Anything Goes Challenge No. 59

Welcome fellow bloggers! We've got a wonderful line up today but before we get started, there's a little housekeeping to be done.
First, I apologize I've not written anything about this before. But if you take a look over there
to the left, there is a short list of rules. Sad to say that we need to have rules in the crafting world but there are some folks who don't play nice! :( So with that said, please read over the rules. I've not been enforcing this for many reasons, but please, link your post to the this post and not to the Inlinkz and add your challenge post to the linky and not your blog post. It takes time looking for the correct post if it's not linked up correctly and other's won't know all about our blog if you've linked to the Inlinkz instead of the challenge post. I'm not asking anyone to do anything different than from any other challenge blog. Please. Let's play fair! :D
Ssooo... we've got THREE generous sponsors this week! We have Doctor Digi's House of Stamps with TWO digis for ONE lucky winner, Inky Impressions with THREE images and ONE sentiment for a second winner and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps with a $10 GC for a third lucky winner!! Woohoo! So let's get this party started!
Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. Here you will find monsters, aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many many more wonderful digital stamps. Our artist and founder cut his teeth in the craft world at the company "Just Inklined", where his unique digis made a huge impression. We're hoping to continue to entertain and amuse, with our growing catalogue of great value digis with a sense of humour.
We are a family owned art rubber stamp company that has been in business since June of 2009. We are located in the United States in Northeastern, Ohio. We are proud to say that all of our rubber stamps are made right here in the U.S.A. We are dedicated to providing crafters around the world with some of the cutest rubber and digital stamp designs.
When Inky Impressions originally opened our doors in 2009, we only offered rubber stamps. However, after a few years and many requests from our customers, we opted to offer some of our designs in digital format. All digital stamp images are sent out at 300 DPI. Opting for digital images allows you more freedom to play with image. You can resize it, flip it and print it in any color you choose.
As for our rubber stamps, each and every stamp made is “extra deep etched” on quality red rubber for a crisp impression every time! All Inky Impressions rubber stamps are sold with EZ mount cling and come to you on a laminated 4” by 6” color card. This color card allows the customer to have a coloring reference when using the image.
Inky Impressions offers many girl and boy characters, however, our main characters are LiLi, Angelica, Nicholas and Christopher. These characters are cartoon drawings of our children.
I would like to share with you the story of how Inky Impressions was born. When I first started crafting, I would typically use die cuts and stickers, but eventually started using rubber stamps to create some of my page layouts. I have always loved the cute style! And as you probably know, finding a cute little girl or little boy stamp back in 2002, consisted of a stick figure rubber stamp that was wood mounted. It worked for the time being, but after many years, I felt the need to bring exactly what I had envisioned to life….. This is when we decided to take that leap and go for it! With much excitement, we had the website built and Inky was born. I am very proud to say that Inky Impressions was the first rubber stamp company in the world to offer characters with realistic features.
Being a stay at home mommy and wife has allowed me the opportunity and the time to devote to Inky Impressions. Without the support of my family and friends, my dream of Inky Impressions would not have been possible. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to share my dream with you. We are devoted to you, our customers, so please feel free to share your artwork that is made with our stamps, or to just drop us a line to say hello!
We strive to to bring glory to God through everything we do, We strive to to bring glory to God through everything we do, for without Him, we could do nothing.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Our Story:
We are a small, family-owned, Christian company offering exclusive hand-drawn images in both clear and digital stamps to the paper crafting community.
We got our start back in November of 2007 when Korin was searching for a knight stamp to use for our son's 5th birthday party invitations. The search failed so she decided to draw one herself and, as they say, the rest is history. :)
That first knight drawing became our first stamp set, which turned into four stamp sets, which soon became many, many stamp sets.
In addition to our "sweet 'n sassy" images and sentiments, we pride ourselves in offering many KJV scripture stamps. Our personal conviction is that the KJV Bible is the most accurate and we found the industry really lacking in this area, so we decided to do something about it. God's Word is so important to us and we love sharing it with others in this way!
In February 2009, we introduced digital stamps to our line and what a blessing that was! It opened up a whole new market for us and allowed us to bring even more of our exclusive images to our customers.
In Fall 2011, we introduced our first die set and it was a huge hit. We have since added others to our die line but only gradually, as they are more expensive to manufacture. We look forward to bringing you more fabulous die designs in the future!
It has been an amazing journey thus far full of countless blessings and we can't wait to see where the Lord leads next! We invite you join us as we continue on this exciting journey!
Because He lives,
Korin & Dan Sutherland
