A ha... you have "defined" the problem.  You are using the wrong tool!
I suppose to save space on the tool pallet, Photoshop has several tools
hiding in many of the tool icons.  If they have more than one tool,
there is a small arrow facing right in the right hand lower corner.

The Pattern Stamp tool and the Rubber Stamp tool both occupy the same
location on the toll pallet.  To switch from one to the other left click
AND HOLD the left button down on the tool icon and shortly a little
secondary tool set will open.  The the case of the pattern/rubber
stamps, there are only two.  Move the mouse cursor to land on the
non-ghosted one and let go of the mouse button.  You will now have
switched to the opposite stamp.  To chick, just put the mouse cursor on
the tool icon in the tool pallet and wait a moment for the tool to be
identified via a little yellow box with a description in it-- it should
now read "Rubber Stamp Tool (S)".  If it still says "Pattern Stamp Tool
(S)", then once again click and hold with left mouse button and choose
the other stamp.

Once you have the Rubber Stamp Tool activated, you can use the procedure
that has been discussed.  It is a lot quicker than the way you have been
doing it.
