BTW - source I found for what look like good wood stamp mounts. I would think a 1 3/4 by 1 or 1 1/4 block would be closest to blender tool. They seem cheap, although unless you buy a bunch the shipping will kick up the cost per.

In any case, just add velcro and you'd be good to go.

Just thought I'd post it for those who are wanting to make a number of blenders, want a stamp mount shape and don't have wood mounts to use.

I have come to the conclusion that buying craft supplies and actually using them are two separate hobbies.

Theresa I like your approach with the cut up sponges. You will have to let us know what you think of the blending tool. I'm going to get a sponge and cut it up and play with it since all I've ever used is the blending tool. (Some people wash the pads from those as well, so they only need a few of them. I don't. I just assign a color to each one.)

And I went and looked at your blog post and was fascinated. I didn't know you could do a self-guided video series with TH. I took a look at the website and it looks like it might be worth the money at some point.
I've got my blending tool and I've had a chance to have a mess about with it. My initial results were pretty awful I have to say I considered that I was somewhat adept at using a sponge for blending, so I was no novice, but the blending tool had me feeling like a complete newbie. I was doing all the 'right' things but getting a 'wrong' result. I went to a craft show this weekend and saw lots of demos and was paying a lot of attention to how they used the tool. I'll experiment some more.

Tim Holtz was also demoing at this craft show, but he wasn't doing any blending when I got to see him so I didn't get the chance to 'study the master' .
