This bundle created by Tim Holtz and Ranger Ink includes 2 Mini Ink Blending Tools along with 4 foams and an additional package of 10 pieces of foam. The rounded foam applicator makes blending much easier and creates a more even distribution of inks or paints (sold separately). The blending tools measure 3" x 1" x 1". This package gives you a lot of blending possibilities when each foam is used for a different color.
I love using blending tools to create backgrounds and edging. The only problem is I'm impatient and the original rectangle version ends up leaving darker corners all over my papers. I was trimming the pads which helped but did not solve the problem. I jumped on this round version and I'm super glad I did. I still get darker areas but they aren't harsh angular marks -- they're nice smooth rounded, cloud-like, quarter moon puffs. The round shape also doesn't catch on rough areas or collaged edges quite as much. I wish Ranger made this version in a larger size because I'd buy that one too!
This is so awesome and doesn't leave marks where you started or ended. It is so much easier to ink with this one on delicate things...so much better than the rectangular blending tool. Love this...so happy with the purchase! I still love the rectangular blending tool...just love all Tim Holtz products!!!!
to use with the small inks that Tim Holtz is also selling. This enables me to have a wider range of colors and see which I use most often (which then I'll buy the larger ink). This tool is perfect for the mini inks, but it also is great for getting into tights spots or edging items giving projects a more polished, finished look to them. Love it, very high quality, great value.
This is my first time using the blending tool...haven't even used the rectangular style. Love, love, love the round tool!! It allows great shading on edges without a "line" accidentally appearing, as can happen when using the ink pad to edge or shade!
I've enjoyed using the square sponges, so when I saw these I had to give them a try. They're really great. They go on as smoothly as the square ones, but are much easier to maneuver. It's easier to get into small areas with these. They are definitely worth trying out.
These work well for inking. I like the fact that the sponges can be switched out easily. With two applicators, it is a lot faster switching from one color to the next. I got extra pads so that I have one for each color of ink and being able to store them under my Momento teardrop ink pads and my small square ink pads is a real bonus. I put a small piece of velcro under my larger sized ink pads to store the pad. It works with the pads that have a deep bottom, but not so well for my StazOn pads, and the pads are the wrong direction up so they can spread ink on stuff under them. I may affix a coin holder on the bottom of the larger ink pads to hold the blending pad. I really like having the ink and pad together; it's so convenient and takes up no space on the small ink pads.

These are a must have in my stash. They blend inks like no other. These are made of a special material as to not just absorb the ink into never land like a makeup sponge would so your not wasting ink. When you use a makeup sponge you are constantly re-inking that sponge because they just absorb the ink thus leaving you with very little ink to apply to your paper.
This product doesn’t do that. The ink is simply applied to the pad, not just absorbed. They are very durable! They last a very long time. They are frustration free and worth every penny.
Haven't used it yet, however am very excited to use it and am sure it will be amazing. Love Scrapbook.com such amazing and fast service @ very affordable prices even for international shoppers, keep up the super amazing service Scrapbook.com

This is a game changer for me. I was not much into distressing because I did not like the hard edges caused by my technique (or lack of technique) when using the distressing tool. I love the round shape; it makes distressing a breeze.
