This beautiful flowery heart stamp is so sweet and great for stamping on envelopes. It is shown here stamped using the raspberry coloured ink padavaliable under the options menu. It makes a great present for an anniversary, and is also perfect for wedding invitations, table or room decorations.The stamp can be used on paper, card, fabric, walls or furniture and it looks fantastic.
This beautiful flowery heart stamp is available in three sizes: Small (5 x 5cm), medium (9 x 9cm), Large (13 x 14cm). These measurements are the size of the stamped image, the handmade wooden blocks that they are mounted on are slightly larger than the size of the stamp.
I have added an option to buy inkpads there are two sizes avaliable; the smaller size measures 2.4cm x 2.4cm and is £3.50, it is really only suitable for the small flowery heart. The other size of inkpad is 4.5cm x 7cm this inkpad is £6.00 and is suitable for the medium and large size flowery heart, as you dab the inkpad onto the stamp to get and even coverage.
Please note, inkpads are available separately. The inkpads that I sell to be used with my stamps are smaller than the bigger stamps but still work well with the bigger stamps as you apply the inkpad to the stamp.
Stamping Instructions1. Make sure you have a flat surface for your paper or card to go on. 2. Always use matt, uncoated paper. The ink pads that I sell will not dry on shiny paper.Also note that ink pads that do dry on shiny paper may not be suitable for use with my stamps.3. Hold the ink pad in one hand and the stamp in the other and dab the ink pad onto the stamp. Have some practice paper to hand for your first few goes.For small stamps a couple of dabs of the ink pad will be enough ink.For larger stamps dab the ink pad all over the stamp to get an even coverage.4. After stamping 5-10 images the stamp may become a bit clogged up with ink. Clean with a scrubbing brush and washing up liquid under running water, dry with kitchen roll.It is also a good idea to clean and dry your stamps after use and dust with talc.Trouble shootingIf you find you have a smudged image or the finer detail is filling in, you may have applied too much ink, and/or be pressing too hard. It also may be that you need to clean the stamp, as it is getting clogged up with ink.If the image is too pale, is broken up or is missing in places you may have applied too little ink, be pressing too gently or may not be applying pressure evenly all over the back of the stamp.If you find that with several attempts and trying all the above there is an area of the stamp that will not stamp properly there may be a fault with the stamp, in which case let me know and I will get another stamp in the post for you, and refund your return postage of the faulty stamp.
