More Fall Release Shares from Impression Obsession Stamps!



I had an absolute "ball".. get it.......BALL.....lol colouring up these Christmas Balls. Such a pretty image and I love that the sentiment is part of the image. Saves me having to get too creative after spending all that time colouring~~~ I did add a little border using the Border DUO 3 set. The main image is called  Ornaments.
around  with Soft Sky.

I added some glitter here and there to glitz it up, 'cause you know me; I like it Blingy!


Happy Stamping!

Stampotique Designer Challenge-Anything Goes!



This week over at Stampotique Designer Challenge, Kim is the Hostess! She is letting you have your creative licence with an "anything goes" challenge.

I decided to make something sweet and simple. Non descript really, yet elegant I think.

It is actually a touch prettier in person as the glitter glimmers and shimmers and I didn't capture the pure whiteness of the cardstock.

I wanted to thank Carol and Kim for having me as Guest Designer over at Stampotique this month!

I used the following stamps for this creation

IO Stamps Designer Challenge-Say it BIG



Hello! Hope you are all doing well out in Blog land Today. I WISH I was in Blog  Land too, because it would be COOL there! We've had no air conditioning there this summer and it's like breathing through a little straw.... a teensy, tiny little straw.....NOT the one's that come with the Dollar Drinks (Oh my SWEET addiction!) Anyhoo, our challenge for this week is to have your creation's main focus be the Sentiment, thus SAY IT BIG...... Say it loud, say it clear.......I'm about to burst out into song. Do you remember that one? Even better, do you remember who sang it?


So onto the Card Biz! For my Creepy Halloweenie card I started by creating a background with this super fun CAC stamp called Hand Carved Halloween. It's super fun and has quite a retro look to it, don't you think? And now for the sentiment Spooktacular Halloween. I added some colour to the image to make it pop off the yellow paper. Lastly I dressed it up a bit with dies from the Spider Web Die Set and the Halloween Set (bat). I then added a touch of Flocking to the Spider to make him fuzzy and increase the creep factor AND some Glitta on the Bat wings and Spider Web; just because I could! Ha!




This is a pretty subtle card, however the main focus is again on the sentiment. Please forgive me if I've shared this one! In fact, just humour me please, recognizing it's my 50 year old brain at work. Lord knows in 20 years when I'm sharing, you are apt to see the same card several times per month! That would be crafters repeat. But then I will be a little elderly and hopefully my readers will respect this elder! lol. Anyway, I simply used two dies and some dollar store pearls to complete this beauty!


Pretty Simple, but I'd say Simply Elegant if I were tooting my own horn~

SDC 209 Repeat yourself

This is my third week as a Guest Designer for Stampotique Originals


I have a huge fondness for the stamps and the Company as it was one of the first Design Teams that I was on! I thank Carol and Jim for allowing me to showcase their beautiful stamps!

Sam Read is our hostess this week.  Sam Read is our hostess this week. Ha ha!  She likes to be repeated:

I recently read that the human eye likes things that are repeated, so for this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to use some sort of repetition on your creations. A stamp stamped more than once or even your own doodling, it's up to you but most importantly have fun!
So with that, I created this fun background using my Dylusions Paints and Baby Wipes. THEN I used the following stamps, repeating the patterns for two of the three



Thanks for looking~

Add some Purple and Black and Viola! Halloween! I had so much fun (No, really I DID!) creating this pop up card with multiple images. The  Haunted House was absolutely perfect for the card front!
