For the night lantern scene, I have used the new Owl Frame die. The owl has been removed from the die cut, leaving the trees in a perfect line to add some spooky lanterns! The Lanterns were cut out of black glossy paper and orange Stardreram. They have been popped up and arranged to appear hanging in the trees.

IMPRESSION OBSESSION FALL / WINTER DIE RELEASE CELEBRATION!

We are so excited to share the new Impression Obsession Fall/Winter dies.
 We are shaking things up a little for our new release!

You will have until Saturday September 29th at noon to leave your comments. Winners will be  announced on the individual blogs and also on the IO Blog, Monday October 1st.

This guy is so handsome! 
Impression Obsession dies cut beautifully. I love how easily this frame die makes up a card! Its fun to create a new look by using the same layout with differ colors.


The Deer Frame was cut out of copper Stardream paper. I love how simple, yet elegant, the deer is. I ran the die again using a chocolate Mars paper from the Paper Cut. This was pieced back into the negative part of the frame. Greenery die cuts, a snowflake charm, sequins and a buffalo plaid bow embellish him for a holiday look.



This time the Deer Frame was cut using white Stardream paper. The copper bg is from the first card. 


The Jingle Bells are so fun. They pair perfectly with Jingle All the Way die. I've nestled the bells in the curves and lines of the Jingle All the Way die cut.

DIE767-M ALL THE WAY

Good luck!
Thanks for looking and hope to see you back tomorrow for day 2!

A little color from the IODT!



The image here is called Wintery Day. By using several fall colors the image has taken on a different season. This was colored with Distress inks and watercolor pens directly onto the rubber. Using the MISTI makes this technique possible! 
The row of green trees were stamped first. Using watercolor pens, the tree trunk and limbs were colored next. After those were dry, I painted random splotches of color were leaves would be. Taking a paintbrush, I dabbed a little water on the leaves to soften the lines. Next the image was stamped with Versamark, clear ep and heated. The sky and ground were also watercolored. The sentiment was stamped last.

Cute...right?!!
The mug was stamped twice. It was fussy cut and curved with a ball stylus. Silicone was added to the back to keep the curve and dimension.

Today I am sharing 2 Thanksgiving cards.


The darling row of acorns and sentiment are from Lindsay Ostrom.
Inspiration for the fun Copic colors came from the Illustrated Faith papers. 
The acorn caps have a little shine on them from Glossy Accents.



This beautiful bouquet is by Carmen Medlin and the sentiment is Nola Chandler.
I've colored it in traditional fall colors but this stamp could be used for all seasons!
