Stamping with Polymer stamps

Cindy Hills
I have been stamping with the  new Flower Patch Polymer set.   How do I get an even color with the big flower stamp and the large leaves?  The ink spreads out then leaves blank holes in the image.   It doesn't look good at all.  Any suggestions how to get the ink to even out?

The smaller images I am doing great with.  It's just the bigger images.

Thank you for all your help.  Cindy Hills from Wi

Inking up Polymer stamps

Cindy Hills

Hello,

I am using the new Flower Patch stamp set.  I am having trouble getting the solid images to ink evenly and not have blank holes in them.   How do you get the ink to spread out evenly on the solid petals of the leaves and the biggest flower?

The smaller lines and petals ink evenly but the big solid images.

thank you for any help!   Cindy Hills from WI

I'd be interested in knowing as well. I played with that set for hours
trying to get even coverage. I did find that the lighter the color, the more
even coverage, but I want to use the new colors. Someone said stamping off
first but didn't work for me, all I get is uneven coverage.

Yes I have rubbed my hand on the stamp.  I have cleaned the stamp.  I have
tapped lightly and it still has "holes" in it.

I've had great success using the piercing mat or other foam surface as a
base to stamp on.

I place my stamp on the block, turn the block over and gently tap the ink pad over the stamp moving the ink pad around as I do. This is what has worked for me. I have found if I don't tap it and move the  ink pad then it doesn't cover the stamp evenly. I hope that helps!

Ladies ~ Try using the Stampin' Pierce Mat under your card stock ~ that
should provide a little give so that the stamp can deposit all the ink!

Bonnie Thurber taught us to stamp and then say "(Insert your name) is
beautiful" before lifting the stamp.
 
I don't know if this applies to photopolymer stamps but is sure does make a
difference with red rubber if you let the stamp set on the paper about 10
seconds before lifting the stamp.

To get even coverage and a crisp image with the solid Photopolymer stamps,
lay your cardstock on top of your piercing mat or a similar surface then
stamp.  Also helps if your ink pad is fairly juicy - not drippy wet or you
will get smearing.  (Ask me how I know!)

Patty Bennett posted a solution - try placing SU!'s foam pad under your
work.   I bought a large foam-like pad years ago, and placed it under my
grid sheets before stamping; it really helped me to get an evenly stamped
image.

Try rubbing that area of the stamp well with your finger to rub off any layer that SU! may use to make them.  Or rub them good on a pair of jeans.  On the regular rubber stamps, I use the sanding blocks to get that sealant off - but I'm not sure if the photopolymer can take that.

I have had good luck putting the cardstock on top of the pierce mat when stamping.  The thick, soft surface "gives" a bit, and the big, bold images stamp more evenly.  Hope this helps!

Hello!!

I want to thank everyone for trying to help me with the polymer stamps.  I am now getting it all to ink and stamp by tapping the ink on with the pad and then stamping with the cardstock on top of the piercing mat.  I just need to work on the big flower yet.  I am now down to a 1/4" hole now!!   I'll just keep playing with it. 

Thank you all again!  Cindy

Re: SU!: Re: RE: Inking up Polymer stamps

Brenda Crawshaw

One thing that might be contributing to the problem is if your ink pad is overjuiced.  I find that with the new foam pads and ESPECIALLY with the new In Colors that if there is ink pooling on the surface you won't get even coverage no matter what you try with the stamps.  I solved this by taking a piece of regular printer paper, folding it in quarters and just placing the paper over the ink pad with just regular pressure - no pressing - until you get a rectangle that doesn't have bleed marks around the outline.  Try that and see if it helps at all.

Try using the piercing mat under your card stock,  that will give you much better coverage.

Cindy,
I had the same problem the first couple of times with the big flower. I cleaned it a couple of more times, and then rubbed and twisted it on my grid paper. Then it was fine. I tapped the stamp lightly on my ink pad  a couple of spots, just in case it wasn't getting 100% inked up.  I have noticed air bubbles under the stamps sometimes, and that could interfere with a smooth image.
Good luck
Diane
