Default Craft Spots Rock!

I'm so excited I just had to share! Last month I ordered the craft spots in EE and RR families. I finally got around to using them today. I can't believe I spent so much money buying classic pads last year. I mean, I know classic ink is good if you're in a hurry but the craft ink is AWESOME!!

I was making a birthday card for my BIL and thought I would use my Pines set. Well, anyone who has that set knows that the big trees stamp (which I really wish was 2 separate stamps) can be a real bear to ink with classic ink. I was getting so frustrated because I just couldn't get good coverage with my Forest Foliage classic, so I decided to use my Handsome Hunter spot. What a difference. And the slow drying issue? I just ran my heat tool over it for about 15 seconds and no more problem.

Anyone who is on the fence about getting craft ink, get these spots! I can't wait to order the other two families! Thanks for letting me share my excitement. Now off to more stamping!

Yeah, I was really excited to see these in the catalogue this year. It's perfect for stamping titles with your alphabets and stamping/scrapping on the go. Plus you can get all the colors pretty cheaply. I love them!

Thanks for sharing this information. I guess I haven't memorized my catalog yet because I hadn't even noticed these. Spots are definitely more in my budget. I'm going to order one at the technique class I go to next month so I can try them out.

I love mine too, the colors are really true whatever the color of cardstock you use. I don't find them messy contrary to a lot of comments I have read and they don't bleed, or at least mine don't.

I love them so much I am now going to get the full size craft pads and not even bother to get the classic pads, I might just get the spots as I have the markers.

When you see the colors embossed with clear powder they look awesome. I must make a card with them this weekend.

I bought the White craft pad and fell in love, but couldn't afford the rest in full size so I bought SS and RR in the spots, I too will be buying the rest of the families, the colors are so true and rich, and I don't mind waiting the drying time, I just sent them aside and start on something else

I love mine as well, I feel the coverage is much better. They are small enough that you can ink in several different colors on one stamp. Haven't tried them on a BG stamp yet, but any other size I love the control.
