MFT Creative Chat - Ink Pad Storage!


Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!  Welcome to the MFT Creative Chat - Ink Pad Storage!  I LOVE these monthly Creative Chats...mostly because I am nosy and LOVE to see how other people store their crafty goodness!

I have a few (grin) ink pads, and to start, I have lots and lots of SU! ink pads from back in the day when I was a demo.  Though I am no longer a demo, I must admit...I reach for these inks quite often.  At one point I thought about selling them, but for now I think I'll hold onto them.

I have two ink pad caddies, and one of them is full of just SU! ink pads, while the other one has a mix of SU!, Distress Inks, Versamark and some other random pads that I may not reach for all that often.  These sit on a rolling tool cart behind me so I can just get up and get a pad if I need too.  You can see that the wall behind them houses my old stamps...really old stamps from when I stamped back in high school (which was quite a while ago).


I also have all (I think) the different colors of Memento ink in Dew Drops.  I LOVE the colors of these, as well as the coverage, and I keep them in a basket in a drawer directly under my stamp desk.  I like the size of these for storage, and they are easy to hold and dab onto a stamp.


I have a chart of all of my Memento inks that I keep on one of my cabinet doors.  I used the gorgeous flourish stamp from Always Time For Tea and stamped each color I have onto a sheet of Sweet Tooth Cardstock.  I then wrote in the name of each ink with a Copic Multliner.


Just about every card I create features an image colored with Copic Markers, and thus, my go to ink is Memento Tuxedo Black.  I keep two pads nice and juicy on hand at all times in this little cardboard box that sits on my stamp desk.  I also have a refill right there so I can add more as need be.


Thanks SO much for stopping by! Please head on over to Kim's Blog for a listing of the designers sharing how they store their ink today!  MFTeasers start tomorrow and we have SO many new goodies in store for you!  YAY!
