Impress Rubber Stamps + giveaway!

Some of you may know that my friend Thienly, of Mod Paperie, visited Seattle with her family last week. The first place that I wanted to bring her was my favorite rubber stamp store, Impress

There are 3 Impress store locations in Washington State but my favorite is the one at Tukwilla. It is about a 40 mins drive from my home but I try to find every excuse I can get to go there. This time, not only did I have Thienly's visit as my big excuse to visit the store, the Impress' Holiday Event was in itself, a wonderful reason to be there.

I tell Hubby that I like to go to Impress "because it impresses me" (haha!) every time I go there. Just look at all these cards that they have on display at the store. They are pretty impressive, don't you think. (Sorry, I couldn't help it. I'll stop with the corniness now. :-P  )

Love how "JOY" is stamped in a different color and over the tree.
"fleece Navidad"! Haha!
I LOVE this card!
Make a tree stand out from the rest by making it 3D.
There's a bell on Rudolph! and I love how the ornaments are stamped and "strung" up.

I've always enjoyed going to the Impress store. Their cards always inspire me and some, like the ones below, just crack me up. 


Impress is a rubber stamper's paradise. They sell stamps, and papers and inkpads and they have the coolest embellishments. I buy the neatest brads from them but I do love these honeycomb papers that they carry. All you have to do is cut and open it up and you'll find a fancy new embellishment for your project.


I love these divine twine too. I must have these in every color!


If you want to see even more pictures of the Holiday event, just click here to check out the photos from the Impress "Christmas in July" album on Facebook.

If you are in the Seattle area, you must visit Impress. If you are not in the Seattle area, you can still get your stamping goodies from the Impress online store. Even better, Impress has just started their web sale on Thursday and you can use the coupon code "summer sale" for 15% off everything. 


Also, and only for the readers of this blog, Impress is offering a really awesome giveaway. One of you will win......

  11. Thanks so much for sharing this store & website. Sadly, I will not be in Washington anytime soon, so online will have to be my option for now. I like that they show you ways to use the products in new ways. I absolutely love the watermelon stamp. The divine twine is a must-have as well. Oh, Jin, I can already feel my credit card hemorrhaging!!! C:

    PS I want all that twine too!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a fun store! I live about 1 1/2 hours north, but if I get down that direction I might have to stop by! I LOVE the Divine twine that they have - I'm kind of addicted to twine, and that is beautiful! I also liked their Facebook page. Thanks for an INCREDIBLE giveaway! Wow - some lucky person is going to be very happy!

  38. Oh my goodness - you highlighted every single one of my favorite cards at the event!! Wasn't it just an amazing show?!! I walked out of there with a ginormous bag of goodies that I can't wait to start playing with. And yes, I can speak from experience, that those Fresh Inks are second to NONE!! The coverage is flawless - it's a perfect stamp every single time!! I'm so sad that we missed meeting each other, but we'll definitely have to make a point of meeting up some time soon. The next time you decide to make a trip south, FB message me and maybe we can go together?!! Great giveaway, Jin - that lucky winner is going to feel like they died and went to heaven when they get their hands on those delicious inks!!

    I especially love the nature stamps; they have beautiful flowers.

    I too love the raindeer stamp, it looks like the antlers where samped with a letterpress.

  105. Started checking out their store when my dd went to college in Tacoma. So, when we take her to school in the fall and pick her up in the spring, I get to stock up on supplies from Impress Rubber Stamps. Their store in Tukwila is awesome. I love the Memory Box Dies and their rubber stamps. The Fresh Ink Pad are to die for. So disappointed my daughter is driving herself back this fall and I miss out on my fix.

  115. Wow! I am impressed. Did not know about the Impress stores in Washington and will definitely have to get a motel and spend a weekend. Before the snow falls and makes the passes treacherous. LOL! I'm sure I could easily spend a day looking around and getting ideas. I like the idea of the demo cards so you get an idea of what you can do with the stamps and different embellishments. Those ink pads are beautiful. I could sure have fun with them.

    Thanks for taking the time to post your blog and sharing such a wonderful crafter's paradise.

  116. Oh...forgot to mention one thing from the online store. I like the liquid applique. They show it used as whipped cream on a card but I think it would be perfect to use as snow on winter cards.

  123. I just discovered your blog and LOVE how your tutorials are so easy to follow. Visited the Impress online store for the first time and really liked their watermelon stamp. I especially like how they added glossy accents on their sample to make the seeds pop.

  124. Oh, how I miss this store...used to visit at least twice a month when I lived in Seattle. What I like best is their selection of inks. Also, those Copic markers they sell are the best markers for coloring!!!!

  125. I just found your blog and love it! I have LOVED Impress for years and its so hard to choose just one item from the store! Fresh Ink in Red Current and Tomato Red are amazing, and so are all of the Savvy Stamps.
