This is my first time using Altenew inks and I love them. The colors are sharp and crisp and it makes things stand out on the card. I have already used your layering dies and the inks and closely matched color bundles are amazing. Quality is first class. Will submit picture when I finish with the card I am making.
The vibrancy of the ink colors are exceptional! I am just getting into card making so I wanted to get the mini cubes to jump start my color collection and also be fiscally responsible. This set is perfect for that! You get 4 color bundles with each bundle including 4 coordinating colors. I like this because it helps me layer stamps or stick to a color scheme on a project. The lids are very secure on the ink pads, almost too secure, because I can sometimes have difficulty getting the lids off without my finger ending up in the ink pad. The ink pads are made of felt which is more solid and helps the stamp get ink. This also helps prevent the parts of the stamp that do not need ink from getting ink on them (like foam ink pads so often do) and ruining my project. I really enjoy the felt pads. I have a Misti tool so I always stamp the image at least two times for full coverage.
A few of my ink pads were drier than expected in a brand new set. I spent $150 on ink pads to start my collection and I was NOT expecting to need the re-inkers immediately after purchasing new ink pads. This is one negative of this product and why it received 4 starts and not 5.
I would highly recommend the colors for quality and vibrancy. I would caution buyers to also consider getting the re-inkers when purchasing. This can drastically increase the cost of the ink initially.
This is a selection of good colors in the mini ink pads. These stamp well, though usually need to be restamped to fill in. I like the shades of the same color.
Beautiful colors. Very crisp. Easily blendable.
The colours are fantastic in these little ink pads. They work beautifully with the stamps. I love all of the different shades and they are different from any other company’s colours so I haven’t duplicated any. The lids are hard to get off the little containers though.
