IO Christmas Greeting Challenge

 Impression Obsession...or addiction!  :)  My friend called the other day to remind me of the online sale at Impression Obsession.  I'm not a on line buyer;  last time was a year a go for this sale!  I really like going to an actual store!  But this on line buying is pretty cool!  So many awesome products!  So many stamps and dies that I would love to have!   But want and "need" are 2 words that I always have to question myself! :)  So again IO, Thank you for all the great inspirations and awesome product!  Love your product!

So on with production, I wanted to try my luck at this challenge that IO is putting on.

Christmas cards: Hot of the Press

All of these inexpensive clear stamps by Hot off the press, can be found at Nika's in Windsor, NS.

My Elf card is horrible!  I really don't like it!  But it was fun to make!  Always fun playing with glitter!

Thanks for looking!

Have a great day!

Get well card

Not a great picture!  But I love this stamp!  (don't know the manufacture!)  The sentiment is from Great Impressions!  The image was stamped with black versafine and embossed with chocolate brown embossing powder by stampendous.  The teenager that I made this card for, is a true "hurtin' puppy!"  They will have their jaw wired shut for 4  months!  I wished we could protect our children from all of life's bumps and bruises!  I try by worrying! :)  But not very productive or healthy!

Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends in the USA!

Thanks for looking!

Serendipity: Barn

I needed to make a card for my cousin so I thought I would try this stamp;  1145K Barn and windmill by serendipity.  I used lots of glitter glue after I colored the image with a combination of spectrum noir and Marvy markers.   The sentiment was also by serendipity stamps.

I would like to enter this card in the challenge at Serendipity stamps;

"SSCB#37 - Thankful! This could be a card or home decor project to celebrate Thanksgiving, a thank you card, or a design featuring an image of something you're thankful for!"

I am thankful for living in the country! :) This barn reminds me of my dad's home.  (Wished we had a windmill too!)
Thanks for looking.
Best wishes to all those entered in this challenge!  

Happy Thanksgiving!

Impression obsession: Mixed Flowers

stamp:  F1097 mixed flower

Thanks for looking!

Serendipity and PSX

Serendipity Stamp :  1194H Winter Fence line
PSX:   G-1756

ink for stamping:  Archival: coffee

colored with ink

cuttlebug leaf die,
leaf punches
2 embossing folders

I went a little over board with the markings in the punched leaves!  And not sure I like the wheel barrel!  I think some of the large cut out leaves would have been better choice!   Love this orange card stock!  I think it is called "silk" . It was Fun making this card even if I find lots of faults in it!  :)  Happy November and good luck to all those entering in the Serendipity challenge.  Thanks for looking!
