Impression Obsession Fall Die Blog Hop-day three


Good Morning!

Now we've come to the final day of the Blog Hop

I'm hopping from Halloween to Christmas today to feature the Beary Christmas Die Set that accompanies the Beary Christmas Stamps. These sets accessorize with the Beary Sweet Stamps and Dies. I knew these sets would look awesome in front of the Fireplace Die. I coloured all of the images with Copic Marker, using some Sparkle Fluff on the white fluffy areas. I completed the card 
using the Ho Ho Ho Die sentiment.

I sure hope you've enjoyed all of your "Hop Stops"

Be sure to comment on the blogs for a chance to win one of four Gift Certificates. For all the deets, visit the  IO BLOG


Here's who is on the Hop List for today

Impression Obsession Fall Blog Hop day two


Good Morning and welcome to day two of the IO stamps Fall Die Blog Hop.
I have to apologize as yesterday's cards didn't publish in the morning as scheduled, so for those of you that posted sweet comments on my witch card, you might want to go back and redo comments for the draw.....today's Halloween day for me AND a lot of you know how much I LOVE making Halloween cards!!!

My first share is made with the Pumpkin Cup Dies and of course the matching stamp set
I coloured this festive little fellow in Copic Markers as well as the Cinnamon Sticks, Marshmallow topping and Candy corn! Such a sweet set!!!! I used the Paint Splatter  stamp with Canary Yellow Ink to ground my little Pumpikin!!!! Yep, that's no typo, 'cause that's no Pumpkin, it's a Pumpikin because it's just way too cute!!!!


Now put your sunglasses on for this one!!!! It's a bedazzling wonder.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Halloween Silhouette Die. It's called Halloween Scene. Super cute on it's own and fun on top of the Purple Glitter. Pairing it with the Bat with Sign. Just takes it clean over the top!!! What do you think of those googly eyes?

Now be sure to visit all the blogs and leave some love because there will be FOUR winners chosen over the three days of the hop.

IO Stamps Thursday Designer Challenge: Harvest Hellos


Ahhhhh it's that time again.....well almost. Sweater Weather, Crisp Autumn Leaves and of course the time of year when I can make my favourite kind of card, Halloween Cards!!!!!!

I made this car using the delicious new Witch Line Die. How fun is this?? I cut the die out four times so that I was able to get a variety of colours. I coloured the spider web and line with Silver Metallic Pen. Lastly, I punched a 13/4" circle in yellow so that this stylish witch was flying up against the moon. Super easy, but I LOVEEEEE it!!!!!

Be sure to enter your Harvest Cards on the IO Blog

Here's todays Hop list


Happy Stamping!!!

All of the new stamps are fabulous, but I'm partial to the two sets I'm going to share today!!!!

The first  set is called Happiness is Homemade




For this card, I watercoloured the image with My Zig Clean Brush markers onto a shipping tag!

This set is perfect for homemade gift giving. There are three images in the set, plus the sentiment! A great value!





I coloured this image with my . Chameleon Color Tone Pencils. I really like how I was able to gete the variances in colour in the apple. The sentiment (and if you look closely at the card base) and leaves come from the Autumn Set



This is a super fun stamp called Star Collage. I must have been in the mood for shipping tag art and I paired it with a sentiment from Sentimental Sayings



Here's a more masculine version!!!!

The sentiment is the "Dad'" portion from the Hat's off to Dad set!!!

I will have a lot of fun shares for you this month!!!!

Be sure to hop over to the very very talented Giovanna's bloghttps://giovana-believe.blogspot.ca/2017/09/technique-junkies-september-release.html to see what she has in store for you!!!!

Vera Lane Studio Sunday



Good Morning!!! 

Today is my last Sunday as a Guest Designer over at Vera Lane Digital Stamps

My first card I'm featuring is The Traveller

I coloured her up with my Copic and Touch Markers

I layered all the elements onto some Designer Paper from the Authentique Pastime Collection



This Delicious Cupcake image can be found in the Cupcake Set

The beauty of a digital image is that you can make it any size you want.

Thus this giant yummy confection!!!!!

Again, I coloured the image with Copic Markers

The little sprinkles are from the Dollar Store!

Hope you enjoy!

Happy Stamping!!
