Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Day 1



Image may contain: text



The Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Celebration starts today! Each day (July 15th - July 17th ) you can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog  at 6am. Every single blog will have a $25 gift certificate to give away for the event - so the more you comment through our Release Celebration the more chances to win! All comments for all of the event days will be open until Sunday July 19th at midnight  CT. All winner will be announced on Tuesday July 21th.
All of the new stamps and dies are available now! You can find them all HERE.



For my first card, I just had to use this Soft Poinsettia stamp which is quite large. This is a 5x7" card with the image panel being 6.5 x 4.5".   I love poinsettias and you can tell by the number of poinsettia stamps that I have. I also felt like pulling out my regular watercolor panel so I could have some fun. Using my regular sized MISTI, I stamped the image onto Arches 140 lb cold pressed paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Because I used watercolor paper which has a texture, I did have to stamp this a few times. That said, I think this would be really fun to paint on Arches Rough texture paper. The sentiment is from last year's release and is called Holiday Words. Again I used my MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink.



Continuing with my Christmas in July theme for this release day, I decided to use our new Big Bow cling stamp. Using my MISTI, I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock which is great for Copic coloring. I used R32, R35, R37, R39 and R89. I also added color pencil details. I then fussy cut it out leaving a thin white border. To create the background I used Wood Grain background stamp and Versamark Ink for embossing. I used a silver glitter embossing powder to give the main panel more dimension. However, you cannot sadly see the detail. Using a background stamp in this way really gives a card visual interest. I then die cut the Joy die from some silver glitter paper and Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock twice so that I had 3 Joys to stack for dimension. I then added some  sequins but I am not sure which brand. 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store. Head back to the blog for more details and the hop list: HERE.

    1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
