Impression Obsession

Celebrating Hollyhocks!

Hi All!

So, the other day, I saw Joanna use the Impression Obsession hollyhocks die on a beautiful card – and knew it was time for me to get the die. I had been coveting it for over a year. And guess what, I couldn’t find it anywhere online….

Yesterday, I went to a craft show and was looking through some dies when I FOUND it. Funny thing was I had completely forgotten about it! Anyway, the added bonus was that it was on sale, so big LucieG smiles all around.

I decided to use it for my entry into this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and cut it from cream card before painting with my Twinkling H2Os. Look at that shimmer.

I also used some Penny Black dies that I have had for AGES and a sentiment from a set by Winnie & Walter.

Thanks for stopping by!

Purrfect Birthday

 

Hi Everyone!

I have the honour of being the GD over at the Case This Sketch challenge. This week was a throwback sketch from a few years ago – before I discovered the challenge! I had LOTS of ideas for this one as it’s wonderful for creating CAS cards, don’t you think?

Anyway, for my card, I used some of my patterned paper mountain plus some cute kitty dies from Impression Obsession and a sentiment from Altenew.

There’s lots of inspiration over at the Case This sketch blog – I hope you can play along!

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (a trio of something).

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along withTracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 9 was Paper Sweeties. I must confess, I have never heard of the brand so spent a good while on their website looking at their fab goodies! I really liked Lisa Bzibziak’s tag using patterned paper and die cuts so I got to work with some of my oldest Basic Grey patterned paper and dies from Impression Obsession and Lawn Fawn. I finished off the tag with a Hero Arts Sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn colour

Hi everyone!

The Color Throwdown challenge has another fabulous colour combination this week – rust, green, orange and aqua! They were such fun to play with and I ended up creating two cards!

I used Impression Obsession’s background fancy leaf stamp with distress inks for both cards. For the first card, I trimmed down the background to fit a card base and simply added a rectangle of vellum and a Memory Box sentiment die. I added a few sequins to finish it off.

For the second card, I embossed a piece of cardstock using a Spellbinders embossing folder. I cut my stamped panel with an Essentials by Ellen die and then added a Concord and 9th sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Believe in Yourself!

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is ‘add a sentiment’ with a focus on Impression Obsession products.

I love Impression Obsessions sentiment stamps – and have quite a few so I wanted to create another entry for the challenge!

For this card, I created an ink blended background with my distress inks. I then added some Hero Arts die cut butterflies that I had left over from this card that I made last week. Finally I added a fabulous Impression Obsession sentiment to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!

All together

Happy Saturday!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is ‘add a sentiment’ with a focus on Impression Obsession products.

I love Impression Obsessions sentiment stamps – so many of them make me chuckle and this one seems very apt for me at time… hopefully you can relate!!!

Anyway, I added it to a background I had created ealier this week when trying out my new Tonic Studios Nuvo Glimmer Paste with a Dylusions stencil. Love these pastes! Although the pink is a quite bright for me in real life!

Thanks for stopping by!
