Impression Obsession Sneak Peek

I always get so excited when Impression Obsession comes out with new images. I especially get excited when Leigh Hannan has new Halloween stamps. When I first saw the Jack O'Lantern hot air balloon, I knew I had to have it. I have actually seen a pumpkin hot air balloon at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, so the image is a bit nostalgic for me. Of course, that balloon doesn't have the cute face or candy corn flags.

To make the card, I stamped the balloon onto white cardstock using black Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. I then masked the envelope and basket (sorry, I had to break out my hot air balloon terms..it is a New Mexico thing) and added some clouds behind using my Rosie's Road Show cloud template, a sponge, and some blue ink. To finish the card, I used my favorite new Cover-A-Card background...houndstooth.

The next card using stamps designed by Alesa Baker:


For this card, I stamped the wine bottle and ribbon images with Memento ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The wine tag was stamped with black Versafine ink and edged with several colors of Distress Inks. I layered everything onto my old Cover-a-Card favorite background...denim.

I hope you check out the Impression Obsession blog to see a listing of all the sneak peeks being posted this week. There is a lot of good stuff out there!
