So is anyone else out there having trouble with SU Clear stamps not sticking
to the clear blocks? I hope I'm not the only one!
I was almost to the point of going back to wood mount, except that they
cost more and take up more room in storing them.
I complied a few solutions to this problem. Each one does work
so I guess it will be a matter of what works for you.
The step for all the solutions is to start with clean dry clear blocks.
I use baby wipes to clean mine then dry them on my jeans (LOL),
or just let them air dry. You can also use alcohol with cotton balls to clean them.
Instead of putting the entire sticker onto the stamp trim it close all the way
around to the image. This will leave a small part of the foam back stamp
that will be clear of the sticker and will enable the stamp to grip the block better.
Here is what the stamp looks like on the block. You will still have the image so you
can better place the image on the cardstock. You may not be able to see this very well on
this photo. Click on any of the photos to enlarge.
The next one you can try is the one I've been using.
Pick up some #4 vinyl at JoAnn's. Doesn't take much to cover the blocks.
I got 1/2 a yard but that was more than I needed. I think the vinyl only cost 2.29 a yard so
it is very inexpensive.
Cut the vinyl to fit the block. You can go a little under the block size
but don't over extend it. The vinyl is clear so you will still be able to see
the image through the opposite side of the clear block.
See how I'm holding the stamp well above the cardstock and it is
clinging for dear life onto the block. I tried shaking it and it still didn't fall off.
Yup even after stamping the stamp is still sticking to the block.
And the last one works too...just dare to go "bare" and
leave the sticker off altogether.
Only bad part about this one....its harder to see how to line up the image on the cardstock.
Okay well there are the three options I know about.
Hope that these have been helpful to you.
