Hi - Yes, it's Happy Friday and time for another reveal of more just-released designs from our beautiful Summer 2014 Collection.  Jean Okimoto here - with another quick card for you this afternoon.  It would be perfect for graduation thank you cards.  Or maybe for parents thanking the grad for receiving that long-anticipated degree!

Our great new Collection is arriving in stores right now - be sure your favorite retailer has placed their order.  It's already available at the Tukwila Impress - and the dies will be arriving at the University Village store tomorrow.  You'll love the beautiful designs!

Also wanted to send a big thanks to everyone from last Monday's JUST SAYING THANKS class at Impress.  It was the stampiest class we've had in a while - but we managed to add a bunch of stencils and diecuts too - thanks for working so hard!

Looking for more card ideas?  You'll find some great projects in the Ideas Gallery on our website.

Have a great weekend - but before you go, be sure to scroll down to see some photos from Pam's class - and some of her great cards too!






And now I'm kicking myself for not requesting this die! Gorgeous, Jean!

Thanks Deborah. No kicking - they are must-have, gotta-get, need-right-now dies…quick, before they sell out!

Your card is fabulous! Love the colors, and very surprised the butterfly outlines were dies, thought you had drawn them...great dies. Your class cards are spectacular, wish I could go, I would definitely enjoy it. Can't wait to see more.

Love the floating butterflies die!

Your card is beautiful. I love the butterflies. Do you think the Radiant Neons are more neony than the Hero Arts neons? I already have the Hero but was wondering about a comparison. Having not seen the Radiant, do you think I would know the difference?

Thanks for your comments everyone! Beverly…the Imagine Crafts Radiant Neons are vibrant, emboss-able, blendable pigment inks and perfect for stenciling and stamping. Air-dry them in a minute or two - or you can quickly dry them with a heat tool. We love to emboss with Radiant Neons - detail clear EP for a smooth gloss, Imagine Crafts Iridescent EP for more sparkle, or a pearl EP for a shimmery luster. Haven't used the HA dye ink neons - I like the versatility of the Radiant Neon pigment inks…and my students love them too!

Thank you, Jean. I'll have to add them to my next order.

Another beautiful card...and more dies to buy!

Beautiful card Jean! I love the neon colours over the background stamp. Thanks for sharing this cool idea!
