If you read my review on the new acrylic stamps then you know you'll need a clear acrylic stamp block to hold your stamp. You will be on your way to experiencing a revolutionary new type of rubber stamping.
Since acrylic stamps come in all different shapes and sizes like the rubber wooden stamp, you have to make sure you have an acrylic surface large enough to hold your clear stamp.
The beauty of clear acrylic stamping is that you can have hundreds of stamps and only need a basic set of acrylic blocks to use them with. How economical is that?
This is my 4 piece set of Fiskars Acrylic Stamp Blocks which includes the following block sizes:
1" x 1"
2" x 2"
3" x 3"
6-1/2" x 2"
I chose this set over others in the store because of the grid lines that have been placed on the block. This will help me to perfectly align my clear stamp wherever I want. Everything is see-through so stamping is so much easier and fun. You will not believe how your clear stamps cling to these blocks and absolutely do not move. When you are done, just peel off the acrylic stamp from your block and move onto your next project.
You can use several of the blocks together to create your own unique design, create borders or create a collage by overlapping some of the stamp images.
When you're done stamping for the day, just wipe off the acrylic block/blocks with a damp cloth if you've gotten any ink on them and store them away for your next project.
I plan on purchasing a few more blocks in larger sizes so that I will be prepared for anything I might want to create. You will never need to replace these acrylic blocks unless you loan them to someone and don't get them back!!
