Remounting Wood Mounted Stamps

Today's post uses stamps that I haven't used in quite some time.  Mostly because they are fairly large, solid, wood mount stamps and I found it difficult to get a good clean impression from them. 
The introduction of stamping platforms made it easy to get good impressions for cling and photo polymer stamps, but not wood mount stamps.  And if you're like me, you have a rather large library of wood mount stamps that are no longer used much because you prefer to use a stamping platform with cling or photo polymer stamps.

I knew I could re-mount wood stamps but hadn't done it prior to this.  I was a little concerned I'd ruin the stamps.  But last weekend I decided - why not try? I'm not using the stamps as mounted anyway.

It was a very straightforward process. Ten seconds in my microwave and the rubber stamp came off with little effort.  The sticker on the top of the block also came off and I re-stuck (is that even a word?) it to the foam side of the stamp.  Five minutes later I had a set of cling mount stamps!

Super easy and useful.

I made this card for the CAS Colours and Sketches color challenge this week.  It's Seasonal Color week - pick a 2017 color challenge and use those colors to make a holiday/seasonal card!  This is a great challenge website - very fun challenges that switch weeks between being a color or a sletch challenge.  In January I will start as a member of the design team.  I hope you will play along with us!

  1. What a great idea. I am a terrible stamper so I love my Misti but like you I have abandoned all my wood mounted stamps. I will be trying your idea out! I am loving the combination of the stamping with the embossing in the background of your card - it is subtle but gives your card that real wow factor!

  2. So glad you are joining our team, Jeanne! Your card is fabulous! Wonderful CAS style and perfect use of the colors you chose!

  3. I'm so happy you will be on our team!!! Great use of colors.
