Oooohhh, I LOVE Impression Obsession!

I am so LUCKY to be on Mitra's Impression Obsession design team. Our current DT challenge is to create projects with summery stamps. I had a delightful time with this challenge.

This simple card uses the wonderful Shell Cube stamp with a Cuttlebug background.
The "Hi" stamped on the ribbon is from a set of clear stamps called "Anytime Sentiments."


This card uses the Ocean Crab stamp. I stamped it on acetate, gold-embossed and coloured with Twinkling H2O's. I layered this one on a Cuttlebug background too. The "bubbles" go so well with a sea theme, and
I love all those gorgeous crabby swirls!


This one uses the Gumball stamp, which I think is SO CUTE. I'll be sending this along to a little grandson who lives in Quebec, and who'll be travelling on the train with Grammie (that's me, lol) to spend some lovely lazy summer time beside the ocean in Nova Scotia. I coloured this one with Twinkling H2O's as well. The "Hi" is from the versatile "Anytime Sentiments" set.


This last card shows a photo of one of the beaches my grandsons and I visit here in Nova Scotia, called "White Point Beach." I used one of my favourite sentiment stamps on the photo. Have a look at the pages and pages of FABULOUS nautical and sea themed stamps Impression Obsession carries. They all need me!


Be sure to look at the fabulous work done by other design team members too,
they'll all be posting sometime Friday.

All four cards are lovely. I really liked the use of the cuttlebug background for the first card - thought it worked well and highlighted the stamps beautifully. My favourite would have to be the beach scene - the stamp expresses such a beautiful sentiment. Lorna May
