Smile Stampin Up unmounted stamps

I was looking to buy a SU unmounted stamp online. Does the set actually include the wood mount and is it very difficult to mount? Sorry but I am absolute newbie in terms of stamping...... Thanks in advance.

Yes, the set does include the wood mounts. You cut out the image out of the rubber and peel off the paper backing and stick it onto the wood block. There are clear labels that go onto the wood block so you know what stamp is on that block. It's not hard to do, just takes some time, depending on how many stamps there are in the set, or how big or small the stamp is. You will need a good pair of cutting scissors to cut through the rubber. I only have used the ones that you can buy through SU, but I know other people have used other scissors with no problem. Hope this helps. Welcome to stamping and SCS. Happy Stamping !!!!

I remember mounting the first set I bought. I was so afraid I was going to do something wrong. Now if I do, I will just heat the stamp a little bit with my heat gun and pull it off of the wood. Then I either cut away a little more rubber or move it on the wood so I can position it better when I stamp.

Be warned this is a very addicting hobby. It starts with one set and then you have to have hundreds. Enjoy.

If you have a good pair of scissors, mounting SU stamps isn't that difficult. Tips that I tell my customers is to make straight cuts, keep your scissor straight up and down. I haven't had a single customer ruin a stamp yet. To purchase SU stamps, you'll need to go through a demo (there are plenty here on SCS), but a good way to find one near you is to go to www.stampinup.com and click on "find a demonstrator". Or search the forums and click on some blogs to see if you find a demo that way.
Welcome to stamping--it's a great hobby!
