I think I've got one of those laying around somewhere - I'll have to give it a try! Thanks for the heads-up...

I have a question for everyone.

What if want to use the Misti with necked rubba how the heck would it work! Especially if you want to do repeated stamping.

It made for clear mounted stamps

You can use the MISTI with both clear mount stamps and photopolymer stamps. To use with "necked rubba" you need to use the same method as the photopolymer (with the foam sheet on the inside under your paper), but may need some shims of cardstock under the foam depending on the thickness of the rubber.

Not that I have experience with that...but Sue (above) has said that was what she did.

Yeah, I have two pieces of foam - the one that came with the MISTI and a piece of fun foam and I use one or both when I stamp - depending on the thickness of the rubber or photopolymer (they vary quite a bit). I have 2-way glue on the back of all of my "nekkid rubber", but once in a while I'll have a stamp that I haven't put the glue on yet and I just use double-sided tape on the back of it to hold it to the MISTI. I've been using (read: abusing) that poor thing for nearly a year and a half, and - although she's a bit rough around the edges now - she still performs perfectly every time, and is none the worse for wear from the tape.

I also use poster tape to hold a laminated card loaded with stamps so I can stamp the entire thing on an index card at once - saves TONS of time over stamping each image/sentiment individually. Best investment ever (along with my laminator, of course, lol)! I'm probably a bit extreme, because even brand-new, cling foam-mounted stamps get ripped down to bare rubber. I'm a space miser, and the foam takes up too much...

Yes - and photopolymer. Even if I buy wood-mounted or cling foam-mounted, I strip them down to bare rubber, trim them (if needed), scribble Zig glue on the back and let them dry for several hours (or overnight) before putting them on laminated cardstock to store them.

How do you catalogue the images so you know which one is which.?

I looked on YouTube but nothing caught my eye.

I have a binder with pics of complete sets (or, in many cases, the survivors of a set where I have given away some/most of the other stamps from the set), organized alphabetically by manufacturer. For the stamps themselves, I stamp a 4" x 6" index card to go in one side of the photo sleeve where the laminated card holding the stamps is in the other side. I know that makes little/no sense, so here's a visual:

Looks so good, Sue! Maybe "nekkid" is my next step. That's the next way to improve storage for me going forward...other than another purge, that is.

Sue: you have just made my life easier.

I also have the fuse tool and that's an idea I can do.

Sue, I am going to ask a couple of questions that I think I know the answer to but just gotta ask before I do my laminating..... You laminate a white piece of cardstock with NOTHING on it, right? 8 1/2 by 11. Then cut it in half?!?!?!?!?!?
The only stamping is on the index card.......
Thanks for the pictures... worth a thousand words.... but I can be so dense at times.....

I laminate a half-sheet of cardstock in each pouch so the other half is just clear, fused to itself. I cut the clear the same size as the laminated cardstock and use it as a cover sheet so the whole thing will slide in and out of the sleeves without sticking. And yes, the only stamping is on the index card...

I'm glad you said something, because I've noticed that it is kind of hit-and-miss. Like you, I was so hopeful, and the initial stamps that I used the Zig on didn't do that. They were brand-new, though, and didn't have any residue from being stuck to foam for years or whatever, and I'm wondering if that made a difference.

I think that I'll test a stamp or two that was previously stuck to foam by cleaning the back really well with Ultra Clean, then rinsing with water and letting it air-dry, then apply the glue. It will be kind of a nuisance to have to do that with every stamp going forward, but less of a nuisance than if I have to re-do everything all the time because the adhesive is a hot mess all over everything.

I'll let you know how the experiment turns out...

I have a Misti and I have a piece of Tack N Peal mounted on a sheet of cling vinyl that I can take on and off the Misti when I want to use bare rubber. It works great and i keep it in a file folder in my Misti case when not in use. I haven't committed to taking all the cling off my existing rubber stamps but might in the future. I was not a fan of using the Aleene's TIOO on the back of the stamps.

Well im sorry you have experienced the same thing hit or miss. But atleast it wasnt just me hahah! It seems me to be hit or miss on my stamps too but the ones I did yesterday were new.. so who knows! I think it might just be one of those things I or we have to deal with... ughhh I look forward to hearing on your experiment

I'm really bummed that Sailor quit making their big chisel-tip glue marker. I NEVER had this issue with it! I thought that the search was over for a replacement, so I'm double-bummed that it's not working out as I'd hoped. Further bulletins as events warrant...

I tried that - didn't work very well. I just looked at a video on Club Scrap from a link someone else posted about their glue, and the demonstrator said to put the glue on not gloppy, but not too thin or "it'll peel off like a bad sunburn". Maybe I'm being too stingy? I'll try applying a heavier coat of the Zig and see what happens, since I'm experimenting, anyway...

Updates: I tried Suzi's (bunnystamper) suggestion of putting the stamps in the freezer so the rubber comes off the foam more easily and with less residue, and it totally works! You only need them in there for a minute or two, too.

I was very liberal with the Zig glue and let it dry overnight - SCORE!!! It's nice and tacky and no residue at all. I'm SO glad I don't have to go looking for yet another adhesive!

I've been using "nakkid" rubber for many years now because I've been a Club Scrap member since 2000. Back then their scrapbook kits came with 2 wood mounted stamps, but somewhere along the way those were phased out and we were blessed with sheets of unmounted rubber instead. I say blessed because we got much more for our money out of unmounted rubber sheets of stamps. There were several images on each 5x7 sheet, and as time went on each kit grew to offer up to 4 sheets of various sizes per kit.

Because of Club Scrap I am very familiar with these types of stamps. For those wanting to learn how to cut out, glue and prepare these stamps as Sue mentioned there is a video at www.clubscrap.com that shows exactly how to do it. The store on the Club Scrap website is open to all (you don't have to be a member) and while I used Aleen's Tack it Over and Over for years to glue my stamps, lately I've noticed a huge problem with the quality of it-my glued stamps have been falling off of the gluing box.

The glue I now use is what Club Scrap sells called, "Mount It Adhesive". To get there go to the website, click under Store and then Papercrafting, then supplies and tools. Once you get there you can see the video Sue was talking about on how to Unmounted (naked rubber) stamps. After that you can click over to stamps and see what CS sells. I love their stamps.

To stamp I sometimes use a magazine under my paper for a cushion if needed, but that's it. It's great not worrying about adding the foam under every stamp because you save money and storage. Just adding a magazine or the foam while stamping is so much better I think.

Do y'all take your wood mount stamps (not SU)off the block?? I have about 100 or so and have been debating on weather or not to unmount them.

Input is appreciated.

TIA

Yes, Suzi, all my stamps are off the blocks. Best decision I ever made. Well, one of the best, anyway.

It's completely a personal choice. I didn't take mine off the blocks.

I don't have a lot of SU stamps-about 30 sets. I keep them in 2 baskets in a wood cabinet with doors that shut. I have a ton of other wood block stamps from my years in Club Scrap and others. I have those displayed on the wall in racks. They take up little space there and I can see them all at a glance. Those racks run floor to ceiling in abut 4 feet of space. Then I also have 2 additional shelves.

I have my unmounted rubber that I've prepared into stamps (see above post) and I put those into Uni-keep binders and store on my bookshelves. Those work best for me because some of the Club Scrap unmounted rubber stamps are larger than the popular method of using the 4x6 sheets in the refrigerator shelves. I like to keep those rubber sheet sets together all on one sheet so I use 81/2 by 11 sheets in the binders.

Is this the method that you use for both clear and cling? With the 2 pieces of laminate?

Yup - sure is! I break up most of my sets (except the ones that need to stay together to make sense) and store by category (flowers, people, etc.) so they are all mixed together, anyway - clear and rubber. I use AdTech tape runner on the back of the rubber rather than cling foam.

thanks!! Another question...Sorry! Can I laminate the index card that comes with most sets instead of having to stamp all the images?

I don't have a definitive answer, but I do have a suggestion: I use those index cards to put in my binder that shows complete sets. You could make a photocopy of the index and laminate that, but I've found that I purge and add to and rearrange my stamps often enough that I would have to keep laminating new cards to keep up with what was going to be on them. All of my laminated cards are blank and I just slide an un-laminated sheet with the pictures of them (stamped or photocopied or whatever you decide to do) in the sleeve with the stamps. That way if you rearrange, you don't have to trash the laminated card and start over - you just get a new index sheet to put in with it... Make sense?

That way if you rearrange, you don't have to trash the laminated card and start over - you just get a new index sheet to put in with it... Make sense?
Yes, makes sense. Thanks for the help. I think that I'm going to try laminating the index sheet enclosed with the blank piece of paper. I keep all of my sets together (yea, crazy, I know...LOL) so there will be no need to rearrange them once I get everything in the envelope.

Subbing because my feeble memory can't store all this amazing info!

I swear to God - I am doing this soon. I've been threatening to redo my stamp storage for about two years. I just recently went on a spending splurge and now I really need a better system.
