I {heart} Hearts Clear Mount Stamps

DSC00898 copyOK>  I'll be honest... I saw the I {heart} Hearts set on page 14 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog and thought, "I LOVE hearts... but I have soooooooo many heart stamps.. I don't need another one"... ok.. that lasted a week... THEN I BOUGHT IT ...  :)  

So... can you guess why I did this with some of the stamps from my CLEAR MOUNT I {heart} Hearts set  and my I block ?  (that's the letter i , not the number one).

When you mount several of the clear mount stamps onto one block, you can create a SUPER QUICK BACKGROUND !!

Here is a card we did in my Heart Treat Cups class yesterday using this technique:

This is a really neat idea...I have all the blocks, but never even thought of using them for this.....I also have to add that these are the BEST clear blocks I have ever seen or owned..well worth the purchase price of the entire bundle...I love them!!

I just LOVE this card! You did a wonderful job.

Wow, I just ran into your site and fell in love. I'm a brand new demo (like 2 weeks) Had my first workshop yesterday. You have beautiful work!




yes, isn't this great; I've done this & was really surprised with the variations that I created; thanks for sharing!

I love subscribing to your blog--here's another GREAT idea!!!


Oh My! No wonder you are so successful...I would have never thought of that! Thanks so much for sharing the idea.

Patty - that is a wonderful idea - we will try that Wednesday - we are going to make Valentine cards - faster than getting out the wheels - and the cards are cute!

I too did not think I needed those hearts, but now I'm not so sure!!
Loved it!

I love the idea of how you placed them on the block. This just opens up so many possibilities.

Thanks for sharing

I thought the same thing when I saw the stamp set. I don't need another heart at all. I have enough for every one of your readers. But then I saw what all the wonderful people on LNStampers created. You guessed it. It is on my next order. Thanks (I think) for the wonderful inspiration and helping me make the decision.

Are you unmounting and organizing your old wood-block sets? Do you have a system?

Also, I have new sets to be mounted on wood, but I'd like to make them work with the new clear blocks. Any ideas?

I sure would like to switch over to clear, but have seen too many ideas of how to make it work - Aleens Tack it Over & Over, Tack 'n Peel, etc.

Would love to hear your advice!


Great idea! A friend recently did that with a bunch of clear flourishes stamps to create the background she wanted.
