Tuesday Tips & Tricks Series - Distinktive™ Stamps from Stampin' Up!®


Distinktive Stamps

Today is Tuesday Tips & Tricks series and  I'm sharing our Distinktive™ Stamps.  There are several stamps in our catalogues that use this trademarked process and they are exclusive to Stampin' Up! Here's a card I shared using the Healing Hugs stamp set in my Just in Case Series.

Just in Case Healing Hugs


Easily stamp an image that has depth and texture without having use 2 or 3 steps. With Distinktive stamps you can create this dimension with just one image.


  1. Ink your stamp with one colour. Add more colours using ink and a dauber.
  2. The images are more defined with lighter colours or ink from a stamp pad that isn't too juicy.
  3. To prepare a pad for a better image you can carefully move the ink to one side of the pad with the back of a plastic spoon. Be careful not to cut the foam on the pad with a sharp edge.
  4. Use the area of the pad that doesn't have as much ink. After a few hours the ink will redistribute to the original saturation.
  5. You can also reink your pad with a refill.

The Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set is gorgeous and features these amazing stamps.
