Default Q re: CTMH acrylic stamp sets


I know this may sound like a silly question - but I am new to using Close to My Heart sets. I just won a set on eBay and didn't realize it was for the sheet of acrylic, peel-off stamps only. The acrylic block was not included.

Do I need just one acrylic block that will fit any of the stamps? Do I literally peel off a stamp and place it on the block while I use it? How do I clean these stamps?

The images are each about 1.5" in diameter, so could I purchase one acrylic block (2" square) to use with the set?

TIA!

Lisa

Hi Lisa -

Yes you would need to purchase about a 2x2 block. And when you do stamp place the foam cushion underneath the project to get the clearest image. You can clean these stamps with regular stamp cleaner - if they become too dirty or lose their stickiness wash them in warm mildly soapy water, rinse and let airdry
