Welcome to the Designer Crafts Connection ImpressArt Metal Stamps Blog Hop!!!

Today is Designer Crafts Connection blog hop featuring ImpressArt Metal Stamps!  Twenty-two designers have created original artwork with ImpressArt Metal Stamps. I was really excited to get my hands on these amazing tools as I have seen them demoed and tried them a few times at the CHA trade shows and love them!! The best part is, you don't have to use them on metal only–they will work on chipboard, leather, and most other surfaces you can think to “impress”! I made a simple Mother's Day card today using the ImpressArt Metal Stamping Blanks, butterfly in Copper along with the ImpressArt Metal Alphabet Stamps, Bridgette, lowercase and ImpressArt Design Stamps: Whimsy Flower:

Here you can see the details of the stamped butterfly:

I made a little video to share how I used the ImpressArt tools and supplies to create this butterfly on my card. I had so much fun stamping and coloring – I love products that allow you to customize them yourself:
