June Challenge

Hi Everyone & welcome to the new challenge at 
The Crafting Cafe
Our theme for this month is

Black & White

We are sponsored this month by the wonderful

Who have kindly provided images for the DT to work with!
Here's a little bit about the company

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!BIG HUGS!Nicole
