So happy to be one of the artist at Impression Obsession.

I been an stamp designer for IOStamps for one year now and am loving it!!! I am a wife and mother of two boys, one daughter-in-law and two of the cutest grandsons ever (well, at least in my opinion). This summer I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary with my wonderful husband who has been my biggest supporter and encourager as I play in the world of art.


I have loved drawing, doodling and lettering since I was a young girl and there is not much that makes me happier than a set of new markers or fresh journal. I am privileged and humbled to be a part of the Impression Obsession family and love designing rubber stamps for them and still can't believe I get paid for this! Designing stamps has been a dream of mine ever since I worked in stationary boutique when my boys were babies (the early 80s.) I fell in love with rubber stamps and quickly incorporated them into my craft supplies and have been stamping ever since

I love whimsy and some of favorite stamps to design are cute little kids, whimsical flowers and of course hand-lettering sprinkled with some faith-based stamps.

Mixed Media Project

Drabbled with something new today. Made a Mixed Media birch canvas!
Tried out some new products (to me) that I had gotten for Christmas and loved every second of the journey.


Started with a birch canvas


And just keep adding elements
  • old journal pages
  • stickers
  • chipboard letters
  • buttons
Anything goes!!!
I pretty much had everything laying around the craft room.



 
It was my first time to use Memory Hardware Artisan Powder 
and Prima Metallique Wax (this stuff is way too fun)!!

Love Me Some Coffee

Today's offering is for all my coffee-loving friends out there!


My friend Kelly used two of my stamps from Impression Obsession, Inc to make these fun Valentines for her adult kids. 
She used my Coffee Love stamp (cute little cup with hearts) in the corner of her card.

She tucked a Starbucks gift card inside the card once she made a separate card by stamping my Coffee Helps and attaching it the front of the gift card envelope.





I also have 2 Coffee Sets 


Happy Coffee Set



Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with Love and Affine...

Happy Stamping, 
Nola
