Impression Obsession- Less than Three Layers!

USE LESS THAN THREE!

Want a chance to win an Impression Obsession $25 Gift Certificate?
Join the Impression Obsession DT and play along in the Un-layered Challenge! We are keeping it simple this time by using less than three layers!
New to our challenges?
 All the info you need to join in the fun can be found here on the IO BLOG!

Here is your inspiration...


 Getting an early jump on holiday cards? I'm always the last minute girl. I so admire those that make one Christmas card every week and then have everything ready to go as soon as December rolls around. Why can't that be me? 
Today's challenge was all about using less layers. Which translates to a CAS card. No stamps on today's card, just a few dies and some pop dots. I used metallic mirror card stock and a few little crystals help to dress this up with a little holiday shine.

Take the cake or the cupcake in this situation! This cute little cupcake is s smaller image and the finished card is 3 1/2"square. So it's the perfect little card to accompany a special cupcake! I colored it up with a few Copics, added some layers and it's ready to go!

Super Easy Sunflower!


I'm sharing an easy sunflower card for today using the Sunflower Die.
I cut the die out of a scrap to use for a template. I just held it in place over the paper I was coloring and did a quick outline on the inside of the petals with the lightest yellow. This just gave me my margins of where the center should be and an idea of the petal edges. There is NO BLENDING! I just used my Copics to do outward strokes of color. 


After I placed the die cut over the coloring, all those hard lines in the coloring just kind of fade away.  Some of my yellow strokes exceeded the die cut, so I just cut another white layer with the die and stamped Thanks on that to piece in place.


I topped it off with the Rectangle 2 Stitched Frame.

Grab an IO stamp and some coffee and get to stamping to join us for this week's challenge!



It's all about the coffee here! It's chilly in Atlanta again, so coffee sounds pretty good right about now. Check out the new Scribble Circle Dies, these are on my favorite list right now! I colored my image up with Copics. Images with a lot of shading are super forgiving and much easier to color than most people think!

Impression Obsession - Moody Blues Challenge

The Moody Blues!
Love the color blue or know someone who needs a pick me up?  You are in luck!
 The Impression Obsession Challenge is all about Blue!

To play along in a challenge is easy. Use all IO stamps or dies, create and enter! New to challenges? You don't need a blog to play, just follow the guidelines that can be found on the IO Blog!  AND as always... There is a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate up for grabs!

Check out the Blue designs from the team!


I inked up this funky star designed by Seth Apter and added a little Copic shading around the edges. This could make for a fun graduation card and you could switch up colors to reflect the school colors. The Blue Copics I used are: B41 and B0000. I used a little E43 to outline around the edges of the word to give it a little pop. A small star was cut out and popped up in the center for dimension.

Impression Obsession: Think PINK Challenge!



Welcome to Impression Obsession's challenge, THINK PINK! The only theme is use something PINK! 
New to playing in challenges? It's easy. You can find all the details you need here on the 
IO Blog. Did I mention that there was a $25 IO Gift Certificate up for grabs? Well, play along in our challenges and it just might be your lucky day!

Here are some PINK ideas from the DT:
 I colored my flowers all pink, since that was the challenge... then I had to add some yellow in the mix! I used the NEW Vintage Flower image and cut it out three times after stamping.  I clipped some leaves and placed them back in spots. The third flower I trimmed some petals off so it would be smaller and all three would not look the same.
