! I also used a Tombow blender pen to deepen the color in some areas . I love this look! I cut the stamped piece out with the Nested Banner Flags dies from and stamped it with a sentiment from You and Me Quotes and Sayings from another stamp set. Fresh Florals and Berries

I strip of Doodlebug Design Floral-Graph Rainbow Petite Prints paper, a couple of tiny heart sprinkles from the same company, and some pretty blue ribbon from May Arts make the perfect accents for this clean and simple card. The Fresh Florals and Berries set can be used in so many fun techniques!

Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC,, Gina K, Hallmark Scrapbook, My Favorite Things, Sizzix, and Blick Art Supplies.

If you head to my Instagram, Jan_Tink, you can see a complete list of hoppers!


Enjoy! Ta!

  • Hi Jan!

    I loved your card, so decided to try using SU craft white pigment ink. Then I sponged distress oxides on it, after it was dry. The White did not show through at all. Just took on the color of the oxides. I am still happy with it, but was wondering why? Thanks for posting this!


    • I didn’t use Distress Oxides over the top of the white pigment so I’m guessing they don’t work for this technique. The are hybrid inks but regular dye inks should work too. And you want to kind of buff them on when you apply and even lightly buff with a dry paper towel to remove any excess to get the white ink to show through.
