I talked a little bit a while back about how the Stampin’ Up! ink pads were changing from the “old style” that used a felt pad to a new “firm foam” style pad. And I tried to describe it in words, but I know it can be hard to feel like you understand the difference until you see it. So, I thought I’d put together a video so you could see the new pads and the differences in as close to person as I can get for many of you.
The quick basics on the new pads are:
– they have labels!
– they give you a more solid image
– they stay flat over time
– no textured impression
**but note: when you in up your stamp, the outline of that stamp image stays on your pad for a second so you want to let it fade out before inking up a new image just in case the image transfers….though I think that would be a really cool technique to try on purpose! 🙂
– they are super squishy, so no more “twist twist, tap tap”… its now just “tap tap”
But here’s the video, so you can check it out yourself!
