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!
