Plastic sample spoons from the ice cream stores works really well. I have the sandwich containers (dollar store kind) and I just put the paper on top of the e.p. and shake the container back and forth. Pick it out with tweezers and flick the back of the cardstock to get the loose e.p. off of it.

My tip is that I use my craft heater to seal the ends of the syntetic ribbons, so they don't fray. I found this out by accident. Happy accident, but accident!

This sounds great! I've read in this thread that this an old SU color (classic ink pad). Could I use another of the new SU yellow ink pads? Thanks!

What is clear cling vinyl - in the fabric section? I am clueless.

It's what you use for a clear plastic tablecloth. Or to make window clings from.

I am so, so sorry I'm just now seeing this question! Yikes. I'm sure you've already found out by now, especially since since Linda kindly answered. These are the ones I bought on Amazon, but as I said, the much cheaper vinyl from Walmart works fine if you don't mind cutting it down.

Hi,
To eliminate the *wobbling* put another stamp on the block on the other side...don't ink it lol, just there for balance

Works great! Unless you have the new MISTI then not necessary!

Especially for 2 step stamping, you can peek around the left side and see where the rubber is to place the image exactly where you want it. I place the label in the lower corner too, to remind me where the rubber is mounted.

I mount all of my stamps this way. The only downside is your stamp can wobble because it is not centered, but once you get used to this, for me, it has worked just great!! Wouldn't do it any other way.

LOL, That was not clear
Not the opposite side of the block of course...lol, same side as the stamp in the corner....just another stamp somewhere on the block to even it up.
Hope that makes sense!

I have a card file of my Stampin Up stamps. They are 4 x6 with the name at the top and how many stamps are in a set and if wood, clear or photopolymer. I copy a picture out of the catalog and tape it to the card. Sometimes also on the back of the card for larger sets. Along the right hand side, I put the catalog year, page number and price and then the next year add the new page number. If it gets retired I put an "R" by the last catalog date. I have alphabet dividers and keep them in a file box.


I store my sets (all brands) in plastic drawers labeled floral, wedding, anniversary, sympathy, kids, sayings etc. I do pull out some birthday, thank you, thinking of you, sympathy words and sayings and keep them in their own labeled drawer. I write the set name on the side of the wood block. I may have to go thru the drawer to find what I want, but then I find a set that I forgot about or want to try another time.


I also, finally, sorted my papers by colors instead of Stampin Up's color categories as I have a lot of old paper from them. I store each color in a hanging file folder by color name and ROYGBV etc in a hanging file box. I label them with a small piece of that cardstock, name, color category and put an "R" on the label if retired. I love that and find I use some of the older papers now that I love but couldn't seem to get to. Can also compare the colors easier.


I'm always attempting (not necessarily succeeding) in getting better organized.

This thread is so large that I actually haven't researched my tip. I used to stamp all of my sets on paper and then kept them in a binder - but that became too cumbersome. Now what I do is take pictures of the stamp sets, dies, stencils, etc. with my iPad and categorize them into folders. I then use a flash drive and load them onto it and when I want to research for a card, I just pop my flash drive into my iPad and I'm good to go! It took me a while to photograph everything, but I really love it! I have a category for SU clear stamp sets; polymer stamps; stamps with punches to match; stamps with die cuts; stamp kits; all of my dies; all my stencils, etc. I also have folders for birthday, etc.
It works wonderfully!

I'm using a 4X6in photo album to store small dies not associated with a specific set.

That's a good idea! Never thought of using a little photo album. It would't take up so much space.

I'm subbing. I've learned so much. Now that I have a Misti, I covered the magnets with washi tape. A tip I picked up from one of Maureen Wong's You Tube videos.
The other tip I can share, in case someone doesn't know, is when using a glue dot, put the item you want to adhere onto the glue dot on the roll and press down. Removing the glue dot from the roll with tweezers or another tool doesn't work as well.

In response to: 2. For colored embossing, stamp a stamp with versamark ink, then stamp into a dye ink pad. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Won't be as vibrant as craft ink, but works. -- With the Misti, why not stamp first in the colored dye ink, clean the stamp, then apply Versamark to the stamp and press again then heat.

Thank you so much for this website. My friend and I do an 800 card project every year for a child evanglist. He travels from the Mexican border down to the tip of South America every year giving greeting cards to children who've never ever had anything like it! This will be such a help with the cost of this project. By the way we hand make all 800 cards. Again thank you SO much!

For a unique distressed look it was perfect. I keep my toothpicks in a short spice jar handy on my desk. It's amazing how handy toothpicks can be!
I open the mail at work & at home, and sometimes there are folded advertisements that are closed with what appear to be re-usable glue dots.
I have often wondered if I could peel them off and re-use them, maybe to put on the end of a toothpick to pick up rhinestones, etc.
Has anyone tried this?

Default white fun foam

make your own 3D mounting squares with small pieces of craft foam (Fun Foam). It comes in different thicknesses and lots of colors, and can be cut to any shape. Stamp your design on cardstock and cut it out. Cut a piece of craft foam smaller than the stamped design, and use double-sided tape on the top and bottom of the foam to attach the cutout to your project. Or, a small amount of glue such as Scotch Quick-Dry Tacky Adhesive can be used instead of the tape.

I have looked a couple of times for packages of several sheets of white (only) craft or fun foam to do exactly this with. It seems only assorted colors are available... You have to purchase single sheets if you want white only, anyone know of a place to purchase a white only package?

or you can put the ink drop on a piece of white card stock, then punch it out with a round paper punch, glue it to the top of the bottle.

sub-divide them by topic...Cards, Envelopes, Boxes, speciality items, etc.
It sure is easier to find them and share with rubber stamping buddies.

2. Have a binder full of pickets to hold all the new metal embellishments.
They are easy to see and keep in "stock".

3. I have 2 binders of Card Samples I really like. Of course, that was before
finding this site. Now have the new ones on my computer, my doc.
and sub-divided by stampin up, etc.

4. Four binders full of clip art, post cards, etc. I have collected for years.
Most are old and can be used on cards.

5. Two binders are for How To Tips. They are alphabetized by subject.
Again, now I have to put them in my documents on the computer and
sub-divide by subject. Think I am a little bit compulsive.....just don't like
spending time trying to find something.
The other thing I have really liked are the 3 drawer sterlite containers from Walmart. I have ten of them, labeled on the outside to hold, marvey markers, pads by company, embossing, glitter, etc. I liked the idea of using them for paper.


Just remembered another couple items...the large light box. I use my small one all the time but the other is too big. One day maybe I will have lots of space to set-up this contraption. This is followed by the large fiskars paper cutter. Used it once.


Chatty Cathy 25
I used to have some binders (I know the above was posted years ago) but I did some clutter clean up recently and tossed a lot of the info, as I know I can find info on the web & SCS if I need it. I also have a bunch of old stamping /card magazines that I need to get rid of, havent looked at them in years.
I haven't used my light box in years, wonder if I ever will again. It's up in my closet-out of sight, out of mind. I do have a drawer of templates, some brass, that I have always loved, but have not used in years.... ugh.


I have a 3 drawer file cabinet with card stock in it, but that wasn't enough, so I have a dresser drawer with full reams of white and vellum, etc. colors I use most. I am a paper hoarder, I love to purchase design /pattern paper but rarely use it.

As I read through this I wondered if the thin foam used for packaging would work? Just thinking out loud, as I have not tried it... could you adhere a piece of this foam to cardstock, then die cut - especially sentiments and other intricate shapes.

etsdas, yes you can glue paper to fun foam and die cut it. I die cut glitter fun foam too. I get a big sheet of white fun foam to make pop dots, but I like color too sometimes when I think that it will match the color of the card stock I am popping up.

I like binders.
1. I put the smaller templates in a page protector and outline them so I know where they go when taken out (and to tell me one is missing).
2. I have made a list of dies that I have.
3 I put extra die cuts that I want to keep in pocketed page protectors in another binder.
4. In small photo books I put ephemera, extra OLD photos, and some swirl jewels.

Dollar stores generally have single white sheets of fun foam.

The shop where I have my card rack stamps its bags and the turquoise pigment ink is running out. I was going to grab one the other day when ink pads were on sale but they didn't have one. I bought an inexpensive white pigment pad, squirted turquoise reinker on it then used an old credit card to distribute the ink and voila an inexpensive substitute in just the right color.

Since I open the mail at work, I look for security envelopes with nice patterns inside. I have found some nice ones and just use them like pattern paper.

Oh My! this thread started the year I began to stamp-11 years ago.



Think this tops the "Oldest" thread to be resurrected!

Oh my goodness!! Yesterday I found reinkers that don't have any ink pads (I don't know why). I will have to try this - thanks!!

Just a plastic spoon like you get with take-out is good. Keep it inside the plastic container. Watch some Jennifer McGuire videos...looks So Easy!

Someone here on SCS had recommended using the silica packets you get in things like shoes and such, stored in your embossing powder, to keep it dry. My embossing powders are stored in plastic containers (sandwich size) along with the silica packet, which also doubles as a scoop. I liked the baby spoon idea, but discovered it gets too staticky for me, and prefer my silica packet scoop after all.
