Impression Obsession: Happy Haunting

Hi stampers!

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Happy Haunting".
For my card today I decided to use the Little Monster stamp along with Happy Halloween sentiment. I started by stamping the image on some Bristol card stock using the IO Black Hybrid ink and colored with Arteza watercolor pens. Next I cut it out. On a 3 3/4" x 5" Bristol Panel I stamped the sentiment in black and added a little strip of black glitter paper. Adhered to pink card base, added the image and some Nuvo jewel drops.

Don't forget to play along over at the IO Stamps blog for a chance to win a gift certificate, as well as visit the other Design Team members for more inspiration.

Picket Fence Studio: October Release

Hi stampers!
Happy Sunday! Today is the day, the new Picket Fence studios release is live!!! And it's full with . some amazing stamps, life changing blender brushes (now you can purchase them in smaller groupings) etc. 
Here is just a little part of the release. 
First up is the set Sip Happens! It's my kind of stamp set, as my choice of drink is wine! 
I made alcohol ink background with some foiling, then used Versafine ink to stamp one of the sentiments from the set and embossed it with Detail Black ink. Trimmed down the panel to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered using fun foam to black top folding note card.

For my second card I used one of the cutest sets from this release,Like a Crafty Fox. I stamped the image on white card stock and colored with copic markers, next stamped the sentiment from My Man, My Friend. I used the new smallest blending circle stencil to add some Soft Pool ink around the fox. Trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4" x 5" and adhered to Terracotta Tile top folding card base.

Impression Obsession: Warm Hugs

HI everyone,
Happy Thursday! I am in MA as I am writing this post, but wanted to share this little penguin card for you using the Peeking Penguin stamp.

To make the card I started by stamping the penguin with IO black ink onto bristol paper and colored it with Zig Clean Color real brush markers. Next I stamped it again and cut out the little "wings". 
I stamped warm hugs above the image and assembled my card and added some Nuvo drops.

To finish it off I adhered the panel onto black top folding note card.

I had so much fun with this release. So here are few cards I made. 
First let's start with the Wonderland print set. I am in LOVE with this set. I used different colors to stamp the images so I can get different results. 
Tip: the colored kraft stamp is stamped first in white prigment ink, then let it dry or heat set and stamp over it the images in color.

Next, is another set of cards that I pretty easy to make and they are perfect for the holidays, it's a set called Blizzard Hugs. I stamped the images onto shimmery card stock then embossed and aded sentiment.
