Unmounted Stamps: A Quick Overview & How To

Hi Everyone!

Congrats again to all the winners of the stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps! The stamps came unmounted so I thought I would do an overview with a bit of a how to so you can use the stamps as they are. So don't feel you need to mount them to use them. :0)

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

And let me say sorry you had to see my messy tables but I am working on projects for a card class at my house in a week. I moved all my furniture and set up tables in the living room. I think it will be really fun. I promise to do a video and take lots of pictures to show you what we made.

Take care and as always I wish you time to be creative but most of all time to stamp!

Till my next post...


  1. Great overview! I'd never seen one of those hot knives before. I just cut again with the scissors, but it is a lot of work cutting them when you've bought a plate or two of rubber, lol!

    Viva Las Vegastamps! does sell the cushion foam-http://www.vlvstamps.com/original-thin-static-cling-mounting-foam.html in both thick and thin.

    1. Glad you liked the overview!

      Thanks so much for the information! I love knowing where I can get supplies. :0)

      I totally forgot to say where I got the knife. They are also available from Red Letter Journals in Grove City and online at Create & Craft. I got mine from I think Ellen Hudson website. It's been a few months and I can't believe I already forgot! I think my brain is aging faster than my body! LOL

      Take care and enjoy your stamps!

  2. Shirley, very informative video. Thanks for doing this for us. LindaN

  3. Shirley, Thanks for making this informative video for us. LindaN

  4. wonderful video! Oohhh that knife looks great but I would be terrified to use one! I'm shocking with a craft knife ..... so I would be even worse with a hot one LOL.

    That quail is absolutely gorgeous! Wow don't these stamps leave a gorgeous impression ... they must be amazing quality.

    I have used those sheets of foam ... they cost about $10 here in Australia for 1 sheet! .... I didn't know you could just put images on the acrylic block!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!

    Messy craft tables!! phooey! wish I could come to the class.

    Thankyou so much for a wonderful video ... :)
