- Cut design from the Fun Stamp Transfers sheet. Remove the clear acetate cover. Lay face down on the Carving Block. Use a sponge to saturate the transfer with water. Let set for 60 seconds. Remove the paper backing from the transfer. Allow to dry.
- Hold the detail handle (green) tool like a pencil and begin carving small thin scraps through the smaller open areas of the design.
- Transition to a larger tool blade as the carving areas become larger.
- When the design is complete use the (blue) handle tool or a scissors to trim close to the design.
- Trace the outer edge of the carved stamp onto the adhesive sheet. Cut, remove the paper back, and apply to the block. Remove the remaining paper back and secure the stamp to a wood block.
- Cover your workspace. Stretch the table runner onto the workspace and secure with the masking tape.
- Place a small amount of paint onto the plate. Use a piece of sponge to apply a thin coat of paint to the stamp.
- Working from the center of the table runner, stamp the Terra Cotta half slice and flip the stamp and stamp a second time to create a full slice.
- Continue with the Yellow slices and finish with the Fresh Foliage half slices.
- Stretch the napkin onto the workspace and secure with the masking tape.
- Work from the center edge of the napkin, stamp a full slice using the Terra Cotta and one using the Medium Yellow. Add a half slice using the Fresh Foliage paint.
- Clean stamp immediately after use with warm soap and water. Air dry for best results.
- HEAT SET:
- Prevent residual paint transfer by covering the stamped area with a scrap piece of white fabric or parchment paper. Press with a dry iron set to medium setting.
- Fabric items are washer/dryer safe when heat set.
