Fabulous Peacock

Today I felt in the mood for a little over-the-top fabulousness. What better way to do that than with the new Impression Obsession Peacock (H10028), some blue glitter paper, and a lot of Diamond Stickles? It also gave me a chance to use some of my fluorescent Copic markers, which I never seem to use.

To complete the card, I added the You are Fabulous saying (B3761) on the inside:

Last weekend I was at the Collins Group show and was able to get a sneak peek of the brand new Impression Obsession products. The new stuff is (to continue the theme) fabulous! You are going to love it. I am not sure when it will start to arrive in stores, but I ordered quite a bit of it for Angela's Happy Stamper. I will let you know when it arrives.

In the mean time, how about a chance to win one of my favorite saying sets? If you would like to win the Impression Obsession Greeting Squares set (CL91), please leave a comment by Friday, March 30 at 11:59pm EST. I will randomly choose one comment to win the set and post the winner Saturday morning. Good luck!

Spring is in the Air

Hello all. For today's Impression Obsession Challenge, the theme was "Spring is in the Air." It is also a chance for the designers to show you some of the new March release stamps. We will be having a new release in April as well as May, so be sure to check back to see those stamps too!

I chose to use one of the Hannah Davies images (10026). She has quirky, whimsical designs that I really like. I figured that I could make the girl look like a St. Patrick's Day image if I just colored her with a whole bunch of green Copic markers. I then paired her with the Retro Floral Cover A Card Background (CC010) and a St. Patricks Day saying (B5416). To finish the card, I added a shamrock I cut from a Memory Box die.

Want to see more of the new March images? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, and Vicki created.

Feeling the Blues

Today the Impression Obsession Design Team is bringing you a blue card challenge. As always, I try to make a monochromatic card for a color challenge. It always feels so difficult to limit yourself to just one color!

For my card, I stamped the Large Solid Bird (E6993) in Colorbox Chalk Blue Iris ink, cut it out, and popped it up onto my card with foam tape. For the background, I used a combination of blue cardstock, the Cover a Card Tapestry stamp (CC025), and the Cover a Card Thin Chevron stamp (CC107). To finish the card, I added the Some Birdy saying (A5418).

Are you feeling blue? Check out what Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, and Vicki created.
