Woodblock Wednesday Guest Designer!

I was so happy to receive the invitation to be amy Tsuruta's guest designer for her fabulous Woodblock Wednesday

It just so happens my favorite woodblock stamp is from my day spent in the PNW with amy [and our friend Kimberly, too!] at Impress, in Tukwila! 

Once I get that little stamp out, I want to leave it out!!  Here she is, used in a few of my favorite ways... first one for amy, in her favorite color!

I even got my old Stamp-a-ma-jig out - still the
perfect way to line up these woodblocks!

Here are two more cards … using these fabulous Fresh Inks [also from Impress!].

In delicious clockwise order:
Melon, fig, persimmon, basil, harvest, and ginger
Double-dipping inks in totally allowed!

Here's another old tool that still comes in handy!

And here's a good save - garment tag pins!  

Thanks, dear friend … I loved playing cards with you on Woodblock Wednesday - or any day of the week!

Thank all of YOU for stopping by today - shall we go see what amy has in store today?  Let's go!

I can see why you love this's lovely...perfect for any season. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that background and the use of the twine. You were even able to use some embellies (sadly, neglected at my house). CAS perfection.

Congrats on your well-deserved Guest Designer spot, Michele!
There's nothing like the feel of a woodblock stamp, I always say :) I've kept many of mine ~ I really love how you played with this beautiful many great ideas, and your creative inking on the last 2 cards is amazing!

Going old school on us huh, Michele? That wonderful leaf deserves its place as the star of your cards just as you deserve a guest designer spot.
