Using unmounted stamps without cushion
If you decide to use a temporary mounting system you will need an acrylic block, or something to mount your die on. Many stamps do not require cushion between the die and mount to stamp a good clean image. In fact, I find that I get just as good as an image if I place a pad of paper under the paper I am stamping on as a cushion.
My favorite way is to use it with double-sided tape.
All you need to do is apply a small piece of tape to your acrylic block. Then take your trimmed rubber die and place it onto the the block. Press lightly to make sure the stamp is secure. Now you are ready to start stamping
When you are done stamping with one image, simply remove the rubber die and leave the tape on the block. Then place your next stamp on the block. You can use the same tape until it looses its tackiness. Then simply replace the tape with another piece of tape.
