Impression Obsession - more January products

We've got more projects from the new release from Impression Obsession today! If you haven't seen the new release, you can find it all HERE - go check it out! 

Some of you have asked if there will be more Pooh sets - OF COURSE there will! For January I have the Valentine Piglet and Eeyore set - these have been Dinafied with sweet little hearts for Valentine's Day and beyond! Lots of tiny sweet sentiments as well. If you caught Sarah's demo from the Paper Cut at the Crafter's Classroom this past weekend, you saw this set in action! 

For my first card I used a new background stamp called Ancient Lace - that image is taken from a very old book about textiles and it makes a really lovely and grungy backdrop. Piglet is colored with markers and pencils, and I used a scrap from one of my Christmas paper pads to paper-piece the heart.

Here's the Eeyore image - it's a nice large one! The background here was done with one of my new stencils, which is called Four Petal - I love dogwood blossoms and this sort of geometric repeat... the base of that panel was a piece of cardstock I used to test a bunch of Copic markers, and I brayered white acrylic paint onto my gel press then laid the stencil down to take a print.

IO Products: 

January 15th and 16th the IO Team will be sharing projects with these and more new products! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event. We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession $25 gift certificates for the event so the more you comment through our Release Celebration the more chances you'll have to win! All comments for each of the event days will be open until Tuesday January 24th at 8pm CT and winners will be announced on Wednesday January 25th on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Here are the links for today, and remember you can still comment on yesterday's posts for entries into the drawing!

Note: The original Winnie the Pooh book by A.A. Milne came into the public domain in January 2022. All the images in my Pooh sets use original line art by E.H. Shepard with portions added and/or replaced with my own art. I do my level best to preserve recognizable imagery rather than redrawing my own version out of respect for the artist and characters. Disney does not own rights to the book illustrations, and they have no say over the modifications and derivative workings many stamp companies are producing now. Please enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love, love, love your cards! This is a terrific release! The lace is amazing looking!

  2. Beautiful cards Dina - I particularly love the ancient lace design, as I have loved fine lace from childhood - I found myself trying to work out how it would have been made, having done a wee bit of bobbin lace myself... (eyeroll)

  3. Love Eeyore, of course! That use of real lace with the lacy background is beautiful.

  4. Love your hopeful messages!

  5. I LOVE the Winnie the Pooh characters and your lace!

  6. The Pooh line is SO CUTE. I would love to get all of them. Your piglet is especially cute in these colors

  7. That four petal stencil is one of my fave new products - it's so pretty! And I just love the way that came out!! Gorgeous! And sweet Piglet - he's always a favorite. Gorgeous cards!!

  8. Super projects as always. Love your work and IO too.

  9. Both cards are perfect! I'm going to need that lace CAC for sure!!
