by Altenew

Trailblazing Inks Blog Hop Newsletter

Hello, crafty friends! We are so thrilled to introduce Altenew’s NEW round dye inks! Say hello to our Trailblazing Fresh Dye Ink Pads!

The high-viscosity dye inks (slightly different from our existing dye ink) are rich and vibrant and will stamp perfectly alongside other Altenew inks in your collection. The modern and minimalist round ink cases feature a felt pad and were custom-designed with YOU – the crafter – in mind. All it takes is a simple twist to open the lid, and you’ll be ready for your next crafty project!

Trailblazing Fresh Dye Inks

Fun Fact!

“[Trailblazing] has a dual meaning since the color families (Blue Mountains, Frosted Foliage, Woodland Escape) make me think of a hiking trail. But it is also “trailblazing” since the round containers are innovative and not seen anywhere else.” – Jennifer Rzasa, Product Development Team

Altenew's Product Development Team collaborated with some amazing partners who spent two years creating a mold and getting the round case right. Our goal has always been to provide high-quality and one-of-a-kind paper crafting supplies to inspire YOUR creativity. With these redesigned dye inks, stamping is easier than ever. The water-based and highly-saturated round dye ink pads have everything you LOVED about our original Oval Ink Pads and MORE!

Easy Twist Lids!

Isn't it frustrating when you break a sweat just to open your ink pads? Have you ever attended a crafting event and realized you've got a loose ink pad in your bag? Say goodbye to these crafty mishaps! Our new round dye inks feature an easy twist lid with some markers that will help you “lock” the ink pad to avoid inky situations.

Definitely the blues! The Alpine Aster & Crystal Violet new round ink pads are stunning.

I also like the shades of browns to continue adding products that allow crafters from all over the world to match skin & hair colors! Beautiful combination.

Gorgeous colors! I already have the full set of the crisp dye inks, but I have to say I love these additional colors. I do wish they had a color label on the side as well, it would be very helpful when they are stacked! Loving the new flower dies with the keyholes. Must haves!!

Carrie November 14, 2022 - 13:20

I wasn’t going to try these but after watching Jennifer Mcguires video I definitely am. As someone who cannot get an ink organizer due to my location. I LOVE that they stack. That is awesome. Definitely wish the sides were the color of the ink instead of white. A design flaw. Maybe consult Jennifer next time with beta samples before signing off. I have not been into small layering die cuts but with the keyhole method and numbering system I am going to try also. I really appreciate the thought that goes into designs and quality of Altenew products.

Reply
Altenew November 14, 2022 - 16:12

Hope the keyhole method helps! Enjoy, Carrie!

I love your new dye ink colours and am looking forward to trying them all. I also want to thank you for all the extra effort you put into your layering dies. I have the early ones, but really need to get some of your new ones.

Jami November 14, 2022 - 14:04

I love the colors of the original pads, but I don’t necessarily like that it’s difficult to get full coverage on the first stamp application. That being said, I want to try the cubes first. I love the idea of the easier lid! I use a tool to get my ink pads open most of the time. I’m probably gonna kick myself for not getting the full size inks… I am excited to try the new colors!

Reply
Altenew November 14, 2022 - 16:04

I was going to start to buy inks for my first set. When Jennifer said she bought them for her mother-in-law, I figured that was also good for me as a beginner! Combined with those gorgeous layered die cuts, this will be great!
