Love is All You Need!

Hi all and welcome to the very first Impression Obsession Challenge for the new year! This one is especially fun because the Design Team is showing off some of the new images that will soon be released by Impression Obsession during Winter CHA! Woo hoo! Today's challenge is about love, hearts, and valentines! You can read up on the challenge HERE. Remember, there's a $25 gift certificate to the IO Store on the line! :-)

So, here's a peek at my creation...
The paper cone and flowers are from a new clear stamps set called Lighthearted Lines  and the sentiment is called A Loving Note. Again, both will be available soon!

Creating the card was rather simple... stamp, cut out the cone and the flowers, color with Copic markers (RV32, RV34, RV02,RV00, YG00, YG03, YG63). Frame it thanks to Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. (On the scallops, I embossed and then sanded the edges to reveal the paper's core. On the oval, I left the die on, and sponged on some Angel Pink Memento Ink). I also used some foam tape to pop up some of the flowers as well. Add some stitching, linen ribbon, a pearl and a punched oval for the sentiment and... done!

Here's a close up!

Want to see what the rest of the IO Design Team crafted with a little love in mind? Hop on over and see....
