It looks like a cupcake day to me!

The Impression Obsession challenge this time was tags! And I've found that they are so much fun to make!! I was in need of some birthday tags, so what's more perfect for birthdays than cupcakes??

These cupcakes were stamped on lt. pink cardstock and then again on white cardstock. Once the cupcake tops were colored, I cut them out and paper pieced them to the pink paper and added some clear Stickles for the cherry on top. Very simple, but still cute, I think.

So, are you craving cupcakes now??
Don't forget to check out the Design Team ladies--they have tags, too!!

Warm Thoughts

I have no idea what this technique is called, but I stamped the flower stamp in white pigment ink first, then colored them in with Prismacolor colored pencils. I have to say that I *love* the result! Used a bit of clear Stickles for the centers and stamped the saying for a nice thinking of you card.

Need a gift idea? The holidays are right around the corner (can you believe it's already OCTOBER??) and I'm always looking for new ideas for handmade gifts to give my family and friends, so the Impression Obsession challenge this time is to offer some ideas for this holiday season.

My mom loves butterflies, so I immediately thought of the butterfly sets IO offers and had to use them with my mom in mind. This framed artwork actually uses 3 different clear sets, but you can substitute just about anything for the butterflies such as flowers, snowflakes or shells. Add your favorite IO sentiment and you've got the perfect gift for that special someone!

Make sure to visit the design team blogs for awesome gift ideas!
