Tool Time Tuesday!....Clear Mounting Stamps

Have you checked out the Clear Mount Stamps from Stampin’ Up!? I said “Clear Mount” not “Clear Stamps”. These stamps are the same quality Red Rubber Stamps that we have come to expect from Stampin’ Up!. They are just made to be used with a clear block instead permanent wood blocks. They are also a bit less expensive. They come in DVD size storage boxes, awesome! I can store 3 of these sets in the same space that it takes to store one wood mount set in. Think, tripple your stamp storage. You could have tripple the stamps without your husband catching on! lol.


When you get your stamps they will be in a sheet. You will punch out the stamps one at a time and mount the sticker on them.

It has a paper backing. Peel that off.

Now you can see these stamps already have a great foam backing.

This is the sticker sheet.

Peel the paper backing off of the image you are using. There is a slit in the middle of the paper backing on each sticker to make this easy.  Leave it on the sheet, just take the backing off.

Line your stamp up to the outline on the sticker sheet and press firmly.

Lift the stamp up and your sticker is mounted perfectly on the back of the stamp.  This side is what sticks to the acrylic blocks.   When you go to stamp it you can see the image through the block so you know just where it is going to stamp.
Now about the clear blocks, you can purchase them from Stampin’ Up! singly, or in a set.  Stampin’ Up also sells this awesome case to store your blocks in.
