Cathy Andronicou has done it again with a Penny Black stamp and ink products from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko. I love that the whole design is on the actual base card.

From the IMAGINE Crafts' blog, Ellen Taylor has created a card using the Kaleidacolor inks.

Over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog, Karen Aicken works with the Elizabeth Craft Designs' adhesive-backed velvet paper and their dies. What I liked is how they use every part of the dies for the flowers on this card.

I'm going to have to go back and re-visit some of my overlay dies, and most definitely find that adhesive-backed velvet paper at Art 'n Soul!

I like the technique that Lisa Lee shows on her Inchie Arts blog. It then takes us to Dina Kowal's blog where she explains the mono printing process with Inktense Blocks.

Have you signed up for Lisa's class on Saturday? I really try to take every class that Lisa teaches at Art 'n Soul and I cannot wait for Saturday's class. And, I cannot wait to see the new 4-inch Art Square that she'll bring to the store.

Saturday, April 26, 1:00-3:00 pm.  WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUES WITH TWINKLING H20’S & ART SQUARES”  - Lisa Lee  $30 
Revisit the basic and then apply some tips and tricks to create several cards combining stamping and painting with different water soluble paint techniques, including Tombow markers and Twinkling H2O paints on a variety of sizes of Art Squares. One of the projects will include creating a set of 4 notecards for yourself or to give as a gift. All supplies will be included, but if you have your own water brush pens, markers or paints, please bring them to stay after class and learn some tips and tricks with your own colors.

That's all for tonight. For the customer who is working with Dianne to purchase more of the Neenah Classic Crest card stock in Natural White, I want to let you know that a re-stocking will be at the store tomorrow (Friday) by 2 p.m., if not earlier.

And a special 'thank you' to Robin Taylor for the beautiful thank you card you presented to us at Art 'n Soul!
