Default Using Martha Stewart Transfer Adhesive

I've tried regular glue pads with rubber stamping..tried all sorts of different brands, and I can never get anything to stick very well to the images. I've tried flocking powder, glitter...I can't figure out what my problem is. I was wondering if you can use transfer adhesive with rubber stamps? I had purches a MS flocking kit on clearance, with some double adhesive images, and it worked perfectly! I saw there is transfer adhesive to be used with flocking sheets, and stencils. Could stamps be dipped in a bit of shallow transfer adhesive?

Phew, I'm glad someone else is curious about this...I thought maybe I had asked a really stupid question I think I will go ahead and buy the transfer adhesive since it isn't that expensive (especially with one of those 40% off coupons), and give it a try. I thought I better use a stamp I'm not terribly fond of, just incase I'm unable to remove the adhesive from the stamp. I'll report back with my findings

I was thinking...what if you used the glue ink pad to stamp your stamp on paper, then used the transfer paper on top of the stamped image on your paper...would the transfer paper stick to the glue and then apply your flock. That way your stamp wouldn't get all gummy with the transfer paper.
Let us know how it turns out.

I ended up buying the Martha Stewart Transfer Adhesive (liquid form). I tried both dabbing the adhesive on the sponge, and dabbing the stamp directly into a little adhesive on a piece of plastic. I have to say, I like the results much better than a glue pad. I didn't notice much of a different in the way I applied the adhesive to the stamp. I don't think it would give a real crisp image with a stamp with fine details, however, because it is a bit on the thick side. One big advantage with using the adhesive is it's white, so it was easy to tell what parts of my stamp were covered with adhesive.

I tried loose flocking powder, flocking sheets, and fine glitter. They all seemed to adhere really well. I also tried flower soft, which stuck much better with the transfer adhesive, compared to regular glue pads.

It does take some practice to get the right amount of adhesive on the stamp, but I didn't find it "pull my hair out" frustrating.

I tried both rubber and clear cling stamps....both seemed to work fine with the transfer adhesive.

Clean up was super easy as well-just used my unscented baby wipe as soon as I was done stamping. The transfer adhesive also seemed much easier to clean off of my stamps than any glue from a glue pad.
