Introducing Simply Chartreuse

By May 12, 2010General

You've already seen a few peeks of this color throughout the week and I thought I would take a few photos showcasing a bit more about Simply Chartreuse!

Simply Chartreuse collection

Six Ribbon styles, buttons, felt, cardstock and ink will all be available on May 15th in this fun new color! As a side note, we wanted to let you know that we have heard loud and clear your thoughts of our pigment ink formulation and we are currently working with our manufacturer to improve it.  In the interim, colored pigment inks will be available for sale in two options.

  • Full-size pad + free ink refill: $6
  • Ink Refill + free ink cube: $4

With a complimentary ink refill, we think you will be able to get a long life from your pads.

Simply Chartreuse Comparison
Here is Simply Chartreuse compared to two of our other yellow-greens, Spring Moss & Ripe Avocado.  You can see how fresh and limey the chartreuse is!  Yum!

    Ahhh…first the Tiffany blue I wanted…and now the lime. Life is complete – LOL

    And so glad you’re working on the inks. I just don’t think the pigment inks work…they’re…just not good and I HATE saying that. The original formula was fantastic…if only all the colors could imprint so well as the darker ones. I don’t envy your predicament!

    I’m sorry. Please bring back the ink cubes by themselves. I’ve had no issues and $2 at a time is how I afford to buy it.

    Terri E. says:

    Love the idea of an ink refill. I love the pigment ink, but it does seem to dry out very quickly. I am just glad I am not the only one with that problem. Hopefully you are thinking up a solution for the other pigment ink colors we already have.

    It’s a good life!

  • 27

    Seriously, I LOVE this new green! I don’t have problems with my pigment ink, but I don’t use them all the time.

    I do have a problem with the last color release -Hawaiian Shores, with the ribbons and ink not at all matching the cardstock.

    Francie says:

  • 45
    Cassandra says:

    I love my greens!! And you read my mind, just before I scrolled down to the comparison photo, I wondered where it fitted with the other 2 yellow-greens, perfectly in between. Another thing for the wishlist.

  • 46
    Roxanne says:

    The new green is fabulous, but please, please, please add the felt in spring moss at some point….and the ripe avacado too…

    That spring moss is heavenly stuff!

  • 47
    Lynne Phelps says:

    Is the problem with the new pigment ink just that it dries too quickly on the pad? When stamped, does it stay wet long enough to emboss? I would like to order some – do I just put the inkpad into the cart and I will automatically get the free refill, or do I include the refill and the price of the refill comes off at checkout? I checked the site and so far I don’t see any change.

    The cards you show are always so gorgeous–the colors, design, stamps, etc. But sometimes it is the simplest of things that finish it off that I never think to do–like drawing the lines above and below “thank you” and outlining the card.Thank you for always inspiring me.

    LOVE the new color and can’t wait to order the entire color set. Thank you for working on the ink situation. My inks have been fine for the most part, but I do have issues with a couple colors. I appreciate the free ink refill with a pad order. I have to say I love the softer pad of the pigment inks & the end result when these pads are working.

    Love the Lily of the Valley flower. You did a beautiful job showcasing it’s possiblities.

    Could you also please address the pigment ink situation whereby I already purchased the refills and cubes for all the pigment inks and now this offer/remedy is in place. Will you be offering any reimbursement or maybe store credit for those in my situation? Thank you for doing such a great job to come up with solutions when the product doesn’t work out quite as planned. You and the team have done an amazing job thus far!

    I absolutely love the new Chartreuse! I am currently redoing our patio in Hawaiian Shores and Chartreuse to remind me of our tropical vacation where the umbrellas were Chartreuse and the chair pads were Hawaiian Shores. The colors make me sooooo happy!

    Thank you for offering a free refill with the ink pads–since I am still waiting for the manufacturer to replace two of my colors, this will do away with that wait.

    The Color is gorgeous. but I am not too crazy about the new ink pads. I am having lots of trouble getting a good imprint. Despite following your instructions on the video. So would love to have the new colors in the old format ink.

  • 114
    Sandy Kay says:

    This green is just beautiful! Although I have yet to try the new ink formulations (except for snow and vintage cream, which I love!), I think I want to try this one in the cube to see how I like it. It’s just too pretty to pass up! I am wondering, too, how this color compares to New Leaf.

    Oooooh another shade of my ALL TIME favourite colour! I can’t fault it!
    Y’know what I think would be a fab future colour – I really nice grey. Not smokey shadow – much lighter. I love to use grey as an accent colour ;D
    Loving your new ink formulation too – covers my stamps like a dream!
    Keep up the good work!
