  • newly created project
  • use a woodblock stamp as the focal point
  • Please use the hashtags: #Woodblockwednesday #woodblockstamps

Here’s how I was inspired today:

This set features:

  • Large Folk Snowflake | Impress
  • Winter Cozy Hand Lettering | Impress

I love how these 4.25×4.25 turned out.

I’m a total eye baller. Here’s the thing with the woodblock stamps. The ink loads up on the rubber and the stamping is perfect every time. I love how crisp and clean they stamp.

I’m a long time fan of pink and grapefruit:

  • Pink Lemonade | Concord & 9th
  • Sorbet | Concord & 9th

The sentiment has been stamped in Nutmeg. It’s a gorgeous dark brown.

#keepingthingsreal – This was my initial set of cards:

I love the rainbow theme but that sentiment, which is beautiful just seemed a bit too dainty for the design. As I’m looking at the photo, I think what I might do is trim them down to 3.5×5.5. That could drastically change the overall look.

I’m so super excited to introduce two guest designers for today! First up is the amazing Kailash:

Oh my WOW. All the gorgeous details on this beauty. Make sure you check out her instagram post for all the info!

Next up is fabulous Mardi:

Amazing, right?! Make sure you check out Mardi’s instagram post for all the details.

  1. Impress was the very first of the amazing stamp stores I discovered many years ago. I was lucky enough to visit their brick and mortar on our rare visits to Seattle. Thanks for a chance to win a gift certificate, and thanks for hosting these posts as it’s renewed my interest in the woodblock stamps I saved.

  2. Absolutely love your 2nd set of cards, Amy! For some reason, I haven’t made pink snowflakes even though pink is my favorite color! You’ve inspired me!

  3. Love that snowflake design and the beautiful colors you used! Great cards! And I’ll be checking out your guest designers’ pretty cards too!

  4. I love your snowflake card. The circle with the bow is a nice touch. I found out about Impress Cards and Crafts last year. You can find all kinds of Seattle stamps and dies from there.
    By the way. I love all my Woodblock stamps. Most of them are from Hero Arts. Many of mine came in sets and I kept all the cute little boxes they came in. Woodblock stamps make a beautiful display.

  5. What a gorgeous card Amy, and a lovely combination of colours.
    The initial ones are pretty also, and I would love to see how you ‘rescue’ them.
    Stunning work by you guest designers
