Card Making 101 – Black Inks

Hello Crafters and welcome to the first post in my ongoing card making 101 series. In this series I will be sharing the basics for crafting and card making including some fun techniques, my personal favourite products and what I use them for and lots of tips and tricks along the way. Now if you are already a super duper expert crafter then this series probably isn’t for you however you might find yourself learning things you didn’t know you didn’t know.

Todays topic is Black ink, which ones to buy and when to use them. I decided to pull out all of my black inks and experiment with them so hopefully you can understand what each ink is good for and how to decide which one to use for your projects.

I have a video showing how I put together my table along with some additional information so do check that out below or by clicking here if you are reading this via email.  I’ve also added a Pro / Cons list for each ink below.

I have USA and UK suppliers (where possible) for the inks listed and linked below. I hope you have found this useful and I hope to see you again soon.


  1. Yes! she is. Crafty. Cool, I’m gonna watch the video. It’s a shame we have all these different inks. But then again, it’s nice to have what works when you need it. Thanks, for the series! Denise
