Merry Christmas in July!

It's that time again! The Impression Obsession team is celebrating Christmas this time around and we're using *NEW* holiday images. Fun, right? When I first saw these adorable penguins, I knew I *had* to use them right away. And the background is a brand new huge stamp, too! Go check out the IO blog to see more info on all of the backgrounds and the new awesome Mega Mount.

We have a new guest designer, too! Her name is Kathy Menzies and we're so glad she's with us!! Don't forget to visit Kathy and all of the team members for some amazing Christmas inspiration.

We're looking shimmery!

The Impression Obsession Design Team is teaming up with Shimmerz all this week. It's an official IO/Shimmerz DT swap! Check out the fun and see what kind of sparkle these teams create when Impression Obsession stamps collide with Shimmerz paints!

We've enjoyed a week full of shimmery impressions and here's what I came up with! This is a brand spanking new IO image by Gary Robertson --- is this a cute gingerbread house or what?? I colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils, then used Angel Wings Shimmerz on the snow(or maybe it's icing??) and Gold Glimmer on the tree cookie out in front. I cut out the image and attached it with some double sided foam tape and layered it on some card panels. Very "sweet" and simple, just my style..hehehe...

Be sure to go check out the Shimmerz and IO blogs to see all of the beautiful work from the entire week! What a fun swap this was--hope to do it again!!

A big thank you to Stacey at Shimmerz from all of us at Impression Obsession!!
