I was expecting them to come how you usually get them from distributors, with the foam backing. However, it's just the thin rubber stamp...no backing to it. I started hyperventilating, and did not know what to do. Ivonne directed me to a posted she had just seen of a card using the new stamps. I filled myself with braveness, and sent an email to Mae not knowing what to expect. I was happy to hear from her so quickly and very informative. Not only that, she came back with two additional emails with links attached so I could see what she was talking about (E-Z Mount) and even possibly scrapbook stores in my area that I could call. She really went above and beyond what I was expecting and that gave me such a warm feeling in my heart. How wonderful is to realize that there are great people in this community that I belong to. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mae!
And now, for the tag I created with two of the stamps I ordered:

This card was created using image from: Magnolia Turning Leaves Collection 2012 – “Mini Tilda with Daisy and Mushrooms” and "Autumn Sunflowers"; DP: Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan"; Tag cut from a manila folder with Tim Holtz die cut. Ribbons and doily are from my stash. This image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.
