Double mounting your stamps with Dawn www.DawnsStampingThoughts.typepad.com.
Hi stampers! Today, I thought I would show you how I double mount my stamps. There are stamp sets that require you to double mount on one block and "fundamental phrases" is another one of those. So, I will show you how I did those two but I went ahead and did. I am just going to give you a little crash course here on how I did it. You are going to put your sticker on the end of your block. This is how I do mine. And then you are going to trim this as close as you can to that alphabet and then when you put your sticker on your block of wood. Now, this has got G and H. Now, the bottom of each alphabet is the stamping up copyright logo thing there underneath each alphabet. So, this is considered like the bottom of your alphabets.
So, when I am mounting my stamp, I am going to take the wood block and I am going to take this letter G and I am going to put it facing me when I am mounting my stamp. So then, I put this. I cut the rubber and then I peel off the backing and then what I am going to do is I am just going to flip the black over and I am going to put the G on the back. And I always like to put it on the left and actually or beyond the right hand side of your block but when you are stamping, it is going to be on the left hand side so you can kind of line it up just by looking at the left hand side of your stamp if you are right handed. And then I did the H the same way. I face the H the correct way, upward, set the block down and then I cut my H out, peel off the backing and then I flip the stamp, the black cover and then I apply the stamp. And that is how you do the double mounted.
Now, with the fundamental phrases and maintain concept, you are going to put the word on the side. Actually it is on the grove part of the wood block and I am using “Everything.” “Congrats” on this one. But I put the sticker here and then I want to face the word that I want to add to the wood block. So I want to add “Congrats.” So then I am going to face the word to me and then I am going to flip it over and I am also going to add that word to the right hand side of my block. So, I guess it is the same thing as the alphabet. So then I have that left edge again when I stamp, this will come up right. And then doing the other word “Everything,” I want to do the same thing. I am going to put “Everything” facing me and then flip the block the over and I am going to put the stamp. This is “Everything” over to the right hand side of my block.
So, let me show how that stamps out. I want to use “Everything,” so I am going to face this stamp towards me and then I am just going to stamp that out. So, that is “Everything.” And then lets do the “Congrats.” See, and then this is how the alphabets work too. So, you are just going to use whatever letter you want facing you. Someone to do the G lets do the H.
Okay, that is how you double mount, really great and it saves space. All right, thank you. We will see you. Bye!
