Day 5 {Tuesday with Tara take 378} Impression Obsession!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas sale, it’s been fun seeing the fresh inspiration daily and I love seeing so many fantastic companies featured!  Today I get to feature a company that’s been around for a really long time.  They were among the first I discovered when I began stamping and their beautiful designs, especially sentiments, have been favorites for me!  (A quick search confirms it for me- the company started in 1998, so not long after I began making cards!)

I was really excited when I started seeing Classic Pooh designs become stamps this year, and IO is one of the few companies doing it!  I’ve always had a soft spot for Eeyore so this set captured my heart.  It also has beautiful sentiments to coordinate- though it was tricky fitting one on the front of my card with this large image.

This is quite a simple 5.5×5.5″ card, with the focal image stamped in black on the smooth side of some watercolor card stock.   I colored loosely with watercolor pencil crayons and then worked on the base of the card while it dried.  I’ve used a snowflake stencil & Speckled Egg Distress Inks for the base card (Distress Oxide Spray on the Kraft base and Distress Ink for the edges around the image).    The patterned paper layer is from the sweet Knit Picky 6×6 pad by Lawn Fawn.    The sweet red paper bow was die cut from the Tim Holtz Christmas “Vault” set last year.

I had to do some careful partial inking of my sentiment to fit what I could on the card front… but I’ve included my favorite sentiment from the set on the inside of the card!

As part of the 12 Days of Christmas sale, IO will be 25% off throughout the sale period!  Go check out some of their beautiful designs, you’re sure to add some classics to your stamp collection!

Inky hugs,
