SALSA News! Ink Pads

Wow!  Who believes it's the middle of  August, already?

Hope this week finds everyone well and creative!

Holiday Stamp Camp:  A reminder about our Holiday SALSA Stamp Camp coming up Saturday, September 15!  There are still spots available in the morning and afternoon sessions.  Be sure to sign up soon!  Lucky participants will be creating four projects using products from the Holiday Catalog.

New Stampin' Up! ink pad format:  You all know that the Stampin' Up! ink pads changed in composition with the new 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog.  They are now a firm foam construction -- quite different from the linen ink pads.  While the foam is firm, it is softer than the linen pads and will feel juicier, too.  The firm foam pads release the ink easier onto your stamp so you'll want to use a more gentle tap-tap-tap on the pads to get them well inked.  For larger stamps, it may work better for you to tap the ink pad onto the stamp, so you can monitor the coverage.  If you are experiencing "over-inking", consider carefully trimming the edges of the stamps a little bit with your craft and rubber scissors. The craft and rubber scissors are listed in the new catalog on page 180. 

Something special is coming:  That's all I'm saying right now.
