Old is new at IO stamps

Good Morning

Today we're sharing some older stamps here at Impression Obsession.

I had a little OOPS when making my card, but my oops was a good opportunity to make another card.

I created the background for both cards using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Ink
The rich and creamy ink allows for awesome blending. The Oops came when creating my background for the bear card. I used one of our new Slimline Stamps to attempt to create a shoreline for the bear skating along the lake. By Mistake, I stamped the tree line at the bottom of the card, leaving the white space in the middle. It was quite large, so I just went in with more ink and left enough white space to resemble clouds

I really love the look of the second card with the Irish Christmas Blessing Stamp

For the Tree Lines, I used the Treeline Hillside Duo

I used the adorable Let it Snow stamp set for the bear card, using the bear of course, the sentiment and the larger snow drops

Impression Obsession Slimline Stamps Hop; Let's do it again !!!!!

Good Morning!!!

Here we are again showcasing some of the new slimline dies from Impression Obsession

For this card, I created a wintery sky with some distress oxide ink and then just stamped the tree line from the Tree Line Layers set
I had originally planned to put more elements, but I loved how the ink peeked out under the stamped tree line to resemble shadows on ice. At that moment, I decided to add an silver  embossed sentiment and some glitter to the night sky.

I wanted to come up with something on Kraft Coloured Cardstock, so after experimenting a bit, I ended up with this simple card as well and I like it!!!! I combined the following stamps to create the card

Don't forget to leave some love on all the blogs for the opportunity to win a gift certificate

You're a Hoot-Impression Obsession Designer Challenge

Hooooot Hoooooooooooot Hooooooooot WHO?

Why it's an Owl or any of his feathered friends challenge!!!!

I had a ball creating this night background with distressoxide inks, water and a little liquid stardust!!!!

I coloured my nocturnal friend in warm greys and violets and fussy cut him and the tree branches out

Lastly I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink and embossed in what I thought was white powder , but clearly turned out to be more of a glittery startdust, thus the weak looking sentiment

That being said, I am sure the recipient will enjoy it, as they love owls!!!

All the stamps can be found in the Who Loves You set by Nola Chandler
