    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: maisyrae asks: "I just bought 2 unmounted red rubber stamps. What do I use as backing for them to use on the clear blocks?"
    A: EZ Mount Static Cling Mounting Foam works really well for me - it holds well on a block or stamp positioner without being sticky. You can purchase it in 8-1/2" x 11" sheets, and there are 2 different thicknesses depending on your storage needs (1/16" and 1/8"). If you don't have any of the cling foam on hand, you can use a repositionable tape or tape runner to keep the stamps on your block temporarily. Through the years there have been other DIY mounting systems, including thin sheet vinyl and Velcro!
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Motocross Mom has a tip for the Quilled Pumpkin Card: "Quilling is something I have always been interested in and this pumpkin is a great pattern. Using a smaller dimension "roller" than the water pen would create smaller circles for different sized pumpkins. Thank you for sharing your idea!"
