Do these inks give every stamp a great look, or just vintage-styled ones? It is distress inks, and I was wondering if anybody uses them for baby-styled stamps or edging...? thnx

Since they are water based they will give an uneven distressed look when you stamp with them. I love the effect it gives
I use them on the edges of almost all my cards an layouts

I use them to distress the edges, to paint my wrinkled ribbons or flowers, to color all the images, make my own mist,etc... I'm addicted to TH inks! They are my favorite medium to color.

Okay, but would you use the inks for any type of layout/card? EX: Weddings, Babies, Vacations, School, etc. Would the inks "work" for these types or others? thanks again!

You can use them for anything IF you want that kind of shaded, uneven look - that's what they are designed to give. If you're trying to stamp a crisp, professionally-printed greeting kind of look, distress inks are probably not the inks to use.
