Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. Today I have a Quick tip for you. Do you sometimes have trouble getting your clear mount stamps to stick to the acrylic block? I found that sometimes the label on my stamp would lose it’s “sticking power” over time. (I hate it when a stamp falls off the block!) I was in a quandary! I quit putting the labels on my stamps; however, I like having the labels on my stamps. So, here is a simple and quick fix using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (I love this stuff!!) Simply apply a thin layer of liquid glue to the top of the label. (I used the Broad Tip on the bottom of the glue to spread my thin layer.) Let it dry and it will leave a sticky layer that will stick to your acrylic block! Quick & Easy! No more stamps falling off the block!
FYI…Today is the last day for the September Special Offers from Stampin’ Up! That means this is your LAST CHANCE to grab the Layering Ovals Framelits at 25% off. There should be no qualms about it…you’re going to want these!
I’ve had a few questions about how these are different from the older set of Oval dies from Stampin’ Up! Take a close look at the photo above and you’ll see – this set has scallop ovals in all sizes!!! The older set only had one large scallop oval and the rest were plain so your layering options were limited. There are a lot more sizes too..a quantity of 15 Dies!
This set of framelits is a game changer. It makes it so easy to make quick & fabulous cards! Here is a card I shared recently using the layering oval framelits. You can click on the card for all the details.
Here is my Back to School Special for today…Any purchase of $25 or more from my online store qualifies you to receive a card kit that is quick & easy to put together. It’s my thank you for shopping with me. Remember to enter the Hostess code 7CNZAUYM when you check out. Click HERE to shop my online store.

Have a Quintessential day!

Yes, I have tried this!!!
Yea! More research complete!! 🙂
REALLY???? This works? – I am super excited to try! I have stopped putting my clear images on the stamps as I find that that is the culprit of not being sticky! I will try and report back!!!! “Q” is for Queen…you are the ABC Queen….is is sooooooo fun!
I have tried and tested…it truly works! I was using the temporary adhesive before I tried this. This is so much easier and we already have “green glue”. 🙂
I’m going t try this as well! I stopped putting the clear images on my blocks after ruining a few projects when the inky stamp fell off the block 🙁 But I have to tell you a funny (maybe only from one kindergarten teacher to another) after reading your “no more stamps falling off the blocks,” I started singing “No more monkeys… jumping on the bed!” Sheesh. 🙂
Oh Karen, I love that you got it!! I am so laughing my head off…that is what I was singing as I wrote it. Sometimes I think I take this ABC thing too far. My brain is just wired to integrate everything with the alphabet! LOL I thought about doing a take off of New Kids on the Block but the teacher in me couldn’t resist singing about those monkeys. ( I also just read 10 bears in the Bed this week to my little ones and they were falling out of the bed left and right!!! “Roll over, Roll over” hahaha)
Love this tip with the glue and will definitely try it. It is no fun when an inky stamp falls off and ruins the card. Thanks! P.S. Now I have that song in my head! lol
