Let’s start things off with our cardstock:
TE Premium Cardstock is ideal for all types of paper crafting, with the perfect blend of durability and flexibility needed to make cards, crafts and more. This high quality cardstock coordinates with TE Premium Ink for easy matching and sophisticated tone-on-tone designs.
Emily Mydlowski put together several of the new and older cardstock colors (Tropical Punch, Rose Water, Guava, Pineapple, Blue Raspberry, Macaron, and Dried Fig) cut out with the Easy Strips – 1/2″ die to create a striped background for this thinking of you card. The floral frame from the Fancy Florets stamp set is embossed in white on vellum, layered over the background, and framed with a Sugar Cube Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 die cut. The ‘thinking of you’ sentiment from the On Occasion stamp set is embossed in gold and Emily sprinkled a few Bits & Pieces – Gold Drip Drops around it for a finishing touch.
Heather Nichols combined a few of the new cardstock colors with her signature Toffee cardstock to create this pretty floral card. The flowers are cut out from Rose Water, Banana Cream Pie, and Macaron cardstock with the Layer It – Daisy die collection. The leaves are cut out using one of the Branch Out dies from Toffee cardstock and Heather added texture to the card background with the Diamonds Piercing Plate.
Here’s a look at our different ink options:
TE Premium Ink is acid-free, fade-resistant and fast-drying, so it is ideal for all types of stamping and paper crafting. Made in the USA, our ink is specially formulated to provide superior coverage and comes in all the shades of our TE Premium Cardstock to ensure reliable matching and sophisticated tone-on-tone results.

Jill Hawkins created a mod style background on this snarky card with the Roundabout stencil. She stenciled the design with Tropical Punch, Dijon, Oyster, Rose Water, and Sweet Potato Pie inks. After adding a few ink splatters and her signature stitching, Jill added sentiment strips to the card design from the Simple Strips – Snarky stamp that are embossed in white on Oreo cardstock and cut out with the Simple Strips die.
This sweet floral Mini Slim card was created by Jen Shults with the Flower Patch Background stamp and coordinating stencils. She stamped the floral design with Oreo Ink and added color using the stencils with Banana Cream Pie, Avocado, Macaron, and Passion Fruit inks. The ‘thank you’ sentiment from the On Occasion stamp set is embossed in white on Toffee cardstock and added to a vellum strip across the floral background.
Melody Rupple created a trio of floral cards with the Triple Slim – In the Garden Layering Stencil set. The layers are stenciled with Rose Water, Banana Cream Pie, Macaron, Dried Fig, Lime Zest, and Tropical Punch inks to create the floral background and then Melody added sentiments from the On Occasion stamp set stamped in coordinating colors. Bits & Pieces – White Rhinestones are sprinkled across the card designs for a touch of sparkle.
And finally here are a few products for swatching the new colors and labeling your full-size ink pads (and more!):
Swatch out your favorite color combinations with our TE color collection using our new swatching products. The Swatch Out stamp set includes 6 different shapes perfect for showing off our ink colors onto the True Ink-spiration cards and then add the color names stamped with the Clearly Crafty True Colors stamp set.
Noriko Fairchild created a swatch card for the color combination that she used to created this pair of cards: Banana Cream Pie, Rose Water, Passion Fruit, and Chocolate Truffle. The card on the left features a background that Noriko created by swiping mini ink cubes across a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. The card on the right features a color blocked design that Noriko created by piecing the cardstock colors together and embossing them with the Graphic Impressions – Birthday embossing folder. Both cards include sentiments from the On Occasion stamp set.
Kavya used the same color combination for both of these floral cards: Passion Fruit, Tropical Punch, Peapod, Honey, and Sweet Potato Pie. The card on the left is stenciled with one of the floral backgrounds from the Triple Slim – In the Garden Layering Stencil set – I love how Kavya used it on the bottom half of an A2 card! The card on the right features the Spring Spray stamp. The florals are colored with Copic markers and layered onto a Passion Fruit card base. Kavya colored the die cut edges with a Copic marker to match the background and added highlight details with a white gel pen.
The new Label It Full-Size Ink Pad Stickers include our full ink color collection and are designed to label and organize your ink pads – you can also use the stickers to label cardstock files as well! The Label It Full-Size Ink Pad Stickers are sized to fit the end of your TE Premium Ink – Full Size Ink Pads.
