Have you had trouble using clear acrylic stamps blocks (stamps mounted on clear blocks) before? Would you like some tips on how to use them?
"The beginning is the most important part of the work"
Stampin' Up! has brought out clear mount stamps! You can now often choose between wood mounted, photopolymer and clear-mount sets when you purchase them.Clear mount stamps are made form the same rubber as wood block mounted stamps, and you need to use clear acrylic stamps blocks to use them.

You may not have used clear mount stamps before, or you may have trouble getting them to stick to the clear acrylic stamps blocks.
With this thought in mind I have listed my own tips and hunted down experiences others have had to find you ways to turn out beautiful, sharp images with this style of stamp.
First, you need to mount them on a clear acrylic block such as those you can buy from Stampin' Up! (Go to SusanSalutations if you live in Australia and want to order any. The blocks are moulded to fit your fingers so don't slip as easily as the chunky flat style).
Some people have trouble with this step so I am going to tell you some troubleshooting tips.
Here are the tips I have collected about mounting your clear mount stamps to acrylic blocks. You may find one or more of these tips helpful, and if I have missed any out, please do let me know what works for you:
Here is a video from Stampin' Up! showing how to use the acrylic blocks with clear-mount stamps:
Now you should be all set for using your clear acrylic stamps blocks.
Let me know how you go and if you have any more questions, I will see if I can answer them for you.
Happy Clear Block Stampin'!
