Impression Obsession Sneak Peeks!


Mitra has some FABULOUS new stamps being offered for the first time at CHA this summer! Have a look at the inspiration from the other designers...wicked awesome eye candy! You can find their links on my sidebar.

Be sure to visit them all...leaving comments will enter you to win a $25 IO gift certificate. You can find more information about that on the Impression Obsession blog.

For this card, I stamped the beautiful new music background stamp, then cut the reindeer with a Tim Holtz die. The new sentiment stamp was cut with a Spellbinders die.


All the new IO images are in the catalogue supplement right here.

Also, you have a chance to submit your own work for a chance to win another $25 IO gift certificate. On July 21st, Shirley will be posting contest information on the Impression Obsession blog. As a heads up, the theme will be to make a card using only Impression Obsession stamps (in case you want to get started now).

I wondered how you did those deer. Don't think I'd seen those Tim Holtz reindeer. Very attractive card!

I love that you cut the reindeer from this stamped pattern. Great idea.

Love how you did this card-using the stamp to create the patterned paper for the negative image. Very cool! Might have to try this :-)

I LOVE that you cut those reindeer out of sheet music... what a neat look! I love it! This is a gorgeous card, and dreams of winter definitely do help beat the heat.

I am so glad you came and played along with us at the Order of the Opus Gluei!

Enjoy the rest of your week, and hope you aren't in the heat wave zone!!!
