Clear Art Stamps had some great samples using their acrylic stamps. I like the vintage look (no big secret) but I'm not a big fan of acrylic stamps. The make n takes at CHA were o.k. and fun to do when you needed to sit down, but I was more impressed by the design team creations. When I first saw Clear Art Stamps new releases online before CHA I wasn't impressed at all. When I saw them at the show beside their samples, it was a whole different reaction.
Graphic 45 (another vintage look company) had some amazing projects in their booth too. They really inspired most of my upcoming class projects. I have about four pages of new ideas in my creative journal. Now I just have to sit down and get the samples done. :)
