Look! It's the Fall and Winter NEW RELEASE at Impression Obsession! {Day 1}

Oh crafty friends, even though it's hot and humid outside, I think it'll do us some good to think ahead to some holiday crafting  - don't you agree?  (Anyone else ready to say SO LONG to 2020? Let's get this show on the road!) For the next three days we'll look at the BRAND NEW fall and winter release from Impression Obsession with inspiration, giveaways, and great new stamps and dies. Are you ready? We're going to start with one of my favorites!

Today's cards all feature the same adorable sentiment stamp, called Warm My Heart (C21309). I don't often plan entire cards around a specific sentiment, but this one is so versatile - I want to show you a bunch of different ways to use it. We're starting with this adorable new COFFEE CUP. Hello, CUTENESS. I know we'll be using this die set all year long. Coffee themed cards are always fun to make, and the Coffee To Go Die (DIE1010-P) is a great addition to my stash. It was fun to add some simple details to make this feel more festive for the holiday season, but this certainly doesn't have to be a Christmas card.

So surely this sentiment goes perfectly with coffee, but how about mittens too? After all, there are many ways to stay warm in winter! The next two cards are somewhat opposites of each other. I die cut the mittens twice, once from white and once from red cardstocks and then I mixed and matched them for two cards. 



And last, but certainly not least, how about a warm PIE? The Warm My Heart sentiment also coordinates perfectly here. Don't you love the stitched details on the pie? What a fun die set to whip up something sweet!
So here's the deal - today is day 1 of our 3 day Fall/Winter Release blog hop. Each day on the IO blog (or at the end of this post) you'll find a list of designers participating. Here's the best part - Each blog along the way will have a $25 gift certificate to be given away to a lucky commenter - so the more you comment through our Release Celebration the more chances to win! All comments for all of the event days will be open until Sunday July 19th at midnight CT. Winners will be announced on Tuesday July 21th, on the IO blog.

I'm so glad you stopped by today for some warm fuzzy cardmaking ideas! See you tomorrow!
