I already have and use all those things often. I love some of the "old" techniques!

And for anyone who enjoys using older stamps in challenges, there’s also one out there in blogland - Retro Rubber Challenge. Challenges are fortnightly and vary in type with the requirement to use stamps older than one year being the only common denominator. I manage to play along sometimes.

Aleenes worked well with my clear blocks but the adhesive just seems to stick to my Misti lid and not stay on the unmounted rubber, as it does with a clear block.

Purple Onion Designs sells clear mounting stamps. I believe it was wavejumper who turned me on to them (thank you!). I can get a few stamps on them at once and they work well. The only issue I have is getting the backing acetate sheets off.

Yes and yes and yes, Bohodiva I have to laugh when the adoring fans ooh and aah over techniqes and tools that we used years ago. Just like slimline cards. I've been making those for years! Ta-da! They've re-invented the wheel! LOL

I had to chuckle when I saw Jennifer McGuire and Simon Hurley promoting the moldable foam blocks. I have those! They must be 15 yrs old but still work.
And, do you remember when "sanding" paper was a trend? I watched JM's video on popped embossing last night using a sanding block on raised impressions...I remember when that was the trend 10-15 yrs ago as well, we just used fine sandpaper on white core cardstock. Do you remember? Now Paper Artsy is coming out with special set of "sanding blocks" for the technique. lol, lol...I already have sanding blocks for my finger nails.
https://youtu.be/GZiWPCZseOM
And that is why I am a craft supply hoarder....sigh. Yes, I have two of those moldable foam blocks for making textured impressions. A friend of mine was tossing hers out years and years ago and I caught her before she got rid of all of them. Have I even used the two that I saved? I think you can guess the answer to that...but I still have them!! Oh, and I bought a sanding block for sanding edges and embossed impressions years back as well, and still have that. In fact, I was going through my tools in the craft room this last week and found my sanding block. Didn't even realize that it's a "thing" again.

After seeing the videos using the moldable foam I'll play with them using embossing folders and dies for making backgrounds.

I have sanding blocks from way back when, too! Guess I need a couple 3D embossing folders.

This thread was fun to read. My very favorite oldie has not been mentioned yet -- Posh Impressions by Dee Gruenig. Way back, late '90s she was often on The Carol Duvall Show and I loved watching her stamp. I shopped at her Orange County stores a few times and did samples for their website, kind of an early version of a design team. I had a ton of those stamps but, sadly, most got thrown away with my last purge. The rubber was badly cracked and the foam on the foam mounted ones was brittle and crumbly. I think if I had used them more, ink and proper cleaning could have saved them from the trash.

Oh yes, I remember Dee Gruenig collection I had several of her stamps, books, and the Marvy brush markers. And, Carol Duvall was one of my favorite shows, it would be nice to see her reruns.

When you think about... a lot of these new designers with companies were probably "babies/toddlers" when we started stamping. They're re-marketing old products for a new generation of stampers.
I've noticed the re-marketing trend with fashion as well. I recall reading somewhere the fashion trend cycles repeat every 25 - 30yrs... We're seasoned, experience stampers, we've been there, done that, and have products to prove it.

Mary Beth, I have some of the old Posh Impressions stamps in my stash still. Fortunately, most of them have stood the test of time, but a couple of them had to be tossed out because of the same issues you mention. I think that many of us were not aware of the importance of cleaning the old ink off the stamps before storing them, and the rubber deteriorated. I know that pigment ink can be really damaging, especially the metallic ones. I've had metallic pigment ink completely ruin several of my old Anna Griffin stamps.
Dee Gruenig was such a hoot on her videos. She obviously had a blast doing her demonstrations, and that made people want to buy her products. How fun to be on her early design team.

Talking about Dee Gruenig made me think of Suze Wienberg. I still have a big jar of Ultra Think Embossing Enamel. Anyone else remember melting it and stamping into it before it hardened to made embellishments?

Yes, I remember Angie. It hasn't been all that long since I've actually used it. I still get a thrill when it turns out to be a beautiful piece.

I had forgotten all about UTEE and using a gadget called Melting Pot. Then I found mine from early 2000's while packing for a move. Not sure I will ever use it again but I couldn't throw it our.

I've still got my UTEE and my melting pot. I need to use that UTEE again, and I use my melting pot to make candles sometimes. Wow! Dee Gruenig, Suze Weinberg, Carol Duvall! A nice trip down Memory Lane! I learned so many techniques and got so many ideas from them. I really miss the Carol Duvall show.

Oh yes, I remember Suze. I saw her demo in person at one of the many conventions I attended.
I have a jar of her UTEE, that is decades old and never used, lol...It was one of those conventions purchases..

I also saw Suze Weinberg in person. In fact, it was the very first in- person demo I saw at my first stamp show when I was a fairly new stamper. What great memories. I was in awe at that show. It was huge- so much to take in and I think I just walked around in a daze because I had finally found my people haha.

YES!!! And I also still have one of those big jars of UTEE, about half full : )
I remember most all of the stamp companies mentioned in this thread and still have many of my oldest stamps. My original favorite companies were PSX, Penny Black and Impression Obsession. I still buy frequently from PB and IO (I love the images Dini does!).
This thread is so fun; going down memory lane!

Here's a few cards made with old PSX (1996) and Hero Arts (2007) red rubber stamps.
They've been unmounted and stamped with TH stamp platform.
Sorry I don't know why the hummingbird image is loading upside.
