I wanted to update you on how the stamp unmounting and using Ez-Mount is going.
All I can say is that I'm ADDICTED!!
I started off mounting my non Stampin' Up! rubber on Ez-Mount and storing them in CD cases.
Then I moved on to my favourite retired SU! sets. I just tore the rubber off the foam and the wood block and laid it on the sheet of Ez-Mount.
Now I've moved onto NEW SU! sets that have never been mounted (using cling vinyl for that).
Next I'll be unmounting my current SU! stamp sets.
This is so addicting - I cannot believe how fast it's going and how much space I'm freeing up!
I'm using the Walnut Grove Hot Knife to cut the Ez-Mount foam away from the rubber - it's like cutting through butter with a hot knife.
I got my hot kife as part of a kit at Michaels a few years ago (woodburning, soldering and burnishing tips included). The regular price on the kit is $49.99 CAD but they're on sale this week for $19.99 CAD! The hot knife alone is $26.99 CAD (but there's a 50% off coupon this week too).
I picked up some replacement blades (2 for $8.99 CAD) because mine is getting quite blackened and gummy (although it still cuts well after 2 years).
If you're going to be doing a lot of Ez-Mount mounting I highly recommend getting a hot knife!
So my final word on this....
Hot Knife $19.99 (at Michaels)
Ez-Mount $5 a sheet (from Old Island Stamp Co)
Extra space & seeing where you stamp PRICELESS!!!
I'll be posting BEFORE and AFTER storage photos soon...
