Thank you every one for your suggestions, they have all been very helpful
You're welcome!

I stopped using scissors cos I tend to undercut and my skinny stamps end up with hardly any foam for clinging.

I put my EZmount sheet, with the bare rubber stamps placed "jigsaw puzzle style," on a tempered glass cutting board, and kept a damp rag handy for wiping off the blade.
I use a cheap Ikea mirror - it's square and fits one sheet of foam nicely.
