Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I watched the Emerging Leaf video (first time on this site) and was so excited I ran right out to buy the foam applicator, inks, rubber stamps, etc.  Could not wait to make that card!!  Cannot find the Tim Holtz (or any other) foam applicator anywhere including the Tim Holtz website.  Where in the world did you find it?

Duh!!! Can you tell I'm new to this? I never noticed the "Shop Now" logo on the right side of the screen until you replied. Thank you for not thinking I'm a total idiot (only partial)!!
Can these be washed in between uses and used of other colors of ink?
I always rinse mine out before putting them away. Never had a problem!
I was studying up on this issue yesterday -- I found that alot of folks keep a foam for each color, and either put them in small ziplocs and throw em in a box, or, attach a piece of velcro to the bottom of the distresesd ink and store the pad there. I know I'm going to buy maybe 2 applicators, and then keep foams for the various shades in snack bags inside a shoebox or something. :)
I do not have the foam applicator but i do have the one with the felt (don t remember exactly its name) but i can t use it properly i think.It seems to me i did a better job using simple cotton.Any tips?I ve tried to find tutorials by Gina but didn t make it
Don't they dry out and get hard?

Are you using the felt one with alcohol inks or stamp pads? Are you trying to use the felt for the "Emerging Leaf" technique shown here on Gina's video? I couldn't get the felt ones to work right with that technique (or should I say, like Gina did with the foam applicator).

I m using the felt applicator with distress inks.No it didn t work out with that technique, i tried it

p.s.sorry for any language mistakes.I m from Greece and even though i am familiar with English i m not that fluent :)
Its my understanding (though I could be wrong), that the felt are for using the alcohol inks, and the foam are for use with the distress ink pads. I'm personally waiting for my first order to come in, but could someone who has experience with these shed light?
That is exactly right adetia
