I wonder if you could apply some Tombo Multi glue to them, let it dry, and then it be repositionable? I guess that would be an easy thing to test with a small foam shape. I have some foam that comes with the sticky on the back. I did have some adhesive leaves and such that were foam shapes that came in a bag from a store, and I stuck them to the backs of bottle lids to make them reusable stamps.
Thanks for sharing Natasha's video! I love being able to stretch the use of supplies!

It's worth a try. I have all that is needed on hand as well.

We have a tutorial (and a Technique Spotlight gallery for it) here

Die Cut Stamps on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

and yes, it works well to use repositionable glue. But because the foam is by nature not very solid, if you think you want to use it again, it's probably better to stick it to some clear packaging as a permanent backing, like a substitute for a wood block. You'll have to stick to something temporarily anyway, to store it without it getting bent or dented or whatever...

I'll try and attach a photo of one I made using TH wildflowers, which is permanently stuck to some clear packing, and it's the packing that has the Tombow on it. In this case, my stamp is two layers of foam, not just one.

It looks as if I have mostly used distress, and with that wildflower I used Delicata metallics and Versafine. I'd like to try again with the DOX.

I do own DOX and maybe a delicata metallics, will have to try those and see results.
Thanks

I wonder how the left over pieces of the two-sided sticky sheets from Stampin' Up would work. You know...all that space around the actual graphic that we throw away? Sorry for the oversized picture.

Love this technique suggestion! How about using the Misty to arrange the stamps to stamp in the same position over and over?

Great tip on layering it up and then adhering to something stiff, so that it's easier to use and doesn't get bent. I cut some craft foam with the TH wildflowers dies, and loved the look but had the hardest time working with the thin, floppy shape. I still have it somewhere in my craft room and will cut another layer and adhere to packaging to make it easier to use. Thanks!

I've found that foam stamps in general aren't great for intricate or detailed images, but better for bolder shapes, or softer lines. Although the TH wildflower dies are very intricate, I went for a more a natural, artistic stamped image, rather than detailed. I used Distress Oxide, Distress Inks, and pigment ink pads. That was what worked best for me.
