Default Background stamps storage

Can anyone tell me if the Stampin' Up wood mounted background stamps fit into the new Stampin' Up wood storage containers? I like to keep my background stamps in cases (currently the clam shells). The new wood containers look more stable for shelf storage and I am tired of the clam shell falling over when I take one or two stamps off the shelf. Thank you.

The new map background stamp comes in the wood case so I would say yes they do. BUT....personally I haven't gotten around to ordering them yet! I have been ordering so many other goodies!!!! The dimensions on the full case is: 7-1/" X 5-1/2"

I just put Sunflower wood bg stamp into one of the new cases, it fit fine.
There was very little wiggle room side to side, though, so that's about as big as will fit. Top to bottom there's about a spare inch.

I'm playing devil's advocate here: why do they need to be in a case at all? There are no other stamps in the "set", so there's no danger of losing part of it, they stand perfectly well all by themselves on the shelf, and you wouldn't have to spend $$ that you might want for other things...

Another thought: If you use them face-up on the table and lay your paper over it to stamp the image, there's no reason for them to even be on the block. I unmounted all of my background stamps down to bare rubber. Ten of them will fit in a clamshell case (or the new woodmount cases, I would suspect)

Sue, I just haven't gone that far yet! I have unmounted most of the wood sets onto ez mount but not the backgrounds. I've never used bare rubber. Guess I have more thinking to do. Thank you for you reply!

Heart No backing?

Hey, Gregzgurl, how do you use your unmounted rubber stamps? Did you unmount your other stamps also? Storage is definitely a problem.

How do you unmount them?

I just get a thumbnail under an edge of the rubber and peel it off. Sometimes some of the glue and/or foam will remain on the rubber, so I just roll it off with my thumb. If I'm buying new rubber, I purchase it without any foam or anything to begin with, if possible. I put 2-way glue on the back (I like Sailor - others use thinned-down Alene's Tack It Over and Over), let them dry thoroughly, and put them on laminated cardstock ala fionna51 (see posts #56, 57,and 59 on THIS THREAD ) in page protectors in 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" binders. I have a rather extensive stamp collection, and ALL of the stamps (including unmounted wheels and background stamps) fit in 36 binders. To get a better idea of how consolidated that is, I will only need 3 file boxes to move all of them across the country next year! I have all of the Close To My Heart acrylic blocks and a Fiskars stamp press that I use with them. The large stamps (background) have no glue of any kind on the back - I just lay them face-up on the table, ink them up, and lay the cardstock on top, then rub over it with my fingers, being careful not to shift the paper at all. Best thing EVER! Oh - I do use a pad (Fun Foam or similar) under my cardstock when I stamp, just in case...

Question

Just a really dumb ? Gregzgurl, when you lay your paper face down on the stamp, how are you sure where it will stamp? Thank you!

Not a dumb question at all, and a good reason for an update! Since I am usually using them for their intended purpose (backgrounds), I just use a piece of cardstock slightly large than needed, then trim to the correct size after the fact and carry on...

However - I now have a MISTI (see THIS THREAD) and I can put the stamp on the cover with poster tape and stamp exactly where I want, or I can put the cardstock on the cover with poster tape and still lay the stamp face-up in the MISTI. If I don't get full coverage, I can re-ink and close the cover again (and again and again, if needed) to get the coverage I need.

I have 4 background stamps-2 I unmounted and 2 I never bothered to mount. They all fit in an old style clam shell case and I use them face up. But I need to come up with a clever way to use the large wood blocks they came with!

Oh my! I never thought about laying the BG stamp face up in the MISTI and attaching the cardstock to the cover! THAT is an awesome piece of information!!

I put mine on recently glued items to make sure they dry flat I pile a bunch of other woodblock stamps on top if I need more weight.
