Q &A

The other day one of my customers who loves stamping emailed me and said that she was having a problem with her clear mount stamps. She said ” My clear mount stamps are not sticking to my clear blocks, what should I do”?
I told her that she could do one of three things:
1. Use your snail and put a little bit on the back of your stamp.
2. Get Stampin’ Ups two way glue pen and apply it all over the back of the stamp and let dry. Then it will stick.
3. Or three buy some Aleenes tack it over and over again from your local craft store. Mix equal parts glue and water, and add a thin
coat to the back of your stamps. Let dry and you are good to go.

Time and money saving tip

Do you want to stamp and don’t have the money for stamp cleaner or cleaning pad? Run out of stamp cleaner? You can make your own quick and easy. Take an old towel you don’t use any more and fold it into a square. Then take a spritzer bottle and fill it 3/4 full of water, then add 3 to 4 drops of baby shampoo. ( the travel size is the best to get because you don’t use much). Put in 1 tsp of glycerin ( can be found in the drug store). Put cover on and shake well. Spray on towel ( making Sure you don’t spray yourself HA ! HA!). and clean your stamp by rubbing it back and forth. The shampoo cleans your stamp and the glycerin conditions it.
ENJOY! Brenda
