IO Die Cut Day - Tags and Ovals

It's Die Cut Day at Impression Obsession!  

I used the sweet new Butterfly & Scallop Frame (without the butterfly) to highlight the Bunny Heart stamp.  The I Heart Bunnies background stamp is so much fun to use.  Some of the bunny hearts could be colored in or simply inked as I have done here.  Lastly, I added a sentiment from the Follow the Bunny stamp set.  


Next up I had fun with die cuts and a small sentiment stamp.  I have a collection of backgrounds stamped with the Tooled Leather background stamp so I chose one and die cut it with the Stitched Tag.  I layered it on a piece die-cut from the Fish Net die.  I added another layer with the Crazy Stitched Set.  The little sentiment is But What If and would be a super cute stamp to use in a planner or journal!

The Love of a Boy

Hello!  It's my turn to host the F4All Challenge at Splitcoaststampers and we decided it was time to celebrate the boys!  I chose this adorable boy from the Love Girls clear set.  One of the fun things about a clear set is the ability to manipulate it just a bit.  I slightly placed a cut in the solid plastic between the hearts in the rainbow.  This allowed the stamp to be stretched apart just enough for the hearts to around the boy's head instead of directly above it.  

As always we would love for you to join us over at Splitcoaststampers, a FREE online community for paper crafters!

IO Team Favorites Hop & Giveaway - My Favorite Treats

It's time to HOP the Team Favorites for February!

My favorite cards this month just so happen to feature my favorite treats, chocolate and ice cream!

First off one of my favorites features the Chocolate Lovers set.  I layered the sweet candy treat on a medallion from the 1 1/2 In Circle set, the Doilies Die, and the Tag with Lace.  The background layer was made by stamping the Tiny Vines in Sweet Petunia Pink ink.  


I love ice cream so this was a fun one for me.  Once again, I made my own patterned paper.  I stamped the Tiny Squares on a distress ink layer and die cut it with the Cloud Border die.  The sentiment is More than Ice Cream.  



The Impression Obsession Designers are sharing their favorite projects from this month’s release today!
We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession Grab Bags - so the more you comment through our Favorites Hop the more chances to win! Comments will be open until Monday, January 24th at midnight CT. All winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 25th on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Disguises

Hello, it's Watercolor Wednesday, and this week we are starting where we left off.  We are learning how to use compound strokes.  You can find out all the details HERE.  I used the Mini MISTI to add the New Beginnings IO sentiment stamp on the watercolor paper.  

I wish this sentiment wasn't true, however, sometimes we do have to go through painful endings to get to the new.  


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that all is well with you!

IO Theme Day - Flowers for a Sweet Friend

T is for Tulips and T-Ruler

Hello!  Today, I am up on the My Sweet Petunia blog with the new Pixel Tulip stamp and the brand new MIS-T Ruler.  


The new MIS-T Ruler is a great add-on to your MISTI tool collection!  The ruler fits easily into the original size MISTI.  I placed my card along a grid line and I placed the ruler up against two sides of the MISTI.    Next, I placed the word die along the ruler edge for perfect alignment!  


Well, you know what I always say, If I have a stamp in the MISTI why not make more than one card!  I changed the color combo for the next card and added a stamped sentiment from Impression Obsession.



Wishing you a healthy and safe day!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Love. That is All.

Hello!  It's Watercolor Wednesday at SCS!  We are using brush strokes to make circle art this week.  I have several practice sheets but I didn't know what I wanted to do with them until I thought of the brand new LOVE stamp from IO.  It's new in the January release.  If you haven't hopped our release you can start on DAY 1 and then continue to DAY 2 for a chance to win a prize.  :)  

So I stamped Love umpteen times using my MISTI - don't try this without one.  Haha!  This 100% Cotton paper is so textured that in the end, I had to darken the lines with a marker.  Then I painted circles.  It was so fun to watch the paint invade the space next to it!  


You can find all of the IO January Release HERE.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  
Love and Hugs!

IO January Release Day 2 - For Mom

Hello!  I hope you enjoyed Day 1 of the IO January Release, now onto Day 2! Check below for all the details and a full list of DT Members!

For my first card, I used the Mother's Day Sayings stamp set and created a corner wreath!  There are endless possibilities to this set!  


Next, up is a fun joke card! It's a good thing that my sibs don't read my blog they might take offense!  Haha!  Here is what I used:


And lastly, how about a head start on Easter cards?  I had a lot of fun with this one!
I inked the Tiny Squares background stamp in different colors of Distress ink and spritzed the stamp with water.  After that the card sort of made itself!  :) The bunny and sentiment are from the Follow the Bunny set.  The oval is part of a beautiful die set, Butterly & Scallop.
