There is a stamping term for what needs to be done to get a lovely, clean image each time you stamp with it. It’s called Conditioning. Yes, I know thats normally what you do to your hair after you shampoo it, but trust me, this is much less messy and no hair is involved!
Then, I rub my Sanding Block back and forth a few times in one direction:
And then I turn the stamp a half turn and sand back and forth a few times in the opposite direction.
Once this is done, I spray some Stampin’ Mist on my Stampin’ Scrub and clean the stamp like this:
Two other methods that stampers use are equally easy.
One other thing to consider when stamping with a conditioned SOLID image stamp is to make sure it has plenty of ink on it.
I’ll leave you with an example of a cleanly stamped card I cased recently. The main image is a SOLID image stamp from the set “Enjoy Every Moment”.
You'll find that you'll "Enjoy Every Moment" of your stamping time when your stamps are well conditioned, well inked and well LOVED!
