Now, from the IO girls to help get you inspired!

I have two cards to share today using shades of the challenge colors.


This cute 4x4 card was made using the left over strips from my first stamping.
The Sunny Pumpkin is from the NEW release and a quick color. I adore the Holiday Words set. The sentiments are perfect to add inside or out on your holiday or everyday cards!


The BG design paper was made by blending Peacock Feathers and Marmalade Distress Oxide Inks onto Stardream paper. The Birch Leaf stamp was randomly stamped over the top of the oxide layer. The two die cut leaves are from the Patchwork Leaves set. Trimmed with a few embellishments and front is done!

IMPRESSION OBSESSION CHALLENGE

CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

Die cuts make for an easy and quick card, especially if making several.
I started by stamping Merry Christmas in IO's Chocolate ink onto Curious Cryogen. Once the ink was dry I used the Bead Adapt-a-Background die but, instead of cutting I embossed!
Gold mirror paper was used for the deer die cut. While this paper is beautiful in person, it's hard to photograph! I have dressed him up with some Holly and Berry Branches.

Be sure to check out all of the IO Holiday dies...so many to choose from!

Here's a list of the IO products that I used today




Thanks for looking and I always appreciate your comments!

 The school stamps from Lindsay Ostrom are great for teachers and students.
I love all of her sayings and words of encouragement.
