I’m so excited — and so honored — to be guest blogging for Impress and Savvy Stamps this whole week! Please come join me over on the Impress blog.
I’ll be using new winter release stamps from both Impress and Savvy Stamps, plus their new Fresh Ink colors. You guys, they have the best new colors! I’ve loved their Fresh Inks for years now and these new colors are no exception. They are so rich and vibrant and have great coverage, plus the colors are so sophisticated — I bet you don’t have anything like these already. Here are just a few of my faves from the release — the names alone say it all: succulent, aloe, blush (I have wanted an ink color like this for YEARS — years, I tell ya!), papya, Indian ocean and best of all, kale! (Yes, kale! Do they know me or what?)
I can’t even begin to tell you how much guest blogging for them means to me. You see, when I first started getting into stamping I really gravitated to their stamps. In fact, I still have most of those first stamps today. They never seem to go out of style, and I love how clever they are — you can bring them to life with little embellishments and such. I’m usually sitting at my desk giggling the whole time I’m stamping because I’m having so much fun — just ask Jason.
Fast forward to a few years ago when I got to meet Ann, the owner of Impress Stamps, and her daughter Cindi, the genius behind Savvy Stamps. They are both genuine, amazing women and I’m so glad to know them.
Okay, enough rambling — on to the cards!
I’ll be starting off the week with this set of little scenes in bottles — these stamps are such a great idea, am I right! — and I have a little technique how I got that bottle stopper stamp to look like cork to share as well.
Impress is having a giveaway of some new stamps and inks I’m using this week, yay!
