Has anyone used their Cricut to create clear rubber stamps? If so, what did you use for the material ie polymer? and where did you purchase it? My normal on-line site for Cricut products is out of stock. Thanks

I tried it. Cut great but didn't seem to want to take any ink on to the surface. Never figured it out so I gave up.

I as well tried it out. I cut out a cloud from hello kitty greetings, as the solid image. And then cut out the butterfly as the silhouette which they both had to be cut out big and like the above post, they didn't take ink for me too well either. But I just bought it to try it out I wanted to make little sentiment sayings like thank you or something out of the fonts but I don't think they will cut out well at a small size.

I haven't done this, but I read a tip about sanding lightly the acrylic stamps to make them hold the ink. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose.

I tried several times with the Cricut stamp making kit. Did not work, cut great but does not stamp well at all. You have something to lose if you waste your money on buying the kit.

Thanks to those who posted. I found the "replacement" sheets at Amazon so will give it a try and let you know. I'll keep in mind using sandpaper to gently rough up the image to see if that helps the ink adhere. The youtube video I watched made it look so easy with no worries....hummmmm!!!!!

I hope someone figures this out and posts the tips, because I would like to give it a try.
Ususally, I use an eraser to rub the coating off of new stamps before I use them.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Depends on the quality of the stamp.

No luck with the clear stuff, but I have had better results with either 1.32 inch thick red rubber (sold in sheets at smallparts.com) or the Pazzles stamp material. Like the Pazzles stuff the best. Neither takes the ink like a commercially made stamp but both are better than the clear stuff and can cut more intricate details as well.

BigGrin I cut two images using Serenade and had the same results most of you had: 1. cuts great BigGrin 2. doesn't seem to take the ink Sad . BUT I'm okay with the "grainy" quality as I want background images.
