Impression Obsession July Release

Soooooo excited to be able to share Impression Obsession's newest release with you! I have a big role in this release which I've been hinting at for a while now - Impression Obsession now carries stencils and paper pads, and I am very proud to have my name on them! At the beginning of this year I pushed myself very hard to learn the aspects of design that go into paper and stencil creation. After so many months, it is a huge thrill to be able to hold these products in my hands, and to be able to offer them to you for use in your card making and other crafting pursuits. There will be many more to come!


Today the design team will be sharing projects that they've made using new products for July! If you've come here from the IO blog you're in the right place - I'm at the top of the hop today! We have had some delays on the manufacturing end, so we've been scrambling to get these done for you - in the coming weeks we'll have more time to share more projects and videos of the new stuff so you can get a better look at these fun products!


I've used the Layered Dahlia stencil set for this card - I love the results and I hope you do too! I used IO's hybrid inks in Peach, Melon and Orange to build up the layers. The sentiment set and label dies are new too. Also - see that striped paper peeking out? That is from one of my new paper packs, Fall Floral - you'll find a mix of floral and leafy patterns, with some solids and other prints mixed in. 


Here's one more card I made while I had the Dahlia stencils out - this one was done with the 2nd stencil in the set, and I used it to deboss my cardstock for a letterpress effect. You can ink the stencil to do this too - you might be able to see that there was a little ink left on my stencil that left a faint impression. This is just one great way to get more use from your stencils - there is so much you can do with them!


Here's a closer look, with worse lighting to capture the dimension! The paper used on this card base is from the Homespun Florals paper pack, which has a more wintry calico feel. There is a stencil to match it as well! 😻
