Celebrating!

Hello, it's an exciting week here as we prepare for the wedding of our firstborn!  One thing I love about the art of cardmaking is that I can tailor my card to the recipient.  My future daughter-in-law loves daisies so I created a unique card for her.  


For a look at the full card and all the details head on over to the My Sweet Petunia Blog!

All About Pie

Hello, this week's Free 4 All Challenge is Sweet Treats.  For my sweet treat, I am going with strawberry pie.  I couldn't resist randomly stamping types of pie from the Pie Sayings set in the background.  I used IO Tan ink for the background counter and pie types.  The pie is made with the Slice of Pie die.  We would love it if you stopped by the challenge and played along!  


Thanks so much for taking a look!

Happy Fall

It's Watercolor Wednesday and we are painting warm gold wreaths this week.  I am going with my first attempt this time as we are very busy at our house preparing for a wedding!  Overall, I love this wreath.  It has a few leaves I am not happy with but the experience was very relaxing.  I can't wait to paint more. After painting my wreath, I used the Mini MISTI to add a sentiment from Fall Sayings by IO.  I find the MISTI to be invaluable when stamping on watercolor paper!

 If you would like to join us stop by the Watercolor Challenge at SCS!

More Than Pie - Favorites Day at Impression Obsession

Hello, it's time for the Impression Obsession Team to share favorites of the month.  I love the new Slice of Pie die and the Pie Sayings set.  The sentiment set does a great job covering everyone's favorite pie and it's easy to make pie when you have the die!

Stencil Joy - Impression Obsession Product Focus

***Affiliate links used when possible at no charge to you!***

This month's Product Focus is Stencils!  Stencils can add a lovely background to a project or take center stage.  Stencils are THE focus of my projects today!

Firstly is the Ornament Branch stencil which includes three ornaments. I carefully covered all the cut-outs not needed.  Then I ink blended each element to create my scene.     


Next is the lovely Layered Dahlia Stencil.  I really enjoyed using this one.  It was a lot of fun adding dimension to a single-layered card with just stencils!  To finish off the card I used the Colorful Sayings stamp and Rounded Rectangle Layers die.


Stop by the Impression Obsession Blog to see all the Product Focus projects!

Changing Seasons - IO September Release & Giveaway Day 2

***Affiliate Links used when possible at no charge to you.  Thank you so much!***

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the IO September Release & Giveaway!   You can find the giveaway details posted below!

I cannot lie, I love coffee cup images so I am in love with Nola's Pumpkin Spice stamp set!  I can even fussy cut the coffee cups, LOL.  If you have read my posts you know, I am not big on fussy cutting. 

I colored the coffee cups and then dug through my background stash.  I was psyched to find the watercolor wash in the perfect colors!   Lastly, I framed the Fall coffee with the Large Frame Die.   


Next, I am switching seasons to Christmas, my favorite!  The new Colorful Seasons Sentiment stamp includes all the seasons plus a few everyday sentiments!   I used the new Winter Fun Paper pack and dies for a fun winter layered look. The dies featured here are, Scalloped Oval Tag


On September 15th & 16th, the Impression Obsession Team is sharing new projects from the September Release!  The new goodies include stamps, dies, stencils, and paper packs!
