Stamping Tips....

Stamping Tips.... I'll share mine if you share yours! This is Heather and I'll be talking to you more next month during gg's hiatus. The other day I e-mailed Charlotte and mentioned that my 8-year-old daughter stamped her own Valentine's with a little "coaching" from me about using unmounted stamps and stamping clean crisp images with large images. Charlotte thought it would be a great idea to compile a list of stamping tips for stamping clean, crisp images. Here are a few of my favorite stamping tips:
  • I mostly use unmounted stamps attached to acrylic blocks with poster tape. I use an old mouse pad under my stamping surface and that extra cushion helps me stamp a cleaner, crisper image. The extra cushion helps compensate for slight imperfections in the rubber.
  • To ink large images, I lay the stamp rubber side up and use the inkpad to dab the color onto the stamp. It is much easier to make sure I inked the the stamp completely.
Now- what are your favorite stamping tips? Leave a comment or send an e-mail: and I'll compile a list for all! Heather the MooseLover
