Impression Obsession Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the 2015 Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop!

We have some beautiful new stamps to 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 stamps on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). Comment as you hop. Each comment that you leave gives you a chance to win!!!

The more blogs you visit each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!

Every day (Monday July 15th – July 17th), one of the IO designer 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, July 18th.

All of the new stamps you’ll be seeing on the hop are available NOW! at www.iostamps.com


Today I thought I would share a holiday card using two new clear sets.  One is called Spread Christmas Cheer, and it contains the saying and the little jingle bells.  The other is called Snow Flourish and it contains the snowflake border background.

To make the cards, I stamped the snowflake border repeatedly onto white cardstock with a light blue ink.  I embossed the bells on metallic gold paper in gold embossing powder and then cut them out.  To finish the card, I rounded some corners, popped up the bells with some foam tape, and added my saying.

Items Used:
