Dry ink pad? Simple solution!
This blew my mind! Took a stamping class from Dyan Reaveley which was packed with interesting ideas but most of all was a simple trick. When your ink pad starts to run out you either buy a new one or buy a re-inkerů right? Well, what if I told you there is a simpler and cheaper alternative?

Ranger Essentials Ink Refresher (no, I don't work for Ranger or sell it)

Dyan says most ink pads do not run out of ink, they actually dry out. This product restores the stuff that keeps an ink pad juicy. It's a spray bottle and you only need a spritz or two. I went home and did up all my stamp pads. OMG! So easy, so cheap, no mess.

INK PADS ONLY. Not permanent or pigment pads.

If you live in a dry climate this product is an absolute must! If you have a drawer full of ink pads that have languished for a very long time, this will (probably) restore your collection. There aren't a lot of stamping products that I'm crazy about but this is one I recommend without reservation.

Thank YOU

Thank you so very much for the information about juicing up dry inkpads.
I am also new to the world of paper crafting.

Thank you.

I love the stuff. I have even gotten some very old dry ink pad back to life.

I will have to remember this. Thank you Upside Down!

I think you mean it is for dye ink pads only. Makes sense. Should be great on those rainbow pads.

Thanks for letting us know about this product. I will look for it when I am next at a craft shop :)

Thank you USD, the best and cost saving tip I've ever had.

I'll have to try it, I buy a lot of ink pads at garage sales.

Now to figure out where to buy it! Online of course, but somewhere with low shipping?

Amazon add-on item with a $35 purchase of other things here. Then go for the total that gets you free shipping.
