When you use something every time you stamp it can be easy to take it for granted and to forget just why you love it so much. I know that this has happened for me with the Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads. I know because despite using them almost every day, I had not really thought about them much for a long time, Then someone asked why I used those ones and not any other. I found myself going on and on about how wonderful they are!
So for this week's Find Out About Friday I thought I would give you the shortened version of that conversation and share my top 10 reasons why I love the Classic Ink Pads from Stampin' Up! UK.
Reason 1: They ink the stamps like a dream! OK so that may seem like a basic but it's an important one! The way the pads are designed means that the ink is always on the surface ready to be transferred to your stamp with a couple of light taps. This great coverage mean less waste and frustration from poorly inked images on your projects.
Reason 2: They perfectly coordinate with the card stock, papers and embellishments that Stampin' Up! offer. No more wasting time trying to get everything to match or at least look OK together and more time crafting!
Reason 3: The lid stays attached to the Ink Pad! Brilliant - I am a messy crafter and no matter how big a surface you give me to craft on I will soon fill it. Knowing the lid will be with the ink pad means I am not going to loose it or spend ages looking for them in the chaos that is my craft space. It also means I am less likely to put my and straight down onto an open ink pad and that my pads won't dry out from being without their lids!
Reason 4: They are reinkable. When the ink pad gets dry you can add more ink and the reinkers are available in all the coulours - way less waste than having to get a new one each time, and a lot more exconomical.
Reason 5: As well as stamping the ink pads are great to use for watercolouring or colouring with blender pens - just squeese the pad into the lid and you have an instant pallet making them very versatile.
Reason 6: They are easy to grip and hold since they have great finger grips down the side - ideal for inking edges or direct to paper techniques. It also means I am less likely to drop them - go back to reason 3 if you wonder why this matters for me!
Reason 7: The ink surface is huge making it easy to ink the whole stamp quickly
Reason 8: It is easy to see which colour is which - they have labels on the end and on the top. You can also use the spare labels that come with them on the inside of the ink pad to make it even easier. I find this really helpful when I am using more than one ink pad on a project.
Reason 9: The ink dries really quickly meaning I am not going to smudge it and ruin my stamping. Very important to a clumsy stamper like me!
Reason 10: They look pretty when they are together on the Storage Caddy. More seriously this caddy also makes them easy to grab and use.
So there you have it - 10 reasons why I love the classic Ink Pads from Stampin' Up! UK.
