Saturday's Play Day with Stencils was totally fun and everyone learned a lot from Marj.

Marj left her stencil/template samples with brief information/descriptions at Art 'n Soul for you to look over and enjoy for a few days this week. And there might be some of the new stencils or templates from Saturday to make your own 'stencil art' with. It will have to be taken away when we set up for Recycled Rubber! We're so fortunate that Marj is always willing to lend her talents and expertise at a Play Day. Thanks so much, Marj!

On the IMAGINE Crafts blog, John Petersen has posted a video introducing the new Delicata 4 Ink Pads that include their two latest colors, Bronze Burst and Celestial Copper. Be sure to watch the video.

Kae Pea with RubberMoon charms us again with her stamp designs and the continued introduction of the new black Art Squares from Inchie Arts. I love this . . . it reminds me of the golden-oldie television show, The Honeymooners!

On the Ranger blog, Shelly Hickox steps out using an embossing technique as a resist. She ends up with an art block that would make an amazing personal gift. We picked up this posting from the Millsrepco blog.

Here's the link to her step-by-step directions:

I shared this posting because she uses this same technique on this project:

As I quickly scanned through Shelly's blog, which I really really like, I saw this Artist Trading Card Box project she worked up for Stampendous.

PoppyStamps' new blog challenge is "Through My Window."

"Challenge #6 - March 2015 - Through My Window
Some days it feels like winter is here to stay.  Are you looking out the window dreaming of when you'll be able to sit outside again?    Our challenge this month is "Through My Window".  This could be a project featuring one of our window dies,  a scene of what you see out your window (or are wishing you'd see out your window), or even  a die cut "window"  or "frame" (shaker cards anybody?)    Just make sure you include at least one Poppystamps image on your design!"
These are a couple of 'inspiration' samples they posted . . .

Also on the PoppyStamps' blog is a very cheerful and simple card featuring the inlay technique using one of their new dies.

The next few days are supposed to bring us good weather. That would be a great time to check in at Art 'n Soul for the latest inspirations!

It's Girl Scout Cookie time . . .
