My IO Fave!

Hi all and Happy Thursday! Time for another Impression Obsession challenge and this one will have you turning and pulling out your favorite IO stamp. It was a tough call for me I tell ya! If you show off your favorite IO stamp, you could win a few free stamps with the help of a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession Store! Click HERE to check out all the challenge details!

On to my creation!

I absolutely love this stamp called Garden Gate -- it is, in my humble opinion, too sweet for words! It is a blast to color and leaves you with that peaceful easy feeling! ;-) I colored this up with a mix of Copic Markers and then, when I was finished, I did add some razzle dazzle thanks to some glittle glue (Diamond Stickles) -- although you really can't tell from my picture! I did mount my image on a die cut shape that was cut with the Spellbinders Labels Eight and then embossing with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Add some hot pink ribbon, a light green card base and some bling and.... ta da!!!! Fini!

Not to enable you too badly -- but if you like the stamp above, you should check out Garden Fence as well. It's also a favorite of mine! ;-)

You'll have to make the rounds and see what the other IO gals picked for their favorite stamp! I know I will love to check out which stamps they love to turn to! ;-)
