Hi friends! Today, I am taking some time to test the new Toner Ink Pad from Heidi Swapp. I was so intrigued and excited when I saw this because being able to foil stamped images is beautiful and adds tons of versatility to your stamps.

This ink pad is a bit more work than normal ink pads because you have to pour the toner into the pad yourself… this gives you several hours to work with the ink pad before you have to discard it and create another one (replacement pads are available). This was pretty simple to do and you just have to do stamping for several projects at once to make it worth pouring a new pad.
When stamping with the sticky toner ink… giving good pressure is important, but ensuring that you don’t hold it to the cardstock for a long time is important. If you hold it in place for too long, it will rip your cardstock!
I have to be honest… At first, I was almost positive that this wasn’t going to work with photopolymer clear stamps. It kept ripping my cardstock because the ink and stamp itself is sticky. I found that using the MISTI Stamp tool helped getting a perfect solid image every time and helped me to not rip the cardstock.
Overall, I think this ink pad is super cool and gives a whole new life of possibilities for your stamps. It does take a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it you will be stamping and foiling with no problem!
