Tutorial: The Cling Mount Lesson

Welcome everyone – this weeks’ tutorial is a review of the video for mounting your red rubber stamps. You might find the opportunity to purchase stamps at a savings when they are unmounted. Some people are wary of this because they don’t want to mount their own, but it really isn’t a big deal, and it is worth the savings! This lesson shows how to accomplish mounting, plus some info about “deep etching” and also a great stamp storage idea!

This is one of Sandy’s older videos so please note that the “giveaway” at the end of the video is expired. Aww, shucks. 🙂

Here is the video:

Stamper’s Best is the source for our freebie OWH stamp for the backs of your cards! If you don’t have one, be sure to get in your request here. There are many others available at the Stamper’s Best website, including a whole line of Operation Write Home stamps that can be seen here. Best of all, they donate a dollar for the purchase of every OWH fundraiser stamp sold.

Just a head’s up… I know that a lot of us collected the adorable Ciara stamp from Stamper’s Best when she first came out. We’ll be using this stamp for a fun tutorial in June for Flag Day. Just wanted to give everyone time to pick up this stamp if you would like to play along!

  1. Hello, I never would have been able to picture myself making such beautiful cards to send to our Veterans. Thank you for the wonderful tutorials. Jean Mc Farlane

  2. Instead of using the scissors, I’ve been using a hot knife, which works FAR better! You don’t get sticky residue on the edge of the knife, like you do on the scissors, plus it’s lots faster. There will be an odor of burning, but it’s not that bad (or crack the window if it bothers you). I also trim the rubber first so I can place the images right next to each other and not waste so much cling cushion (if they come on a sheet like they did in this video). For mounting I hot laminate cardstock and then put it and the stamps in clear sheet protectors which go in 3″ ring binders sorted by type.
