I ended up with a Brocade Color Box Petal Point pad. And, while I am super happy that I got it, it's not really my color style.
Don't get me wrong, I can remember using gold and other colors years ago to stamp my Garfield and Lisa Frank stamps, but I'm more of a neutral or bright colored girl now. I took a look at my stamps, and I have TGF, Amy Tangerine and some more trendy stamps...and I LOVE Lawn Fawn, so I am amassing a collection of those.

This is the pad

Any ideas, stamping peas? Might there be hope that I can use this???
Thanks, in advance.

I think that the metallic ink pads look good on holiday or wedding projects.

You could always swipe the colors on card stock and make background papers with it.

I wonder if they would work well with this technique.

I think sentiments look nice sometimes with a metallic inks. The colors in your pedal inks have a nice range of basic colors to possibly match any color scheme in your cards OR page layout.

Also you could ink the edges of cards or the mattings for sentiments, etc with the metallic ink. Might give it a "fancy" effect.

I would stamp and then clear emboss with those inks and I bet they look gorJUSS!
Kind of like this card set. Love the colors in your ink set!

Well I'd definitely recommend using these inks to spark up 'neutral' & mess with 'bright'.

Based on what the link shows me, these are not strong metallics so they won't overwhelm a piece.

One of my faves lately is to use metallic to highlight embossed images. I think that would work with the stamp images you current favor & add subtle pizazz to your LOs, cards & such.

BTW. Nicetoseeya. Been a while...

I want to try Anne's idea. I have never thought of embossing with a metallic ink before. Daria's project is beautiful too!

I have some of those color box metallic inks and I've used them a lot. One of the things they work really well for, for me, is to stamp insect images (dragonflies or butterflies for instance) and then clear emboss.
They give a nice, but subtle metallic sheen that mimics the iridescence some of those insects have IRL.
