New Happenings

IndigoBlu has arrived from England!!! Inky Hot Mess is proud to offer several rubber stamps from IndigoBlu. Their stamps are designed and made in England. Exquisite doesn't begin to describe their designs! Such detail.

In addition to the rubber stamps from IndigoBlu, we also have their FlitterGlu started kit and several Mega Flakes. FlitterGlu is all about foiling with your rubber stamps!

Sounds difficult, right? Nope! It's a piece of cake with the FlitterGlu Starter Kit. The kit comes with the FlitterGlu, container to hold your Mega Flakes, a large jar of Mega Flakes, a glue pad, a palette knife, a scrubber, and instructions.

Simply stamp the FlitterGlu on your rubber stamp instead of ink. Then stamp your image.

Cover the glue stamped image with your choice of Mega Flakes. Yup, it's supposed to look like a hot mess! Don't worry. We will fix this.

Using the little scrubber that comes in the FlitterGlu Starter Kit, gently scrub the foil off into the storage container. This goes very quickly. Viola! You have now foiled!!

Be sure to visit Inky Hot Mess! We have a ton of new products. Many new items have arrived this week including school, Halloween, and autumn paper crafting goodies. We will start putting out Christmas and winter items this week as well.

Saturday Demo

Today at Inky Hot Mess, we are having a special demo with IndigoBlu! This week their stamps arrived in our store along with their FlitterGlu collection.

Who's IndigoBlu? What's IndigoBlu? IndigoBlu is a rubber stamp company from England!!! They actually called our store and wanted to be in our shop.....It's not everyday England calls us. So after a lovely chat, I had to investigate their products. Woweeeeee!

We now have several rubber stamps from IndigoBlu including flowers, scenery, trees, Christmas, and winter. We also have the FlitterGlu Starter Kit and a couple colors of the Mega Flakes.

Today we have an IndigioBlu FlitterGlu demo. This stuff is like magic! Love metallics? Love foiling? Love bling? Love sparkle? Love spectacular? Then you are going to absolutely looooove FlitterGlu!

The stamp we used for the demo is Dinkie Snowflake Bauble. It's gorgeous. No other words are necessary.

This is a multistep process. We started off with a dark blue cardstock that we cut down to 4"x4".

Next, we stamped the FlitterGlu onto the Snowflake Bauble Rubber Stamp from IndigoBlu. Then we stamp the cardstock.

We took the cardstock and placed it into the Mega-Flake tray. And we sort of squished the Mega-Flakes all over the stamped image.

Then you take this little scrubber and rub the stamped image and you end up with this amazing foiled stamped image. So perfect for Christmas cards!!!! There are multiple colors of foil in the jar of Mega-Flakes I used so it won't leave am image all the same color behind. I can't wait to do this with more stamps!

New Happenings

I feel bad for our poor UPS man. He's been delivering tons of big boxes to us! He just might be my new BFF. Do you remember that feeling you had when you were about 5 years old and you'd go down stairs and see the Christmas tree and the millions of presents (maybe it just looked like millions) when you woke up Christmas morning? That's the feeling I get when a box magically appears. It's amazing experiencing that every week....sometimes multiple times a week!

This week the man in brown brought us a ton of stamps and stencils! We have loads of new rubber stamps from Tim Holtz, Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi, and Dyan Reaveley's Dyslusions. New releases are also now available!

Inky Hot Mess has a display of autumn and winter holiday and seasonal rubber stamps and stencils from Tim Holtz. Many of there were announced last month and we already have them!

We have several background rubber stamps form Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi. There are great for cards, journals, scrapbook pages, and mixed media creations.

Did someone mention stencils? We have a few in stock. Lots of them from Tim! We were out of several and they have been restocked and we added a bunch of others. We have added several from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi to the mix as well.

The brand new, Fall Issue of Rubber Stamp Madness is now available!

We have 3 colors of the Pinwheel Attachments in stock. We have Fuchsia, Lemon, and Aqua. The Pinwheel Punch Board is also available as well as the Envelope Punch Board and the Banner Punch Board. We have a Pinwheel Workshop on August 29th using the Pinwheel Attachments and the Pinwheel Punch Board.

Those are the new goodies I have to share today. There will be lots more goodies this week!
