Paper and Ink
I believe one of the biggest strengths of Stampin’ Up! is the quality of their paper and the coordination possibilities. You can get printed paper, solid card stock, ink pads, markers, and embellishments in the four core color collections and the two sets of In Colors. Coordinating projects is easy!

Firm Foam Pads
The video says you’ll need to refill your ink pads often. I have not needed to refill nearly as often as this video suggests.
More ways to use those labels!
To open the stamp pads, hold the the case with the big label right side up. Push the top away from you. The end of the top should have a section without ink. Flip that end up and toward you. If it doesn’t flip easily, wiggle it a bit to get it to the right place in the track. Push the pad onto the base. To close, reverse that process.
The lid and base can separate, but they’re not difficult to put back together.
