TIP: Converting stamps to clear mount

If you are like me and have been at this hobby - stamping - for a while now you will probably be running out of room for all your stamps.

Years ago I started unmounting my wood mount stamps and rollograph wheels and now I mostly buy unmounted or even digi stamps. 

But I have a ton of stamps still on wood that I really must do something with.

Today I came across this blog post in my favourites and I thought I would share it with all of you.  In case you haven't seen it that is!

I really like this post because it's simple to do for stamps that you haven't mounted yet -use the stamp image stickers and tombo mono glue to "convert" the wood mount stamps into clear/cling mount ones. 

BUT I also love her TIP of peeling off an old sticker from the wood block and using that again on your rubber.  I hadn't thought about that and I did throw out a bunch of them in my frenzy to unmount!

Until Next Time!


  1. Thank you so much for telling us about this tip. This is awesome and I bet putting Tombow on some of the clear stamps that won't stick will also work. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!!

  2. Thanks for reminding me Marie. I'm still working on mine. But I've done enough to allow me to by more :) So until I run out of room again :)
