If you follow my Stampin' Pretty blog, you know that I'm totally nutso about Stampin' Up! clear-mount rubber stamps. Efficient storage, visability and savings . . . all play into my clear-mount stamp love fest.
With the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog, Stampin' Up! introduced Clear-Mount Cling Foam (124236). I can convert my wood-mount stamps to clear-mount. Woo hoo! I took the plunge yesterday to get familiar with the product and do the "switcheroo" of my favorite wood-mount rubber stamps to clear. I found that the Walnut Hollow Hot Knife is my new best friend for this process. Thinking you might be interested, too, I whipped up today's video tutorial. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
PLEASE BE CAREFUL. The hot knife is really, really hot and shouldn't be used around the kiddos. The Stampin' Up! Circle Scissor Plus Glass Mat (112531) protected my work surface below.
STAY TUNED! There's even a sneak peek at the end of the video of two new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini products (Spice Cake Designer Series Paper & Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon). Card details and photos will be on tomorrow's post!
IMPORTANT NOTE: You can use (and Stampin' Up! recommends) using their Craft & Rubber Scissors (103179) for trimming the foam adhesive around the stamps. I used the Walnut Hollow Hot Knife for quick, precise and less sticky results. Stampin' Up! will not be liable for damage to customer stamps if the hot knife method is used.
