This isn’t a question you ask yourself often enough and, apparently neither do I!
As I was making some cards yesterday afternoon, I realized that I was tap tap tap TAP TAPPING on my stamp pad to get enough ink coverage–and it really still wasn’t enough.
Ding! Dong! The bell finally went off…….time to reink your stamp pad, Lady!
How to reink your SU! Classic Stampin’ Pad:
After the reinking all I had to do was gently touch my ink pad and stamp—with enough ink to make my words look ever so much more vibrant.
Moral of the story: when you have to tap too hard and too many times, it’s definitely time to apply some reinker to your stamp pad! Shame on me for letting mine go so long. And yeah for me for finally waking up.
If your pads aren’t giving you a sharp enough image when stamping, you probably need to reink them. I always recommend to my customers, when purchasing a new stamp pad, to purchase the Ink Refill right along with the pad. You won’t be sorry! If you don’t have reinkers (ink refills) for your Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink pads you can order them right now from my Stampin’ Up! store.
July’s host code to use if your online order is under $150: GP3QAAEU. If you place online order in July that will not exceed $150, then place it as part of a workshop order with me as the Host/ess. I’ll randomly select a name from all online orders placed in July and that person will receive the Host Reward Benefits for the month. (If your order is going to be over $150, then you are your own hostess and you receive your own benefits!)
Have a great Thursday. Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope you learned how to reink your stamp pads. It really does make a difference.
