More photos from Art 'n Soul's 11th Birthday Party on Sunday. People were very interested in the diversity of the demo's as you can see.

Sandy Allnock demonstrating watercolor
techniques using the Art Impressions'
watercolor stamp series. Art Impressions also
sent the stamp and die line for a trunk show
during the Party!
Sandy A. also provided great information on
supplies, i.e., the watercolor paper block. I've
been able to secure a source for those -- yay!

John Creighton Petersen with IMAGINE Crafts featuring Tsukineko products was having fun showing the many ways you can use the new Iridescent Creative Mediums with stencils, and layering the designs.

I shared the table with John to demo the new Radiant Neon Amplify! and StazOn Studio Glaze from IMAGINE Crafts. Not only can you use either product directly onto your surface, I also use my stamps in them.

The photographer forgot to ask, "smile"!

Radiant Neon Amplify! is upper right.

IMAGINE Crafts' Radiant Neon Amplify! puffs up when heat set. When I stamp with it, it provides a really nice 3-D texture. The Amplify! complements all of the Radiant Neon Pigment Ink colors that were introduced last year.

The StazOn Studio Glaze from IMAGINE Crafts complements all of the StazOn Midi Solvent Inks introduced last year. It is just that, a wonderful shiny glaze! And like the Radiant Neon Amplify!, I love stamping with it.

Helene Metivier of Magenta always has the best samples. And she didn't disappoint at all with the introduction of Magenta's new Templates designs by their new artist. The template designs combined with the new Nuance watercolors made for a very colorful afternoon!

All of these samples included heat embossing before the Nuance watercolors were applied.

Sandy hard at the "art" work she loves, Hasty Lace!
I spy Janice Shineman and I also spy
Trish Largen (in the back, right) looking at
the Hasty Lace designs.

I wonder what Reid is contemplating!

bag 'em up!

Here's a happy group . . . (l to r):

The highlight of the entire party? Those yummy, wonderful cupcakes from Kristin Weeks. Whenever Susie has a gathering of any kind and desserts are part of the menu, she always calls upon Kristin to provide the yummiest delights!

That's all I have time for. I'll be back tomorrow with more! In the meantime, we're still "high on inspiring you" even though the Birthday Party is behind us. Come on in and let us help you . . . or, come on in and show us your latest card designs or multi-media project.

I had to share this photo of a new baby fox who visited Els' place in Colorado (Els of Elizabeth Craft Designs) . . .
