How to take care of your Stampin Up! inkpads
In this blog, I share some tips on how to take care of your Stampin Up!- inkpads.
Here are 5 easy things that you can do .
Tip #1 to take care of your Stampin Up! inkpads-close them properly
Make sure you close them properly after using them.
You should either hear the lid click or if you didn’t hear that, then do a visual check that there are no gaps showing.
Tip #2 – keep the outside nice and clean
Keep the outside area clean after using them.
I wipe mine down with a babywipe.
This makes it easier to see what the label says, and it won’t dirty your fingers when using it the next time.
Tip #3 to take care of your Stampin Up! inkpads- keep them nice and juicy
Buy the re-inker at the same time as the stamp pad and re-ink them regularly. This way you avoid drying out the stamp pad.
There are many other ways you can use your re-inkers too!
You can squeeze a drop onto the lid and use your water painters to create a water colour effect.
Or you can squeeze a drop onto your embossing paste to colour it.
Keeping your inkpads conditioned is a good way to take care of your Stampin Up! inkpads.
Taking care of your Stampin Up! inkpads properly will ensure many years of happiness!
Tip #4 – store them properly
Store them in a horizontal position – not standing upright.
By doing this, the ink remains evenly spread over the inkpad.
There are many storage options that suit the Stampin Up! inkpads.
Stampin Up! sell inkpads storage – you can have a look at them here.
Or you may prefer a more natural wood look – which is what I use in my craft room.
Storing your inkpads in the right orientation is the first step in taking care of your Stampin Up! inkpads.
Tip #5 – label them
Label your inkpads straight after opening them – you will find the labels of any Stampin Up! stamp pad on the reverse side of the inkpad.
The colour name can be peeled off easily.
This way you can identify your colours straight away.
