Default Enabler Alert..... Have you seen this?

Enabler Alert..... Do not read if you are afraid to spend some money....lol.

http://www.quickutz.com/index.asp?Ca...ping&FSCat=171

Has anyone seen or tried this yet? Quickutz has produced a STAMP KIT that will turn all your QK dies into stamps as well as die cuts. Looks interesting and got me to thinking.... oh Lordy I have 2 full 8x11 notebooks of dies (like 20 dies per page) and one of the notebooks is nothing but fonts....

Hmmmm... a way to make my QK obsession/collection do double duty.

If you have tried this new product from QK would you please tell me your thoughts on it. Is it worth the money? Curious here.

A few weeks ago someone posted that they had used the rubber foam from Sizzix.com to make rubber stamps - monogram ones. And, that it worked well. Maybe it's similiar? I think its a neat idea and seems pretty reasonable...and sizzix.com always runs specials.

Okay, I looked and I'm definitely subscribing to this thread to see if anyone has it or has read any reviews. I do have one comment or maybe more of a question..... what's the deal with the whole rocking thing they show in the demo. Curious as to why you would want to rock the image onto a piece of paper? Do you have to do that to get the image or is it just their way of illustrating stamping?

A couple of questions.... would this work with Sizzix dies you think? And, what exactly are the "rockers"? I couldn't figure it out from the site. Any one know?

In the second post it has the link to get supplies for stampin the sizzix dies. It looks a little simpler than the Quick Kutz. I believe you just cut a piece of foam from die cut and mount it on a handle and stamp...... but not positive

Oooh, bad! I love "double duty" on anything!

But I have to think: buy their foam? Use their system? Not me! Any "fun foam" or thin foam will do, as long as it's dense enough. (I confess -- I've used store-bought foam shapes as stamps before!)

As for the rocking technique, I've found that the foam is so thin it's easy to overstamp. If you have the foam on a curved mount, it's easy to just roll the image on (one way only). Stamps in the past were made on a curve & just a couple of years ago a company (can't remember which one) had a line of vinyl stamps that fit on a curved handle for decorating with.

Hope this helps!

Valli

ok, this got me thinking. Do you think that if you mounted the Quickutz foam piece to EZ mount or Creative Cling, and used acrylic blocks, you would not need the rockers and you would have a permanent stamp?

All I can say is WOW!

This is too great! I wonder if the Sizzix rubber works with Sizzlets? I have 3 sets of letters and I would love to use the as stamps.

I really am not intending to hijack Arlene's thread... so hopefully, the responses here are helpful to her as well.

Does anyone know if the Sizzix rubber and/or Quickutz foam are repositional sticky? I'm assuming not, based on Valli's comments.

Hey I am loving reading all your responses! I would love to use both my sizzix and QK on "double duty". Have not heard much about this until this morning when I came across it in a sale flyer.

Just keep the comments a 'coming!

I saw it at the store where I work and wondered why you couldn't just use the cheap sticky back foam from Michaels to do the same thing?

* There is another thread titled "I'm a Cheapo." I would at least try fun foam or the sticky stuff from Michaels.
* Long time ago a little neighbor boy wanted to make his own stamps... (he didn't like all my flowery things). We drew some pictures with a Sharpie on a cheap plastic place mat, cut them out with scissors, glued them to an acrylic block with ordinary glue stick. They worked fine! We washed them up with soap and water.
