Woooooo Hoooooo, another FUN Woodblock Wednesday! First up is Ann and her gorgeous project:

Happy Woodblock Wednesday! Some people like to do their whole Impress DIY calendar before the year starts, I like to do a month at a time.  Here’s my January page.

I used our large square block to create a random background pattern and then stamped one of my favorite stamps, the pen and ink peony with versafine onyx black ink over it.

The square block inspired me to cut the stamped peony image into squares and lay out the image like tiles.

A big shout out to Ann for joining me in the fun today! This is when I tell you that I consider myself so fortunate to have been able to visit all of her brick & mortars back in the day. It was always such an amazing outing for me and my friends to meet up in the shops. We are so lucky that she still maintains her online presence:

Here’s how I was inspired:

These are the stamps that I’m featuring today:

I was inspired by the Sunday Stamps sketch:

I promised myself that I was going to build up my birthday card stash this month! You all know how much I love a caffeinated design. One of my favorite Impress stamps is the Thin Stripe Border. I love how it makes such a fun plaid pattern. The Birthday Mail sentiment has been heat embossed in white on black cardstock. That coffee cup, so perfect, right? They also have a smaller version HERE. I decided to use the Impress Rain stamp on the sleeve, perfect for Washingtonians.

I can’t wait to see how you’re inspired! Link up your:

  • newly created project
  • Use a woodblock stamp as the focal point

  5. Love the coffee themed cards! This is such a fun challenge! I really enjoyed it. Thank you so much Amy for creating it. Took me a little bit to figure out how to link my cards up. I’m not very savoy with these things. But I’m excited 😆 I will also be donating these Valentine Cards to @cardsforhospitalizedkids
