Art Impressions & OWH Bloghop - New Stamp Release

Welcome to Art Impressions! We are excited to reveal our two new Operation Write Home (OWH) stamp sets and we're kicking off the launch with an amazing bloghop!


For the last couple months, we have been working closely with Sandy Allnock (president and founder of OWH) to bring this dream to a reality. Operation Write Home is a non-profit organization that (with the help of many volunteer cardmakers) creates blank, handmade cards to send overseas to troops, giving them an opportunity to send something special home to their loved ones. We truly believe in the Operation Write Home cause, as many Ai employees currently have family and friends serving overseas. We are beyond thrilled to bring you these two new sets, designed to create cards for OWH, but also to benefit them with 25% of the proceeds from artimpressions.com donated to their cause!


Time for the big reveal! 

Drumroll please ...

OWH Every Hat set (UM4343)
When creating for OWH, we wanted heartfelt sets that reflected the day-to-day. Our Every Hat set was for the women taking care of it all, a heartfelt thank you for doing the job of two. We love our lady wearing all the hats!

OWH Sending Love set (UM4343)
With our Sending Love set, we thought of how wonderful it is for families and friends to hear from one another, and even more than ever before with the use of technology. Whether it is by letter, email, phone or possibly a video chat, love knows no distance! We hope so much love is sent home with this stamp set!

We hope you've enjoyed our big reveal! You can purchase these stamps online here and they will be available soon at local retailers near you!
