Impression Obsession Winter Sneak Peek Blog Hop-Day 1







Welcome to the 2015 Impression Obsession Spring/CHA Release Blog Hop!
We have some beautiful new stamps to share AND Gift Certificates to give away!
 The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit here and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). Comment as you hop. Each comment that you leave gives you a chance to win!!!
The more blogs you visit each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!

For my first card above, My central focus is this wonderful quote from the very Inspiration Maya Angelou. The Good Lord called this phenomenal woman home last year, however her spirit and words will impact upon people, particularly women for years to come.
The bright back ground is created with the Paint Splatter stamp

Here are the links to both:



For my second share, I kept it clean and simple

I stamped the image in two different colours (Cherry Cobbler and Melon Mambo) for some variation


You can get both the image and the sentiment, along with some other sweet stamps in this cute set!



Every day (Monday Jan 5th – Jan 9th), one of the IO designer blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participat ing blogs for that day.
Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop!
One winner will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. Both winners will be announced on Saturday January 10th.
So….if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!
Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday, January 10th.

  1. Vicki, I like both of your cards very much, each one for a different reason. I think I like the first the best just simply because of the sentiment. Great job and I'm looking forward to see everyone's creations this week.
