I <3 the new Firm Foam Ink Pads!

With the introduction of the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, Stampin’ Up! has made a significant change to their ink pads to make your stamping experience even better!

Click on Shannon West’s You Tube video above for an excellent discussion of the new pads!   I would love to hear your feedback.  Please leave me a comment below!

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have had a chance to experiment with the new firm foam pads for the past couple weeks.  I immediately found that there’s a short learning curve.  My former “thump, thump, thump, swivel, swivel, thump”  technique gets too much ink on the stamp using the new pads.  Once I mastered the lighter touch, this new style earned a big thumbs up from me!

Here’s a few tips:

  • Light-tap stamping produces crisp, complete coverage on both line and solid stamps.   There’s no question you’ll notice a difference, especially on solid stamps.
  • The pads are juicier and are designed to stay juicy longer.
  • No more “dip” in the middle of the pad!  Even Steven, baby!
