Process stamping is a multi-functional process where you can turn the ordinary into something really amazing.Stamps provide you with an image that you don't have to draw yourself.But they enable you to be creative in each piece and express your artistic side.Every time there are stamps that suit you.You can buy personal and set tickets.There are basically two types of stampsSolid outline.The physical stamp has a very detailed design that was signed just to create a design.The profile stamp has a profile and creates the image with different techniques.You can choose three types of stamps to stamp your image.Each stamp has its own features and uses.You can choose from rubber stamps, foam stamps and acrylic stamps or transparent stamps.Each has a unique advantage to make a unique image.

A stamped image can be used for greeting cards, scrapbook pages, and all types of paper items.Stamping is one of the most popular craft technologies ever!I know, not a week for me my hands didn't stamp and color on the card or scrapbook page.I think this goes back to the time when I used to like coloring in coloring books when I was a kid.Well, now I color the big girl with pleasant stamps and delicious ink.The basics are not difficult to learn, and once you do, you will find that you want to learn more.We start here to wet your creative appetite.The main difference between acrylic stamps and other stamps is that you can see it through acrylic stamps.This makes it easy for you to see where you stamp.There is some stickiness in this stamp.It is glued to the acrylic block used to seal.The problem with acrylic stamps is the way they are made.Poor quality, better quality.They usually turn yellow and stretch when you buy cheaper products.After a period of time, they often harden and lose their persistence.Rubber stamps are usually mounted on blocks of wood.It is supported with self-adhesive foam.Some rubber stamp is not installed, so you have to have a way to actually save the rubber stamp, usually with adhesive foam or acrylic blocks.Rubber stamps usually give the most detailed information.That's thin lines and shadows.The rubber stamp is also the most durable stamp.

Well taken care of, they will last a lifetime.Foam stamps are usually mounted on foam blocks.They usually give few details but still have some good design options.The foam stamp is a softer solid image.The final difference is durability.Rubber Stamps may require some techniques, such as bleaching and ink, where other stamps may not be durable enough to deal with them.Do I recommend one instead of the other?Not at all !I like every one of them.There are a lot of each type in my craft room.What I'm trying to say is that you need to know how to use each one so you can get the most out of your hand dollar.In most cases, rubber stamps are usually installed on wooden blocks.Sometimes, at the back of the block, they have a color picture that gives you ideas about the use of colors and designs.When you stamp with these stamps, you can't see the position of the stamps, so it is important to arrange things well when you design them.You can also get rubber stamps in uninstalled stamps.They are cheaper because you need to install them.It's easy to install these stamps.All you need to do is install foam and acrylic blocks.The mounting foam is glued together on both sides, you install the stamp on the foam and stick it on the acrylic block.The choice depends on which one you prefer.Your choice is endless when buying rubber stamps.They appear in the form of stamps or packages.I suggest you start with some basics and expand your collection from there.It's a good idea to make a set of alphabet stamps in your favorite font.These can be used for cards, scrapbooks, and paper crafts.I would also recommend some birthday pictures.They will get used to it.If you like cards then some emotions are also a smart idea.Think carefully about each purpose and how you will use them.If you 've never tried acrylic stamps, you're missing a chance to expand your craft further than you think.These stamps are the best form of true art.You can create an image of fine detail with an acrylic block and a stamp attached to it.Like any other collection, start with the base and add.Think about the stamps you have and add some new dimensions to your collection.Everything about craft inkI like to use ink on all my paper projects.I get so much satisfaction from creating art pieces for my cards, scrapbook pages and crafts.Put your ink pad upside down.I put the cover firmly around the ink pad with rubber bands.Be sure to wash the stamps before changing the color to prevent the color from getting muddy.Unlike rubber stamps, transparent stamps are not installed.They have a sticky base and they are made to attach to the acrylic block.You need a few size acrylic blocksMany people come to attend.The best acrylic blocks are marked so you can stamp them where you want to place the image.Use an acrylic block that can hold the entire stamp.You need to press hard and evenly on the block to create an even image.Wipe any ink on the acrylic stamp before you stamp it so it doesn't transfer on paper.You can use baby wipes to clean your acrylic block or stamp cleaner.Dry with a clean tissue.The color is opaque, the pigment ink is thicker, and the drying speed is slower.This feature makes it ideal for hot press printing.Some of them have metal, chalk finish and pearl finish.These inks are usually slow to dry.Always check if the label on the ink pad has a separate drying time.These pads are filled with a transparent, slightly (blue)-colored glycerin-based embossed fluid specially formulated for use with hot embossed powder.They are specifically designed for slow drying so you have time to add embossed powder to the image.These are generally on foam mats.However, they also have a pen with a chisel tip for fine stamping.These colors are water-based and solvent-based.They can be used on most cardboard as well as wood, acetate, shrink plastic, glass, metal, leather and acrylic surfaces.You may need a special cleaner for these inks.You should use the ink in a well ventilated place.These inks are made to resist or reject water-based dye inks on glossy paper.

The ink is water-based.They are mainly rightPermanent ink and felt pads.They are mats of one or more colors.They are translucent and dry quickly.If you, like me, like coloring when you were a kid, then you would really be happy to color your stamped image.There are so many options to color your stamped image.Your imagination is really limited.I use different techniques depending on my project and mood.It's all up to you as an artist!Play your creativity!Give it a try !I like the soft look of chalk.There are many options for the color of chalk.From color to autumn colors, you can fund almost any available color palette.They are usually applied with soft cotton.You can start with light colors and start coloring with dark colors.Some chalk can also be enhanced with a blender pen as a fixer.These are easy to use and even easier to mix and color than standard colored pencils.Once you apply the desired effect, you add a little water with the brush to achieve the water color effect.There are so many marks available for you in all types of price ranges.You can choose from simple gel markers, gelatos, copics, and spectrum noirs.All of these marks can be used to color the image you stamp.Some of them are even used to stamp your image.Buy the best mark you can afford.Start with the basic colors and then build your collection.When ink a stamp with a markerAlways start with the lightest color first.Use the mixer pen to touch any part of the image that is not clearly marked.You can color stamps in almost any wet color.The most commonly used are ink pads and brush markers.The best way to ink a wooden stamp is to lay it flat on the side of the rubber.If it is an acrylic stamp, place it on the acrylic block and put it up with the acrylic face up.Open the ink pad and tap the ink on the stamp.Make sure all surfaces are covered.Do not grind or rub stamps or apply excessive pressure on the liner.The small stamp can be pressed directly on the ink pad.They can be inserted into the ink and never rub the stamp on the mat..When marking with a brush, color the side of the mark instead of the tip directly on the raised surface.This way you can avoid breaking the tip.If you use multiple colors, start with a brighter color and mix to a darker shade.The brush mark with dye ink is quickly dry, so just before you stamp it.The "huff" on the stamp reactivates the ink with a short breath.Once you apply the color, gently place the stamp on the paper of the area you want to stamp.Keeping your stamps clean will help you to make your crafts investment last for years.There are a few things to remember when cleaning stamps.You can clean your stamp with a cellulose sponge.Sponges can be soaked with water and/or a little mild liquid soap.Rub the stamp on the sponge.Rinse and dry.Place the damp sponge in a plastic container for ease of use when you need it.Using spritz cleaners made specifically for stamps is the perfect choice to help you keep your stamps clean.The stamps are clean and stain-free.Some ink, like memory ink, will never be completely clean.Just clean the stamps as much as possible and don't worry about the stains left.Red, yellow and orange are usually easy to clean.They can often be knocked off on a clean sheet of paper.Don't soak the rubber stamp in the water.It will release the adhesive fixed on the block.Baby wipes are ideal for cleaning stamps.This is a quick way to wipe the excess ink and you can use another color.Most acrylic stamps can be washed with soap detergent and water.It is impossible for me to cover all the stamped methods.

No matter what your stamp storage system is, it's important to create a stamp catalogue that you can put close to your work area.Once you have organized our stamps, then making a catalogue will help you to know what you have and where that particular stamp is.In this way, it will be more interesting for you to create time, as you can coordinate your stamps for any project you choose to do.The first step is to create an index of all the stamp topics you may have.For example, you may have topics like holidays or you may decide to list each holiday.It depends on you!I like to enter my list as a document on my computer.I can then always add to my index.Now print each stamp on some cardsI like to use 8x10 pages that can slide into the page protector.Stamp numbers for each group.List on each page where the stamp is located, if it is a rubber or acrylic stamp.Put each page in its section.You can also add ink indexes to the same adhesive!The alternative to the binder is to print each stamp on the index card and add the same information.Play a whole on each card and use a ribbon or binder ring.How you store stamps depends on the number of stamps you have and the space you have to store them.Storing stamps by category will help as your collection grows.Set up your category as you think.You may have categories like holidays, birthdays, nature, proverbs, etc.....Use the best thing for you!In a box or drawer.I start with those decorative boxes that you can often buy at local craft shops.They are used to store photos, but I have been using them to store crafts.You can often buy 6 for $10.Then I put my label manufacturer and stuff inside the label.Now, I put them in the big drawer that was originally used for paper storage.I also keep a drawer for my punch and stamping tool, one for my acrylic block and one for stamping tool cleaning supplies.In this way, I can go to one place to buy all my stamping supplies.I bought a scrap rack recently.Now all my acrylic stamps will be placed on my shelf by category.Again, depending on your space and collection, you can also put them in a large toolbox, in a plastic box, and then in a bin, or in a pizza box.You can organize your stamps in any way that suits you, but I like to keep them simple!Themes a-.
