HOW DO YOU USE // a seal stamp?

The beautiful stamps from Stamptitude have been in the shop for some time now. With a seal stamp you can make your cards even more beautiful and personal. Isn't it wonderful when you receive a card that it is sealed with a beautiful stamp? Stamptitude creates beautiful seal stamps in collaboration with talented calligraphers and designers. They certainly make your invitations a bit more beautiful.

It's finally time to make a short tutorial. Because how do you use a seal stamp? I'll show you in this blog with video.

Step 1: Get all the supplies ready

  • Wax
  • Seal stamp
  • Card/envelope
  • Candle
  • Spoon

Step 2: Melt the sealing wax
Place the wax stick on a metal spoon and gently heat it from below using a card.

Stamptitude's wax sticks are deliberately designed without a wick. Using a direct flame will cause soot stains on the seal. By using a spoon you get the most beautiful stamps.

You can also do this step with a glue gun. You then need the wax seal for glue gun and a glue gun.

Step 3: Pour the wax into the right place
Circle the outline of the stamp with a pencil, and pour just enough wax on it to fill the entire circle. Make sure the stamp is ready for this step. After a while you will know approximately how much wax you need.

Step 4 Place the stamp
Press the stamp firmly into the wax and then hold it for 10-15 seconds. Don't take it away sooner. Once the wax has cooled, you can lift the stamp without any effort. If it does not come off immediately, the wax is not yet dry.

You can also see it all in the video:

Troubleshooting:
Did you not wait long enough before removing the stamp? Do not try to pick the wax out. Simply use the stamp again. Then the leftovers will come along automatically.

Do you want to be able to stamp in quick succession? You can then cool the stamp with ice in between. Then dry the stamp thoroughly before using it again.

That's it! Do you have any questions? Please let us know in the comments!

Love,
Judith

Elke keer al wilde ik iets moois maken, dan kon ik niet de goede materialen vinden. Avonden lang struinde ik online naar kwalitatieve en vrolijke knutselmaterialen voor mijn projecten.

Daar begon het idee voor een shop, met een selectie van mooie materialen.

Met de blog en materialen hoop ik je te inspireren om creatief aan de slag te gaan.
