After my recent video about how to use Silhouette Mint stamps with a stamp platform, a couple of you asked me how I store the stamps since they’re not mounted in the same way as you would mount them if you were using them with the Silhouette Mint stamp mounts. This is a great question, and it’s one that I actually hadn’t thought about when I first posted the video. But the great news is that there’s a quick and easy way to store the unmounted or EZ Foam mounted stamps without having to buy something special to store them in.
If you’re using something like the EZ Mount Static Cling Mounting Foam to mount the stamps on the stamp platform, you won’t be able to close the lid on the Silhouette Mint stamp mount if you pop the mounted stamp directly into it because the mounted stamp + thin piece of adhesive foam that comes on the Silhouette Mint stamp mounts will be too thick for you to be able to snap the lid on. So, in order to store the stamps, you’ll just need to remove the thin piece of adhesive foam that is on the Silhouette Mint stamp mounts. Once you get going, you can get it off pretty quickly. It didn’t come off neatly in one piece, but it wasn’t too difficult to get off.
You can see in the video below that I didn’t do a very meticulous job of getting that foam off, but you don’t need to get every little bit off in order for this to work. Just make sure that you remove the thick pieces of the foam – if there’s a little bit of adhesive with a very thin coating of the foam still on there, it’s not a big deal. After that, you can pop the stamp into the mount and press the lid on. It won’t click on quite as tightly as it normally would, but the lid will still be on their tightly enough that you won’t have to worry about it coming off when you store the mount or move it around. In addition, because the EZ Mount Foam is thicker than the foam that comes on the Mint stamp mounts, the stamp will be pressed right up against the lid and will leave an inked impression. But that’s doesn’t seem to affect anything, so no worries.
