Designers' challenge

The Impression Obsession designers' challenge is to create cards suitable for men...always a challenge for me! This first card uses this swirl background stamp which I white-embossed on my origami tie, and the "Just for You" stamp from the "Anytime Sentiments" set.

This second card uses a sentiment stamp from the Cupcake set (MC 181), coupled with a diecut arch and silhouette I did with the Silhouette SD electronic cutter. The Dad's wings meet the Gothic Arch challenge for this week, and the buttons meet the Craft Challenge over at Charisma Cardz.

Several other Impression Obsessioon designers are posting their challenge cards today, so I hope you can take some time to blog-hop a little. The links to their blogs are on my right hand sidebar. Who else is participating? Daniela, Dina, Laura, Jeanne, Jenny and Shirley!

Would you like to see your own artsy work featured on the Impression Obsession blog? We'd love it! Please send Impression Obsession stamped creations along to our IO blog mistress here.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is delightful!

Hi, Deborah! Love the tie card! Your tie looks so three dimensionally real I'd swear it was silk, not paper! Excellent! :-)
