Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Happy Hellos


I'm going to keep my post short and sweet today as I've been crazy busy since my Father passed. It was actually really nice to take a break from the seemingly unending tasks to create!

I absolutely love this coffee cup image! It's an older image, but I've used it several times. It's called Striped Hello Mug

I stamped it in Melon Mambo and then coloured in the bare stripes with Copic Markers- Sand, Leather and Copper

I coupled this with a new set called "Hello". You can also purchase  the coordinating die. I stamped the Hello sentiment in Espresso to create a shadow, layering the Melon Die cut over the top!

I sure hope you like this cheery card!

Please head over to the IO website to get the links to the designer blog and also to enter your card for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate!

Happy Stamping!

Playing with Chameleon Pens

The Impression Obsession Designers had the opportunity to participate in a Product Swap with Chameleon Pens. I chose the  Chameleon Pens Pastel Tones Set to experiment with.

They were fun to use! It was interesting for sure working from light to dark~!

For my card, I used the following Impression Obsession Supplies

Be sure to Check out Jenny's Blog to see what she created!

As well, see the Chameleon Blog as I do believe there may be a Giveaway

Happy Stamping!

Until we meet again

Born July 2nd 1935
Left us on April 4th, 2016

Forever in our Hearts

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight. 

I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, 

I am not there; I did not die.
