Sweet and Sparkly is how this card turned out! 
I used the new Watercolor Stripes to create the background, stamping in IO's Ruby Hybrid Ink. Then I die cut the little hearts out of each stripe. I popped that panel up with foam to add dimension. Behind two of the heart strips I added some iridescent glitter. 
It doesn't show how very sparkly it is in person, but the picture below can give you the gist of it! I added a little bouquet of heart flowers tied with some iridescent string. 


On the inside, the new Valentine sentiment can be sent to anyone. A sweet and simple sparkly card!

Dina created a really super set for the crafty bride! This set is full of every sentiment you could need after tying the knot. I used the new Rose Bouquet Stamp to create the background, stamping the background and the sentiment in IO's Mist hybrid ink. 
Check this set out with all the sentiments to help you create the perfect thank you card. This would also make a great set to create a bundle of cards that the new bride would love to receive as a gift. Finished card is an A2.

NEW RUBBER! Big surprise... I'm sharing a kitty card! These sweet kissing kitties were irresistible. The little tangle of whiskers is just too cute. I stamped the Gingham Heart with IO's Hybrid Ink. I used Bubblegum and Rose. Stamping multiple times really gives you an amazing result, showing off the detail in the gingham. Using MISITI for multiple layers of inking, I added the Rose (darker color) just around the edges. The teensy bows were tied on a fork. I used the IO Rose ink pad to swipe along the ribbon and along the edges of white card stock to create the pink layer panel. 

NEW IMPRESSION IMAGES

On the inside, I used the Bubblegum ink to stamp the Watercolor Dots background on the liner along with a sweet and simple message.

Crazy Bird Calendar


It's the time of year to start making calendar gift or just for yourself! Here's a little inspiration using Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy stamps. The calendar can be switched out every year, so you can keep using it. This is ideal to sit on a small easel or add magnets to the back for the fridge.

If you are local (Atlanta) and looking for the calendars we've got 2018 calendars in multiple sizes at the store! Give us a call at Impressive Ideas or drop us and email to set some aside for you.

Power Poppy - O holy Night

 I was in the coloring mood! The beautiful stamp is from Power Poppy and called O Holy NightOf course, I colored it up with my beloved Copics. I kept the card around all white and let the color pop. The beautiful frame die that I used for a card base is Spellbinder's Victoriana Die Set. 

The sparkle is hard to see but a little fine glitter gives it some shimmer.

The inside sentiment is from Power Poppy's Holly Go Lightly set. I stamped it with Memento's Paris Dusk ink.

The Blue Footed Booby.... you won't see this little fellow just hanging out in your yard! Along with this little cheerful bird, you'll find some great smile worthy sentiments mixed in to the stamp set. I paired him with some die cut sea plants, cutting them out of grey paper and sponging on a little black ink. 

I colored up Mr. Booby with Copic Markers.
B05, B02, N2, N4, W7, W1, W0, 0 Blender

 Do you see his little hair tufts? I just sliced some very thin blue paper. I had a giggle adding them in with tweezers... felt like I was doing a hair transplant surgery! The actual bird does not have little blue tufts of hair... creative license to cute him up bit!

On the inside is another set and I added a fun border die along the bottom edge. Finished card is an A2,

What did I use today? Here's the list!

I used the new Halloween Scene Die to create a sparkly card with Microfine Glitter.  I put Scor-pal tape on card stock and removed the top layer so that I had exposed sticky. I added my black scene die cut and then my glitter, filling in the open areas. I used a little bakers twine around the inside of the circle frame, gluing it in using a finaline applicator.
