So the Impression Obsession designers are creating with pink and orange today...who KNEW these colours went together!? Not me! (lol) I used one of the brand new stamps (coffee perk) in my first card, along with one of my very favourite Impression Obsession background stamps (Leigh Hannan's Swirl Background L2025) The coffee perk is so new, it's not even on the website yet, but the stock number is 2287 if you find it really *needs* you! I added lots of glitter to the coffee pot, and yes, that's a real coffee bean on the cup, so the card even SMELLS good! (lol) I saw this particular gatefold design just yesterday on Suzanne's blog, and knew I had to try it, so thanks for the inspiration Suzanne! I added a Cuttlebug embossed acetate butterfly, outlined with gold leafing ink, to fit with this week's Cuttlebug challenge. The glitter and gold fit well with this week's Wednesday Stamper challenge, which is "shiny!" The Cute Card Thursday challenge is "signs of spring," and although coffee itself doesn't qualify (lol), I thought these vivid colours would fit well for that challenge.
I made this next card to go with the first one. Although this isn't one of the new releases, it IS one of my tried and true stamps, the Latte coffee cup. I LOVE using this one! It takes colour and glitz beautifully. After I stamped the Happy Birthday, I mounted it on a gold mirrored piece cut with my trusty scalloped Nesties.
The other Impression Obsession artistes will be posting fun new creations today too, so I hope you can take a few minutes to blog hop. You can link to their blogs are from the designers' list on the right sidebar of my blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
