Is Your Honey Muddy?

Is your Hello Honey Ink Pad the same warm color as the card stock, or is it muddy and dull?  One of the reasons you buy Stampin’ Up! products for your cardmaking and paper crafting projects is that you know you can count on the quality.  But even with their insistence on quality, even SU can end up with problems.

Let me tell you my story. I was making cards with all the new In Colors and was VERY disappointed with the color of Hello Honey Ink.  It turns out that one of the early batches of ink wasn’t even close to the color of card stock.  You can see the muddy-looking ink on the right.

Hello Honey Ink from Stampin' Up!

At first I just thought it was a not very pretty color, then I started hearing from other Demonstrators.  Some said their ink matched perfectly, others had the same problem I did.  Since I know what good customer service Stampin’ Up! provides, I called them.  They sent a new pad out right away, and you can see it on the left in the picture above.

The reason I’m telling you this story is that if you bought Hello Honey Ink, especially early in the new catalog period, you need to check to make sure it matches the card stock!  If not, you need a replacement pad.  If you’re a customer of mine, just let me know, and I’ll be happy to contact Stampin’ Up! and have them send you a new pad, free of charge.

Don’t put up with defective paper crafting products!  Contact me today at sage@stampingmadly.com or 505-266-6240  If your Hello Honey Ink Pad is a muddy yellow-brown color, be sure you get a replacement!

    Thank you for posting this!! I was NOT at all happy with the Hello Honey. When the new catalog came out, my first purchase included the New In Color Cardstock & Pad Kit and the New In Color Coach Cards. The cardstock did not match the Color Coach card and the in was so much darker than the cardstock. (I like the color on the Color Coach card. I am not thrilled with the color of the cardstock. And I hate the color of the ink.) Therefore, I have NOT used any of the cardstock. And only used the ink pad to stamp 2 of the “swoosh” images from Work of Art set on Whisper White — that never got used on anything because it was so ugly. Now from your posting, I will be taking it back to the Demo when I go to the monthly stamp club next week.

      I’m glad the info was helpful. I figured there must be others who ran into the same problem, and knowing it was a mistake that can be corrected is important! I wasn’t thrilled with the card stock and ink at first, but now that I have the right color ink, I find I’m growing fond of it.
