NEW Stampin' Up! Firm Foam Pads



The 2012-13 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog features new Firm Foam Stampin' Pads. Today I am sharing with you an overview video, and a PDF regarding these new ink pads. (If you are getting my blog posts in email, you will need to click on the title of this post in your email, to see the embedded video.) Please feel free to email me, or leave a comment, with any questions you have!

I have noticed that images stamped with these new Firm Foam Stampin' Pads do not dry quite as fast as images stamped from my old felt/linen Stampin' Pads, so I try to work carefully. They do not take long to dry, it's just not quite as immediate as the old ink pads--probably because my old ink pads were chronically dry! But, one positive benefit of these inks not drying immediately is that you can EMBOSS with them, at least on paper or card stock. You'll want to have your embossing powder ready to go, and have a nice, moist ink pad, but it works beautifully. All you need is some clear embossing powder and a heat tool, and you will have 50 colors of embossed ink!

If you are considering upgrading all of your ink pads, please note that when you purchase them in assortments, there are considerable savings:

Brights (10 colors) - $59.50 purchased separately, $49.95 for Assortment
Subtles (10 colors) - $59.50 purchased separately, $49.95 for Assortment
Regals (10 colors) - $59.50 purchased separately, $49.95 for Assortment
Neutrals (8 colors*) - $47.60 purchased separately, $39.95 for Assortment
*no white or vanilla ink pad included in the Neutrals Assorment

'11-'13 In Colors (card stock + pads) - $35.75 purchased separately, $29.95 for Kit**
'12-'14 In Colors (card stock + pads) - $35.75 purchased separately, $29.95 for Kit**
**Kit includes 5 ink pads, plus 20 sheets card stock, 4 ea of 5 colors

And don't forget, you can get a $50 Patio Party Product Bonus when you sign up to Become a Demonstrator before June 30, 2012. So, if you are looking for a way to make your hobby pay for itself, this is a great opportunity.

PLUS, with our new $99 fully customizable Starter Kit, you can choose up to $125 of catalog product...that's one 10-color Core Collection of ink pads, plus the Neutrals Assortment (8 ink pads), plus one of the In Color Kits, with $5.15 to spare!
