I did a trial run yesterday with one stamp set that I had never put together. I like the idea of seeing the image on the back, so I put the clear image sticker on top of the back of the foam, then applied the Tack it Over and Over. I let it dry 12-14 hours, but when I checked it this morning, it was extremely sticky. I had to work to peel the stamp off of the acrylic block. I was wondering if this is typical--does it get a little less sticky after 1-2 uses? Or am I having the sticky problem because I applied the adhesive glue to the image sticker and not directly on the foam?
Something you said here though makes me wonder... you're put the ATIOAO on the foam? Unless this is a new trick I've never heard of, I have always applied it to the back of the rubber. I would think it would be pretty messy on the foam.

And I do it just like Jeanne.... slap it on the pant leg to lint it up a bit, and it's good to go. And yes, a little bit goes a long way.
