Trim your rubberstamp about 1/8" away from the outside line, taking care not to damage the image.
CHOOSE A METHOD:
- A favorite method when it comes to using unmounted stamps is to apply poster tape (when you want to see through your block) or double-sided tape to the acrylic block (carpet tape works miracles).
Apply strips of tape to the block and place the UM rubber stamp on the taped block.
When you are done stamping, you can place the backing for the tape back on or leave it off.
When the tape loses its tackiness, remove it and replace with another. Occasionally, you may need to clean the acrylic block with a product like Un-Du before applying more tape.
- Repositionable glue, like Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over, can also be applied to the acrylic block to attach the um. Be sure to allow time for the glue to dry on the acrylic block before using.
As you have no cushion between your rubber and the acrylic block, you MUST place a form of padding between your work surface and the cardstock in order to get the gentle cushioning normally provided by the cushion. I suggest using a newsprint pad, a large foam pad. Another option, would be a pad especially designed for this purpose (introduced in 2005).
Many of our customers favor using a mouse pad.
Catherine's opinion: I do not like the mouse pad idea because if your stamp is large and you find your stamp positioned on the edge of the mouse pad while stamping... you will have a nice big line from the inking... at the price of cardstock... I prefer working on a larger surface to anticipate the accident....
Sometimes for a detailed photo stamp it works best to have the stamp facing up and ink it. Then place the paper on it and use a brayed to apply the ink. I do this when I am having problems.
