To create this card idea, begin by stamping leaves all over the background panel. Then, use colored pencils or watercolors to add autumn colors to the leaves. Don't worry about being too precise, there are no rules when it comes to fall leaves! 

Finish the card off with a simple sentiment on a die cut shape, plus some scraps and strips of paper to give the sentiment a landing spot and focal point.

If you're ready to make some cozy fall cards, don't miss the October Limited Edition Red Rubber Stamp Set from Impression Obsession. This stamp set is only available for two months before it retires, so if you love it, don't miss it!

Sprinkled With Love: Cookie Card Ideas for Any Time of Year!

Earlier this month I shared some scrumptious cookie themed Christmas card ideas using the Smart Cookies Dies from Impression ObsessionToday, I'm back with some all-year-round card ideas with the same dies. After all, it's ALWAYS cookie time, right? Let's bite into some cute and crafty cookie cards!

The Smart Cookies Dies are absolutely adorable, featuring a sugar cookie, as well as a sugar cookie with a bite taken out, plus a chocolate chip cookie. Of course there are SO many ways to get creative with ink and cardstock colors to make all KINDS of cookies. Plus the die set includes THE CUTEST glasses, to make your cookie SMART. (Get it? Smart cookie?!) For my first card I added some cute faux sprinkles to embellish my cookie, and then I added those cute glasses and wiggle eyes for my smart cookie card. Inky edges and white gel pen details really add to the dimension of the cookies.
And lastly, a chocolate chip cookie! One lone cookie with the sentiment "I would share my last cookie with you." That's true love right there! 
Today is Team Favorites day on the Impression Obsession blog. It's the day the designers share one last peek at our favorite cards from this month's release. I'm so glad you stopped by today for a little crafty cookie break! Be sure to hit all the designer blogs to see what they've been working on! And then. . .if you must, do a little shopping at Impression Obsession (preferably while eating a cookie!) xoxo

Christmas Card Ideas for Dog-Lovers {Plus the Spellbinders Warehouse Sale!}

Festive pooches take center stage on today's handmade Christmas card ideas, featuring the Christmas Pups stamp and die set from Spellbinders. Tell friends and neighbors Happy HOWLidays and YAPPY New Year with the cutest stamped dogs, and punny sentiments. . . plus catch the details on the amazing Warehouse Sale at Spellbinders, happening NOW!

All of these adorable pups have coordinating dies. Stamp on colored cardstock, or color with markers, pencils or watercolors  - and then simply die cut them for cards. On today's first card I simply added them to some die cut snowy hills and added a few of the stamped accents included in the set. 
On the second card, I used some of the same marker-colored pups and added a background of patterned paper and die cut oval frames. The oval frames are a part of another pet-loving product, called the Special Pet Delivery Die Set, seen below. You can make your own furry friend from die-cut parts and then dress it up with hat, scarf, reindeer ears and more!
Both of these HOWLiday products are on sale on the Spellbinders website, just in time for Christmas card making! The Warehouse Sale at Spellbinders is always the best time to score rock bottom prices on practical items like adhesive, plus last chance dies, stamps, kits and more!

This is the Sweetest Gingerbread Man for Christmas Card Making!

Yesterday we started talking about Christmas cookies (the paper kind. . .with no calories. They taste terrible but look FANTASTIC on handmade cards!) So today I thought I'd share two more cards that focus specifically on the SWEET Ginger Cookie die, paired with adorable doodle print paper for some simple Christmas card ideas that you can whip up!

The Ginger Cookie die, from Impression Obsession, is pretty darn cute and clever. Everyone knows that the best gingerbread cookies have a sweet line of white frosting around their edges - and this die set makes it simple to add that detail, with the outer gingerbread shape being a tiny bit larger, to create a perfect ribbon of frosting around the edges! Plus, that heart die is oh-so-adorable. 

Both of today's card layouts are super simple, relying on simple die cutting, simple stamped sentiments, and fun patterned paper to create a fun Christmas card idea.
This week, the Impression Obsession team is celebrating the newest release of stamps and dies with a blog hop and there's lots of SWEET cards to enjoy! Today is Day 2 of our two-day hop.
