Default Stamp fell apart - I need a quick answer!!!

I'm a demo and I'm having a workshop tonight. I"m using my Smorgasborders (that I got last year at SAB time). I remember reading here that there was some faulty adhesive on that set. Well, I really don't want to bother my upline/demo with it at this point. I can fix it myself, but I'm wondering what to use. And can I fix it NOW and have it ready to use in 6 hours?? They all are coming off the wood blocks - the cushion and rubber are still stuck together. They need more trimming (I was a newbie then and I hardly trimmed them at all!), so I'll do this too, as long as I'm fixing them.

At my last workshop, a customer cleaned one of my little stamps a little too hard (a happy hello, I think, from AYC) and the rubber came off the cushion when she swiped it across the Stampin' Scrub. Can I use the same thing on this as I use to attach the rubber/cushion to the wood?

This is what I have on hand - Elmer's Craft Rubber Cement in a bottle, Elmer's Craft Bond "Ultra Stix All" in a tube (no odor and it says it bonds faster than E6000, whatever that means!). And I have Crystal Effects too.

Can you help?!

Thanks so much,
Susan

DS recommended plain old rubber cement from the drug store or office supply store when I called about one of my Little Layers stamps.

I've heard you can also use CE but haven't tried that myself.

Do you have any Crystal Effects? That works quite well.

If you have any scrap rubber laying around from cutting out other sets all you need to do is peel the rubber off the foam place the stamp you want to fix on the side you just pulled the rubber off and trim it to the size that you need. Then restick it to the block. My son bit off one of my and that is all that I did. It worked wonderfully then and still does today... I hope that helps...

When attaching the rubber to the foam, use rubber cement. It will be ready to use in a half hour.

When attaching the foam to the wood, use crazy glue, crystal effects (long dry time), or any other regular glue. I used crazy glue and those things haven't budged. I've used rubber cement to glue the rubber back to the foam and can't even remember what sets I've done it with, that's how well it works.

Good luck! And good luck on your workshop.

Crystal Effects has always worked for me and it should dry to tonight's workshop!

Good luck!
