Have you heard?
Impression Obsession has their own line of hybrid inks! The color groupings are wonderful making them perfect for using with layering stamps!
Dina Kowal has designed this fabulous Sketched Rooster.
The yummy ink colors used here are Canary, Orange and Cherry.
To showcase this beauty, the All-in-One Frames Rectangle were used. I stamped the Scribble Checkerboard Cover-a-Card onto the frame using IO's Black ink.


The Rooster here was stamped in Goldenrod, Orange and Cherry.
Check out the image that was stamped on this frame..it's NEW! The beautiful Cover-a-Card is called Wallflowers.

IMPRESSION OBSESSION DT THURSDAY


Today I'm sharing a mini trio set that is easy and fun!


I have stamped in Versafine the lavender silhouette that is from IO's Twinchies 1 Cling Set.
To make the BG I used Distress Oxide Inks and Stardream paper from The Papercut.
Impression Obsession carries so many types of stamps that are wonderful for this technique.
The Love Lines are the perfect compliment for these clean and simple cards!


There are four images in the Twinchies 1 Cling Set.
 The bold images were stamped onto the backgrounds using the MISTI.


A look at the image before cutting!


The cards are 3 3/4 squared. 
These make for an easy gift!
