It's Snow Time! {Join the latest Impression Obsession Challenge}

Is it snowy and cold where you live? Or do you WISH it was snowy and cold? Florida is QUITE chilly (for us anyway) right now, so it's the perfect time to celebrate the brisk start of December with this COLD WEATHER cardmaking idea. We're kicking off a new card challenge at Impression Obsession today and the theme is It's Snow Time! 

For today's card I used the Holiday Tree clear stamp set. These trees were so much fun to color with colored pencils. I used a few shades of blues, aquas, and a little bit of purple to make my trees feel cold and snowy without being plain white.

Sidenote: This sweet Holiday Trees stamp set was designed by Lindsay Ostrom. She is one of my favorite illustrators and hand lettering artists. I actually obsessed over one of her lettering books when I was a teenager, and didn't realize until recently that it was hers! She has a BRAND NEW book out, and I gotta give a shout out! Grab your copy of the Creative Hand Lettering with Lindsay book here, and join in at Lindsay's Hand Lettering Facebook group! Plus, find all of Lindsay's stamps at Impression Obsession HERE.

Okay, back to the card! The background of my snowy scene was simple with the Snowfall Die. Isn't it FUN!? I love anything with polka dots, so although this might TECHNICALLY be snow, think of all the fun backgrounds you could make with this. (Bubbles, confetti, polka dots...) After I diecut the panel, I sponged aqua ink over it to add some color. 

Alright friends - it's your turn. Dig through your stash of Impression Obsession stamps and dies, and see what you have that works for our latest challenge, It's Snow Time! Then link it up at the IO blog because you might just win a gift certificate to the shop! Over on the blog, you'll also find a list of the design team members who are sharing some SNOWY  inspiration to kick off the challenge. 

Don't have any Impression Obsession stamps and dies? I hate to be an enabler, but you really should check out their shop - every time I look, I see something I never noticed before. They have a HUGE selection, in EVERY style and theme! (#sorrynotsorry)
