Thumbs up Thoughts about the Craft pads

Kymber's thread about the craft spots motivated me to open each and every one of my spots to make sure they are all good (they are).

I am a card maker, not a scrapper, so I never had any intentions of getting any other craft pads but the white and vanilla, but when the spots came out, I figured it might be good for my business to get them. I bought a couple sets in July and the last two just this past week.

I never really intended on using them much in my card-making, but while I was testing them all out this evening, I noticed that they dry much faster than I thought they would. Slow drying time was, in my mind, more of a drawback than anything else, with the exception of using them for embossing. But now I know that they are a feasible ink to use on paper and don't take so long to dry that I wouldn't ever use them to make cards.

I also really like the fact that the light colors will show up AS COLOR on darker cardstock. Now I can stamp yellow on my Night of Navy if I want to!

And now I can play around with embossing in lots of different colors. I've got a gifts class coming up - one of the projects is a candy dish made from terra cotta pots and I embossed blue snowflakes on it... it's beautiful. Couldn't have done it without the craft inks!

And a really big plus - the Bashful Blue craft ink really IS Bashful Blue!

Thanks for that positive review! I'm tempted to try them out myself, and was feeling hesitant after some negative reviews.

I love them. I have them instead of classic. Wouldn't trade them for dye based for anything. Might throw in some dye based as an additional thing, but the craft pads are my standard pad. I like my colors true on any cardstock.

I might have to try them too! I've only ever used the classic pads, but I've been thinking about getting a set of spots in the craft ink to try. Now I just might have to do it. Thanks for the review.

Default craft pads are a "go" for this weekend!

They are on sale this month, so I'm jumping in. I'm getting two color families this weekend, two more before they run out at the end of the month. Thanks for sharing!
