Tuesday Tip: The new Stampin’ Up! ink pads

I was so surprised when SU! announced the change to its ink pads.  I didn’t think the flip-lid pads could be improved.  Wow, was I wrong!

I’ve been stamping with my sneak-peek products from the new catalog for a few weeks now, and let me just say that the pads are amazing.  I don’t know what I was expecting when they said “firm foam,” but yes, it is foam and it is firm — not as firm as the felt pads, so I think you feel the inking process better.   But the real change for me is the coverage.  I had to read and re-read the information about the pads to make sure the ink is the same.

Yes, the ink is the same, for most colors — keep reading!  If you have re-inkers, you will be able to use them on the new pads if you need to.  However, five ink colors have been reformulated, and you cannot use the old re-inkers on the new pads.  Those colors are:

  • Basic Black
  • Basic Gray
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Tempting Turquoise

The bottom line?  You must experience these new pads for yourself!  Why not treat yourself to a new Basic Black pad?  And check out this video for more information:
