Hi friends! In today’s stamp school I am going to show you what to do with those sheets of red rubber you see at stamp shows or order online. It occurred to me that most new stampers buy their non wood mounted stamps in craft store from large stamp companies and they come prepared to use on your clear blocks. If you only buy from the big box craft stores you miss out on the wonderful diversity that the independent stamp company has to offer. I will show you how to trim and mount your stamps and then we will make this card!
Watch the video to see how it’s done!

I hope the options for stamp mounting seem less intimidating now, I like mounting my own because it saves money and I can use whatever method is right for my storage and budget. I also hope you give watercolor markers a try (borrow the kid’s Crayolas if you don’t have any!) because that is such a fun technique too! Thanks for stamping with me today and til next time happy crafting!
