Bought the honeydew at least 3 yrs ago; still inks like a brand new pad, so would say that's high quality and value. It really is a beautiful color, it's just not one of my basics. About 2 yrs ago started storing pad up-side-down...maybe that has helped with its lasting quality.
These stamp pads created beautiful effects on my gift bags for a project at work.
I love embossing these inks. People who don't stamp can't imagine how I made such a professional looking card at home. The ink makes a great statement without embossing, but heat embossing with this brand of ink is a pleasure.
I have them all and they are all fantastic, Great, Wonderful, and Last a great long while.
