Guide To Mounting Your Clear-Mount Stamp Sets

Hi all,

Okay, so with the new addition of Clear-Mount stamps to the Idea Book & Catalogue at the beginning of this month I thought I'd make a step-by-step guide on how to mount your clear-mount stamps ready to be used from the moment you receive them.

Until recently, all my purchases have been wood-mount, but I decided to bite the bullet and order some clear-mount stamps as I think there's many advantages to these.

Once these clear-mount stamps arrived, I opened the case and started to read the instructions on the left hand side so that I knew how to mount these correctly :)

Below is a step-by-step picture guide that I did from receiving your first clear-mount stamps as they come to the finished result. Hope this helps you with your first purchase of clear-mount stamps from Stampin' Up!

Step-By-Step Guide to Clear-Mount Stamps

1. Clear-Mount Stamp Set in dvd like case for easy storage.
2. Inside the clear-mount stamp set case.

3. Red rubber and stamp label sheet.
4. Pop out a rubber stamp and carefully peel off the top of the corresponding label.

5. The back of the red rubber stamp when popped out of it's set of rubber stamps.
6. Peel off the white backing sheet from the red rubber stamp to reveal the grey foam.

7. Place the red rubber stamp over the top of the sticky clear label, lining it up exactly for correct placement.
8. Carefully remove red rubber stamp from label sheet so that the clear sticky label is adhered nicely to the back of the red rubber.

9. The underside of the red rubber with the clear label adhered.
10. All rubber stamps adhered with the clear sticky labels and placed back into the original rubber slots.

11. The underside of the red rubber with all clear sticky labels adhered.
12. Back of the clear-mount rubber stamp set in it's dvd case.

Hope this has been helpful :) Thanks for stopping by and have a relaxing Sunday.

Bye for now,
