Summer Fun - IO March Release Celebration & Giveaway

 Welcome to the Impression Obsession March 2022 Release Celebration!

This month the Impression Obsession Release is sizzling with spring and summer goodness!

First, a fun ketchup pun card.  The Ketchup & Mustard die set comes with two bottle dies and two lid rings.  The sentiment is from BBQ Time and the ketchup splat is Paint Splotch 1.  

Next, is a mini slimline featuring the new Grill Utensils die set.  I dabbed a hint of smoke on the background by stamping ink on acetate spritzed with water.  Then I tapped the watery ink onto the cardstock.  I love the technique as it allows more control over where the watery ink lands.  The hotdog is from the Campfire & Frank die set.  The sentiment is from BBQ Time.  Lastly, I made a little border strip from the Tiny Dots background.

Lastly, we need a BBQ Grill for that hot dog, right?  I made my grill into a Green Egg grill. :)  I can't eat items from a BBQ grill so we are not Green Egg people but it was fun to create this card. 

Each day, March 7th & 8th you can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog. We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession $25 gift certificates for the event - so the more you comment through our Release Celebration the more chances to win!

All comments for each of the event days will be open until Tuesday, March 15th at 8pm CT All winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 15h on the Impression Obsession Blog.
