So this week, I have a TIP for you that I'm always surprised my card making students at LSS don't know or don't do. It's soooooo easy and will make your ink pads stay juicier and help you ink your stamps more evenly.

Store your ink pads flat and upside down. Meaning you should see the bottoms of your inks when you open your drawer, not the label on the front that says what color it is. And you don't want them stored at an angle or on their sides as that will cause the ink to gravitate to that side and again causing uneven inking.

The one bad thing about storing inks this way is that they all tend to look the same from the bottom. To combat that problem, you can ink a white sticker dot (like the kind you buy to put on clothes at a garage sale) with the actual ink itself and then stick it to the bottom of your ink pad. That way you will always know what color you're reaching for!

Easy!
