I recently started stamping cards and was so happy to have this book as one of the first in my library!! I loved the unique, classy designs - easy and fun to do!! The step by step instructions are great and the color pictures are very helpful. I shop at a local Impress store and love it! Each time I go in I have to control myself - they've got more great ideas in the store!!
The author Kathryn Perkins is also a co-owner of a rubber stamp store chain called Impress. I love her store! And I LOVE THIS BOOK! Her designs are very elegant, versatile, and beautiful. The instructions and pictures are clear, concise, and easy to follow. If you ever come to Washington State, visit one of her 4 stamp stores--they'll IMPRESS you!
This stamping book features new and more upscale ideas for creating cards and small gifts. It lives up to its title.The introduction discusses materials and techniques.The directions are very complete and easy to follow. Each project is accompanied by extensive colored photographs and some also include black and white drawings showing dimensions and fold lines.A complete listing of materials is included for each project.I own many stamping books and I was most impressed with this one. The ideas were a big step above some of the more "cutesy" ideas found in other books.
I am quite impressed with the contents of this book! The ideas inspired me and motivated my creativity. I have done each project in this book within two days from receiving it! Once I started I could not stop! Very easy to understand and follow through to completion.The author provides a complete listing of materials for each project. Well done color photographs of steps are included throughout the book. She also lists the companies where she purchased her supplies, in the back of the book.An elegant way to present art!
I received this book from just today and was simply thrilled when I browsed through it. I have been rubber stamping for quite sometime now and have wanted to get books with cards that look "professional" (cards that look more like what you buy from stores than those that look like "kid's art"). I find this book to give me the inspiration I need when I want to make a good quality card for someone special. The cards are simple-to-make yet look elegant. A good buy!
Very classy stamping ideas in an easy to understand format. An appendix provides information on all the stamps used.
I live in Washington, and spend more time than my husband would like in "Impress", whose owner penned this book.It is a great book for style and substance..but most of all, starters. The designs are not too complicated for the early - medium crafter, but will require specific tools.Ms. Perkins has great creativity (or a fabulous design team), which is evident in this book - but the suggestions also utilize several items exclusive to the "Impress" line of stamps and products. This fact wasn't as helpful to the friend I sent it to in Hawaii. She really loved the designs, but was apprehensive about spending so much on products and shipping from the author's web store.All in all, I do use this book, and add my own sense of personal style to the building blocks she has laid before us in "Stamping with Style". Worth a look. ~*~
