I'm looking for ideas on how to store my rubber stamps that are on wood blocks. I already have a nice system for my clear stamps, so I don't need ideas for those.

I'd love to hear how you store yours, and photos are even better!!!

I use flat plastic bins, I think they're by art bin, that are about an inch deep with a lid. They stack really well and are the perfect depth for wood mounted stamps. I lable the end of each bin then each stamp is stamped into my supply binder and noted with the bin name.

Here is a pic of my stamp storage shelf, which has been modified slightly since I took it but still gives you enough of an idea:
Junk corner By Siameseplease
Green baskets have Stampin' Up sets in them, which are still in their clamshell cases and are stamped off in binders for reference to tell me which basket they are in.

Bottom shelf has Iris containers with Christmas stamps in them. Then I have clamshell containers that I got at Joann's (not sure they still sell them) to hold my House Mouse and other wood mounted stamps. Again, these are now labeled and the stamp images are in a binder for reference.

Tomorrow, I am picking up a stamp cabinet sold at a store in PA. He makes them out of poplar. All of my sentiment stamps will go in it (I have lots and lots of those).

I have my large Hero Arts background stamps in a DVD storage box. Random smaller ones I keep in Stampendous Stuftainers - the Thicker size is perfect.

I have behind-the-door shelving that I LOVE. There's a picture here:

Love the shelf, Cindy!

I keep mine in a medium sized, old, leather suitcase that sits on my shelves....
It fits quite a lot of stamps and looks nice!
I just lift the lid and pick out what I want...

I don't have any photos of my room, but I keep my wood mounted stamps in 2 hanging shoe organizers (the kind with all the pockets).

Some of my less used wood mounts and all my foams are in a large oval planter.

I have a shelving system similar to the one mentioned above on the wall by my desk. I keep all of my clear stamps in clear CD cases on a CD rack from IKEA. I use a label maker to label the spines. For the clear stamps that are too big for a CD case I keep them on a plastic sheet in a page protector with a binder.
