I'm in need of some stamp cling. Cushioned or uncushioned, beggars can't be choosers. Laugh The last time I got unmounted (rubber only) stamps, I used cling wrap (for food) on the back. Works pretty decent but real cling might be better.

The pieces don't have to be very big. Just scraps. The largest of them is maybe 1 1/2 inches square? Others are 1 1/2 x 1 and smaller and one is 1 3/4 x 1/2. So you can see, pretty small in size. Smile

Not sure if I will have what you might be looking for in trade, but I can try. If you click on my blog, you will see some flowers and journaling spots I've made. Perhaps I could make a few for trade if you want.

Kaleidoscope-

I have unmounted stamps as well and I learned from a company that sells the unmounted stamps that you can use a glue stick on the back of the stamp to cling it to the acrylic block. Then to clean you just use a little baby wipe and it works fine for me. I hope that you find someone to trade with if you don't use the glue stick.

Thank you. I know some people also use double sided tape or repositionable adhesive.
I prefer wood mounted stamps actually, but it's least expensive to buy the rubber only. (They're from Art Impressions.)

I buy mine here: Stampin Place

I am out of cling right now - sorry I cannot help. However, if you are desperate and have any old window clings laying around - can always cute on of those up

That is an interesting idea! Have you ever tried it? Is that similar to the kind of cling you buy without the cushion? I've seen in the store where you can buy those sheets that come in a cd case - it's just the cling stuff without cushion, but I don't know what that stuff is like.
The thing is I need a rather small bit so that's why I wasn't looking into buying it. I think I might have some window cling around somewhere. I'm pretty sure I saved it. It says I'm a big kid now from pull-ups and there was a lot of clear space on the sheet.

for small stamps - it has worked for me - I used some of the parts from around the window clings from something (a while ago). I also have found window cling at the dollar store with printing supplies. Not very often, but sometimes.

Also - if you have a good adhesive to your foam portion, you can even get by with the clear plastic table cloth stuff located in the fabric departments. It doesn't work as good as window cling, but gets you by in a tough spot for not much cash. (used more for Girl Scouts than any other place) I used the lightweight stuff (like $ .97 per yard).

I only buy the sheets from above when they have their yearly sale - it fits my drawers better and I like the backing it comes on for other purposes.

They're rubber only stamps. Cheapest way to buy them. :lol: Like I said, I've used food cling wrap before (xyron the back of the stamp and apply cling wrap). Works pretty decent but thought maybe the 'real' stuff would be better.

I save the backing from my sticky laminate sheets to do inking or sanding on. (Like if I am sanding letter stickers.)

How big of a piece do you need and for how many stamps? If you take pics I could have a better visual.

It doesn't have to be a whole piece. Just bits and pieces left over. If you put a ruler up to your screen, this pic may be close to actual size. (It is on mine. Laugh ). As you can see, they are pretty small. They're little bits of grass/foliage for doing watercolor scenes. The snowflake was a freebie with the order.

You can PM me your addy and I could mail the next time I'm off, if not Tuesday then Wednesday. Please don't feel obligated to send me anything. Just enjoy your stamps!
