Cool tip for using sponges
Stampin' Up! sponges are the softest sponge I've worked with and at $7.75 for 3 they're a very inexpensive accessory - also each sponge can be cut into 4-6 pieces (I prefer 4).
I thought I'd share this cool tip that was shared to me by Patrice (I think) at Convention that in a class setting attach a coloured card stock tab to the sponge with a staple (& our round tab punch is perfect for creating the tab).
This gives you something to hold onto, keeping your fingers clean & you don't put the wrong coloured sponge into the wrong ink pad - disaster when a dark colour goes into a lighter coloured ink.
Thanks Patrice for sharing it was a very cool tip.
