Spooky!!! Impression Obsession Die Hop!




I can't BELIEVE that Summers over! The Kiddies are back to school today and I felt a bit of a chill in the air today.....well a big chill in some parts of Kingston, but that's another story!

The next three days is going to be fun fun fun!!!!

Impression Obsession is having a Die Hop to showcase all of the fun new dies they just released this summer!!!

If you've been hopping already, you've just arrived from the super talented Laura Fulcher's Blog

If you haven't been hopping, Head on over to the Impression Obsession Blog to get started!

You can also get all the details and rules for the hop there

Be sure to leave a comment as one lucky winner who comments on all the blogs will win their choice of 3 dies each day! How cool is that......THREE DIE SETS!!!!

That's just what I used to create this Spooky Halloween Confection!!!!

Bare Tree Die. Yep I lurve the Bare Nekkid Tree Die!!!

The Sentiment Hails from the Sentiments 2 set, which is currently out of stock, but I'm sure it will be back in soon!!!

And for my card, I used the Sponge and Spritz Technique.

Essentially, you sponge all the colours that you want in the background onto light coloured cardstock. Once you've done that, you just take a spray bottle and give it a little spritz. I used a circle punch to mask out the moon and then inked the yellow in after. I overlapped it onto the skyline a bit to give the Halo look (well actually, I didn't really, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!).

I used a little glitter on the ghosts and windows to give a little zip and zing and some black stickles on the bats wings for some additional dimension!

Hope you love the hop and come back tomorrow to visit again!

Have a wonderful day!

  5. It's hard to believe it's time to start thinking about Halloween and Impression Obsession has the perfect dies to do that with as you have shown in your cute card. I love the cat. He looks like he's calmly watching all the action.
