What a pure pleasure it is to create with ImpressArt products! About 20 designers were
chosen to recieve a generous amount of products in which to create some stunning works of art!  Look on the right sidebar for the blue Designer Craft Connections (DCC) hop button & hop
from one design to another.  Have fun!!


ImpressArt metal stamping blanks were the perfect canvas to stamp unique sentiments!  I decided since Mother's Day is this weekend, a special one of a kind gift was in order.  A necklace.


I selected the butterfly blank to begin the necklace since she loves butterflies.  The heart metal stamp made subtle LOVE impressions on the wings & body of the butterfly.  I've gotta add, that I LOVE this little one pound hammer!  The short handle makes easier to hit the "mark".


Using the Stamp Straight Tape made stamping straight a breeze!  I love this technique!


When the stamping is complete, use a black Sharpie marker to cover the stamped image to fill in the letters, then wipe off excess.  This makes the letters stand out.


The Stamp Straight Tape used to make stamping a breeze.


The tape being used to mark the areas to be stamped.


WHA LA!  Perfection!  But even if your stamping is off a little,
that's what makes each piece so unique.


Punched a few holes to join the pieces and add the beaded dangle.


And now.......Mom's one of a kind necklace is complete!
