I finally received my Medallion background stamp.  I had been saving the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper for that special stamp and decided to use the Medallion background stamp with it.


I am not very happy with the way it is stamping.  I can't get it dark enough nor a clear dark image and I was using basic black.  I tried sanding the stamp, using the brayer to make sure the stamp was inked evenly, and setting the background stamp upside down and laying the card stock over it and then using the brayer over the card stock.  Nothing work!  Anyone had any luck with this background stamp?

I'll keep trying different things because I love this stamp and I don't want to give up on it.

    Hi Rachel, my upline sanded her Medallion stamp with the sanding block and we used it for a demo swap, it stamped beautifully..worth a try!

    Hi Linda

    I tried that but maybe I have to be a bit more aggressive with the sanding block. Worth giving it a try.

    Thanks for responding!

    Hi. I just got one of these stamps and I didn’t have any problems. I did count 7 seconds while it was on the paper to give the ink time to “soak in” off the stamp, but mine stamped fine first time out of the box. I didn’t even sand it. Good luck with yours. It is a beautiful stamp.
