Impression Obsession Designer Challenge


Good Morning!!!!

Who doesn't love making Holiday Cards??? I know, I sure do
Someone was posting the shopping days until Christmas on Facebook the other day and it made me chuckle! I'm not in THAT much of a hurry for Christmas to come, but I do enjoy getting a head start on my Christmas Cards!!! Soooo I'm hoping this challenge gets you motivated for making your Holiday cards, what ever holiday you celebrate and enjoy!

For my Christmas Card I used the very pretty Vintage Tree cover a card  stamp as my base. I wanted to do the card in a Vintagy sort of way, so I chose to stamp Teal Ink onto some Soft Sky cardstock.
Keeping this theme in mind, I chose Snowman Wreath for my main image. I stamped the image in Seafoam in order to get lineless coloured look. I LOVE the IO Hybrid Inks because they are perfect for this technique. They don't smudge and dry quickly!!! YUMMY!!!!!

So I coloured the little fellow in Copic Marker, Adding some Signo Gel Pen Snowflakes and highlights! Super fun!!!!

Lastly I added a few little sequins and rather than doing a big sentiment, I stamped the twenty-five
stamp to drive it home! lol.... I am so silly!

Anyhooooo, would love to see your creations.

Happy Holiday Stamping

Impression Obsession Thursday Designer Challenge-Happy Colours


Good Morning!!!! Hope all is well with you and that my Canadian and American friends enjoyed their special holiday this week!!! Today's challenge is happy colours. I couldn't really settle on one colour, so I looked to my collage sheets to find a happy colour combo that caught my eye. 
I used my gel press to make some super fun prints using the Leaf Stamp

IT really was a quick and easy card because I added the sentiment using the Happy Stamp and Happy Die. If you look closely, you can see the shadow I stamped on the background with Periwinkle INkle....oops, I mean Ink! hehe!!!!

Super Quick, Super Fun,,,,,some of my FAVE Colours!

What colours do you love?

Link them up on the IO blog for a chance to win some stamping bucks!!!!

Check out the FABBY DT!!!!

Happy Stamping!!!

Technique Junkies July release hop






Good Morning!!!!! 
Happy Canada Day to all my friends this side of the border and welcome to Technique Junkies Stamps July release blog hop. If you've been hopping already, you've arrived from my dear friend Ceal's blog. I have been on several design teams with Ceal over the years, but just recently met her face to face at a retreat in Texas in May. She is one of the sweetest people I know and I look forward to a time when we can meet again!!!!

This first card was created with the shells from the Seashells set
I stamped the shells in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink
I sponged the shells with IO Hybrid inks in Blush and Pistachio.
I created the bottom panel by stamping the Fun Starfish  background and added a touch of Nuvo Drops in Golden Sunset. Lastly, I used the sentiment from last summers Watermelon Summer set. Although there are two amazing sentiments in this set, I could NOT resist how this little stamp fit so perfectly on the card!!!!

LOVE these shells and I can see myself using them time and time again!





I was SO excited to get this awesome Inside and Out sentiment set!
There are FIVE awesome sentiments....... Sassy , Silly and Sensational~~~

This sentiment spoke to me and I just had to pair it up with this vintage lady called Red Lipstick Day
Super fun!!!!






I have to tell you, I think the sets are completely adorable this month and had fun colouring up this adorable Clam Shell





The little eyes peeping out just make me want to smile!!!!
I watercoloured the background and used the Seagrass set as a backdrop

Lastly, I used Emerald Creek's Baked Texture by Seth Apter in Dirty Sand
for the Ocean Floor!!! Love this chunky Embossing Powder. Every Ocean card needs bubbles and the Nuvo Jewel Drops in Seabreeze

So that's it for now, I'll have some other fun projects to show you later this month.
Don't forget the new release stamps are on sale until the 10th of July and you can use my code to save 10% on any other stamps that aren't new release.



Hope you enjoyed my shares
Now head on over to my Bestie Jeanne's blog, 'cause I know she is going to have some amazing blog candy for you!!!
