Help with unmounted stamps & Leaf Card

I have been having a sort out of my unmounted stamps and can not decide on the best way to store them. I do not want to spend any money out on buying the EZ-mount. I just want to be able to store the rubber some how!
Any ideas fellow bloggers?

Today's card I have used chalk ink pads on the main card for stippling. Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves for stamping the leaves on the main card and also for the main image which is the resist technique ( i think this is a Hero Arts stamp). The verse stamp is from Stampendous an i have embossed with gold ep onto vellum and attached to my card using eyelets.

Have a great Monday!


  1. Love the card, can't help with the unmounted stamps mine are all over the place. Have a little holdall for woodware clear ones and the rest are in a photo box loose. So it will be interesting what others do.

  2. Just beautiful! Great choice of colors and techniques for those stamps, love the embossed sentiment!
    No help here for your unmounteds, I use the white binder inserts and it works very well for me. Well worth the expense imho.

  3. I am all mounted, so no help from me. I think storage is the biggest issue for all of us crafters.

    BTW- beautiful card, love your work.

  4. That is a beautiful card...the colors & technique are fab!
    Sorry I can't help with unmounted either :-(

  5. Love the colours on the card.

    My unmounteds; Some are just stuck onto acetate and stacked in my 'stamp cupboard' but that's not recommended apparantly, so will have to rethink myself! I know some people stamp their images onto cardstock then laminate them and stick their stamps to that, which can then be filed etc. I don't have laminator but thinking of doing something similar but just use rolls of the clear sticky plastic you get in WH Smith etc, what kids get to back their books with IYKWIM

    All my small magnolia and Bella stamps live in their own plastic CD box which have hanging cd pockets in them (from Tescos)

    would love to see what other people do!

    Julie, I have a pen friend in the States and she told me a long time ago how she stores her unmounted stamps. will get her idea and pass on to you. This will help all the ladies. Luv di

  7. Great card! I got a great idea to store mine, which was in a cd wallet book, it's a giant cd album holder.


  8. Gorgeous card; wish I had more chalk inks myself!


  9. My idea for storing unmounted stamps if they will stick to the acetate without EZ-Mount then they will stick to the inside of a CD Case then you can stack them and they are not just roaming around in a box or drawer.
