IMPRESSION OBSESSION DT THURSDAY

 Design Team Thursday with Impression Obsession.

Today I am sharing with you a cascading card featuring the Merry Penguin and Holiday Home Set. With a few cuts and score marks the base is easy to make. But today, I have used one that is pre-cut and scored from The Paper Cut! Even easier!
To dress the base up I added a bright red paper to frame the knit pattern. The inside layers were embossed with a snowfall design. 


Oh what fun it is!
These cute little guys were stamped with IO Black Hybrid Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  
I love the igloo being used as their backdrop!


The Merry Penguin Set has several different add ons that you can don them in! 
These clear sets also have matching dies...yippee!


Birds eye view of the layers!

Anna Wight...out this week


Today I will be sharing two cards.




This bright and cheerful holiday card was made using three ornaments from Lindsay Ostrom. First I stamped and colored the images with Copics. Next I pierced small holes at the top of the ornament and then at the bottom of the letters. To give the idea that the ornaments are hanging, I ran silver metallic thread through the holes. This simple card is finished off with Clear Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and a few tiny bows that were tied using a baby fork!

This little guy is dressed in his finest for the holidays!
The adorable gingham penguin was stamped with IO Black Hybrid Ink and then heat embossed in clear. The tree shaped shaker card was made using the Christmas Tree Cutout die. Diamond Dust was used inside the shaker.
