Impression Obsession Spring Die Release Blog Hop day two


Good Morning!!!!

Hope you all are getting ready for an awesome Easter Weekend.

I love that Spring has finally Spring and wanted to share this card with you.

For this card I used the Hot Air Balloon Die. First I cut it out in sparkly foam, but I wanted some more colour in it, so I cut a second balloon in white and sponged on the following IO Ink Colours:

I used Baby Blue Ink to add some dimension to the cloud dies
Finally, I finished the card off with the Love with Wings sentiment

For my card, I had a great time last Sunday playing with Alcohol inks with my friend Sarah from Scrap of Paradise. I've never used alcohol inks before, but I sure love the results you can get with it on various surfaces. So we played and played and decided to cut our papers out with an egg shaped die.

I was able to pair some of Impression Obsessions fun spring dies and a stamp to create this fun easter confection!

For my first card, I'm sharing this bevvy of bunnies!!!!

I created the scene using the following dies:





I thought I'd shake things up a bit and create this fun St. Patrick's Day themed Birthday card for a friend!

For this card, I used the following:

I made the cauldron from the Alarm Clock die by cutting the top half of the die off
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Layered Twist  stamp set.
I stamped it in Shamrock  ink first, followed by black

The new dies are FABULOUS!!!!!

Make sure you link up your Holiday creation on the IO site

As you can see, I was able to use the negative and positive image in the Love Die. I inked up the pink panel behind the love sentiment to match the ink I used on the Free Spirit Dot Cover a Card.  



These cards were super easy to complete and could be used for a Shower, a Wedding or just to say I love you!!!!
