Today the Impression Obsession designers are showing off some new fall dies - hop along for a peek and a chance to win! You'll find all the details listed at the IO Blog, and a list of designers below. All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!
I wanted to showcase the new Large Poinsettia dies on something dimensional, so I had a little fun with this cube ornament, made from 2" Art Squares from Inchie Arts.
Each panel was glued to a 2" matboard square, and then I assembled the box - there are full directions HERE if you'd like to try making your own cube. Before I glued on the final piece, I added a cord hanger and tucked a tiny bell inside just for fun.
The poinsettias were shaped with a bone folder and adhered to the cube with hot glue. I used gold Flower Soft for the flower centers.
Here are a few more views (with thanks to my neighbor for the use of his overhanging tree).
I love the variation in the color from the watercolor powders! This was Alizarin Crimson Color Burst and Crimson Brusho.
The hop starts with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Remember, the more blogs you visit each day… the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! There will be a prize for each of the two hop days and a bonus prize on the final day from all the comments left for both days. (If you missed yesterday's post, go back and comment now!)
