Happiness with Friends


Hi all! It was my turn to host Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday, which means I get to show off an IO creation. So... on we go! If you are ever looking for inspiration, you need to check out the IO blog, there's something new all the time to get the creative juices flowing! You can find it HERE!

Recently, Impression released a series of silhouettes and gosh, they are CUTE! I just love them for all occasion cards because honestly, they bring a smile to my face! 


I started by stamping the background called Textured Scalloped Background in a Summer Sky ink. Over top, I stamped the silhouette called Fun Friends using Versafine Black Onyx. I added some stitching and some bling on the little flowers and the rest was matting it up! I added the sentiment Happiness along the side. Add fun patterned paper, a rhinestone with shimmery ribbon and... that, my friends, is it! This card is almost a 10 minute card and is a great one to have around for those times when you just need to get a word of encouragement in the mail! 

Here's a close up of these kiddos -- aren't they cute?

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a little bit of time with me! I have to say that I used this oldie but goodie because right now Impression Obsession is gearing up for it's next big release and man, oh man, are there some GREAT images that will soon be released! I can't wait to show you! 

Hope your week is ending up on a good note! I'll see you back here soon!

Happiness shared when hearts are paired working together to benefit another came so true this morning that I had to come back to your site to comment. Picked up an Angel Tree tag today and helped with OCC boxes to give extra appreciation umph of your card's creative message, Julie. Thanks for reminding all of this season when the little things make the big things special, too. Continue to celebrate with thanksgiving. Toys for Tots boxes are bright around town, too. Keep Looking Up!

Julie, Textured Scalloped Background in Summer Sky ink certainly is an eye catcher! Is a tutorial some place in blog land? Almost a dreamy sight after nights of blowing swirling snow in snowblind driving mode. Just remember those carefree days! mt23stamperatyahoo Blessings, Keep Looking UP!

OOOH! Love this! That background is awesome. Thanks for a summer-y image as it drops below freezing on a regular basis around here. Hope you are warm & well.

Great Card! Love the silhouette stamped over that background stamp. It is really nice in blue! Also love the vertical sentiment. Thanks for sharing.
