Problems with stamping

i try and i try and i always get some slight boarder or small line with
my stamping images..i try not to roll the stamp and i just press
straight down but i seem to keep smudging or getting a border which
doesnt look neat..how can i stop doing this.?
any advice will be appreciated.
when i stamp my ink pad it gets on the edges and if i just use the small
square ones i cant get enough ink on the image so it seems like im doing
something wrong..
help....cathy

Use an exacto knife to cut to the very edge of your stamp, that should help solve the problem--just heard this tip the other night at a Stampin' Up party.

If the border of the stamp is fairly large I have cut the border with an exacto knife. Otherwise after I ink the stamp I just make sure to wipe off the edges with a baby wipe or paper towel then stamp. If you are using a quick drying ink then I usually huff (breath on it) before I stamp the image to add a little moisture.
