Wheels

Hello, It's time for a new Free 4 All Challenge, and we are showing off our wheels this week!  

I am featuring the new Camper Card die set for my first card.  What is fun about this camper is that it's the size of an A2 card, so there is lots of room for writing a greeting inside.  I love that this camper is so versatile, with countless possibilities.  I went with the 4th of July colors for this camper and am thinking about a Christmas camper!  I used the Off Road stamp set for the sentiment and stamped it on a Rounded Rectangle Layer.  The retro wood grain on the trailer is from the Wood Grain Paper Pack.   


For my following "wheels," I went with the fantastic Off Road Die.  It's super easy to pop out the pieces to create the design.  I again went with a sentiment from the Off Road sentiment set and used the Crazy Stitched Set for the background.   


Thanks for stopping by!  If you enjoy playing in card challenges, we would love to have you at Splitcoaststampers!

Summer Fun - June IO Team Favorites

Hello, it's time for June IO Team Favorites!

I love the IO Cupcake Toppers.  They are perfectly sized for the Cupcake but can also be used alone! There are now four cupcake topper sets, Baby, Seasonal, Spring, and Summer! I used the Summer Cupcake Topper with the Cupcake on this card.   The Crab Sayings sentiment set is a fun set with 14 punny sentiments!  I arranged the cupcake on a pink Crazy Stitched Set layer. 



Stop by the Impression Obsession Blog to see the Team's Favorites for June!

Play Hard - IO Theme Day


Hello, and welcome to IO Theme Day!  We are headed outdoors for this Theme Day!

I love the Large Hiking Boots; the Small Hiking Boots are just as much fun!  So often, when I see a hiking boot-themed project, it looks very masculine, so for several of my projects this month, I created a look that appealed to me!  That's the joy of being a maker; we can tailor our projects any way we like!  :)

Let's Shell-A-Brate IO June Release Day 2

Hello! Welcome to day two of the IO June Release!

I hope you enjoyed day one of the IO Release, and now we are ready for day two!  
My first card features the Summer Cupcake Toppers. The Cupcake toppers are so cute and coordinate with the IO Cupcake Die, but they are also fabulous as the main attraction. This will go to my sister, as the sentiment includes her name!  :) The sentiment is from Crab Sayings

Next, Nola's new Hello Sunshine set makes a sunny, cheerful paper hug. I also used a paper from the Basics 1 Yellows paper pack.  


Lastly, the new Camper Card Die set offers loads of possibilities. I used colors that I would LOVE in IRL. However, my husband would not go for it. LOL! And that is the beauty of paper crafting. We can do whatever we want!  The floral paper is from the Tiny Flowers Paper Pack.  I used a Rounded Rectangle Sentiment banner for the sentiment, which is included in the Outdoor Adventures Stamp set.  


For a look at all the NEW at the IO shop, HERE.


June 15th & 16th The Impression Obsession Team will share projects with the NEW clear stamps and dies! You can find a daily list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog through the event.

Adventure Awaits the June IO Release!

Welcome to the June Release Hop!

Hello! I have been so excited waiting for the June Impression Obsession Release! I had so much fun playing with color and the new Release items. 

First, I used the new Large Hiking Boot and the Outdoor Adventure stamp set! I masked a circle and used distress inks to create the impression of the sun. The Hiking boot is a dream to put together! I would love a pair of hiking boots with Fuschia detailing!  


Here is another look at the Large Hiking Boot! It makes a fabulous tag. I cut two boots and added a hole punch at the boot top. I tied them together with twine so that the boot could stand on its own, but also, there was space inside to write a short greeting.  


Next, I made a sunny yellow card with Summertime Sayings.  I stamped the sun with Canary Yellow Ink. The Cloud Border adds a fun touch to this summer card with Basics Yellow paper as the card base.


Take a look at ALL the NEW products HERE.

Wish Big - Product Focus - CAC

Hello! This month the IO Product Focus is Cover-A-Card.  

**Affiliate links were used at no charge to you!  Thank you!**

Impression Obsession has a fantastic array of Cover-a-Card red rubber stamps. I love that IO's background stamps are red rubber, so every part of the image stamps crisp and clean! The Tiny Stars, Cover-a-Card stamp is so fun to use. I love those tiny stars! I was going for birthday happiness for this card, so I used various bright ink colors. I made the WISH from the versatile Block Alphabet Die Set and stamped the word BIG from the heartfelt Happy Birthday sentiment set. The stars were cut from one of my most used dies, the Crazy Stitched set. To add more presence to the word WISH, I used one of the layers from the Crazy Stitched Die Set behind it.  


The Tiny Stars CAC also looks splendid all in one color as I did for the grad card I posted in May


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stop by the Impression Obsession Blog for a look at the Team's Cover-a-Card Background projects!

Impression Obsession has a lovely assortment of Cover-a-Card red rubber stamps in the store.  You can find them HERE.

Merry Christmas Presents - Christmas in June Kit Release

Greetings and welcome to the June Limited Release Rubber Set Hop, day 2!

For Day 2, my focus is the sweet little package included in the June Red Rubber SetI die-cut the charming, Whimsical Round Windows and popped them out of the cardstock.  Then I stamped directly on the die cuts. I love black & white images with a pop of red, so that is what I went with on these adorable mini gifts. 

I had so much fun creating with the June Red Rubber Set! If you photograph your Impression Obsession creations, we would love to see them on the Impression Obsession Fans Facebook Page!

Holly Jolly Santa - June IO Kit Release

Greetings and welcome to the June Limited Release Rubber Set Hop!

I am thrilled to present this month's set, which is Christmas themed.   As a Christmas card-making enthusiast, I find this set a pure joy to work with!

I created an impactful Santa-themed card for my first project by layering markers from light to dark. The image depicts Santa going down a chimney, and I added a rooftop using a black pen. I ink-blended the night sky to complete the look and added a touch of snow using a white pen.

Remember to check out the June Red Rubber Set and Oval Labels!


I layered this handsome Santa on a Wacky Stitched CircleSome Santa heads are too large for my liking, but this one is just right! I centered the Ho Ho Ho sentiment that is included in the set on a banner from the Stitched Slimine Layers die set.
