Impression Obsession Fall Die Release Blog Hop-Day Three


Hello! Welcome to Day 3, the last day of our fun fall release blog hop.

You probably know the drill by now, but if you don't, here goes:

The hop will run for 3 days (10/24/16 - 10/26/16) with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day at 6am EST. Visit our fabulous IO Design Team’s blogs (only one comment per blog per day please) for a chance to win one of THREE $25 Gift Certificates!
The more designer blogs you visit and leave a comment on the better chance you will have to win!!!

I have a couple of shares for you! That's because the dies are all so yummy and I can't seem to stop creating with them!

My first card is quite simple.

It uses the Sleigh Scene Die as the main focal point. Cut in White, Mounted on foam tape over teal ad with a splash of glitter to add some Pizzazle!!!! Yep Pizzazle is my new word for the day!!!

I wanted a little something behind to ground the main image, so I cut the largest tree from the   Evergreen die set and sponged it up a bit to add a touch of texture

Finally, I used my favourite sentiment from this years latest stamp release



The Wrought Iron Fence Die is definitely worth a second share as I think it's my fave for this release. I had it all spooked out yesterday, but today I wanted a bit of a fairytaleish look. Sooooo I left a full card front in Sky blue and mounted the fence on top, adding a couple of pearl gate handles...(not to be mistaken with pearly gates) Actually this die is rather heavenly and it would look lovely in gold, mounted atop a mass of clouds!!!




For the inside of the card, I added the Tree Window Scene Die

I took the Welcome sentiment from the House Collage Clear Set

Easy Peasy! 

Here's the Blogs to check out today!!'


and of course me, but you are already here!!!

Thanks for all the Love this week.

Knowing my cards make you smile, makes me smile!

  2. I am enamored with IO dies. I love both cards and love the way you have created such simple yet elegant projects. The colors used on the first card are so eye-catching and yet I love the suspense created by the gate fold card. Beautiful work, Vicki! Thank you for sharing your creativity! kReN@afourthlife

  13. Your two cards are lovely. The tree behind the sleigh scene die is really great, it gives plenty dimension to the card. And of course, the "dimension" is the main point of your second card, very clever !
