Impression Obsession: Old is New

Hi everyone,

Sometimes we get so busy with new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a couple days a month to share some new projects using some great older stamps. You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession blog.
For my card today I decided to use the Rambling roses stamp, along with the Thankful clear stamp set and the coordinating die.
I started with a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. I stamped the roses in two corners with Versafine black ink using my MISTI tool embossed with clear embossing powder, watercolored and spritzed some Sparkle shimmer spray. 
I die cut Thankful 3 times from black card stock, adhered the layers together, spritzed Sparkle shimmer spray and adhered to watercolor panel.
Next, I stamped "for you" with Versamark on black card stock, embossed in white, spritzed with the shimmer spray, trimmed and adhered to panel.
I adhered the entire watercolor panel using fun foam onto top folding black card base.

Announcement:
The Ton will stop offering coordinating dies with our stamp designs. It was a very difficult decision to make but it was a practical one that I had to make if I want The Ton around for the long run. Once our in stock coordinating dies are sold out, I will not be reordering. Since I made this decision today, I am going to continue our 30% promotion for the next couple of days (30% off non new release stamps and dies). The code is "BYEFEB30".

March My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi stampers!
Welcome to the March MMH release blog hop. This is another kit you don't want to miss!!!!
This kit is all about the ocean and aquarium. You need to check out that Aquarium fancy die!!!! 
Here's a quick look at the kit!


Kit Contents:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
27 Coordinating Frame Cuts
5.5" x 4.25" Aquarium Fancy Die

3 Water Reactive Ink Cubes (Sea Salt, Sea Glass, Blue Water)
Blue and Green Droplets

Kit Value: $75.99Kit Cost: $34.99
The kit is available in limited quantities - grab yours before they are gone!
Now lets take a look at couple ideas.
First is a sneak of a card I had over the Hero Arts blog as part of the countdown on Saturday 

Next is a card that's seems fairly simple on the outside, but has an interactive element in the middle. A Pop up aquarium.
To make the card I started with  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of Dove White card stock to create the water using the reactive inks that come in the kit. Next I cut two Aquarium fancy dies and adhered them together to create more dimensional look. Stamped the fish and other sea creatures using Neon inks, added eyes with black pen and created my card front.


Now let's take a look on the inside. To make the aquarium pop up I cut two pieces of Dove White card stock measuring 4 1/4" x 6" and die cut only the middle part of the aquarium (without the frame). For the second piece I cut the edges closed to the frame. the longer piece I scored at 1/4" on each side, and then at 3".
I added 4 clear strings on the back of the longer piece and adhered the shorter piece on the back, so the strings are sandwiched in between. 
On the inside of the card I masked the middle area t 2 1/4" from the center of each side and ink blended the reactive inks.
I adhered the different sea creatures on the strings in on the card base. I added string adhesive tape on the tabs I created on the die cut and adhered along the masked lines. I closed the card to make sure it closed nicely. 
Here's how it looks inside. 





Blog Hop Details:
Hope you are following the blog hop and finding a lot of inspiration, as well as enjoying all the ideas. If you are following the hop along, you have probably arrived from Jenette's Blog and your next stop will be the amazing Emily (you don't want to miss either of their creations!)
