Impression Obsession Blog Hop Day 4


Welcome to Day 4 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Release Designer Hop!
 
We have some beautiful CHA peeks to share AND Gift Certificates to give away each day!!!
The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps & dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). The more blogs you visit each day the better chance you will have to win! 
Every day (Monday Jan 6th – Friday Jan 10th) one of the blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day.
Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday. 
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.
Hi again.  I want to thank everyone for the nice comments.  They have really made my day.

For today's card, I wanted to do a one-layer card.  The stamp and saying both come from a new clear set called Greet Each Day (CL537).  To make the card, I stamped the flower multiple times onto a kraft notecard and colored everything with some bright colors of Prismalcolor pencils.  I absolutely love white Prismacolor on kraft colored paper!

Here are the other blogs on the hop today:

One layer cards are so difficult for me to do, but this technique looks wonderful. Your kraft and colored pencil card are great!

I too like the look of white Prismacolor on Kraft paper. I never thought of doing that. And the yellows just make the card "pop".
