So in the Spring 2018 catalogue are some beautiful new sets of ready inked Stampin’ Spots. These are dinky mini ink pads which are perfect for use with the smaller stamps in some of our stamp sets, they are also a great way to build up your crafty stash without having to invest in full size ink pads. We also have uninked spots in the Annual Catalogue which you can use with your re-inkers – these are then great to pop in your box when you are crafting on the go!
Now – that does leave an issue of how to store these and also to transport them, so I thought I would create boxes that would hold 6 (as I try not to use more than 3 colours on one card and so I woudl have enough for a couple of different colour combinations) and one to hold 4 (for those that come in a pack of 4 to co-ordinate with a suite)
My idea was to then make these stackable 🙂 and hopefully so that they would fit in my MDF ink pad storage too…which I’m pleased to say they do. This one holds 6 spots and I have another video coming shortly with the 4 spot version.
The Stampin spot dimensions 3.5 x 3.5 x 1.9 cm (1 3/8 x 1 3/8 x ¾) so the boxes are based on these
Spring Occasions Catalogue which should still be available
Tutti Frutti Stampin Spots : 145644 £8.25 1 each of 4 colours. Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red, Soft Suede
Picture Perfect Party Classic Stampin’ Spots (p5) 145641 £8.25 . 1 each of 4 colours. 3.2 x 3.2 cm. Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party
Whilst a couple fof these colours are retiring – the majority are not and it is great to have these to start you building up your colour collection, for crafting on the go, or for inking up small areas of stamps – especially when using a tool such as the stamparatus.
Annual Catalogue there is a pack of Uninked Stampinʼ Spots 141822 £8.25 which are Felt Stampin’ Spots for use with Stampin’ Ink Refills (p. 184–186). Pack of 5. This means you can create your own spots to fit with your crafting on the go. I often use these for classes too, so that I have inkpads to hand around.
So I do hope you find this as useful as I have, I think there will be different sizes on their way!
