Summer Solstice - Getting Inky



Several months ago we released our So Suzy Ink Bites and I am so tickled with our little inks that we have decided to bring out the reinkers to go with them.  Instead of bringing them all out at once, I thought it would be fun to release a set at a time so we have time to focus on some of the color sets.  Since we are heading into the summer months, I thought it would be perfect to start off with our Summer Solstice set!



If you haven't checked out our Ink Bites, let me introduce you to the fabulous colors making up Summer Solstice!


Reinkers are not simply just for making your ink bites juicy and new again, but you can create so many fun card with all sorts of fun techniques. Justine has a video up on the channel with 7 Ways to use reinkers . The video is sitting in the uploader and should be available in a couple hours for all you early birds - today you are not getting the worm...sorry YouTube is slow ;) 

(Video may not work for a couple hours since it is still uploading)

I have had such a great time playing with these inks and reinkers this past week and I actually got to sit down and make a ton of cards that I don't normally get to!  Plus, Justine and I worked on matching up our favorite embellishments to the inks AND Justine went one step further and created some fabulous cheat sheets for you, which you can find on our website.  She has downloads for:

The downloads are free, so be sure and snag yours and see which embellishments match your favorite Summer Solstice ink.


I made this wonderful card set this past weekend using each of the Summer Solstice inks, my Clarity brushes, Jo's Bubbles stencil, the Fairy with Flower stamp, You're Amazing and coordinating DoubleClick Skittles!  I had such a fun time making these cards and since I rarely get to send out cards, I thought it would be fun to have a contest...or two...possibly three!  

CONTEST ONE
Everyone who orders the Summer Solstice Inks or Reinkers will be entered into a drawing and one lucky person will win the entire set of Fairy Cards made by me!  You must purchase the inks/reinkers by June 30th and we will announce the winner on July 1st.

CONTEST TWO
Why stop there with the prizes though?  I love giving away goodies so why not do up a Link Up Party and give away a $25 Gift Card to So Suzy Stamps?  All you have to do is link up your card using our So Suzy Stamps Ink Bites between now and June 30th.  One winner will be selected and announced on July 1st!  If you don't have any Ink Bites, that's ok!  You have time to order them, get them in your hot little hands and create away!

CONTEST THREE (VIDEO WILL BE AVAILABLE IN A COUPLE HOURS)
I did say that we could possibly have THREE contests going on and who am I leave out the odd number?  This contest is going to be super quick so we don't leave you in suspense and it's going to be super easy!  Simply leave a comment on our video for the Reinkers between now and Thursday and we will announce the winner on Friday!  This way you can get your Reinkers super fast if you are one of the winners!  How cool is THAT?!

I am going to be sharing cards throughout the week on Facebook in our Facebook Group so be sure and join us over there to see some of our favorite color combos.  I am going to be showing off some cards using our reinkers tomorrow.  Woo hoo!

Be sure and enter our contests that are going on and I can't wait to see what you come up with for our Summer Solstice Link Up Challenge!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
