Getting closer to crafting!!

As I am typing this I am still under the influence or barbiturates so please forgive any mess ups *okie hopes she pays attention to the red underline of spell check at least*. I did get something done tonight craft related!!

I worked on unmounting some of my wood block stamps. A small feat but I am glad I did do something craft related. I was working rather slow and I think my daughter got 4 unmounted to my 1 *okie is not sure if it is due to the muscle relaxers or if her daughter is just a show off*.

Now my dilema is this....I am unmounting my stamps but I do NOT want the foam on my stamps. I prefer to put the foam under the paper I am stamping on and I know by getting rid of foam I can save even more space. Now now now before you die hard stamps say "OH DEAR LAWD OKIE YOU CAN'T DO THAT" well let me tell you.....yes I can...and yes I did *okie giggles to herself, probably not because she thought that was funny but that muscle relaxers make okie giggle*.

Uhh....what was I talking about *okie goes back to read what she typed*. OH YES! I am looking for something like the See-D's Cling. Since Inque Boutique went out of business I am not sure if this can be found *okie observes a moment of silence in the memory of Inque Boutique*.

So here is where you guys come in. If you guys can find any place that sells stuff like this please please plese let me know where I can purchase it!!

Oh and my newly unmounted stamps will be going in my Tim Holtz Unmounted Stamp Binders. I still TOTALLY love this method for stamp storage!!


  1. How about ez mount? I dont know where to get it but positive if you ask on the message board someone is bound to know... Miss u around buggin girly

  2. I don't know what kind of backing is on the stamps you are talking about but when I went to the Michelle Zindorf class, she used Aleene's tack it over and over on the back of our stamps. My first experience with that. I was always afraid to use it for some reason....I guess it was the fear of the unknown. Well, after that, I use it for all of my unmounted stamps and I use with the foam pad on my table. I love it!!!!

  3. Glad to see you back to giggling - no matter what the reason. I bought Tsukineko Tack 'n Peel on ebay. Clear cling sheets that go on your acrylic blocks not your stamps. They are reusable, washable, and pretty darn great. Each sheet is 4" x 6". Sorry but I can't remember the vendor name or cost but if you plug in Tack 'n Peel you'll find it. Hope that helps. I really, really like not having to put anything on the back of the stamps. This is sooooooo much faster.

  4. Okie,
    Kudos on taking the plunge to quit smoking! Hope your headaches go away soon! I'm having them daily from the pollens, etc., but sounds like yours are worse.

    Have you seen my Ladybugs post? I thought some ladybugs might get you in the mood for crafting.

    Feel better soon!


  5. Hi Okie, I am with you on the no foam on the stamps. I used the Tack-It Over&Over and stamp over an old mouse pad now. Great results. Using the TIO&O was messy to use, keep lots of wipes handy or your fingers will stick together and to everything else! (Dont pick up a tissue! lol)

  6. I know a store that has this in stock. LMK if you still need it.

  7. Just want to let you know that I have been following you blog about the "stop smoking" over the last few weeks. Congrats! I am so proud of you - I know how difficult it is to overcome not smoking any more - it is one of the most difficult things to over come. I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you and that we are all behind you and support you through this. I kow that I look forward o seeing your awesome creations on you blog once again!

  8. Hey Okie -- couldn't you use the same stuff we use to restick our matts? Like the Zig Writer or the Spray Tack. Just wondering. You have more guts than I do. -- KathyLuvsRaggy
