This month, Art 'n Soul's INSPIRATION STATION features the Dina Wakley Mixed Media Stamp Set from Ranger, "Handwritten Quotes." All of the cards are on display at Art 'n Soul.

Today's INSPIRATION STATION comes from me. It also features a well-known stamp from Magenta and colored pencil work using Prismacolor Colored Pencils.

Pam will be at the store all day today and looks forward to showing you techniques and ideas to help with your next project, or even your first project! That's one of the sole differences between Art 'n Soul and other big box stores . . . they don't take the time to show you how something works, work with you on your latest project, or recommend tools and supplies that will be best for your project. We hope that you will always keep that in mind! We love our customers and we love meeting new customers who have never visited Art 'n Soul before.

Magenta has announced another new member to their Design Team. Her name is Miranda Degenaars and she hails from the Netherlands. On the Magenta blog, here is her first official introductory card posting . . .

It's going to be a delight to see the art work by Miranda on the Magenta blog.

Linda McMillan has shared a stunning wedding card on the PoppyStamps' blog. I think the inside of the card is just as stunning as the front.

Sandy Allnock has shown several techniques on the various Art Squares from Inchie Arts. Some we've enjoyed in classes at Art 'n Soul taught by Lisa Lee, creator and owner of Inchie Arts. It's worth your while to go to Sandy's posting for her "take" on inches, twinchies and ATC's from Inchie Arts.

On the Hero Arts' blog, Mariana Grigsby shares how to use die cuts as masks for different uses. Enjoy the video!

On the Ranger blog, Anna-Karin has made a tag that I really like because it features one of those Bird Crazy stamps by Tim Holtz. The tutorial is about Ranger's Micro Glaze as a water-resist. And, this project uses the latest Distress Ink colors that have been streaming in at Art 'n Soul.

Carolyn had a great weekend at Art 'n Soul and Pam is going to start another great week at Art 'n Soul. Have you put in your latest order from Impression Obsession? I just finished mine last week . . . there are so many great selections from which to choose. Pam will point you in the right direction if you get lost in their newest catalog release or an older version.
