Learn How to Make Your Own Cling Mount Stamps + Bonus Project

 

PROJ-0866-600x600



My crafting education continues with a special tutorial on how to create cling mount stamps. Not only are cling mount stamps a more economic option, but they can also save you a lot of space and they’re an eco-friendly choice in regards to total materials used.  Cling mount stamps do not require individual wooden mounts — instead, they can be peeled on and off of a single acrylic block. While no one can deny the appeal of classical wood mounted stamps, being able to afford and store a larger collection of images is pretty darn enticing.

The first instance where I really noticed a clear mount stamp was in this Cottage Garden Journals Project, which also featured Angela Cartwright’s stunning transparencies, and my favorite kraft-colored Moleskine journal. I saw the intricate writing design on the journals and began to investigate where I could find the stamp responsible for the pattern.  The delicate writing ended up being the Da Vinci Text unmounted stamp, and after a quick tutorial I learned how to make and use cling mount stamps for myself.

Products Needed for Creating Cling Mount Stamps:

EZ Mount Sheet 8-1/2 x 11”

Tonic Studios Tim Holtz Kushgrip Snip Scissors

The Notice Unmounted Stamp

Da Vinci Text Unmounted Stamp

Acrylic Blocks

Stamping Ink Pad

Also, don’t forget that you’ll need a canvas upon which to showcase all your lovely stamps. I recommend something from our Cards and Journals Collection, which offers a wide variety of blank canvases that range from stark white to warm kraft-colored surfaces. If you’re looking for a more colorful and dynamic background, you can try out our Artist Paper Packages, which features an assortment of papers with high-quality prints created by talented artists.

How to Mount Your Own Stamps:

First, lay out an EZ Mount sheet on a flat surface. This special foam paper comes with a sticky side that will adhere to your rubber stamp and static cling side that will hold onto your acrylic block. Clean off the smooth side of your rubber stamp in order to prepare it for mounting (we’re using the Da Vinci Text unmounted stamp). Once your stamp is ready, peel back the printed liner of the EZMount Foam sheet and press your rubber stamp onto the exposed adhesive.

After securing a strong bond between your rubber stamp and the sticky side of the EZMount foam sheet, cut your stamp out as close to the image as possible, using Tim Holtz’s Kushgrip Snip Scissors.

When you’re done cutting, peel the liner off the static cling side of the EZMount Foam. Press your completed stamp onto an acrylic block and you’re ready to stamp!

*Here’s a tip — if the static cling side of your EZMount Foam becomes dusty or dirty, simply wipe it off with a soft, damp cloth, and presto! Your cling mount stamp is ready to be used again.
