Default Dumb Question....

Just out of curiousity...
I just cut 15 new stamp sets and mounted them...

I now have this HUGE bag of rubber pieces....

Does anyone have any uses for them or shall I toss them?

they are great for using to make shaker cards, or anything where you might want to use a pop dot or foam tape!! I just learned this recently, and wish I had known that before. Now I keep all my trimmed rubber!!

You could cut some to make shadow stamps. Especially for behind little words like Everyday Flexible Phrases.

THANKS!
I had heard of using them in place of dimensionals.....

But I really like the idea of making up some of my own stamps for backgrounds.

I have used these as dimentionals as well, but I found that the sticky let go after a while, try one first and let it sit for a few days to make sure your project won't come apart, I know that humidity can be different and that may affect things. I'm not trying to be a party pooper, I would just hate for one of your works of art to fall apart in its recipient's hands!

I have looked and looked, I know I have seen a mosiac stamp made with lots of little pieces and it was shaped like a hand. It was so cool. If anybody finds it, please post a link.

I've added some glue to the spongey part to make them stay stuck when I've used less tacky pieces as a demonional.

Leslie, your card is BEAUTIFUL! I love it...TFS!

Here is the link to the one I personally love! The lady used scrap rubber to make a hand and then used the retired set PEACE ON EARTH. Thanks for reminding of this site.

I make a background with my scraps too, modelled after the Busy Blocks wheel. Here's a couple of links to cards in my gallery where I used it:

That's the hand I was thinking of! I'm glad you found it! I think it's awesome!
