Lightroom: Cloning Isn't Cloning

In my LR3 program, I have been trying to use the clone/heal tool for almost a week now and it isn't working. Meaning I end up with 2 circles on the image but nothing changes. I can move it around as much as I want but nothing 'clones' or 'heals'. The spot stays there.

I have shut it down and even tried on my other computer that I have it installed on as well with the same issue. Reinstall?

what OS/version are you on?

Is Lightroom up-to-date? (version 3.5)

I actually did have an update I hadn't done yet! Just finished the update so now I'm up to the 3.5 but still nothing. And I'm on Windows.

Where do you have Opacity set? If it's less than 100%, what's underneath the stamp will show through.

OMG, I AM SO STUPID! IDK why in the world I didn't think of checking that! So as I hang my head in shame, that is the problem. I guess I didn't think about that b/c it stopped working in the middle of using it. Thanks!

LOL. We've all done like that before. No worries.
