DAY 1 - IO CHA Sneak Peeks! - Heart Stems


Welcome to Day 1 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Release Designer Hop!
We have some beautiful CHA peeks to share AND Gift Certificates to give away each day!!!
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 and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps & dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). The more blogs you visit each day the better chance you will have to win!
Every day (Monday Jan 6th – Friday Jan 10th) one of the 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.

Today’s hop list!
Jenny Gropp - You are here!



 I thought this new Batik Medallion image was really cool and had lots of possibilities. I stamped it in black and white and cut it out with a Spellbinder's Grand Dahlia Die and hand cut a thin red border. I cut out a window from the card base and inserted vellum in the window. Neater looking in person than the picture. ;)

I popped up the medallion using foam tape. The cute little die cut Heart Stems I cut out of heavyweight white and then used Copics to color them red and black.

  66. Now THIS is my type of stamp.....using stamps and dies, especially if they are a matched set. I love the fact that only the flowers are hearts on the Valentine's Day card. It's not overdone with Hearts. That's why it is so special! Thanks for sharing.
