This beautiful handmade stamp is mounted on a wooden mount. Inkpad not included.
The Folk Heart Stamp comes in 2 sizes ( 14x11.5 cm ) and small folk heart (9.5x7.5cm). This stamp depicts a reindeer between 2 trees with small animals and decorations set inside a folk art inspired heart. The stamp is made by hand by me and set on a wooded mount also made in the UK.
This stamp will make beautiful cards. It looks stunning stamped with the camellia red, as in the photo or with burgundy or gold. Inkpads are sold separatly but also avaliable from noolibird at not on the high street.
The stamp is made from resin and mounted on a wooden mount. Wash the stamp under running water with a brush, do not soak in water. Dry then dust with talcum powder. Only use water based inkpads with noolibird stamps.
1. 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.
If 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.
