I am in the process of tossing stuff I don't use anymore. Any suggestions on what I should do with my old rubber stamps mounted on the wooden blocks? Not interested in selling them on Ebay or Craigs List not do I like doing garage sales. Confused

You might check with a local adult daycare facility, nursing home, school, etc to see if they are interested. And if all else fails pull them off the wooden blocks and send them to me! HAHAHAHA

I recently just un mounted all my woodden blocked stamps. It clears up SO SO SO SO much space. I forget about my stamps often but when I take the time to look I find some fun stuff. Laugh

If you really want to get rid of them, I would donate to a non-profit. I like to give to Boys and Girls Club and have taken lots of my "extra" scrap stuff there.

I would like to know how to unmount them from the wooden blocks. I have a ton of them as well but I don't want to get rid of them, I would love to have the extra space. Confused

Here is a link to where I show how I did some of mine. I am now using a different method. Greenbean has the link on a youtube video on it is done with the thin foam I am using now.

About two years ago I got rid of a huge box of wood mounted stamps because I didn't have space!

Then I found out how to unmount them and put them in CD cases!! I love the space I save now but wish I would have found out about it earlier!

I unmounted my collection of rubber stamps were wood mounted mostly from Stampin' Up! and other big name companies, some were foam mounted. I've been collecting rubber stamps since 1995. I unmounted as many stamps as I could about 5 years ago. I haven't bought stamps from anyone in 5 years, but I have a little over 7,000 images so it's not like I need to buy stamps.

Anyway, I just peeled the die right off the foam or wood. No microwave or anything, 90% just peeled off, it's a wonder they didn't just fall off. A few from weird random companies had to go in the microwave to loosen the glue. One was so thin that I would have torn the rubber in the process so it stays on the wood block. I have placed all my unmounteds on plastic sheets (from sheet protectors) using Aileen's Tack it Over and Over. I use clear blocks and no cushion. I use cushion under the paper when I stamp. By cushion I mean a magazine or a few sheets of paper under the piece I'm stamping on.

I like the idea of the CD style, each set or several of a theme in a little CD case. However, that meant buying the CD cases which was money I could use for cartridges. So instead, I put 2 pieces of WM card stock inside a document protector sheet, also from WM. Used my big paper cutter to cut the card stock and document protector sheet to fit inside a sandwich bag. I stapled the corners because the plastic and paper were flapping. Then I stuck the stamps on the document protector sheet, and slipped it into the sandwich bag. These little bags of stamps are stored in plastic shoe boxes, no lids, and I made little index tabs to find the images. Like Birthday, Christmas, etc. I use 9 shoe boxes to hold all my images now instead of 7 multi drawer tall Iris carts like I used to do, this method saves so much room.

Hope this helps. There are photos on my blog, I can't figure out how to include pictures yet

I followed Okie's advice and unmounted all of mine and now store them in CD cases (see link from Okie above). It took a long time because I had so many, but oh my gosh do I have room in my scrap haven now!
