Has anyone tried to make stamps with this yet? It looks like fun.. Was just wondering if this is more for a single image kind stamp or can you create stamps with a little more detail as well? Thx

I bought the medium last weekend but haven't tried it yet. The LSS had a sample with text. It looked good, but the medium is really thin. Maybe 1/16-1/8" thick. I looks really cool, but I think it would take very careful stamping not to ink the block as well.

Funny, was just going to ask this! I ordered and received the stamp material and special mat but haven't used it yet... was hoping for some tips/input before I actually try to cut my stamp material.

Also wondering if certain types of images/designs are better than others?

I was wondering about adding some "stamp mounting cushion" to the stamp after I cut it?
I know Purple Onions used to sell it.... May Tim Holtz?
I dunno

You can get the rubber cling stamp cushion at michaels or your local craft store I believe they have it down the stamp isle.. If not you can always find it on amazon or other places across the web. Just google "rubber cling stamp cushion"

I just got my stamp starter set. It stamps really well (alpha worked well) but I am having a very tough time getting the material to stay on the mat. It got jammed up twice on a smaller cut. I was trying to make a hash tag stamp and the material ended up waded up in the cameo. I pressed the stamp material down as it stated in the directions...anyone else have any thoughts?

I used it last weekend, but just did a very basic banner shape. It worked well and I didn't have any issues with the material not sticking to the mat. But again, it was a very basic outline shape, nothing intricate about it at all. It stamped nicely with the Prima chalk ink!

But as others have said, the stamp material is SUPER thin, so I wouldn't do anything too detailed...I saw on a youtube video where someone cut out a vine shape...she had trouble getting it back into shape after taking it off the mat and ended up just cutting a section of it off to try the different inks to see what worked best.

I had a lot of trouble with it and wouldn't recommend getting this at all. It blunted my blade trying to cut a few words and I couldn't get an even stamp with what I did cut, very splotchy stamping and ink beaded up on the stamp material like cheap stamps do. I tried a few tricks to improve with no real success. Very disappointed.

I'm glad I asked first! What a bummer there's a few cute shapes that I would have liked to use the material on.. But they are more detailed so I guess this wouldn't work very well! Glad I didn't waste the money! Thanks peas
