Stopping in today with a fun new-to-me product from Splitcoaststampers sponsor Clearsnap! It’s called the Magic Stamp, and apparently I have been under a stamping rock for 10 years because I’ve never known of this product before! Basically, it is the specially formulated blue foam block you see in photo above that lets you make your own stamp impressions from anything around you!
It’s March Madness, and in Kansas – where basketball was born (#truth) it’s always crazy – most often it’s crazy fun! SO, I grabbed the mini basketball off of my treasures’ shelf – it was signed by Perry Ellis that time my friend Karla and I got to meet several players at a Wichita meet-and-greet. Fun to create with a real basketball texture.

For my next stamp, I picked up a wood-carved trivet that I’ve been painting. Look at the detail that the Magic Stamp picked up:
This was my first attempt with the Magic Stamp, and that was CRAZY impressive to me! For all of my samples, I’m using Impress Fresh Ink – my new found ink love! After two recent retreats, I’ve ordered a whole slew of beautiful, rich ink pads.
Finally, I opened a jar of buttons and created this blue buttons card. I was super impressed (no pun intended) that the Magic Stamp was a breeze to clean up.
I had thought it would be full of inky-ink residue after an impression or two, but it basically cleans up beautifully and heats back to original form. Use it over and over and over.
The fun thing about this product is that the backgrounds you create are easy to form into cute and quick cards with a personal flair. I have a slew of sample impression samples on my desk waiting for card stock bases to love.
