Stampin' Up! has revamped their entire catalog (which will benefit you, the consumers in a positive way). They decided to get rid of all their current stamp pads...in their place will be "better" ones.
I didn't believe it.
I was very upset when I learned that SU was changing their ink pads...especially after spending so much money acquiring all of the current pads. I've been whining and complaining all week to my sister-in-law, who is also an SU demo, and we both agreed that it was "so stupid" on their behalf!
I ordered a bunch of the new products and had them overnighted (one of the MANY perks to being a demonstrator is that you get to order products before anyone else!)...I received them today and...WOW! The pads are really so different!
They aren't as thread-like as the old ones, more like dense sponges. Also, I always stayed away from ordering stamp sets that contained "solid" stamps...because I could never get the whole image stamped! It was so frustrating.
I was on the phone with my SIL when the UPS guy arrived...the first thing I did was open the new ink pads and tried them out. I used the bird from the "Always" set to test. Perfect!
Another plus?! They are now making colored labels to put at the end of the ink pads (in English, French, and Spanish). FINALLY, I don't have to use my label maker to do this anymore (they're affixed to the bottom of the ink pads, you just peel off the one you want).
I'm so excited! I had to share!
Oh, and the other products?! AMAZING!!! More framelits and embosslits please!!!
You need it all!!!
