Default Unmounting Background Stamps

Do background stamps unmount easily or is there foam and glue left on the block?
Thanks for your help.

Honestly, I have unmounted a lot of stamps but I haven't done the big ones because I didn't know how to "stamp" them afterwards. I have heard people using the C plate of their cuttlebug or their big shot platform plate. I am not good with big stamps, I get mixed results so I keep them mounted.

I've taken a couple off the blocks so far and managed to get a good impression. I've got a big clear block that fits them just fine. I take the cricut spatula tool to pry the foam off the wood. Works great.

I don't use my big ones like a regular stamp, I lay it down on my table, ink it up and lay the cardstock on it and rub the back of the paper. Unmounting mine is on my to do list.

This is how I've always done my large stamps, as well. I figured that there was no reason to have a block under the rubber, so I've unmounted ALL of them (down to bare rubber - no foam or glue). Ten will lay nicely on top of one another in a clamshell case (no, they do not interfere with each other or warp or anything else)...

As far as ease of unmounting, they are about the same as any other stamp (except for the acreage, obviously)
