So the Impression Obsession designers are engaged in a blog challenge today; hope you'll visit all their blogs (on my sidebar) to see the fabulous things they're doing! The challenge is wreaths. Here's mine. I used one of the BIG BOLD "Cover a card" background stamps that I stamped with one of the new Impression Obsession Mega Mounts. These background stamps are humungous! When you mount them on the mega mount, there's a lovely little curve on the mount that lets you just sort of "rock" your image right onto your cardstock...SOOOO easy to use!! So, here are some pics for you. The first one is my card, the others will (I hope) let you see the mounts. I used the Cover a Card Tapestry stamp on acetate, thermal embossed with Seafoam White EP (Ranger). The cover-a-card stamps are HUGE, at 5 3/4 " square, and they really DO cover a card! (lol) I used this IO sentiment too. I punched several differant green cardstock scraps with a Martha Stewart punch, and mounted them on a Spellbinders Nestability circle punched piece of cardstock.
If you'd like to include your OWN wreath card in the challenge, go on over to the Impression Obsession blog...if you use only IO stamps on your wreath creation, you could win a $25.00 gift certificate!
This next card is for the Wednesday Stamper challenge, which is Asian this week. I used an OnyxXpressions panda stamp over a hand stitched and beaded design, with an OnyxXpressions sentiment stamp on the left. I really enjoy finding new ways to combine stitching and stamping! I'm posting a close-up of the beading too. It's such FUN to do!
