Impression Obsession Fall Designer Blog Hop





Welcome to the Impression Obsession Fall Designer Die Hop!
We have some beautiful new dies 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 dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please).
The more blogs you visit each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!



For my first project, I conjured up some Spooky Cupcakes! I have to admit, I didn't make them myself. I had EVERY intention to, but you know how that goes sometimes! When I saw the Halloween Cutout Circle Dies I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Besides, it was a great excuse to eat cupcakes!!!!!

To make these, I ran the die cuts through the Vagabond and then cut them with a 13/8" circle punch. I cut glitter paper to go in behind the black cutouts and black paper to go behind the glitter cutouts. Then I punched another circle and sandwiched or is that cupcaked a toothpick in between. I had to do this very very quickly and grab photos before the ghouls and goblins gobbled up the sweet treats!





Last week, I got some amazing Carta Bella  Trick or Treat Halloween Paper from Scrappin' Great Deals. The Paper I used in the next card is the Trick or Treat Paper from the Trick or Treat Collection! This collection is totally RETRO and I may HAVE to purchase a second package as it's Delish!


I also used a smidge of paper from October 31 to create the Chevron Border I added accents with the following dies: The ghost from Boo and the Boo from


Lastly I created this fun Shaker Card using a larger smidge of the October 31st paper as a back drop.


The dies that I used to create the card include"



We will have two days of blog hopping (October 8th & 9th) and THREE prizes!
There will be a prize for each of the two hop days (comment entries open until 10pm CT each day) and a bonus prize will be awarded on the final day of our hop from all the comments left for both days. Comment entries will stay open until Friday at 10PM CT. Winners will be announced the following day. Good luck!
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!
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.
All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!

If you've been hopping already, this is probably the last stop on the hop pop! or ladies (grin)

Because I have a hard time copying link lists, I'm going to direct you over to the IO Blog to get all the links for the hop!

Good luck in the Draw!

  2. First of all - glitter makes everything better! Secondly, I never thought of mixing die cut shapes with the papers intended to be "titles" - I am so going to use that idea! Thank you for sharing!
