Welcome to DAY 4 of the 2015 Impression Obsession Spring/CHA Release Blog Hop!
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 and hop along to 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 Jan 5th – Jan 9th), 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 winner will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. Both winners will be announced on Saturday January 10th.
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!
If you have any questions please email Jeanne.
All of the new stamps you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!

This Calla Lily is a new image from the Zenspirations Collection by Joanne Fink. She has a really fun style and most of her sentiments are inspirational or encouraging in nature.
I made a CAS card - with no bow (ACK!) - so it can be mailed easily. I kept a few of the flowers "outside the box" to add a little more interest. I adhered the patterned paper to heavyweight white card stock and then cut out my shaped card base.
I created a soft background with BG000. I kept smoothing it over, using the side of the super brush tip, adding additional layers of color to create a little depth.
Here are the remaining colors for the image. I did use the 0 pen to blot at the color in the flowers.
On the inside, I added one of Dina's new sentiments from the Maya Clear Set. A few little die cut flowers is a quick add on embellishment. I always keep a little dish of small die cuts like this on my desk.
