I'm not sure I actually bought any black ink, actually. But I sure bought a lot of ink. Oh yes indeed.
On Friday I finally got fed up of wanting the Colorbox Deep Sea and Night Sky pigment ink "queues". So I searched around until I found someplace that actually had both of them in stock -- Frantic Stamper -- and ordered them. I also ordered a re-inker for my bronze inkpad; I hadn't been able to order one from Scrapbooking Warehouse last week for the very simple reason that they didn't have one.
Frantic Stamper haul:
Sweet Pea Stamps was having a pretty insane sale, so I ordered some stamps I've been eyeing. Various faries:
And of course some dragons! Although I guess the seahorse isn't technically a dragon. It's more dragon-ish than fairy-ish, that's for sure.
I also found this stamp in my order, a bonus stamp. I think it's ching chou kuik's "One and Only Heart". It's going into my "perfectly good things that just aren't my style" box, which is why I haven't inked it up.
I'm very pleased with my interaction with Sweet Pea Stamps; Lynette ran out of cushion mounting before she got to my order, so she emailed me to ask whether I wanted to wait or get the stamps with a refund for the cushion. I very much appreciate having choice; obviously, I chose the stamps!
On Sunday, Joann.com had a 50% sale on inkpads and ink. So I bought them.
My box came this morning. In the box was a sack:
Spilling that bag out over the carpet was really satisfying.
In it were a bunch of Colorbox queues I didn't have:
And rather a lot of re-inkers, metallics and non-metallics:
What can I say? 50% for reinkers is a really good price for ink, and I do seem to be using it.
I also went ahead and ordered some mini VersaMark and VersaFine pads. I'm looking forward to trying them out.
Joann.com Ink Haul:
Yesterday I took a trip to the brick and mortar Joann. I was looking for some blue cardstock.
So I bought a VersaMarker,
and a reinker for my Perfect Medium pad (mostly because, hey, reinker)!
I also came away with a ribbon holder for mini ribbon spools. I don't intend to put ribbon in it, though -- partly because my cat would eat all the ribbon. I have a different plan.
An awesome ink queue holder plan!
Joann mini haul:
Then, finally, I went to Michael's and actually bought some blue cardstock. Mission accomplished!
How about you, did you make any massive purchases over the Spending Weekend?
