Impression Obsession: Encouragement Challenge

The challenge is to use IO stamps to create a card with an encouragement theme.

4" square card.  Base is Kraft.
My Mind's Eye papers from the Love Nest stack.

Impression Obsession stamps used:  Reindeer Games WP249--The swirl stamp was used to create the background paper and the wing of the bird.  Cupcakes MC181 - I used this for the sentiment.  I masked off the 'S' in the word sweet and then put a diecut 'T' in it's place to change the sentiment just a little to fit my card :-) 

Accent Essentials Cricut cart - scallop square cut @ 3 1/4"
Simply Charmed Cricut cart - bird cut @2"
Plantin Schoolbook - 'T' cut @1/4", blurb in Kraft cut @2 1/2 using the fit-to-length feature

brown ink, pop dots, floss is DMC#504, button from my stash.

Be sure and check out  Impression Obsession stamps online.  They have great quality stamps and fast shipping!

Thanks for looking!  Good luck to all in the challenge!


  1. Masking the "s" and replacing it with a "t" was very clever. You're right..that makes the message fit in better with your card!

  2. OMGosh!!! How really cute, pretty, and so creative too with that 'T' switch!!! Thanks for playing Cindy, and good luck in the drawing too!!
