Getting Ready for a stamp show!

We have started to get ready for some stamp shows!  Where do you ask - we will be at Heirloom's Indianapolis Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival March 3rd and 4th.  This will be our first time there, and we are very excited.  I'm pretty sure we'll be bringing along the large handsome hares (they didn't make it to the last show).  Speaking of the Handsome Hares, here's a lovely piece from our Design Team member, Tracy Evans.
Visit Tracy's Blog for more fun projects with The Handsome Hares
Be on the look out for more updates on our whereabouts, as well as the contest results.

Happy Valentine's Day!

My son stamped up his Valentine's Day cards for his classmates, so if it looks like these cards were made by a 5 year old, it's because they are!
Joe's Valentines
I also got out one of our best selling stamps, the anatomical heart and embossed them up for a bouquet for my Valentine.

Have a happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine Cards...

Valentine's Day has the power to turn non-avid crafters into card makers.  Love sparks inspirations and leads to wonderful hand-stamped creations right from the heart.  Can you think of a better way to say "I love you."?   I hope you enjoy this creative sampling of Valentines using 100 Proof Press rubber stamps.
Gladys used the Gibson Girl Heart in this cheery card.
Jennifer pressed out several "fancy hearts" on this card
T.S.T. used a not so Valentine's image to make a punny Valentine

Gerrie offers hugs with the Big Cutie Baby

My son and I just got done making 25 Valentine's for his classmates.  He also choose to use the fancy heart.  I would love to see your Valentine's Day cards.  Please feel free to share them on Facebook.  And if you haven't started yet, don't worry, there's still time to get pressin.
