I have not used these but will be at a stamp show next weekend. If I get an opportunity to see a demo, I'll try to take notes and share any tips with you.

Until then, have you tried looking at the manufacturer's website? Perhaps they have a TIPS section.

Good luck!

I went to the show today and Dee Gruening herself was there! Of course, her booth was very popular and my timing was "off" as I got there in time for her meal break and then had plans to meet a friend.

Anyway, it looked to me as if she just used the Blending Blox pad the same way as a regular inkpad. But because of the gradating color, it looks spectacular when you apply the inked stamp to paper.

She even inked another image (different Blox color) and stamped over an image.

I plan to go back to the show tomorrow. Hopefully, she is there both days. I will try harder to see the demo "up close" and perhaps close enough to ask questions!

Default Thank you Tina

How exciting, sounds like the stamping shows are huge where you went. There was one in a town 35 miles from me today and it was a flop....10 vendors...nothing exciting and not worth the admission or the gas to get there (this part of the state doesn't get much in the way of shows etc) ...I look forward to hearing from you in case you can get some more info....I have 12 or so of those ink pads and have just made a mess with them so far.!!!

OP: Last September, I think, there was a stamp convention at the Spokane convention center. It wasn't as big as some of the one's here in California (home of the original), but my friend and I managed to dump a bunch of $$$. You may have missed it this year....but, check it out.

I love the blending blox...since it is a no uploading day, will link you to a card I made with them...looked better IRL
If you get them, the colors come separated with lil plastic strips you remove with a tweezers...they are there until shipped so the blending of the colors occur after they set with time.

Default Calgramma....I did go to that show last year

I have not seen any ads for another one this year and I can't remember the company that put on the show, so I can't check to see if they plan on having another one this year....probably not as it is getting kinda late in the year.

The stamp show was fun and I spent more money than I should have but I won't feel it for about 3 weeks (when the credit card statement arrives).

Anyway, my first stop was Sunday International's booth to see Dee Gruenig. My timing was much better this time as I was the 3rd of three people there (it was very early in the show).So, I was able to watch and ask questions.

Dee used the stamp pad direct-to-paper but said to pay attention to the directions of the colors. So if the dark color was applied to the top of the page, you would need to turn the inkpad before the next application so that the ink would be applied "light to light" and you just continue turning the pad to keep the ink either "dark to dark" or "light to light" to achieve the gradating color effect.

And, I am the lucky, proud, and happy receipient of a bookmark stamped and autographed by Dee Gruenig!!!

Although my friend was unable to join me on Sunday, I met someone that may become a customer (her demo quit), the owner of my local stamp store, and I won a set of 6 color wash sprays from Stamp Zia (and attended her demo on how to use them)!

So, I definitely enjoyed myself. The only "downer" is that I have not played with my new toys yet because we had to get ready for my DH newest toy - a pool table! It took about 4 hours for the two guys to deliver and set-up the 600lb table. It's not budging so I had to be there to "approve" its placement within the parameters that provided enough space to actually use the cue.

Well, time for TV date with hubby (Prison Break).

I hope this helped you better understand Blending Blox (which, I forgot to buy but I got some type of "correction" fluid marker and squishy scissors for $5.00 each - I bought 2)
