How to Type Within a Stamp

I created a stamp with a text box within it.  I uploaded it to the Stamps feature within Adobe, but when I go to use it, the form text box isn't there.  Then, I try a different work around and hit edit.  I try to type within the stamp that way, but the text box appears behind the stamp, and when I try to arrange the text box to come forward, it doesn't.  How do I fix this?  Currently, I'm having to edit each individual document, add an image, and then add a text box in the edit tool box.  It's frustrating because this is taking WAY longer than it should... thanks in advance.

Creating a dynamic stamp has a few more steps than you've described. 

The article Bernd posted is excellent, but quite technical.   Read it and and the information at this link, and watch the "Stamps gong wild" video. These will give you a good idea of what can be done with a stamp, and how to go about doing it:

You should also consider hiering a developer/trainer to either help you with stamp or create it.
