CREATE A CUSTOM
A SPECIFIC STAMP DESIGN
This is especially nice when you are stamping many
cards, for example at Christmas time or for an invitation
1. Cut the stamp pad material to match
the size of the stamp. (See Fig. 1)
2. Stamp the design onto both sides
of the felt surface with black Memories ink. The image
on the felt side of the pad will be your template
for adding colors. On the back, the image will serve
as an index, since the image will not be easy to distinguish
once the pad is loaded with ink. Blot with a paper
towel. (See Fig. 2)
3. Use bottled
dye-based re-inkers or Cut
n' Dry Brush Tips to apply a generous amount of
ink to the stamped design on the felt side of the
pad, placing various colors exactly where you want
them. Make sure to cover the entire image with ink
overlapping the outer edges. (To use the brush tips,
drop re-inker ink onto a plastic palette. Set the
nib next to it to ink it up or rub it onto a juicy
inkpad. (See Fig. 3)
4. Position the pad so the top of the
image is facing up. Line the edges of the stamp up
to the edges of your new custom pad. Tap the stamp
to the pad several times. (See Fig. 4) Check the stamp
to see that it is fully inked. Repeat if necessary.
You can stamp a multitude of multi-colored images
with your custom pad, and it can be re-inked as often
as desired. (See Fig. 5)
5. If you plan to re-use the custom
pad, print an extra image on scrap paper. Label the
colors used. Store this image together with the pad
in a zip-lock bag.
The custom stamp pad can be cleaned
with soap and water to be re-used for a different
project. The use of pigment-based ink, paint, glue,
etc. is not recommended for the felt stamp pad material.
Use the foam type of stamp pad material for these.
