Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

When stamping with this one, because it is large, I use Lisa's tilt and tap method and it works like a dream!
I've never had any issue stamping this hot air balloon. It is a great addition to my collection.
I absolutely love this stamp-frequently one of the main themes to my work. I also love that it's nice and large.
