TGIF Loves! I hope everyone had a good week! What are your plans for the weekend? The hubs and I are on a mission to find his clothes for a wedding we are in in the beginning of August, all we have are his shoes so far, eek!

Anyways, Today I have a quick review to share with you! I was sent the Rectangular Stamper Set with White Pad as well as three jelly replacement pads from Winstonia.com.

The Rectangular Stamper Set 
with White Pad
This set comes with the Rectangle stamper, a white pad as well as a small scraper for $2.95
The White pad is described as sticky and firm but not a marshmallow head. I have a couple other stampers where the head is described as "marshmallow" and honestly I felt like that was the case with this pad as well. It wasn't really sticky to the touch for me like Jelly Pads are and it was definitely a lot softer and squishier then a jelly pad as well so in my opinion this white pad is more "marshmallow" then not. 

It picked images up easily and with clean lines although I felt like if I used it with a pattern that had tiny detail(like the one I use in the video below) the detail would pick up, but it would pick up thin. That make sense? It's hard to explain which is why I made the video for a more visual explanation! lol

Here are a couple manis I did using the stamper and white pad.

Now onto the
Rectangular Stamper Jelly Replacement Pads
This listing is for 3 jellys pads only, in pink, green and Blue for $4.95


These jelly pads are described as sticky and firm but not a marshmallow head. This time I agree. These pads are definitely squishy but more firm then a"marshmallow" pad. The surface of them is sticky as well which helps with picking up as much detail as possible.

Here are a couple manis I did using the jelly pad.

In my opinion, Both pads work well and I truly feel like it all comes down to preference. Some prefer the softer, less firm "marshmallow" type stamping pads and others(like myself) prefer the stickier, slightly firmer stamping pads. 

For a quick demonstration on how each pad works please check out the video below!



(I know I spelled "Marshmallow" wrong in the vid, please don't shoot me! lol)

Also, Here are some quick tips on these pads:

Instructions:
-Stamp in an up-and-down motion instead of rolling
-Gently file down a little bit if it won't pick up the image, use finest grit nail file
(I didn't have to prep either pad what so ever, and the images picked up well whether I rolled or did the up-and-down motion)

To Clean:
-DO NOT use acetone, nail polish remover, or cotton as these will cause damage on the pad.
Use scotch tape or a lint-free roller.

Well that's it guys! I hope this review was helpful!

  1. Really enjoyed your review in these stampers. I think I am going to opt for the jelly ones because I prefer thicker lines too.

  2. Ive been looking for a new stamper and I've been thinking about a big squishy one just because I think it would be easier to use. I love your designs, too

  3. Do you think firmer stamping heads work better for getting lines straight?

    1. In my opinion yes. When I use the softer marshmallow type heads my straight lines tend to go a little wacky lol

  5. This is a great review! Your video was super helpful for someone like me who knows nothing about stamping. I know I own a stamper with one of the squishy, marshmallow pieces, but I have no idea where it is or how to use it haha!
