And just in case you haven't seen my original set of minis released in January 2019...

The new releases - and my entire collection of stamps - can be found in my online shop.

NEW: Impression Obsession Stamps

My newest collection of stamps from Impression Obsession have just been released and are available to order now. These are a bit of a new direction for me and I hope you like where they are headed. While most of my stamps designs are perfect for backgrounds and layering, these were created with focal points in mind. They are all sold as individual stamps and are substantial in size - with measurements ranging from about 2.5 to 4 inches.

You can order these cling stamps now at my online shop or go directly to Impression Obsession to have a choice between cling and wood mounted. They will be appearing in many stores and online shops soon as well.

Make it Artsy

Thrilled to be a guest on the premiere episode of the sixth season of Make it Artsy. This television show airs on PBS in select markets in the United States but is also available for viewing episode-by-episode online.

Make it Artsy is hosted by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and highlights a variety of guest artists and crafters who demonstrate a wide range of creative techniques and projects - from mixed media to metalsmithing, using tools from saws to sewing machines and materials from paper to wood.

I had previously been a guest in the first season and was happy to have been invited back to showcase more creative fun. Season six is built around the concept of time. My segment focuses on saving time by using my Vintage Besswax Baked Texture embossing powder from Emerald Creek to create a fast and easy faux encuastic effect. I shared other tips and tricks for heat embossing as well.

You can watch my segment on my YouTube channel or head to the Make it Artsy website where the entire episoide is available until July 5. And stay tuned. I just might be back again in episodes eight and eleven.
