Sit back, enjoy, and let your creativity flow with the Paradise Found Spa Premium Dye Ink Mini's Bundle by Catherine Pooler Designs. These mini ink pads are perfect for your on-the-go crafting! Included in the bundle are eight premium dye inks in Peppermint Scrub, Mandarin Spice, Sauna, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, Daydream, Juniper Mist, and Royal Treatment. The cases measure 1 5/8" x 2 3/4" and the ink pad measure 1" x 1 3/4".
These inks appear to be on foam rubber and they ink up stamps very nicely without having to press hard on the pad. The images stamped are complete and smooth looking. Again, it's not necessary to exert a lot of pressure when pressing the stamp on to your paper. These are dye inks, so aren't permanent. There are a lot of colors to choose from. I like that with these mini pads, you can get 8 of the dozens of colors available in full-size pads. And because the ink so easily transfers onto stamps, you get the same coverage with minis as you would with a full-size pad.
I'm new to stamping and inking. So I'm learning about different types of inks, brands, and techniques. I was looking for mini bundles with basic colors to get me started. This was my first Catherine Pooler ink purchase and very happy with it. I tried a cheaper brand and noticed the difference. The colors are rich, better quality, and easy to brush onto paper to create backgrounds as well as for stamping. I am definitely going to add more of her colors to my collection.
These inks are amazing!! I absolutely love how vibrant the colors are and the ink pads are so juicy!! There is a learning curve to using these pads because it is a squishy foam pad and not a hard felt pad like TH Distress or Gina K. I also love the size of these ink pads they are almost double the size compared to the TH Distress ink cubes.
I love the colors but compared to the larger free sample I received with my first order, I'm not fully impressed. They don't seem to be as full of ink as the larger ones. Was hoping to not buy refill ink until I decided to buy the big pads. Maybe I got an old set? Following some of the card making videos I can see the oval pads give you more technique options then the small square ones. Will save my money and try some larger pads. For sure a good size for trying them out. Beautiful colors!
