You know, I don't really measure it - just plop some glue in the container and add some water. I know that's no help at all LOL!
I don't think it's 50/50. I'm guessing more like 60/40 -more glue than water.

I want to start unmounting, and need to get that Aleene's Tack stuff. Do you think I could save $ and use a zig pen?

I haven't tried it but it ought to work. Aleene's Tack it Over and Over isn't very expensive, if you can find it locally. I had trouble finding it but when I did, it was only like $3.00

Hang in there. I had about 100 sets to unmount, I think I finished it all in about a month. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Once it's complete, you will LOVE it! and all the space you have for more stamps!!

I had over 300 sets to unmount! They are very close to done. Now I am putting all my acrylic stamps into DVD cases and I am almost done with that, too! There are a few SU! sets that I did not unmount. Sets with lots of tiny pieces, like Mini Mates. Also the background stamps are staying on the wood for stability.

I haven't done any of my Christmas sets since I don't use those much and they are just packed in a couple of boxes in the corner. They are not on my shelves taking up space, so they can just stay mounted.

Even not counting the ones I didn't unmount, I had over 300!!

Keep at it girls, it really is rewarding to see it all done!

Default Converting Wood Mounted Stamps to Cling

I just found this forum and had to comment... I too am almost finished converting 100+ sets to cling. I purchased EZMount. I love this stuff, but found out a little too late that EZMount comes with a white cling back and a black cling black. I thought it only came in black which then poses a problem of putting the image on the back. I have 10 more sets to convert (woo hoo!). Lastly, if one is on a budget, go to amazon.com and search for dvd cases. I found 50 cases for less than $20. I put my large stamp sets and BK stamps in the dvd cases. My small sets are in cd cases. I found 50 cd cases for $20 at Frys. I wanted to see those before I bought them because I didn't want the slim cases, I wanted the thicker ones. It is a lot of work, but I am so glad I did this. I have so much more space now. I also have the TIOAO, but I am very lazy and didn't want to have to re-tack when the tack became old and no longer sticky. The other thing I found out with the EZMount... it is so sticky and really "goups" up your craft scissors (including the non-stick ones), I place my stamp onto the EZMount, then brush baby powder all over the sticky part prior to cutting. I was able to clean my non-stick scissors with a baby wipe since the powder took away most of the sticky from the unused portion of EZMount. Not sure if any of this info will help, but thought I would pass on my experience.

Thanks for that hint about the scissors. I have the Tim Holtz non stick scissors. I got the scissors loaded with EZ Mount and it took a few times to get all that goop off of them.

When cutting the EZ mount, I used a hot knife that I bought at Joann's. Worked like a dream!

Vicki here's what I did.

For me, the unmounting was the easy part. I just sat watched a movie and pulled them all off. Carefully, of course. Then I put them all in a clear tote and sat is on my desk. When I had a few minutes here and there I just pecked away getting them organized into categories (each category had a big baggie as temporary home) and cleaned them up. The cleaning involved removing all backing still adhering to them so I had just the rubber left and then I scrubbed them with stamp cleaner front and back. Once this was all done I started thinking about storage. I got a bunch of storage panels from EZ Mount and a clear box with cover and got busy.

Every stamp I own (rubber and acrylic) is now contained in the box on sheets. They are all organized by category and subcategory, and each sheet is in its own sheet protector (extra capacity protectors purchased as Office Max). I bought double sided sticky mounting sheets for clear acrylic blocks (at Archivers or online) and applied it to all of my blocks. In order to make the bare rubber stamps stick to the storage panels, I just put some temporary adhesive on the back of each of them. They stick just as well as the clear ones. Only one side of the panels has stamps allowing for expansion, as well as a bunch of empty panels in the back of the box. My stamp box is smaller than a regular file drawer and still has lots of room for more.

Honestly, it was an investment of time and effort, but I am SO GLAD I did it!! Now I have lots of shelf and drawer space for other supplies, and can find any stamp in a second or two.

I will take pictures and post in my gallery as soon as I can.

When I tried this method, I found the glue stayed too sticky and was kind of messy even when "dry." It could be my climate is just a little humid for it.
Anyway, see my full post for my total solution. I hope it helps.

Kari, I like the idea that you have all of your stamps (clear and rubber) contained together. And it is my plan to do that, too. It is too hard to have some stamps in sets, some in drawers, and the clear stamps somewhere else. Here is my question:

What exactly do you mean by box on sheets????????????? You mentioned you had a large clear box - but what are the sheets made of???????????? And I assume they are
8 1/2 by 11?????????????

Vicki (vdoyle suggested diluting the TIOAO & I tried it and it works just as well and isn't as sticky. I used about half & half, TIOAO and water, and applied it with a sponge brush. I just made sure the solution looked a little white when I applied it so I knew I had plenty of glue in it and let it dry thoroughly. Works just as well, the TIOAO goes twice as far and it isn't as sticky! Win/Win/Win!

Cathy: Here is a picture of the box so you can see the container and see what I mean by "box on sheets." To answer your other questions, the sheets I bought from EZMount and are designed for putting in a 3-ring binder for clear stamps. They are slightly smaller than 8.5x11, but fit very nicely in a standard sheet protector for 8.5x11 paper. They feel like heavy cardboard and have a slick surface so the stamps stick to them. I put them in the sheet protectors just in case one does let go, so it won't get lost.

I love the way you organized them. And right now the extra heavy protector pages are on sale at Staples - 100 sheets for $5.

It has now been six months since I unmounted all my wooden blocks and a LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

I also put all my acrylic stamps into DVD cases and I am finding that the cases are warping, but only the ones with the acrylic stamps in them. Some of the cases are actual DVD cases and some are the SU! cases. Has anyone else had this experience?

Clean blocks that had never had stickers or foam on them, I loaded up into flat rate priority boxes and offered them on the BST forum here for the price of the postage. All of my blocks that had stickers and foam were dumped into the trash.

I simply did the microwave method and peeled off the stamps with the backing added the label and some tacky glue over that. I've used both Aleene's Tack It Over and Over and Tombow Multipurpose with good results.

I'd also suggest to not try to do it too many too fast. It's much less overwhelming if you pace yourself. After all you had the space to store all those mounted sets, so it's not like you have some sort of frantic deadline and the sets are strewn all over the floor and piled up everywhere. Or are they? LOL!

I have close to 100 SU DVD stored sets and have not had any warp. They are stored standing up. Are they near a heat source or direct sunlight? That's the only thing I can think of that would warp the cases.

Those that have left the foam on your stamps - are you able to fit sets on both sides of the SU DVD case? I put 2 sets in - one on each side of the case - and when I went to close it, it was a little snug and I felt like it was going to ruin the stamps.

I'm still wrestling between keeping the foam and going bare rubber and tack n peel. Thanks!

Rubber with EZ Mount, I can only fit on one side of the DVD case. Clear stamps go on both sides. I store almost all of my stamps in Tim Holtz folders now, but the alphabets are staying in DVD cases. I have four small clear alpha sets in a single case, but I also have a couple of large rubber alphas that take two, three, or even four cases each.

I bought a bunch of CD cases for a craft project so I tried to use those for my SU sets that I am unmounting. I have found that I cannot fit an entire set in one CD case with stamps on both sides. The CD case will not close. So now I am looking for alternate storage for my SU stamps. Any ideas? The CD cases I bought were not slim ones. They said Jewel. It was 12.99 for 50. See below:

My understanding is that "jewel" refers to at least one or both of the pieces being clear and see through and has nothing to do with the sizing. I think you need to be looking for "King jewel CD" cases. Hope this helps.

It is only the cases that have the acrylic stamps that are warping, but not all of them. They are not close to any heat source or sunllight. The cases with SU or other brands of rubber stamps are fine. All the cases are standing up as they should be and some of the cases are the SU brand and some are regular DVD clear cases I bought at my local computer store (10 for $3.95). There must be some kind of chemical reaction between the acrylic stamps and the cases. Strange!

Those that have left the foam on your stamps - are you able to fit sets on both sides of the SU DVD case?
You can, but it's a very snug fit-the case will close but there's a tiny gap and I hadn't thought of what that could do to the stamps. I use one side, I get as many stamps on one side as I can, and will trim some of them down a bit to fit. I've also trimmed down the rubber sheet the clear mounts come in and can sometimes get two of those on one side of the case.

I have begun unmounting my su stamps as well. I am using SU mounting foam and SU cases for the ones I'm converting from wood.

I also had some clear acrylic stamps and I put them into a su dvd case and one case warped, but the others didn't. The one that warped, I had put the clear stamps right on to the case and only the side with stamps warped, not the other side. The ones that didn't warp, I had left the acrylics on the clear sheet they came on and just put the whole sheet into the case. So I tried puting a clear window sheet into the dvd case with glue dots and putting the acrylics onto that and putting them onto the other unwarped side, but by the next day that side had warped as well. I don't know if it was the brand of stamp (I think it was a martha stewart, but I'm not sure, I know I bought it from walmart, and this was the only set I had of this brand.) or if it was just that I hadn't left them on the clear sheet I got them on.

I, too, would be interested to know if anyone else had warping with some of their cases, and if they used clear sheets, or not and if there is a difference in brands of stamps (and by this I mean the acrylic, I've not had any trouble with rubber and EZ mount.)

I just unmounted my SU wheels which have had no use. Even with the guide I couldn't roll a straight line. They came away cleanly, I used EZ mount and I bought the hot knife at Joann's too and they are so straight and even. It's like cutting through Jello. Never again will I cut rubber or foam with a scissor. I even bought more wheels so I could unmount them and have beautiful 7" long stamps (that are straight) for my larger cards. My favorite is the easter egg and bunny wheel from SU.

Are Stampin' Up DVD cases the only ones without that CD thingy inside them?


I've been putting mine in music CD cases because I can get that little thingy out and just put stamps in it.


SU cases are expensive.... I'm on a budget.

Yes, I had that experience, too. The "higher quality" acrylic stamps made the DVD cases warp, and the "lower quality" acrylic stamps wouldn't stay stuck! I've converted to Iris photo keepers and cut-down laminated folders for ALL of my stamps (acrylic and unmounted rubber), except alphabet sets and unmounted wheels, which are in the DVD cases, and unmounted background stamps (no glue on the back, just nekkid rubber), which are in a clamshell case (okay, two of them - only ten will fit in one).

What is a clamshell case?

How did you cut down laminated folders?

I find it so funny to see posts referring to a "hot knife". When I was in high school, that definition meant something totally different LOL!

On a serious note, I've been looking into these. I hate gumming up my scissors and dulling them by cutting the rubber and foam. My Michaels here in Canada carries the Walnut Hollow« Creative Versa-Tool and I might buy it today with a 50% off coupon. I've seen something similar on the Joann's website that is also used for ironing bias tape and the like that comes with a hot knife attachment. I might wait until my next trip to the USA and look into that one since I could use it with sewing projects as well. The one at Joann's is the Clover« Mini Iron II & Assortment Tips. Does anyone have any experience with both of these products that can tell me if one is any better than the other?

Thanks!
