Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge- Fanciful Florals


Hello! Hope you're having a great week! This week's Designer Challenge is called Fanciful Florals!

I bet you're wondering what the HECK my card has to do with that?? Well.....take note of the Flower on Beatrice Bun Bun's headband?.. Yep, that's one FABULOUS Flower!!!

Actually, it was my intent to create a flowery card this week, but I have been busy trying to get things ready for my Father's upcoming Celebration of Life. I intended to share this card earlier in the week in the blog hop, but I hadn't figured out quite how I wanted to embellish it, so I'm thankful that it has one Fanciful Flower on it!!! I actually really like this sweet image!!!!

I also really like the & Many More stamp by Kallani. I love the way she designs her graphics!!!
I coupled it with the "Happy"  clear stamp!

I coloured Beatrice with my Chameleon Pens that I received in the Product Swap last month! Pretty Cool eh?  Lastly I had to add just a touch of Dollar store Bling Bling to finish it off~~~

I hope you'll upload your flowery creation on the link on the IO Blog

While you're there, check out the links to today's players~

Happy Stamping

For my card, I used  the Timeless Classic clear set by DK Designs. I watercoloured the truck image with Distress and Stampin' Up! ink, along with a water brush. To add a little extra dimension to the card, I stamped the Gears stamp on the corrugated cardboard paper and along the bottom, stamping off to get less Colour. I had a fun printed paper bag that I cut for the background, along with a smidgen of a patterned paper that I created with some Diane Reavely Acrylic Paint. Lastly I added some metal gears to up the manly factor!
I'm sure my Dad would have loved this card!

Impression Obsession Summer Blog Hop!


Welcome to Impression Obsession Stamps Summer Blog Hop!

I can't wait for you to see all the completely and totally adorable stamps that Mitra has recently released and can be found under "New Products" on the IO website!

For my fun summer card, I chose to use some fun stamps by Lindsay Ostrom

Water Waves, Wanda, the big guy Wally and the Everything's Better in the SUn sentiment.

Of course I couldn't make a card without adding at least a couple of dies!


I finished off the card by colouring the whales with my Touch Markers in the Blue Grey Series and finished off the card by adding some stickles~

The Blog hop will last for two days. Be sure you comment on all of the blogs as one 25.00 Gift certificate will be awarded today and tomorrow and will be chosen from one of the Design Team blog

Please visit the Impression Obsession Blog for a direct link to all of the players

Happy Stamping!

Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Happy Hellos


Hello!

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.
