Impression Obsession - new products for May

It's time for a new monthly release from Impression Obsession, as we switch our schedule to release new products on the 1st of the month! Haven't seen the new products? They're all HERE - go take a peek!  

One of my new products is this paper pack, which is uniquely me! Each paper is one of my actual mixed media backgrounds. Some of these were intentional, and some are actually the papers I use to roll off my brayer and protect my work surface when I paint or ink blend. They make a perfect card base, or a base for your own additional mixed media layers!

There's a good variety of color in the pack, but the grungy look makes these papers perfect for masculine cards. This one is very simple, and showcases some other new products! Jeanne has a couple of texture background stamps, and I put a few of my favorite textures into a clear stamp set that will take permanent residence on my desk. There is a crackle texture, script and type, and a patterned border. Instead of putting these stamps on a block, I ink them and then curve them with my fingers so I can stamp just partial images.

For my focal panel, I stamped the Grungy Dots Cover-a-Card, then blended with the same ink to fill in the white space on the panel. I stamped the script and crackle images around the panel to add texture, then swiped a little acrylic paint with an old credit card to create a focal area that contrasted my die cut words. For the words, I used a little trick I learned from Lydia Fiedler - before I did my die cutting, I covered my cardstock with a cold laminate tape (packing tape works great too, but the tape I have is a little wider).

IO Products: 

Since I used a Cover-a-Card stamp here, I want to share this announcement... IO will no longer be producing these beautiful red rubber background stamps! 😭 You have until May 15th to order your favorites - after that they will be gone. There are 458 CAC designs to choose from, and 78 of them are mine.  The red rubber slimline stamps will also be gone - if you have not seen the beautiful large format florals in that section, make sure you take a peek!

Two lucky customers who place an Impression Obsession order during release week (May 1st-7th) will be chosen and will have a very special Impression Obsession prize package added to their orders! 

May 1st-2nd the Impression Obsession Team will be sharing new projects with the NEW clear stamps, stencils, papers and dies! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event. Here are the links to today's projects:
