Blog Hop- Dies Day 3

Welcome to the final blog hop day.  Impression Obsession has released a bunch of new dies, and the design team would like to show you lots of cool ideas for using them during a three-day blog hop.  The best part?  There will be a winner chosen each day from participants who comment on each DT blog for that day, including the Impression Obsession blog. The winner for each day will be announced in the next day's Impression Obsession blog post. Each winner will get to select 3 Dies of their choice!!!

I just know the new Mitten die set (Die025-22) is going to be really popular.  It comes with the mitten, snowflake, and bow dies.  For this card, I matched the mitten die with the Large Mitten stamp (L8144).  Using both the stamp and die is a nice effect because it gives you a white border around the mitten.  To color the mitten, I inked the stamp with light blue ink, pressed it against the knit cover a card (CC138) stamp that was inked with dark blue ink and then stamped the mitten onto white cardstock.  I cut out the mitten with coordinating die and then added the snowflake and bow.  The bow die coordinates with the String Bow Bell stamp (C8159).

Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog as well as the following blogs for a chance to win three dies of your choice:

IMPORTANT...I am going on vacation and scheduled this post in andvance.  I added the names of the designers who had signed up by the time I wrote this post.  Other designers may have signed up since then.  Please go to the Impression Obsession blog first to get the most up to date Friday blog list.  Thanks!

Good luck!
