Tuesday Tip - how to make clear mount stamps stick

Have you been having troubles getting your clear mount stamps to stick to your clear blocks?

Here's a quick tip (literally...quick!) that might help solve it.

Take the clear block and rub it against your jeans really fast...


Sometimes I also take the cling part of the stamp and rub it also...


To get a good stick, I put the stamp on my desk and then put the clear block on top and put a lot of pressure.


This picture shows the "bubbles" (at the top where "happy" is) which gives you a good idea that it has a good stick...


Something to note: The clear mount stamps from Stampin' Up! are made of the same high quality rubber as their wood mount stamps. They have been adapted for clear block mounting with self-clinging labels. The clear mount stamp sets not only help save space because of their thin case, but they are also economical in the long run since you don't have to pay for new blocks with every set once you have collected each of the blocks.

Disclaimer: Many of the "Tuesday Tips" I share each week have been gathered through my experience as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and crafter. I do not necessarily claim any of them as my original idea (unless it really is!), but rather things that I have seen here and there through blogging, surfing the web, attending events, and such. If there is a specific idea I have seen and want to share, I will be sure to give credit where credit is due. Hope you enjoy my "Tuesday Tips"!
