Sweet Thoughts!

Hi all! Happy Thursday! I'm back today with more fun from Impression Obsession and today it is all about "Sweet Thoughts!" That's the focus of this week's challenge, so grab your IO stamps and get those creative juices flowing! You can find out more about this week's challenge by clicking HERE and heading over to the IO blog!

On to my creation!
When I first set eyes on this darling little fruit and veggie container, I knew that I wanted to stamp off some of those sweet strawberries to set inside! And, to add dimension, I stamped my container and then stamped over top using the Cover-A-Card background called Distressed Lines.  I stamped using Vivid! Taupe ink and then, while the ink was still drying, I went over the lines with a blender pen to add a little shading in places.I stamped the stamp Three Strawberries a handful of times, colored them up with watercolor pencils and then cut them out layering them behind my little berry basket. The rest is adding a sentiment on a strip of paper -- the stamp used is called You're a Sweetie. I made my circle card thanks to a large circle die cut and matted it up with smaller shapes and a little doily. Add a ribbon, a button and OF COURSE some glitter glue and... ta da! All done!

Here's a close up of my berries -- too cute!

One thing I forgot to mention is -- if you play along with us -- the randomly drawn winner gets a $25 shopping spree over at the Impression Obsession store! All you need to do is link up your creation over on the January 17th post there.

Need some inspiration? Hop on over and see these IO designers and their "sweet" creations!

Thanks for stopping by! See you back here soon!
