A Raven Pocket - Stamping on Fabric
I get asked a lot if you can stamp on fabric. And unfortunately it's not a simple yes or no answer it depends on a lot of things; the image, how much detail you need, the ink used, the fabric you are stamping on, and the surface. This is an example of a large image, The Large Raven, and "Nevermore." stamped with Jet Black stAzon, on muslin fabric. As you can see not all of the detail was captured onto the fabric, but the overall outcome is pretty spiffy.
This is was a quick little project my sister and I worked on before our local parade - you wouldn't believe how much candy fit into that pocket! This may not answer all of your fabric-stamping questions, but it gives you an idea of one project idea that combines sewing with stamping!

New Stamps by Talk2Trees
New stamps are in the shop! I do have the 2013 supplement ready, but I'm still working on getting them all uploaded onto the website. But I have a new collection and I just couldn't wait to share these images, so I got them ready first. All of these are on the site now.
To create these stamps I got to work an amazing Etsy artist, Rachel, of Tree Talker Art. I was very drawn to her creative imagery and asker her if she wanted to design a line of rubber stamps for 100 Proof Press, and she said yes! I encourage you to stop by her shop and take a tour through her artwork and imagination. You can also follow her on Facebook. I had a lot of fun working with her, and I hope you like the stamps!
This is a sample card I made with the Mama and Baby Raccoon. The new supplement has quite few new "word" stamps that will be card-maker friendly. I hope you share this excitement with me, and I can't wait to see what you do with the new images!

Stamped Feather Cards
I've noticed that feather stamps have been flying out the door lately, so I'm going to share two simple feather cards you can stamp up - one uses the small feather, and the other one, the favorite feather. On the first card Teresa Abajo stamped a rainbow of small feathers using 10 different distress ink colors, wrapped the card with twine, and added a simple, but meaningful sentiment. This card will surely bring some cheer to the recipient.
And here is a card by Jennifer Ingle, she has used the large (favorite) feather to create a "feathered thanks." She stamped the feather with a deep peach color and embossed the tips with a lavender embossing powder from Stampendous. She added a sticker to finish the card.
Thanks for stopping by today - What would your feather card say?

It's Canning & Stamping Time
It's that time of year when if you grow tomomatoes you have more fruits then you know what to do with. We have been slicing and dicing and canning salsa, salsa, and more salsa. Design team member, Alexa Lett, knew just what to do with the mason jar stamp. This is a mixed media piece is designed around the jar that incorporates a lovely vintage-handmade feel. I like the way she used the old pages of a book for a canvas, and the free-motion stitching ties it all together. And of course, you have to love the little heart in the jar - what would you put in mason jar?

My dad can't stop wondering why it's called canning, and not jarring. Anyone?
