Evergreen IOD Christmas Stamp is one of two stamps introduced by the IOD team for Christmas Creating and home decor.
For anyone who hasn’t used the IOD Décor Stamps, they are essentially what they sound like. A stamp. Similar to a stamp that you might’ve used as a child- but magical. The IOD Décor Stamps have the power to transform an item that you found on the side of the road to an item that will be envied by all!
You will use the Holly Jolly 12″x12″ IOD Stamps set over and over.The IOD décor stamps aren’t just for furniture and home décor, you can use them to transform your food art as well! The stamps are made from a food safe material (do not use the same sets for food and paint ￼;)). But be warned- they are not for high heat applications. Do NOT put in dishwasher, they will melt at extreme heats. And then you will be extremely heated too.
How to Prepare your Evergreen Stamp
PREPARATION IS KEY
Before removing the Evergreen IOD Christmas Stamp from backing, condition your stamps with very fine sandpaper[220 grit], scuff the surface in two directions. This helps the mediums stay put, and not bead (which some types, like ceramics glazes, tend to do).
Remove stamps from backing when ready to use. This takes some force, but don’t worry, the stamps are strong.

We find that the easiest way to care for and clean stamps is to keep wet wipes nearby. Use them to spot clean your stamps thus avoiding the medium drying all the way on the stamp surface. Then, when you have time, wash them with mild soap and warm water. For some mediums you may find that you need a stamp cleaner. Use one that is safe for clear stamps. After thoroughly cleaned, place them back on the clear backing for storage
