Have You Seen Impression Obsession's May Limited Edition Stamp Set?

 Did you know that Impression Obsession has begun a new monthly limited edition red rubber stamp set? This month features the sweetest hummingbird and hibiscus stamps, and I am so happy to share it with you today!

I decided to go bright and bold on today's hummingbird cards. This stamp set is a lot of fun, because whether your style is clean and simple, layered, traditional, if you like to color or you don't. . . .there's something here for everyone. 
Today's cards came together quite simply. To create this look, start out with white cardstock and a black ink pad to create the floral backgrounds. The hibiscus look beautiful colored, or stamped in colorful ink - but I was going for bold, clean and simple here. 

To make the hummingbirds, I stamped them onto some watercolor paper that I had previously covered in liquid dye ink. (Jane Davenport Inkredible Inks at Spellbinders) Since the watercolor paper has texture, I suggest using a MISTI or stamping platform to really get nice impressions on the paper. I fussy cut the hummingbirds, but there is also a coordinating die available to make the cutting quick and simple. 

There are a few GREAT things about IO's new limited edition stamp kits.

  • There are no commitments or clubs to join. (Although I think you'll love the stamps every single month!)
  • There are coordinating dies offered.
  • Each month's stamps come in clamshell packaging and include full color inspiration.
If you love red rubber stamps, this is a fun way to grab a new limited edition set each month. But don't hesitate because at the end of the month, the stamp set retires to make way for a new monthly kit.

This week the Impression Obsession design team is celebrating the May limited edition kit with a weeklong blog hop.
