Impression Obsession Week!

Happy Labor Day! The Dream Team is celebrating all week with cards using stamps from Impression Obsession . I will list this week's schedule at the bottom of my post.


The stamp I used for the main image is Impression Obsession's Toasty Treats cling mount stamp.

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black VersaFine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow Markers . The marshmallows and whipped cream were embellished with White Liquid Applique then sprinkled with Ultrafine Crystal Glitter while it was still wet. The edges were dirtied with Distress Inks .

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers Holiday Demi Phrases stamp set. It was stamped on Mint Prismatics cardstock, then cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels Five die cut. The snowflake was cut from a Martha Stewart Glacial Snowflake punch, then glittered using Art Institute Glitter's Vintage Glass Shards .

I really love using paper for Christmas cards that isn't meant to be Christmas paper. I picked up that little trick from my friend Tosha . She is the master at pulling that off so eloquently. The designer paper I used is from the Cosmo Cricket Li'L Man Paper Kit . The cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics dark, Mint Prismatics and Tawny Prismatics medium.

Be sure not to miss anything this week! There are so many awesome designs in store for you:

Today: Cammie , Charmaine , and me

Tuesday: Amy , Denise , Charmaine and me

Wednesday: Silke , Becca , and me

Thursday: Denise , Laurie and me

Friday: Tosha , Silke , Amy and me

Oh yeah...I'm still searching for some blog candy to celebrate 200,000 hits coming up this week. Stay tuned!
