First Tuesday Tip is the Stampin' Spots. These are 1" x 1" square ink pads that come in either one of the 4 Color Collections or in a Stampin' Start Collection which is shown to the right. 119979
These are little unsung heros! I recommend Stampin' Start collection to new stampers or those new to Stampin' UP. WONDERFUL all around ink collection in color families and a basic black.
For me, Stampin' Spots are a FABULOUS way to get a variety of colors so you can stamp along with your favorite blog sites or demonstrator.
What I did was add a Stampin' Spot Collection each time I ordered until I had all collections. The collections range from $19.95-$21.95 for the Classic ink *shown* which comes out to $2 each! What an affordable way to get all our ink colors! Then as I found out which were my favorite colors, I bought the full size pad.
My spots are still going strong! After 2 years, one or two of my spots are showing signs of needing reinked. (no need to toss…just reink with Reinkers!)
SU card stock and markers are availabe in collections too. Again, great way to build your basic supplies in a variety of colors. Click here to go to the Stampin' Store to see all the collections. Look under Ink-certa
Before you know it, you will see a blog post and say 'I have the supplies to make that!" For me, that is a great feeling and I can go off to craft it. Stampin' Spots…my little unsung heros 🙂
