Do you have some favorite old stamps that has no foam backing....that are just rubber? (This also works on unmounted stamps).. I have several old See D's stamps that I really love to use, especially my faux stitching and swirl ones, but I hate the fact they have no foam backing so I decided to experiment and this is what I came up with. There are several pictures....so grab a cup of coffee or tea and I promise to make this little tutorial as clear as mud. I would also like to enter it in Top Tip Tuesday . BTW if you haven't visited that new blog yet.... you really should. They are having some wonerful tips and techniques posted their weekly. Also if you have a tip or technique that you use, why not post it... You could win a fabulous prize.
Step 1: Lay your unmounted stamp face up on the printed side of the EZ Mount foam backing paper and draw around your stamp.
Step 2: Cut out traced image
Step 3: Use removeable tape and tape your stamp to your acryllic block. Turn EZ Mount cut out image over to unprinted side(this is the side that will be mounted to your acryllic block (cling side not sticky side) when it is finished..the printed side of EZ Mount is the sticky side that you adhere to the back of the stamp). Peel off the paper but save it to put back on when you are finished stamping...
Step 4: Ink up your stamp (I use Stazon, as it seems to last longer and dries quickly) and carefully line your stamp up over your cut out EZ Mount and stamp your image... Again make sure this is the unprinted side of the EZ Mount...the cling side not the sticky side. Placed save paper back over stamped image to protect the cling side.
Step 5: Turn your stamped image over and carefully remove the printed paper from the EZ Mount cut out that you just stamped. Carefully position and line up your stamp face up on this sticky side and press firmly to adhere.
Step 6: Your stamp is now ready to use on your acryllic blocks. When done remove them and store them as you do all unmounted stamps.
If I have made this as clear as mud please feel free to contact me using the link in my side-bar and I will try to further confuse you. LOL..
