Impression Obsession Design Team Feature

Sometimes one needs that extra special card for an extra special someone. You know, those people who save your cards or leave them up because they enjoy them so much?
That is this card!!!! 

I really enjoyed creating this card and really, it wasn't all that difficult!!!

It's hard to see, but the trees and the antlers on the deer are all embossed in gold. I thnk the gold ribbon and the glass glitter are stealing the show here!!!!

The two dies I used for this shaker card project are

Hope you enjoyed my project!!!!

If you haven't looked already, we have been featuring the winter release for the last three days

Impression Obsession Winter Hugs Release day 3

Good Morning!

Sorry I'm a little slow on the uptake today, it's been a crazy crazy week!

Today I'm showcasing a gorgeous sentiment

 I made these pressed leave backgrounds last summer and I pull them out occasionally to use them

I really love the way they turned out.

IO has some amazing large sentiments that will fill a card front and How Wonderful is one of them!

Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Quick Christmas Cards

Good Morning!!!

This week's challenge at IMpression Obsession Stamps was to make some quick Christmas Cards
I am a little behind finishing my cards, so I thought this challenge was a great way to get a few done quickly.

I started by stamping a back ground on a 12x12 sheet of Craft Cardstock with the  VIntage Tree Cover a Card Stamp. Then I began to add die elements to dress up the card.

Merry Christmas Die and one of the Tree's from the Peace Frame Die

I added a little Nellies effect snow to the cards to give them just a touch more dimension.
The sparkles you see are made with Tulip Beads in a Bottle-Fools Gold

IO Thursday Designer Challente-Autumn Colours

Good Morning!!!!!

We have a new Challenge up at IO Stamps today!!!!

We'd love to see your Fall colour creations!!!!!

I made this sweet wreath with the  Patchwork Leaves die.
All I did is distress the edges with Vintage Photo Ink

Once the wreath was created, I cut the sentiment with the  Give Thanks die twice. Once in Mustard and once in brown to give it a shadow effect.
I layered it all over a background I had created with my Gel Press plate and the  Distressed Flower

Lastly, I added some gold drops here and there with my Daler Rowny Gold Acrylic Ink

Make sure you upload your creations on the IO Blog and visit to get the links to the other  designers who are playing in the challenge today!

Good Morning!!! 

What a beautiful Clear and cool day here in Kingston. I actually had to don my toque when I took Sydney for a little walk. 

I wanted to share this card I made with a few Stencils from a Colourful Life

I used a combination of Stencils as listed below and a few different techniques
I think this warrants a Video and will get onto that soon!!!

I used the following dies.

I must be in the mood for Pink Coloured Christmas Cards this year!!!!

I used a combination of Pan Pastels and Distress ink on this card!!!!

Gotta Run 'Cause I have tons to do today, but I will try to get onto doing a video this week
