Welcome to day three of the Impression Obsession Fall Designer Die Hop!
We have some beautiful new dies share AND Gift Certificates to give away! 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 here and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new 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 a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!
Every day (Monday, September 29th – Wednesday, October 1st) 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 Wednesday’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 Wednesday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Friday.
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.
All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!
Hello everyone! Yesterday I talked about my new favorite cut out dies, and today I wanted to finish with another cut out. Trying to adhere dies to a card can be time consuming, so if you don't have to do that, I am all for it!
When I help people plan their holdiay cards, I always ask them how many they are making. If you are making ten cards, it is a very different process than if you are making eighty. Personally, if I am making a lot of cards, I want them to be as simple as possible.
For today's card, I took a piece of dark blue paper and taped three stnowflake dies and one saying to the paper using repositionable tape. I ran everything through a die cut machine and then adhered the paper to a white notecard. Yesterday I put colored paper behind the cutouts. Today I simplified that by using the actual color of the card to show through the cut outs. Here is a close up of one of the snowflakes:
If you wanted to "fancy up" the card, you could put tape behind the openings and sprinkle the snowflake with glitter.
