New Impression Obsession Spring Stamps and a Gift Certificate Too!

Starting today, January 24, and through January 29, DT members will be previewing Impression Obsessions NEW IMAGES for Spring each day on their individual blogs.  IO is offering a $25 Gift Certificate to be won in a drawing on Sunday, January 30.  Now for the best part!!  The WINNER will be shopping with the NEW IMAGES in the Online Store!!  The new images are in the online store Here.

The rules on how to play for a chance to win the Gift Certificate are HERE.




Now for the card I created using all NEW Spring images.  The words are from Kalani Allred's Clear Stamp Set True Blue Friend.  It can also be purchased separately in Red Rubber as Best Things.  It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and then put through my Cuttlebug with Spellbinders Beaded Ovals.  The beads on the edge were painted with Twinkling H2O's Autumn Skies.

The flowers are Alesa Baker's  Daffodil Bouquet. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and painted with Twinkling H2O's Buttercup, Lemon Drop, Orange Peel, Dreansicle, Olive Green, and Autumn Skies.  The centers were accented with Stickles Diamonds and 2mm white pearl stickers.  It was mounted on the die cut with pop dots.

The background was created using the Mega MountTM, Cover-A-CardTM, Thick and Thin, and Memento Pear Tart on White cardstock.  Then I stamped over that using Cover-A-CardTM Daffodils and Ancient Page Turquoise.  I am also finding that stamping with the Cover-A-CardsTM on leftover designer papers is a great way to color coordinate and get rid of remnants at the same time.  Also, because of the left overs from the 5.75X5.75 pieces I have some to help with my envelope and inside of the card too!

As a finishing touch to the card, I added 3-7mm white pearls to the bottom right-hand side of the card.  I am going to add the daffodils (flowers only without the stems) to the inside left hand side of the card and the lower left-hand side of the envelope.

Now check out the DT members creations on their blogs below for today's part of the hop:
The following days with links will be on the IO Blog.  Good luck in the drawing and I hope you enjoy the new designs.  Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Shirley,

The selected saying is quite nice on the beaded oval shape. Bow is a fine addition. Love the yellow!
