Today was such a fun afternoon. We were delightfully entertained by the owner and designer of Local King Rubber Stamps, Lisa Yang. Lisa is a very talented artist and loves to share her "quick and easy" card making techniques using her stamps and matching dies. She's always reminding us that the beautiful cards you make from Local King Rubber Stamps and the matching dies only take 10-15 minutes to make, even though you can easily tell the lucky recipient that 'this card' took you only 2-3 hours to make. I'll have a few photos to post this week. In the meantime, Lisa did leave the stamps and dies she brought for the Trunk Show this afternoon so you, too, can add to or start a collection of her terrific stamps. Lisa's die designs are unique only to Local King Rubber Stamps . . . like the stamps, their dies are only sold from LKRS at the stamp shows 
they participate in; online on their website; or at Art 'n Soul. We are proud  that Lisa only sells wholesale to Art 'n Soul for retail sale. The dies are designed to cut very close to the stamped image, cut blank space openings within the stamped image, and have embossing features on the die that you can run through again on the embossing setting.

Over half of the small order we received from Rubber Moon has already disappeared . . . so you should venture in very soon. If we have run out of the stamps used in the card samples they sent, you are welcome to fill out an order because we plan to submit another order very soon.

I love the whimsey in the Rubber Moon stamps!

Susie found a treasure at Recycled Rubber and used it to make this card. The stamp that used to belong to "M.D." is perfect for entangling, and Susie thanks M.D.!

The Summer Olympics' closing ceremony tonight was f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! All I could think of . . . what would it have been like to actually be a participating athlete standing in the stadium throughout the ceremony. London . . . you knocked this one out of the ballpark!

Tomorrow I should be able to finish editing the photos from Journal Club on Friday . . . they're soooo good!
