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 LOVE sunflowers. LOVE THEM and this stamp is no exception. It makes a clean impression and looks gorgeous! It can also be used as a border or in your mandala designs. I've gotten a clean impression each time too.
This stamp is a little smaller than I anticipated, but I really love how it looks! I've added it as a border stamp on circle discs, and it comes out super cute!
I really like this stamp. It is great for boarders but I can't figure out what else to do with it. I do have a little bit of a hard time getting a good impression even with the tap and tilt method. But I never give up so I will keep on trying.
I like the stamp but I've had trouble lining it up and trying to get a full sunflower with it. But that is my weakness and I get a nice impression from it.
