Impression Obsession: Fall/Winter Die Release Celebration

Hi stampers!
Happy Monday! The Impression Obsession die release is in the store now and I have few cards to share with you today! You can see the entire die release HERE And you don't want to miss it. There are some awesome dies you will NEED.

I have been dying to try a technique Jennifer McGuire showed about  a year ago , Reverse Die Impression, and thought the new snowflakes and sentiments are perfect for it.
I dry embossed the back of the dies onto my card stock, but previously I inked the back of the die with white craft ink, then run it thought my die cutting machine.
I die cut snowflakes and sentiments from glitter paper and adhered in the dry embossed inked area.
Pretty simple but effective!
Head over the IO Blog for more inspiration and list of participants in this fun celebration!

Pink and Main and Glue dots collaboration and giveaway!

Hi stampers!
Happy Friday and welcome to the collaboration blog hop between Pink and Main and Glue Dots! 
Today I am featuring one of the new release sets from Pink and Main called Snow Sweet Along with the coordinating dies. As well I used Pop Up Glue dots to raise my image and sentiment for more interest. 
To make the card I started with a white card stock panel and masked off the bottom with a piece of masking paper that I created by die cutting the edge using the scallop waves dies. Once masked I ink blended few blue ink colors to create ombre background. Then splattered some white and shimmer paint to create snowy effect, as well added dots using white gel pen. Set it aside to dry. 
In meantime I stamped the cute little snowman, colored with Copics and die cut. Then for the sentiment, I stamped it on Navy card stock using Versamark and embossed in white. Trim to size.
Once my background panel was dry, I stamped the snowflakes and embossed in white textured embossing powder. Assembled my card using Pop-up glue dots!

Impression Obsession: Things with wings

Hi stampers!

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Things with Wings".
I decided to use couple new stamps to create clean and simple card using couple stamps: Season Greetings and Fluffy Bird.
 I stamped the images using my MISTI onto white card stock and embossed with copper embossing powder. I didn't want to take away of the pretty copper color, so I just trimmed down my panel and adhered to a brown card base using fun foam.

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:

Catherine Pooler Designs: Home for the Holidays Stamp of Approval is LIVE!

Hi everyone!

The Home for the Holidays Stamp of Approval is live for the general public. Since last night when it went on sale for the Stamp Nation members who attended t he PJ party, then for those on the wait list, only 30% of the boxes remain in stock. So hurry up! Head over Catherine Pooler's store to get yours and  time there are some add-ons too and new items in the store ;)

Here's a card I made using couple sets from the SOA collection!
To make the card I started with a piece of Premium white card stock, on which I drew my guidelines for the wreath. Draw vertical line through the middle and one horizontal at 2" from the top, using pencil. Use the compass to draw a circle with about 1 1/2 radius with the center in the intersection point of the lines you draw.
Then I marked my  panel at 4" from the top on both left and right sides and connect those points with the top left and right (connect opposite sides). This will split the circle in 8 parts and you can use it as a guideline to stamp the images to create a wreath.
Using my guide I stamped the images around in a circle, once I was done I let the ink dry and then erased the guidelines.
Stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink and adhered to Midnight note card! 
I have a video of a similar card up on my YouTube channel if you wish to check it out. You can find it HERE

Picket Fence Studios: Winter Release is Live and GIVEAWAY!!!!

Hi everyone! 
And welcome to the very first Picketed Fence Studios Official release. This is a release full of winter focused stamps and three new stencils perfect for making ink blending background.

GIVEAWAY: I am giving away set of circle blending stencils (all three of them) to one lucky reader. You need to leave a comment to my blog by Friday September 21st, and the winner will be announced by 9/24

For my first card I used the 2 1/2" circle stencil and created the background. I used the Bear King of winter for the image and sentiment. 

For my next card I used "all that sparkle" background stamp and stamped on Vellum using Versamark, then embossed with copper embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment from String of Lights and again embossed with Copper embossing powder. I adhered the panel onto slightly smaller white card stock and then adhered onto pool note card. Simple and Ease ;)
