I was going to suggest putting your cardstock over a book of newsprint and stamping over that...but it sounds like you have something similar with the foam. Maybe you can try stamping standing up and pressing down on a more firm surface.

Another trick that's especially good for larger block stamps such as SU background stamps, is to take another woodmounted stamp that's the same size as the one you are stamping with and laying that, rubber side down, over the stamp that you are stamping with. This creates even distribution of pressure. After pressing down, release and remove the top stamp, but leave the stamp you stamped with alone for a few more seconds. This allows the stamp to release off of the paper and you can pull it up without any suction.

I hope this makes sense and that it can help somehow. Good luck!
BTW, I couldn't find your Three Wise Men card in the gallery.
