Cling Stamps

Cling Stamps are not that different from your traditional rubber stamps. The rubber stamp has a wood mount where as the cling stamp has a vinyl piece.
Cling stamps are used in the same way as the traditional stamp, only with the cling you can see where you are stamping the image and adjust accordingly.

I myself have found the Cling Stamps easier to work with in creating, Birthday Cards, Recipe Cards etc.

Position the card stock or other piece of paper for your project on a flat surface. You may want to cover your work area with butcher block paper or newspaper to keep it clean from ink.

Identify the cling rubber stamp image you want to use for your project and the color of ink you want to use.

Press the cling rubber stamp into the ink pad so that the image has ink running along the outline.

Place the image on the cardstock or paper where you want to add the image. Press down firmly and evenly so that the ink fully transfers to the paper.

Allow the ink to dry for approximately three to five minutes, and then fill in the image with colored pencils, markers, watercolors or paint.

Repeat Steps 1 through 5 for any additional cling rubber stamp images you want to add to your project.

Pour the stamp cleaning solution into the stamp cleaning pad. Press the used stamp onto the spongy area of the cleaning pad to remove the ink from the stamp image. This prevents the ink from mixing with other colors on your future projects and from staining the stamp image with dry ink.
