I think it’s safe to say this has happened to all of us at one time or another. We’re stamping, jammin’ to some tunes, having a GREAT time but the fun comes to an abrupt end when we realize we just tapped a Strawberry Slush inked stamp into a Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad, totally ruining the ink pad. Yep! It happens and there is GOOD NEWS! It can be fixed!
Today’s video is going to address this issue because it’s a big one. We’ve all done it so don’t think you’re the only one who has ever made this mistake.
A few tips about repairing ink pads…
- DO work quickly to remove the ink that is cross-contaminated.
- DON’T try to press the ink down into the stamp pad thinking blending it in will make it better. It won’t. Trust me. In fact, this is the fastest way to make it unrepairable.
- DON’T throw the ink pad away because it IS salvageable.
- DO have ink refills for all your ink pads on hand so you can fix the boo-boo and get back to stamping.
Let me share with you today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip on how to repair your ink pad disasters.

Ink refills come in our 4 Color Collections (and you save $5 buying them this way) OR you can buy them individually for only $2.95 each (usa). A small investment to make, really. And the refills will keep your ink pads juicy whenever they need it and let’s face it…. when you NEED the ink refill is not the time to buy it but before you need it, am I right?
If you haven’t invested in the refills yet, don’t put it off. They are such a key tool in your stamping repertoire.
