How to Re-ink Your Ink Pads

Catherine Projects, Videos


Hey, friends!  Happy Friday to you!  I'm up and around a bit more today, but still not 100%.  My back was still really sore this morning  but seems to loosen up after a couple hours.   I'm hoping to have this pinched nerve fully recovered soon.  Thanks for all your well wishes!

I filmed a 2 minute video for you today on How to re-ink your ink pads, and how to tell when they need it.  I get this question quite often, so I wanted to show you!


Most of my customers order ink pads without refills…but what happens at 10:00 at night when you're in the middle of a stamping project and your ink pad is dry? 

This would be called a STAMPING EMERGENCY!  

I recommend purchasing your Stampin' Up! ink refill at the same time you purchase your Stampin' Up! Ink Pad.    And quite honestly, it's probaby a good idea to purchase the full pack of cardstock (24 sheets for $5.50) at the same time as well.  Then you are sure to have coordinating ink and cardstock!

Well, why stop there!  Let me know if you need help picking out coordinating ribbon as well.

This would qualify as a STAMPING EMERGENCY:


The owl on the right (from the Fox and Friends Stamp Set) is Perfect Plum, but waaay too light. 

Re-inker Tips: 

  • You can also Re-ink your Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Spots using the matching Classic Ink Refill.
  • Watercoloring is easy with a little drop of ink on a non-porus surface, picking up the color with a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter.  I like to use a CD or even the box your stamp came in! 

Re-inkers are available in 4 Stampin' UP! Exclusive Color Families for $28.95 each and come in a little handy dandy box great for storing:

  • 105554 – Bold Brights  
  • 105555 – Earth Elements
  • 105556 – Rich Regals
  • 105557- Soft Subtles

You can also order your ink refills one-by-one for $2.95 each.  You can see them all in my Online Store.

Need ink pads, re-inkers, cardstock and ribbon in coordinating colors?  Your best value is to join the Online Cards and Projects Club!  (I am extending the deadline for February through tomorrow, Feb. 13 for joining this round.  Goodie packs will ship on Monday, February 15.)

Don't forget, every $50 purchase, you get to pick out a free product from the Sale-a-bration brochure!
