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.

I haven't used this stamp much, yet. I live in a state where people love outdoor activities so I know I will get a lot of use of it, pairing it with the little camper or animals. I have used the top leafy part of it on the mason jar stamp with the ladybug and dragonfly stamp to make bug in a jar necklaces. It is very easy to stamp to get a good, clear impression.
