Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Summer Flowers



Good Morning!!!

Today we're featuring summer flowers at IO stamps!!!
I am featuring this gorgeous Cosmo's Die
It really is an elegant die!!!

It includes all the pieces including the leaves!

I mounted the Cosmos onto a background made with the framed chicken wire die
I also used the banner die from the Tag with capped top die and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Introverting set
I can see myself using these cosmo dies over and over and am motivated to make a scrapbook layout with it.

Hope you will share your summer floral creations on the IO Blog

Enjoy your day!!!!

Impression Obsession-Old is new



Good Morning!

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend if you are in Canada. To me, it just feels like another day because quite frankly, every day has been melting into the next. I wonder when it will feel like things are back to normal?

Anyway,  today we are featuring Gary Roberston Digital Stamps

This one is called  Doll Sitting. YOu can also get this image in a rubber stamp

This sweet little image reminds me of the Raggedy Ann dolls that little girls of our generation and before used to have. I painted her with Daniel Smith Watercolour and then embellished with several dies as follows:

the little heart is from Large Love Pie


There are some free digis on the IO site so you can try them out!

Make sure you head over to the IO Blog for a list of the DT members who are showing cards today~

Happy Stamping!

IO designer Challenge-Mom's Rule

Image may contain: possible text that says 'MY MOM IS BETTER THAN YOUR MOM MOM'S RULE LOVE YOU MOM HAVE THE PRETTIEST MOM ON THE PLANET MORESION io роо MOMS RULE!!! MAY 7TH- 19TH CHALLENGE WWW IOSTAMPS.CC'




Good Morning!!!

Mom's do Rule!!!

AT least MINE does!!!! 
At 80 years old, she is one going concern!!!!
I am so blessed to have her in my life and we are actually enjoying quarantining together {well most of the time anyway}.

It will be a quiet Mother's Day this year, but all the same, I will celebrate another year of a Mother's Love.

I created this card especially for her as her Birthstone is Amethyst and purple is one of her favourite colours

I used the full sized Water Lily stamp.
It looks like I may have mistaken one of the petals for the interior of the Lily, but that is okay, I LOVE how it turned out.
I am just embarking into the world of Watercolour. I'm enjoying it more and more with each project I create.

For the sentiment, I cut the letters out of the words in the. Love Words die set/

Old is New at IO Stamps




Good Morning!!!!

Did you know there are some Digital Stamps Available at Impression Obsession?

Now you can also get the same stamps in Rubber.

What I particularly enjoy about Digi Stamps is the fact I can manipulate the size to suit the needs of my project. 

This stamp is called  Cactus Mailbox
The digital image is found HERE

I sized the digi to fit a 4.25 x 5.5 inch cardfront. 
The Rubber stamp is significantly smaller than that but sooo pretty

I printed this on Cold Press Watercolour paper and loosely painted it.

Be sure to check out the new Digi Stamps on the Website

There are some free stamps from the Gary Robertson Collection as well as from Nola Chandler and Lindsay Ostrom, so be sure to check them out!!

While you're at it, Check out the IO blog to see who else is sharing samples today

Have an AMAZING day!!!!
