Good afternoon. I want to talk about our (Stampin'Up!) stamp pads and markers. Our stamp pads come in the same 48 colors as our cardstock and markers. Our stamp pads are designed to always have the ink on the top of the pad. We also have reinkers to re-juice your pads. You do not need to pound on our stamp pads. Just stamp up and down and look to make sure your stamp has covered. Our markers are the same 48 colors and can be used to color in your image, or apply directly to the rubber. Such high quality products. Enjoy!
