2014 Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop Day 4!

2014 Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop Day 4!

We have some beautiful new stamps to share AND Gift Certificates to give away!

The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit here and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). Comment as you hop. Each comment that you leave gives you a chance to win!!!

The more blogs you visit each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!!!

Every day (Monday July 28th – August 1st), one of the IO designer blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day.

Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So….if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday, August 2nd.

CardMaker and Clearsnap Hop!

Welcome to the Clearsnap & CardMaker Blog Hop featuring some very fun and shimmery Izink Pigment Inks!

Make sure and comment on all the hop posts along the way because Clearsnap will be doing a giveaway of 6 Izinks on their blog!

If you came here from Steph Ackerman’s blog you are in the right place. If not head on over to the CardMaker blog to start at the beginning.

I added some embossing paste to my background paper with a comb tool. Let dry and then added some Cactus and Jasmine Izink mixed with a little water with a paintbrush.

Next I added a bit of Amethist Izink. Quick and easy background!

I stamped my flower (Impression Obsession H8724 Gentle Rose, phrase is from CL504 Build Your Own Message) and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Izink inks (Amethist, Volubilis, Cactus, Avacado, Gold. Mimoso and Jasmine) and a little water to watercolor my flower. So pretty and shimmery!

I even colored my ribbon to match with Cactus Izink! I dropped some ink onto the ribbon (little splatters) and let it set for a couple minutes. Then I added a little water (I put the ribbon in a ziplock bag first) and worked it through the ribbon. I heat set it with a heat tool. I initial drips left fun darker areas.

Now hop on over to Meihsia Liu!
