IO Blog Hop- Dies Day 2


Welcome to day 2 of the IO die blog hop. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by yesterday and left such nice comments.

For today's card, I wanted to use the new Paper Cone die. I used it with daisy stamps/dies, but really, you could put anything in the pocket. The nice thing about the die is that it adds a scallop edge and scores the paper so that it easily folds into a cone.


Stamps:
Daisies from the Impression Obsession Spring Medley clear set CL465
Impression Obsession Heartfelt Thanks B3928

Dies:
Impression Obsession Paper Cone  DIE040-R
Impression Obsession Daisies DIE072-F

Inks:
Black Versafine

Instructions:
  • Cut out daisies using white cardstock and dies (2 of each kind of daisy)
  • Stamp daisies onto cut out daisies using black Versafine ink
  • Color daisies with markers and a blender pen.  To do this, scribble a little of the marker color onto an acrylic block and pick up the color with a blender pen.
  • Highlight parts of the flower with some yellow Twinkling H20 paint and a waterbrush.  Hint…don’t add too much water or you will warp your paper
  • Cut out flower pocket with white cardstock
  • Put colored flowers into the pocket
  • Layer the pieces of the card and add some twine
  • Stamp saying onto the card.

Don't forget to check out the other blogs for inspiration.  You have the chance to win an amazing prize each day....your choice of three of the new IO dies!  The rules of the contest are listed below.
Participant Guidelines
  • The hop will run from March 19th-March 21st
  • Comment on each participating blog, including this one, for that day.
  • The deadline for comments for each day will be 10 p.m. EST.
  • There will be a drawing on each day for three dies of the winner's choice.
  • The winner for each day will be announced in the next day's Impression Obsession blog post.
Good luck!
