Impression Obsession new release stamps!

It's been a while since I've posted. It's been even longer since I created any cards! Summertime gardening and grandparenting ave taken the front seat for me, so it's been delightful to play again in my happy room! I'm LOVING these newly released Impression Obsession stamps!

This card was done with the large Damask Snowflake, which can be found here on the IO website. This stamp is also available in a smaller version. I've used that one to create Christmas hanging ornaments. I'll post those another time. The border was done with Martha Stewart's Lace Doily edge punch.




This card's done with the Winter Wonderland Tree stamp, a Leigh Hannan design. After stamping ang gold embossing, I sewed some seed beads onto a few of the snowflakes. You can find this gorgeous stamp here.


This card was done with the Poinsettia and Holly stamp, found here. I stamped and embossed on cardstock, then stamped and embossed again, twice, on white vellum. I watercoloured the centres with Tombow markers, then cut and pop-dotted them in the centre. I used the Fiskars Holly border punch for the side.



This card was done using two stamps of different sizes, same design, called the Swirl Tree, using Clearsnap Chalk Inks. The large tree can be found here, and the smaller one here. I stamped the side trees with Clearsnap chalk ink, then gold embossed and pop-dotted the centre tree. I embellished the card with a little swirly
hand stitching and beading at the bottom.


Thanks so much for dropping by today.
