One thing that I've held to when using clear stamps is to practice on a piece of scratch paper. Once I get used to how much to press with a particular clear stamp, then I will move on to stamping that image onto card stock. I've found that the larger images seem to take a little more pressure than the smaller images.

I also agree that a heavy hand will blur the image. I love clear stamps but it did take me awhile to learn how to use them.

i so need to you all what i use for the clear stamps and the ink is the key..i have tried all dye inks and they dont work like this...i get a special ink pad from STAMPOLOGY, and i use it only with the clear stamps. it is exclusively for clear stamps...not rubber. the ink has a special formula that stamps a perfectly clear stamped image every time. yep..every time. you can go to their site at www. creativityinc.com , ok later buddies

Marvy has also just put out a set of their markers in the 8 primary colors (red-violet, brown, black) that are meant just for clear stamps. I have no problems with most of my usual inks, so I haven't tried them myself, just saw them at my LSS.

Inkyjo, to help you identify the markers meant for clear stamps, I should tell you that they have CLEAR covers as opposed to the usual colored plastic ones.

Default Made a mistake

Sorry, folks, I guess I looked too quickly at the set of Marvy Markers for clear stamps. Saw them again today and realized that there are only 6 colors, not 8. Looks like red, yellow, green, blue, brown and black.

I went to a stamp camp on Saturday and got to see and play with the new style of stamps that Stampin' Up has. Now the selection is clear or wood mounted. As for myself, I prefer the clear so that I can see where I'm stamping my image. I also got a better understanding of EZ Mount, which I plan on getting as soon as possible. Most of my stamps I unmounted and now, what I thought would work, is actually a pain.

What's the problem? Maybe we can give you some tips.

I've been using repositionable tombow adhesive and it has gummed up all of my acrylic blocks. Next stop, EZ mount!
