Welcome to Impress Me rubber stamps. We are an ANGEL
COMPANY,
 meaning that you can use our stamps in artwork for
sale.  We are very supportive of all artists and hope that you make
money on work using our rubber stamps.

Our stamps are unmounted and the average size of the stamps
sheet is 7" x 9" to 8" x 10".  The stamps can be cut into smaller
shapes with household scissors.  We do not recommend
mounting the stamps because the creative possibilities are
limited by doing so.  

The stamps are wonderful for:  rubber stamping, making
rubbings, and to use as a textured surface for creating clay
textures.

FOR THESE TWO
PIECES, I PATTED
PAINT ONTO
SELECTED AREAS
OF SET 2 AND MADE
A SERIES OF PRINTS
WITH THE EDGES
FREE-FORM.  THIS IS
MY FAVORITE WAY
TO WORK.  I LIKE TO
CREATE LAYERS OF
COLORS.  ALSO, BY
NOT CUTTING THE
SET APART, MANY
MORE DESIGN
COMBINATIONS CAN
BE FORMED.  I USED
 ACRYLIC PAINT AND
IMMEDIATELY
CLEANED THE
RUBBER STAMP SET
WITH WATER AND A
ROTARY
TOOTHBRUSH.
I CREATED THIS PIECE USING SET 11.   I STAMPED
SUCCEEDING LAYERS OF COLORS USING
ACRYLIC PAINT.  I PRINTED THE DESIGN WITHOUT
CUTTING THE STAMP SET APART.  YOU CAN USE
IT AS A FULL SET OR CUT IT APART INTO SMALLER
PIECES.  IT COMBINES VARIOUS SETS BUT IS
MAINLY DONE USING SET 11.  I LIKE TO COMBINE
DIFFERENT SETS FOR MORE INTERESTING
DESIGNS.
THIS IMAGE SHOWS OVERLAYS
OF COLORS USING SET 7.  I
CUT SET 7 INTO INDIVIDUAL
STAMPS.  I USED A VARIETY OF
CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S
PIGMENT INKS TO CREATE THE
FINISHED DESIGN.  THE
STAMPS COULD BE USED
INDIVIDUALLY FOR CARDS AND
OTHER EXCITING  PROJECTS.  I
WOULD USE IT FOR BOOK
COVERS, TEESHIRT DESIGNS,
AND QUILTING BLOCKS.  
I PRINTED THE ENTIRE SET 24 USING A SPONGE TO APPLY LIQUID INK
TO THE RUBBER STAMP SURFACE.  I LAID A PIECE OF WHITE
CARDSTOCK ONTO THE RUBBER STAMP AND MADE AN IMPRESSION.  
I COLORED IN THE DESIGN WITH COLORED PENCILS.
THIS PIECE WAS CREATED BY PUTTING A PIECE OF
WHITE COTTON FABRIC OVER THE UN-CUT SET 23.  I
USED OIL PASTELS TO LAYER THE COLORS.  I ADDED
SOME DETAIL USING COLORED PENCILS.
THIS PIECE WAS CREATED ON CARDSTOCK.  I COMBINED
LAYERS OF COLORS AND STAMPED IMAGES FROM SET
21.  THE SET WAS NOT CUT APART AND I MOVED THE
CARDSTOCK TO EACH AREA AND PRINTED EACH
SEPARATELY.  I CLEANED THE RUBBER STAMP WITH A
ROTARY TOOTHBRUSH AND WATER IN BETWEEN COLOR
APPLICATIONS.  I USED ACRYLICS TO CREATE THIS
PIECE.  THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF KEEPING THE SET
INTACT AND NOT CUTTING IT.  YOU CAN CREATE COLOR
OVERLAYS TO MAKE INTERESTING FINE ART, CARDS,
BACKGROUNDS OR PIECES FOR COLLAGE.
THIS DESIGN WAS CREATED BY USING STAMPS
FROM SET 20 AFTER I CUT IT APART.  I STAMPED
MULTIPLE COLORED IMAGES USING CLEARSNAP'S
CRAFTER,S PIGMENT STAMP PAD INK.  I LAYERED
THE COLORS ON CARDSTOCK AND ALSO PRINTED
THE IMAGES SEVERAL TIMES TO GET LIGHTER AND
LIGHTER IMPRESSIONS.  THE ADDITIONAL COLOR
WAS ADDED WITH  CHALK PASTELS.  I APPLIED THE
PASTEL COLOR TO THE PAPER AND THEN USED A
PAPER TOWEL TO BLEND THE COLORS.
I USED SET 17 WITHOUT CUTTING IT APART TO
CREATE THIS PAINTED DESIGN.  I USED ACRYLIC
PAINTS AND APPLIED EACH COLOR INDIVIDUALLY.  I
CLEANED THE RUBBER STAMP IN BETWEEN COLOR
CHANGES WITH A ROTARY TOOTHBRUSH AND
WATER.  I SLIPPED A LIZARD IMAGE FROM SET 11
NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE MIDDLE AND THEN
STAMPED OVER IT TO MAKE IT LESS OBVIOUS.  I
LIKE TO COMBINE THE SETS TO MAKE THE DESIGNS
MORE INTERESTING.
I LOVED DRAWING SET 16.  I LOVE BUTTERFLIES AND I MADE UP A LOT OF THE DESIGN BY LOOKING AT
BUTTERFLY IMAGES AND THEN MAKING THE DESIGNS WITH LESS DETAIL AND WITH A BOLDER LOOK.  
THIS SET IS IDEAL FOR RUBBINGS AND ALSO FOR PRINTING FULL SCALE ON TEE SHIRTS, PLACEMATS,
ARTWORK, OR OTHER DESIGN PROJECTS.  I CUT APART THE STAMP SET AND USED THE PIECES TO
CREATE THE DESIGN ABOVE.
TO CREATE THIS DESIGN I STARTED WITH A PIECE
OF WHITE COTTON FABRIC.  I SPRAYED WATER ON
THE FABRIC AND THEN USE JACQUARD'S
DYE-NA-FLOW COLORS TO CREATE THE COLORED
SURFACE.  I USED AN EYEDROPPER TO APPLY THE
COLOR TO THE WET SURFACE AND LET THE
COLORS BLEED.  TO FINISH THE DESIGN I USED  
ACRYLICS AND STAMPED IMAGES FROM SET 15
AFTER CUTTING THE STAMP SET APART.
THIS PAINTING SHOWS POSSIBILITIES USING THE STAMPED IMAGES FOR PIECES OF FINE ART.  I STARTED
BY PAINTING THE BACKGROUND A MAUVE COLOR USING ACRYLIC PAINTS.  WHEN THE PAINT WAS DRY I
ADDED LAYERS OF COLLAGE THAT HAD SOME STAMPING ON THEM.  I CONTINUED TO PAINT AND STAMP TO
CREATE THE FINISHED PAINTING.  I USED  GESSO TO BRING OUT THE WHITES IN THE BACKGROUND.
THIS DESIGN WAS CREATED USING SET 14 AFTER I
CUT IT APART.  I USED CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S
PIGMENT INK TO CREATE THE COLOR LAYERS.  I
MADE MORE THAN ONE IMPRESSION WITH THE INK.
THE PIECE TO THE LEFT WAS DONE
USING SET 14 WITHOUT CUTTING IT
APART.  I BUILT LAYERS OF COLOR
USING  ACRYLIC PAINTS TO CREATE
THE BACKGROUND.  I COLLAGED A
PIECE OF PAPER ON THE RIGHT SIDE
THAT HAD IMPRESSIONS FROM SETS
12 AND 13.  I BUILT ADDITIONAL
COLORS ON THE SURFACE AND
USED SET 14 UNCUT TO MAKE
LARGE IMPRESSIONS.  I FINISHED
THE ARTWORK WITH BRUSHWORK
USING DARKER ACRYLIC PAINT
COLORS.
THE PIECE
WAS DONE BY
RUBBING
OVER A PIECE
OF
LIGHTWEIGHT
PAPER
PLACED OVER
SET 13.  I
USED OIL
PASTELS TO
MAKE THE
RUBBINGS.  
THE PIECE ON
THE LEFT WAS
DONE BY
RUBBING A
SLIM AREA OF
THE DESIGN
AND THEN
LEAVING
WHITE PAPER
TO SHOW IN
BETWEEN.
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF CUTTING SET 12 APART AND THEN PRINTING THE VARIOUS PIECES
WITH DIFFERENT COLORS.  I USED CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S PIGMENT INK STAMP PADS
TO CREATE THE COLOR OVERLAYS.  SET 12 IS ONE OF MY VERY COMPLEX SETS.  I TOOK
SET THIRTEEN AND DREW IN BETWEEN THE IMAGES TO CREATE THIS UNIQUE SET.  I LOVE
WORKING WITH BOTH SET 12 AND 13.
THIS DESIGN WAS CREATED USING SET 10.  I CUT THE SET APART AND THEN STAMPED INDIVIDUAL
STAMPS USING CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S PIGMENT INK.  I LIKE THIS STAMP PAD BECAUSE IT CAN GO ON
PAPER, FABRIC, WOOD, SHRINK PLASTIC AND MANY OTHER SURFACES.  I DID THIS EXAMPLE ON
CARDSTOCK.  SET 11, BELOW, IS A SIMILAR SET BUT IT IS CUT APART AND HAS SOME OTHER DESIGNS
INCLUDED IN IT.  BOTH SETS ARE VERY VERSATILE AND CAN BE USED IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.
TO CREATE THE PIECE
ABOVE I PAINTED LAYERS
OF ACRYLIC PAINT ON
WHITE COTTON FABRIC.  I
USED TWO STAMP SETS TO
CREATE THE FINISHED
DESIGN.  I USED SET 9 AND
21.  SET 9 WAS USED FOR
THE FACE AND SET 21 WAS
USED FOR THE DESIGN
PATTERNS ON THE RIGHT
AND LEFT OF THE FACE.  I
USED LIGHTER COLORS
FOR THE BACKGROUND
AND THEN USED FULL
STRENGTH VIOLET TO DO
THE STAMPING.  THE SETS
WERE NOT CUT APART TO
MAKE THE FINAL DESIGN.
SET 8
I LOVED CREATING THIS PIECE.  IT COMBINES MANY SETS INTO ONE
DESIGN.  YOU CAN SEE PARTS OF SET 8, SET 13, SET 4 AND OTHER
SETS.  THE DOMINANT COLOR AND SHAPE IS THE X IN THE CIRCLE IN
THE UPPER LEFT.  IT IS FROM SET 8.  ALSO THE GRIDS ARE GREAT
FUN IN THIS DESIGN.  TO CREATE THE PIECE I WET  WATERCOLOR
CRAYONS WITH A BRUSH AND BRUSHED THE COLOR OVER THE
STAMPS.  I PLACED CARDSTOCK OVER THE WET COLOR AND MADE A
PRINT.  I REPEATED THIS PROCESS OVER AND OVER UNTIL I LIKED
THE BASIC DESIGN. TO FINISH THE PIECE I USED A BRUSH AND
ADDITIONAL WATERCOLOR CRAYONS COLOR.  I DID NOT CUT THE
SETS APART TO MAKE THIS DESIGN.  I CAREFULLY PAINTED EACH
SHAPE BEFORE PRINTING IT.
SET 6
THIS SET COMBINES MANY OF THE SETS FROM THE
OLD STAMP SETS. TO MAKE THIS DESIGN, I CUT SET
SIX APART AND MADE IMPRESSIONS IN A VARIETY OF
COLORS USING CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S PIGMENT
INK.  I OVERLAPPED THE DESIGNS FOR A MORE
INTERESTING COMPOSITION.
SET 5
THIS SET HAS SOME VERY INTERESTING PIECES.  
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS BY KEEPING THE
SET INTACT OR CUTTING IT APART.  THE PIECE
ABOVE USED THE SET CUT APART.  I CREATED THE
DESIGN WITH CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S PIGMENT
INK AND THEN PAINTED OVER THE DESIGN WITH
LAYERS OF  WATERCOLOR CRAYONS.  I OUTLINED
THE CENTER PIECE WITH A THIN BLACK MARKER.
THIS IS A VERY VERSATILE SET.  IT HAS PATTERNS AND
MASKS AND IS GREAT FOR MAKING REPEAT
PATTERNS.  I CUT THE SET APART AND APPLIED THE
COLORS AND PATTERNS USING CLEARSNAP'S
CRAFTER'S PIGMENT INK STAMP PADS.  THIS SET
SHOWS MANY IMAGES FROM THE OLD STAMP
DESIGNS WITH NEW DESIGNS DRAWN AROUND THEM.
SET 3
THE PIECE ABOVE WAS CREATED
AFTER I CUT SET 3 APART.  I APPLIED
LAYERS OF COLORS AND DESIGNS
USING CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S
PIGMENT INK STAMP PADS.
THIS IS A RUBBING USING
VARIOUS SETS.  I DID THE
RUBBING ON WHITE
FABRIC USING OIL
PASTELS.
THIS IS A
RUBBING
DONE WITH
SET 1 PLACED
UNDER A PIECE
OF WHITE
COTTON
FABRIC.  I
USED OIL
PASTELS TO
MAKE THE
RUBBING.
SET 4
SET 7
SET 9
SET 10
SET 11
SET 12
SET 13
SET 14
SET 15
SET 16
SET 17
SET 18
I LAYERED COLORS OF ACRYLIC PAINT TO
CREATE THIS DESIGN FROM SET 18.  i ADDED
COLORED PENCIL OVER SELECTED AREAS TO
COMPLETE THE COMPOSITION.
THIS IS A RUBBING CREATED BY PLACING A
PIECE OF WHITE COTTON UNDERNEATH SET
19.  I USED OIL PASTELS TO CREATE THE
RUBBING.  I HIGHLIGHTED SELECTED AREAS
WITH COLORED PENCILS.
SET 19
SET 20
SET 21
SET 22
THIS PIECE WAS CREATED BY USING SET 22 CUT
INTO SMALLER SQUARES.  I STAMPED THE
IMAGES USING CLEARSNAP'S CRAFTER'S
PIGMENT INK, OVERLAPPING IMAGES.  
SET 23
SET 24
WE HAVE ADDED FOUR NEW SETS OF
STAMPS.  PEOPLE HAVE BEEN REQUESTING
DOLLS, ANGELS, AND FISH.  I WANTED A
SHEET WITH JUST TEXT, SO THAT IS THE
LAST SET WE ADDED.  THE SETS ARRIVED
ON DECEMBER 5TH, AND I WILL BE MAKING
EXAMPLES USING THEM.  YOU CAN ORDER
THEM RIGHT NOW, AS THEY ARE IN STOCK.
ATTENTION!!!!!
ATTENTION!!!!

We have four new
stamp sets.  Set 25
is Dolls, Set 26 is
Angels, Set 27 is
Fish, and Set 28 is
Type.  Scroll to the
bottom of the page
to view the new sets
and samples of how
you can use them in
your creative work.
The sample on the right is from the doll set shown
above.  I rubber stamped the background with set !5
and then rubber stamped the doll over the stamp set.  
I added washes of color to the background and
highlighted selected areas of the doll with colored
pencil details.  I also highlighted selected areas in the
background with colored pencils.
SET 25
The two dolls on the left were
created by stamping the doll image
on fabric.  The dolls were formed
by sewing a background to the
back of the cloth, wrong sides
together.  I sewed all the way
around the doll images with a very
small stitch.  I painted borders
around the dolls and also added
painted detalis to both dolls.  The
doll on the left has a rubber
stamped spiral from set 8.  To stuff
the dolls, I made a slit in several
places in the back of the doll and
inserted stuffing with a stuffing
tool.  

See my "Creative Embellishments"
book for step by step ideas for
creating stuffed images.
SET 26
The sample above was created by sponging
and texturing the background with acrylic
paint washes.  The parallel stripes at the top
are from set 28 which is a set that is all type.  It
is a great set for adding texture to all creative
work.  I added additional paint designs and
used colored pencil to highlight areas of the
angel and the the background.
The sample on the right started with a painted
background of various blues and browns.  I
used a Thermofax image to create the light
patterns through the center of the piece.  I
rubber stamped two angel images in black on
the piece.  I added additional acrylic washes
to the background areas.  I added details to
the two angels with paint and colored pencil.
The sample above was created by rubber
stamping over a previous painting with two
different doll stamps and a fish stamp at the top
of the piece.  I added additional color with acrylic
washes and colored pencil details.
The sample above was created by using
water-soluble marker washes in the center.  I
used Set 28 to create a text border around the
sample edges.  I also rubber stamped a doll on
both sides of the center to create the
compostion.  Additional color was applied with
acrylic paint washes and colored pencil.
These two angel dolls
were created exactly like
the dolls in set 25.  
Please scroll up above to
see the step by step
instructions about how to
create stuffed shapes.

My book "Creative
Embellishments" has full
step by step instructions
on how to create stuffed
shapes.
SET 27
If you look at the top of this piece, you will
see a fish border that I used to create
texture by creating a border with a fish stamp.
The piece on the left was
created by stamping set
24 over a painted  
background.  After I
created the background, I
stamped set 19 over the
background using white
paint.  I added two fish,
that I left attached
together when I cut the
stamp apart, to the top of
the piece with dark paint.  
I added additional detail
with colored pencils to
create the finished
composition.
This piece was created by
collaging blue paper strips
to the surface.  I rubber
stamped type from set 28
over the blue pieces.  I
added painted washes to the
background of the collage
and then rubber stamped
the first fish image to the
lower part of the design.  I
stamped the outline of a
large fish above the first fish
and then rubber stamped
the same fish over the other
fish outline.  I created a
darker blue square around
the fish above and a red
orange square around the
fish below.  I then used set
28 again (which I had cut into
smaller pieces) to create a
textured background.  I
finished the design with
metallic gold squares on the
left and right towards the
top and added colored
pencil details to the final
composition.
SET 28
Stamp set 28 was created to add texture to projects
and also borders around designs.  I designed this
set for mixed media artists that like to use text in
their work.  I purposely left the text without spaces
and with no specific  meaning so that it would just
be used as texture.  The sample above shows the
text used as a border, with the emphasis on the
dolls.  I am excited about this set and have wanted
a text set for a long time.
