Q and A




When using clear stamps are you finding you don't get a crisp clean image or the ink beads on the stamp??

Here is one of my crafty friends secret, Julie told myself and a few of my other crafty friends this secret and we have been quite happy with the outcome of using this secret tool.  The secret is this, to use Versamark Watermark stamp pad first and then ink up your stamp after that using whatever ink you like to use and you should get a crisp, clean, and unbeaded image.  I am sure most of you knew this before, but just thought for some of you who have said " I will never buy another clear stamp set again!" this is for you or perhaps a newbie to the crafty world of cardmaking :).

I've been sanding mine very lightly too and that makes a big difference on some...bt most of my clear stamps are just outlines, so Versafine works really well on those.

Thanks for the tip! I mostly just use my Staz-on ink, but I only have a few colors. Now I can use the versamark trick :)
