I also promised to tell you more about the new firm foam stamp pads. Stampin' Up! retired all of the classic ink pads to introduce this new redesign. I can see a lot of advantages to them. With the old stamp pads, it wasn't unusual for the edges to curl up as the stamp pad dried out. This will not be a problem with the firm foam. It is easier to get even coverage on a large solid stamp because the stamp pad stays level also just because the texture of the pad. But they do have a little bit of a learning curve. Since the pads are made of foam (kind of like the Craft pads but not as soft) it is easier to catch the edges of the stamp. A light touch is best. But over all, once you get used to them, I am confident you will love them.
Over the next week or so, I promise to show you more new products as well as features some projects with retiring stuff on them as well. After all, I'm still sad we are losing some favorites and don't want you to miss out on them either.
