The day is finally here! The Designer Craft Connection professional designers have been very busy creating wonderful designs with the fabulous products from ImpressArt Metal Stamps and embellishments.
I must admit that this was the very first time I used these metal stamps and I was a little nervous that they would be hard to use. My first thought was I was going to break one of my fingers, or worse than that, I would break a new manicured nail! Oh my gosh, we cannot have that! But I realized that after I practiced a few times and I made sure that I taped the metal embellishment down to the metal pounding block, these little metal stamps were very easy to use.
Well, that was all it took to have me hooked! I began pounding these little metal stamps on everything. I finally had to stop because the constant pounding was scaring my little wiener dog so badly that I was sure she was going to have a doggie heart attack!!!
So with scared wiener dogs aside, if you’re looking for great ideas using these terrific metal stamps, you have come to the right place. All you need to do is clink on the Designer Craft Connection blinkie on the right side of my blog to begin hopping from one blog to the next. And for more information on the ImpressArt Metal Stamps and embellishments, please visit their blog at www.impressart.com. I hope you have a wonderful time hopping from blog to blog. I know I will!!!
Thank you for joining me. Until next time…
