Would you like to Stamp Perfect Images Every Time? This simple technique works with all types of stamps and all kinds of ink pads.
This Video is almost 7 minutes long.

Cardstock or paper

1. Wood Mount stamps are ready to use as they are already on a block. Clear and Cling Mount Rubber stamps need to be put on a block so you can use them. If you want them perfectly lined up on your stamp block lay them on grid paper, then put the block on them.
2. Ink up your stamps correctly to stamp perfect images every time.
~Foam ink pads: Lightly pat the stamp on the ink pad. You do not want any ink except on the part you want to stamp on your cardstock.
~Felt ink pads: Gently rub your stamp in circles over the ink pad OR rub the ink pad in circles over your stamp. Keep the ink pad flat so the ink only goes on the part of the stamp you want.
3. Stamp straight down, count to 5, then pull the stamp straight up. This is the MOST important way to stamp perfect images every time! Do NOT tilt or roll your stamp block as your image will appear darker in spots or if there is ink on the stamp around the edges you will get a ring-around-the-rubber stamped image.
