Thank you Lisa Lee for asking us to participate in your "Twelve Days of Trees" challenge! I had fun creating these two cards using the 3" squares in both black and white. Check out her blog to get all of the details!
We added this stamp to go with our Merry die. Here's another card option using our Ampersand die and only inking up the "bright" part of the stamp. The "and bright" stamp is brand new! It was great that we could get it so quickly. Have a great day! Cindi
I had the privilage to demo with Lisa Lee a few weeks ago and she showed me this adorable card that she did using our peeking polar bear!
She will be teaching this amazing class - StenDoodle TM with Art Squares at Impress this month, November 18th. Call the University Village store for details. 206.526.5818 This is your opportunity to meet Lisa and use her Art Squares for some impressive projects!

It doesn't get any easier than this! It doesn't get any easier than this! Polka dots created using the end of pencil eraser. The gold sequins add a little to the simple card along with the white and gold twine.
I picked up these beautiful gold paints over the weekend! I had seen them online and couldn't wait to try them out! They are beautiful and you can watercolor with them or use your calligraphy pen. Our new deer head die was die cut using a foam glitter type paper but the picture doesn't show how intense it sparkles but it's a great product. Much easier than the thick, difficult to use glitter paper that I normally would use. It comes in gold and silver as well. I am also using a Martha gold paint to stamp the chevron pattern on the side. I love the consistency of the paint and the look it gives when stamping with it. It's the perfect gold color!
It was a whirlwind of a weekend! Impress Cards + Crafts had their annual holiday event and we had a great time making a ton of new samples for it! It's always fun to be with the Impress staff and customers and meeting new people that come near and far for the event.
Here is one of our new deer head dies and I applied spray adhesive to the die and then sprinkled gold glitter before mounting onto the card. (10170 deer head)
Here's a few holiday cards using our new stamps and dies! I love our watercolor wreath stamp - I actually used watercolor to color the back of the stamp! It works great! Also love our new MERRY die! I can see so many possibilities with this die! have a great day! Cindi
