I like these because if you don’t press too hard, you can get a nice crisp heat embossed image. Well done Altenew!
I have been going back and forth about these black background sentiments...but now that I have them ... I love them! The sentiment encased in black just makes them pop! Since these are what I called solid style stamps, I just condition them by using conditioning eraser, or just rub my finger over it. After conditioning them they work wonderfully. I have been adding these sentiments to my duoprinting w/chlorophyll cards lately, and everyone that I have sent or gifted these cards loves them.
I read all of the negative reviews and was super hesitant to give this stamp set a try, but I'm glad that I jumped in and ordered it. I took the advice of using a stamping platform and that has worked wonders. Having a juicy ink pad (stampin' up) also makes it easier to transfer the color in 2 tries versus my altenew ink pads which always require multiple (3x or more) tries to get enough coverage for a whole stamp from day 1.
These stamps were a big disappointment. Even after conditioning the stamps getting a crisp, dark image was not possible for me. I would not recommend them.
Thanks for posting in your feedback and we're sorry to hear it is not giving you a crisp stamped image. We'll be happy to look into this for you.
Can you please send us the photos of the stamped impression and the stamp surface along with your order number?
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
What I like most about this set is being able to add a bold sentiment to my cards that coordinates and highlights colors that I have used for images and backgrounds.
