More IO Fun... for YOU!

Hi all.... the Impression Obsession fun continues bringing day 4 of the DT and FAN BLOG HOP! It started Monday and wraps up this Friday as a way to show off some of the new goodies that are now on the Impression Obsession store! Each day the IO DT is showing off some new stamps and you could win a $25 gift certificate each and every day!! All you need to do is leave some love in the form of a comment on each of the designers' blogs! You can click here to head on over to the IO Blog to find out all the details!

On to my creation!

Don't you just want to take a ride in THIS sweet hot air balloon? I think it is too stinking cute. It's one of Leigh Hannan's new images called Heart Balloon. Card Tidbits: This card is really quite simple! I stamped on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then grabbed a mix of Copic markers in red and pink tones. I used R01, R27, R29, R81, R83, R85. I shaded with BG0000. Add in some bling in the form of some mini rhinestones and... almost done! The ribbon is a mix of May Arts. The paper is The Paper Studio (red and white plaid) and Kaiser Craft Miss Nelly. Mat it up thanks to some Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur) I used the smallest Grand Oval Nestabilities die and the Classic Heart die. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Want to try to get your hands on some fun new images? Just hop on over and see these ladies and be sure to leave some love in the form of a comment!
