IO September Favrorite

 

Greetings friends. Today the design team is showing you some of their favorites from the September release. If you would like a full list of the participants, you can find it on the Impression Obsession blog.

The card I am sharing today is my favorite one I made from the September release. I absolutely love this patterned paper because it is so bright and vibrant, and I never get tired of pumpkin images!

To make the card, I stamped the pumpkin onto white cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers. I cut out the pumpkin and then layered it onto some die cut scalloped rectangles. It is really a quick and easy card to make, but I really liked the end result.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Greetings friends. Welcome to day 2 of the September release. For today's card, I used more stamps from the Pumpkin Spice clear set I shared yesterday as well paper from the new Winter Fun 6" x 6" paper pack.

To make the card, I cut out a white piece of cardstock using the Stitched Slimline Layers 2 die. I like the look of faux stitching around the image. I then colored my image with Copic markers to match the colors in the background paper. The sentiment is popped up using the Pinked Stitched Sentiment Banner die and there is a touch of glitter glue on the whipped cream to give some sparkle (I am not sure if you can see it in the picture). Don't forget to add a little shading underneath the cups/mugs to ground them in the scene.

Here is the new Winter Fun paper pack:

Greetings friends. It's fall y'all! Sorry, I couldn't resist. It is also pumpkin spice season, so I couldn't resist making a card with some of the new September release. 
 
The background paper and most of the leaves were cut from the same 6" x 6" paper pack called Fall Floral. I wanted to make sure that all the papers would coordinate with each other. I then added a tag with a sentiment from the new Pumpkin Spice clear set. The cup of coffee is from the same set and was colored with Copic markers.

Here is the paper pack I used:
 

And here is the new stamp set:

I also made a quick and easy Thanksgiving card using paper from the same paper pack as the one above, but I also added some leaves and a sentiment from a different September release stamp set.
 

The Fall Sayings clear set is loaded with pretty much any sentiment you will need for the season:

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will stop by again tomorrow!

IO Theme Day- Halloween

 

Greetings friends. spooky season is soon, so the Impression Obsession team is sharing their Halloween cards with you today. A full list of participating designers can be found over on the Impression Obsession blog. I hope you are inspired!

I had a lot of fun with the Halloween theme today. I think you will be able to tell because I ended up making five cards. There are two IO paper packs with Halloween papers in them, and I decided to pair them with two fun stamp/coordinating die sets. There are all relatively quick and easy cards to make.

In my first card, I wanted to use paper from the Autumn Scenes pack, which is a mix of Thanksgiving and Halloween papers. I knew that the spooky forest would be the perfect backdrop for what I am calling the pod people.

A second card uses the same Monster Set of stamps and dies, but this time I paired it with paper from the Vintage Halloween pack. You get a very different look switching the paper:

For the next three cards, I paired the Spider Trio stamps/dies with paper from the Vintage Halloween pack. That paper pack in particular has a lot of spider designs in it, which paired really well with the spider stamps:



Here is what the stamp sets and papers look like. They all work really well with the googly eyes embellishments from Impression Obsession:

Greetings friends. Today I am sharing a couple of cards using the September red rubber kit. The first one is a really quick and easy design. It uses a lot of the new 6" x 6" Pooh paper and then a sentiment and dotted line design from the new kit. I saw a lot of the other designers using the dotted lines to give the impression of wind, but I also liked it for creating a bee (or other insect) flight trail.

To finish the card, I added some bee plastic buttons to add a bit of embellishment.

 

For my second card, I really wanted to use this new sentiment, so I paired it with Piglet and a die cut heart. Of course, I had to add a bunch more of the new patterned paper.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Greetings friends. The September Limited Edition Red Rubber Kit is all about Whinny the Pooh, and I am here for it! I introduced you to the 6" x 6" Pooh paper pack last month and I used it again for this month.

Here is what the September Kit looks like:

As a reminder, this is what the paper pack looks like:

To make the card, I stamped my image onto white cardstock using black Memento ink and then colored everything using Copic markers.

For embellishment, I cut out leaves using scraps I had from the Classic Pooh paper pack. You don't necessarily have to use the paper pack for this particular card, but I am making a Pooh card set and want the patterned papers used on the cards to coordinate. As a finishing touch, I added a little natural twine.

IO Theme Day- Holidays

 

Greetings friends. With so many holidays coming up, the Impression Obsession team is sharing their holiday cards with you today. A full list of participating designers can be found over on the Impression Obsession blog.


For my card today, I wanted to make a Thanksgiving card with the new Autumn Crows clear set. I paper pieced the pumpkin using paper from the Fall Floral pack and then used more paper from the same pack for the background layer and the side label.

The label I used is actually a lot bigger and I cut it in half so that it looked more like a tab. I colored the leaves and ground with Copic markers and then added some leaves cut using the Oak Leaves and Rake die set. I use those leaves all the time when I want to add small embellishments to my fall cards. It is really practical. It is also a good one to use if you are making a shaker card. Here is what it looks like:

Greetings friends. Today I am using the new Autumn Crows clear set to make cards for fall, but in one card I focused on Thanksgiving and the other focuses on Halloween. I like being able to use the set for both.

In the first card, I paired the sunflower/crow image with some patterned paper from the new Autumn Scenes paper pack. I liked that I was able to have sunflowers for both the paper and image. I colored the sunflowers with a combination of Copic markers and some colored pencils.


For the second card, I once again paired images from the Autumn Crows set with paper from the Autumn Scenes paper pack. Very different look with the same materials, right?

This is what the paper pack looks like:

Greetings friends. I am continuing my Winnie the Pooh series today with the new Pooh Window clear set. It has some really lovely sentiments to coordinate with the Pooh looking out the window image.

To make the card, I stamped the image and sentiment in Memento black ink and then colored it with Copic markers. I added a bit of light blue marker to the edges of the window to make it look more like glass. Here is a close up of the card and of the sweet Winnie the Pooh paper I used for the background:

Tomorrow's cards will be taking a break from Winnie the Pooh, so I hope you will stop by to see them.

Greetings friends. One of the greatest things to come out of the August release is the new collection of Winnie the Pooh items. I am absolutely in love. Of course, I might be biased because I still have my Pooh bear from when I was 2. There are new stamp sets as well as a wonderful 6" x 6" paper pack of Classic Pooh images.

For my card today, I used an image and sentiment from the new Pooh Wreath clear set. I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers. After that was done, I cut out the wreath by hand and layered it onto pieces of paper from the new paper pack. This is what the new pack looks like:


To finish the card, I popped up my sentiment using some foam tape.

Speaking of the paper pack, I liked it so much that I used pieces of the collection to create a card. The only stamping I did was to add my sentiment. I did color in the Pooh and balloon with Copic markers though. 


Here is a close up of some of the papers:
