 Welcome to the Impression Obsession Summer Die Release Celebration!

The Impression Obsession Summer Die Release Celebration happens today! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6AM. There will be THREE $25 gift certificates to give away for the event chosen at random from the comments on all of the Design Team blogs.  The more you comment through our Release Celebration the more chances to win! All comments for the Summer Release Celebration will be open until Monday, June 8th at noon CT. All winners will be announced on June 9th.

All of the new dies are available now! You can find them all HERE 

First up is this fun card for dad!  Oh, how I love this Scenic Hiker!  Such a gorgeous scene.  I popped all the large pieces out and colored them.  I die cut a plain white circle and placed the silhouette on top of the circle so I could see where to sponge color behind the trees.  Next, I adhered the silhouette onto the plain white circle.  After that, it was easy to add the larger pieces of back into the scene.  Lastly, I added DAD for my sentiment.  A selection of stamps and dies for guys are currently on sale through the 6/7!

Next up is a super fun summer card!  I adore the new Stitched Speech Border!  The borders add extra fun to paper projects!  I stamped a sentiment from Beach Mode and layered the borders. Lastly, I created the super fun watermelon.  Now it's time to celebrate summer!
