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 sheet to practice on.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block with the exception of a Sandbag, 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.

This dash stamp is solid and precise.
This little stamp will go deep if you hit it to hard LOL. I have used this in many of my creations. I especially like it for my bumble bee stamp to stamp trails of flight. I have also used in Mandalas so there are a lot of uses for this sturdy little stamp. I recommend. Just don't hit it to hard. It is a clean and crisp impression that is deep and thick.
