there's some new goodies being released today over at Whiff of Joy!! i only recently discovered them myself and have been avidly watching all the sneak peeks on the design team's blogs. I am thinking several will be finding their way to my home.......someone recently asked me about boy images - there are some in this new release so HURRY ON OVER!!
these WOJ images come as unmounted rubber so i thought i would dedicate today's post to my newest "product I adore" - Tack N Peel!!
most stamps seem to come unmounted these days - i usually mount mine on ez mount. tried covering the back with aleen's tack it over and over but i was tacking things to the stamp that just did NOT go there and getitng the stamp stuck on things - i am obviously to messy for that route!
however i HATE the sticky time consuming mess that is ez mount. and i am ashamed to show you this but i have had THIS ->
pile of brand new rubbah (god i hope hubby isn't looking...) sitting on my table for weeks and so I pull out some Tack N Peel i ordered from Tsukineko back when i first started carrying their products. WELL this stuff is FABulous! can you imagine how long it would take to ez mount all THAT RUBBAH!!!!!
Instead here is what I have now - the yellow rectangle on the right shows what the tack n peel looks like out of the package (but bigger - it is 4" x 7"). i simply laid my acrylic block on top, drew a line to cut it to size, cut it and peeled off the yellow paper. this reveals a sticky side and i laid that down on my block - lemme tell ya - this stuff sticks! what i have now (you can see in this pic) is my block, tack n peel and a protective clear sheet.
when i want to use an acrylic stamp i simply stick it onto the protective clear sheet just like the plain block - works just the same. BUUUUUT
when i want to use some good ole rubbah i just peel the protective sheet off and stick the stamp right on. stamp and remove. Replace protective cover. so now i only have ONE sticky surface to worry about AND i can use my stamps as soon as i get them. i LOVE it!!!!! if the TnP starts to lose it's stickiness just wash it off and let it air dry!! now i ask you does it get any better!! i am ALL ABOUT instant gratification! i am stocking this on the website so if you need some for all those faboo WOJ stamps you get run over and plop some in your cart!!
