Creative License Unmounted Stamps


I'm in love with the Creative License unmounted rubber stamps!
The little license plate stamp is cleaver!
 
 
I want to share an easy way to mount and cut these alphabets.  I used to cut the letters out individually first and then apply Mount-It. But I learned a new trick last year that was so much easier for me.  I cut out the alphabet grouping and then the other elements individually.

 
I have an old pizza box that I coated the inside with Mount-It to make the surface tacky. I've been using this box for years without ever having to reapply adhesive. I place my rubber stamped images upside down in the box and apply Mount-It with a foam brush. Set aside and let dry over night.

 
Now to cut the alphabet letters out separately I coat my scissors with VersaMark Watermark ink. This keeps the scissors from picking up the adhesive and getting all gummy. As you can see...my watermark ink made it a little too close to my Color Bursts but it doesn't show up when stamping. :)
 
 
Now off to make some cards!  We've got a little license plate discussion going on over at Club Scrap. 
Feel free to add your license plate ideas in the comment section!
