Mounting Precut Rubber Dies

My Stamping Bella order came just before Christmas. I haven’t had a chance to play with them yet, I wanted to get them mounted and ready to go today. Stamping Bella has some of the cutest whimsical images and the owner Emily is a sweet wonderful lady.

The stamps are pre-cut rubber dies (no foam) and are intended to be used without foam. The Stamping Bella site actually recommends that you use extra sticky doubled sided tape which you apply directly to the rubber die, and then you’re ready to stamp away! I know many ladies at Splitcoast have mentioned that they prefer to use Aleene’s Tack-it Over & Over or Tsukineko Tack N’ Peel with their rubber dies. I prefer to mount mine onto EZ Mount / Creative Cling. (Click photo for larger image)

Step 1: Place your rubber onto sticky side of EZ Mount or Creative Cling with the image face up.

Step 2: Sprinkle Baby Powder on to the sticky surface of EZ Mount (this will keep your scissor from getting sticky and make for smoother cutting). Spread the Baby Powder with your finger over the sticky surface.

Step 3: Then cut with your Kai Scissor along the precut edge of the stamp. You’re now ready to stamp with your acrylic blocks.

If you have wheels that you would like to unmount from the roller and use with your acrylic blocks, you have got to check out Laura’s blog Inky Dinky Doo, (SCS laurakj).

This is how I store all my unmounted stamps. I stamp the images onto a piece of cardstock which is measured to fit inside a CD Jewel Case (hub removed). I print a label with the stamp name and company, which I place on the cut cardstock. Time to get stamping!
