Impression Obsession Thursday Designer Challenge-Stamp a Background


Good Morning!

Hope you're having an amazing week!

Today's challenge is to stamp your own background.

IO has a new artist in the house and I'm showcasing a few of her stamps today. 

To make the background I stamped the following stamps



I combined 


Now y'all......... hehe, that's funny coming from a Canuck isn't it?

So you all know I love texture....... So added some texture to my card using a couple of yummy embossing powders from Emerald Creek.

The "splotches" are Seth Apters Baked Texture in Deep Sea
I used Allure Fractured Ice in the middle of the flowers

I am LOVING these Embossing Powders.....Thick and Delicious!!!

So if you want all the deets for the prize challenge, head on over to the IO Blog
as well as for a list of the DT ladies that are participating today~

Happy Stamping

Impression Obsession 2018 Summer Release Hop





Welcome to the Impression Obsession 2018 Summer Release Hop!
If you've come from Laura'a blog,  you are in the right place. If not head the the Impression Obsession blog  for the start of the hop

Is it BBQ time yet? We've had a few BBQ's over the winter, but sometimes I darned near lost my toes to frostbite waiting for the meat to be grilled. I think after having an ice storm less than a month ago, we're finally safe!!! I created this fun invitation using the Hamburger Image, which I coloured with Copic Markers. I created the background with the Gingham CAC. I love this huge background stamp and have used it many times over. Finally I finished up with the Let's BBQ sentiment  
Well, since I didn't think I should add glitter to this one, I added some NUVO drops to the seeds on the buns

We have some beautiful new stamps to share AND Gift Certificates to give away! The Blog Hop will be posted on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST May1st – May 3rd.
