Have you ever wondered what a Stampin' Up Craft Ink Pad is? This is a very common question among stampers.
A Craft Ink Pad is made of a pigment ink. I always think: Pigment is like Paint. It's thick and heavy and stays wet for a while (5 – 60 minutes depending on how inky your pad is and the humidity in the room).
Hey there! I'm glad you stopped by! This post is out of date.

When dry, it is waterproof. When wet, you can pour embossing powder on it and use it as an embossing ink.
Colored ink + Clear Embossing Powder = any color embossed image you want!
Stampin' Up Craft Ink is also an excellent choice for Scrapbookers. Once dry, this ink is permanent! Meaning, the color will never fade. So in 100 years, your Real Red stamped stockings will be as red and gorgeous as the day you stamped them!
This also makes them perfect for stamping home decor.

You can order full sized ink pads in White 101731), Vanilla (104308) and Black (102192).
For other colors, you will need to order the 122265 Uninked Craft Pad and the Craft Ink Refill of your choice. All ink refills are shown on pages 177 – 180 and can be purchased individually, or in Color Collections at a slight discount.
If you would like an awesome variety of colors, consider purchasing the Craft Stampin' Spots! They come in all 4 Color Collections.
The one thing you want to be aware of is that the spots dry out more quickly than the large pads. So, you may want to purchase the refills at the same time, or at least the refills for the colors you know you use the most.
