BIG Annoucement and Impression Obsession Week at Stamper's Dream

First, my big announcement before I get on to my card. I wouldn't want to keep you in suspense any longer than necessary! :-)
I'm proud to announce to you that Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace is joining the already fabulous The Dream Team at Stamper's Dream! I have long been a fan of her work, and in the last few months I have recently gotten to know her on a personal level. I've gotta tell you, she's as sweet as those awesome creations she makes! She will be joining us this week to celebrate Impression Obsession week at Stamper's Dream. Welcome, Becca! It's such an honor to have you! :-)

This card was not where I was going with it when I started. It does happen sometimes! LOL! The stamp I used is Sweet Lemonade by Impression Obsession. I stamped it three times on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with detail clear embossing powder. All images were colored with Tombow (water based) markers.

I cut and embossed the base image using my Curved Rectangle Nestabilities . The second image was colored and layered on top, then a third layer was popped up using foam tape.

Using my Quickie Glue Pen for the adhesive, I added some Crystal Ultrafine Glitter to the umbrella.

For the inside of the card I used the Impression Obsession Sentiment Sweet Things . It was stamped on Yellow Prismatics cardstock, then cut and embossed using Curved Rectangle Nestabilities to match the card front. The lemons and leaves are from the Sweet Lemonade stamp. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie. The pink cardstock is Intense Pink Prismatics .

Be sure to check out what the rest of The Dream Team has for you. This is the schedule for the whole week:

Monday - Charmaine , Laurie , Kimberly and Me

Tuesday - Cammie , Denise , and Me

Wednesday - Laurie , Tosha , and Me

Thursday - Becca , Denise , Kimberly and Me

Friday - Kimberly , Tosha , and Me

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow!
