seattle paper: impress rubber stamps

i've been meaning to post about impress rubber stamps FOREVER but valentine's day finally got me in gear! impress is a cute little stamp and paper craft store with three locations around the seattle area (tukwila, bellevue and university village) -- my closest one is in the bellevue square mall and i can't help but stop in there every time we're nearby.

the shop is PACKED full of amazing rubber stamps -- we're talking wall to wall, floor to ceiling. i'm not even a huge stamper but i always get a little giddy thinking of all the possibilities impress can help you create. how adorable is this seattle-themed valentine??

impress also offers a wide array of card-making classes -- check out their online class catalog full of valentine workshops. they had a pop-up valentine class last night that sounded pretty fun -- look, this chair is made out of paper:

impress sells some non-stamp items too, like embellishments and paper sheets and cute packaging. and they have plenty of stamped projects around to help you get some inspiration. all the images i pulled for this post are from their facebook page, and you can learn to make them in upcoming classes.
