using your stamp
To use your stamp, ink thoroughly and evenly, then press it gently but firmly to the paper. If the stamp is larger than the ink pad lay the stamp onto a flat surface and gently tap the ink pad repeatedly over the surface of the rubber stamp. If the stamp is smaller than the ink pad gently tap the stamp onto the ink pad.
caring for your stamp
For best results, clean your rubber stamp after each use, so the old ink won't unexpectedly appear on future projects. Remove excess ink by stamping on scrap paper or a damp paper towel. Never soak your stamp in water, it can loosen the adhesive that keeps the rubber attached to the backing.
