I have been making Christmas cards. I am done now but I had such trouble with this white ink that came in this kit. I am using the clear stamps but when I try to stamp with the white ink it barely shows on dark cardstock???

Is there a good white ink that i can get a good bright image from???

Blessings,
Julie

Julie--
I'm on a perpetual hunt for a good white ink as well! This year for holiday cards, I have found my best bet to be white ink, heat embossed with white powder. It makes the white really pop against dark colors or even patterns.

Seriously.... I have stazon opaque and that just does nothing unfortunately...I know papertrey ink is supposed to have a pretty good white ink, but I can't get that in Germany. :-( I agree about the embossing...can't really go wrong there.

Stazon white does not show up on cardstock...it's really for non-porous materials. You need a pigment ink.
