Rubberstamping 101: Slide Mount Ideas

Here are some fun ideas to try using slide mounts….

1. Brayer rainbow ink on it.
2. Hang from a safety pin.
3. Staple ribbon on it
4. Rubberstamp words or images onto them
5. Use alcohol inks on them to change the color of it
6. Use embossing ink and powders to emboss on it
7. Run through a xyron to add adhesive and cover in micro beads, gold leafing, glitter, or sand
8. Cover the entire slide mount with pattern paper, cardstock, handmade paper, or fabric
9. Create a mini book using two slide mounts; traditional open book or an accordion type album
10. Use it to frame a portion of an image in a larger photo.
11. Add a magnet on the back and create a fridge magnet
12. Try using rub-ons/stickers either letters or images on them
13. Hang with fiber/ribbon from a brad like a photo on the wall
14. Punch a hole, and hang a charm, tags, or some beads from it.
15. Paint with acrylic paints; also try using crackle medium
16. Color with permanent markers.
17. Link 2 mounts together with wire or jump rings
18. Color with metallic rub-ons or markers
19. Cut slide mount front and back apart, to create two from one.
20. Hinge the front and back open on the mount to create a set of mounts
21. Use modge podge to decoupage cut out images onto the mount
22. Cover with magic mesh
23. Create a tiny shadow box
24. Create a shaker box
25. Punch holes and add eyelets or brads. Using eyelets you can tie multiple mounts together
26. Try using dimensional paint like “make it suede” or dimensional glaze or liquid applique
27. Wrap wire, ribbons, cording, tulle, DMC floss, waxed threads, fibers, or yarns around it.
28. Use in a collage on an altered paint can, clip board, altoid tin, paper bag book, coin folder, etc.
29. Apply Ultra Thick Embossing (UTEE) powder, stamp onto it, then crack for a fun effect.
30. Ink edges of slide mounting preferably using Stazon or Brilliance type permanent inkpads
31. Frame anything, like diecuts, stickers, tiny pictures, quilled designs, punch art, dried flowers, stamped images, charm, words, embellishment, etc
32. Cover the mount with wood grain paper and mount onto a Popsicle stick to create a “sign”; then take a paper doll/paper piecing person to hold it
33. Try adding to a greeting card as an embellishment; try using it on a gate fold card, or perhaps hinged with an opening to the inside of the card.
