IMPRESSION OBSESSION and MISTI HOP


The perfect match!
Impression Obsession is teaming up with My Sweet Petunia for a Hop!
Play along for a chance to win by leaving comments on ALL the blogs.

Impression Obsession will be giving away a $25 IO Gift Certificate and from 
My Sweet Petunia it's a Mini MISTI!

The winners will be posted Wednesday October 12th on 
Impression Obsession Blog
My Sweet Petunia
and 
FB Pages


The Winter Elements cling set from IO was used here. The MISTI has really changed the possibilities in stamping. It is so easy to make multiples, line up designs and sentiments, along with its many other uses. You will never throw anything away again because the image was not stamped complete!


I stamped the two pinecones in brown ink and then masked them. 
Here you are seeing, the green pine stamped onto the left side of the pinecones.
On the right side, the pine was stamped onto acetate. By stamping onto acetate or clear film, you are able to see your design before you ever commit to your paper! Once I have decided that I like the placement, the acetate is removed and cleaned off.


Now, my pine image is ready to be stamped directly onto my layer!


Here is the result!

The Small Poinsettia die was used to create the dimensional flower.
A little sparkling of Bo Bunny Sugar Paste and Wink of Stella were added.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the Hop!

Here is a complete list and links for the hop!

Karen Amidon...you are here!
