Creative fun with Electro Pop Neon Ink

Last weekend I went on an annual retreat to the Rockin R Ranch in Temple, Texas. It is always a fun and creative four days spent with friends and fellow crafters. My goal for the retreat was to play with some new products that I hadn’t had a chance to bust out yet. One of those was Rina K’s Electro Pop Neon ink. Once I opened it, I couldn’t put it down! This stuff is awesome. It stamps a beautifully bright, solid image in just one stamp.

Wow, this ink is so FUN!

I used the Gina K Main Squeeze stamp set for this set of cards. “Find the Sweet” Lemon card was my first attempt. I paired it with patterned paper from Close to My Heart and Spellbinders Candlewick Rectangle dies. The lemons are stamped in Hello Yellow, Leaves in Screaming Green. I went around the bottom edge of the lemons with Catherine Pooler’s Sauna ink just to give some definition between the lemons. I finished it off by stamping the sentiment is black with clear heat embossing.

Look how solid that Hello Yellow ink stamps!

For the “Main Squeeze” Orange card I stamped the oranges with Orange glow ink on the bottom and The Stamp Market’s Melon ink on top. I used clear heat embossing on the top layer to give it a juicy glisten. The papers are Vicky Boutin and the label die is from Darcie’s. I created the orange blossoms and leaves from random stamps and dies I could borrow from fellow crafters. I thought the blossoms finished the card off nicely. (Thanks for the idea!)

I clear embossed the inside of the orange to give it a juicy look

I made the final fruity card with all the leftover fruit I had pre-stamped. The strawberries are stamped in Poppin pink and Screaming green. The seeds are stamped in Lawn Fawn Yeti white and clear embossed. I used Closet to My Heart patterned paper and an Elizabeth scalloped Rectangle die. The sentiment came from my new Catherine Pooler club Sursee set.

I thought I bought all the Neon inks, but somehow I missed the Red, so Poppin Pink Strawberries instead. I’ll add the red soon.

I was finished with the fruit, but not with these awesome inks! On a whim I pulled out an older Simon Says Stamp club set called Amazing. I already had three white A2 panels cut so I just started randomly stamping the circle shapes in various neon colors. I’m telling you, these inks are super fun. I wanted to heat emboss the sentiment in bright colors so I covered my versa ink stamped sentiment with what I thought was Wow bright blue powder, it turned out to be glitter instead and totally messed up when I tried to heat it. OOps, Luckily I was able to wipe it off and had a do over using the Hot pink embossing powder. For the next two, I went back to black. I didn’t think the pink showed up well enough on the neon background.

Always read the jar to be sure embossing powder is not glitter before you pour it on your card. (just a tip for those of you who get excited like me)

So, I thought from there I would move on from neon ink, but hey, I was at a four day retreat where all-nighters are a norm! These inks were calling for some rainbow action. My final neon ink card was made with Concord and 9th’s Rainbow Wishes stamp set. The clouds are cut with a Lawn Fawn cloud die out of Close to My Heart silver glitter paper.

Hope your days are bright with Crafting!

I just can’t recommend these Rina K Electro Pop inks enough. If you invest in them, let me know if you love them as much as I do! (Now I must add some Neon foil, flock sheets, and glitz gel to my stash!)

That is all for now, have fun crafting…
