Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge

Hi Everyone,
It is Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge time again. Boy, those two weeks go by fast. The theme for this challenge is Beachy. That should get you thinking about summer. As you may know from the previous post, I broke my arm on Friday. And fortunately, I made my challenge cards before I fell off the ladder. I used the stamp Beach Collage. I made two different cards. One was stamped on white CS and the other on Bordering Blue (SU) CS
The image was heat embossed using black pigment ink and clear embossing powder. I added color to the white CS with chalks. I cut out the image and and layered with Chocolate Chip CS and made the card from Blush Blossom (both from SU). I added pearl accents.

The second card was also heat embossed on the Bordering Blue CS. I layered with Old Olive (SU) and Dream Street Papers. I added some twine and real shell pieces.

Today is also my 25th Wedding Anniversary! Wow, 25 years. My how times flies.

Well, I will try keep you updated on how I am coming along trying to make cards with one left hand. My bbf, Mikal, picked up a cutter thing for me that I can operate with one hand. I tried using a tape runner left-handed today and did pretty good. Wish me luck on my left-handed journey. LOL. Hope you are having a great day.



  1. These are super soft and beautiful! LOVE the details--pearls and the shells! LOVE it! Good luck with your left hand.

    Congrats on 25 years! How wonderful! Blessings for 25 for years:)

  2. I always loved this image! Love the pearls and the soft coloring! Thanks for playing along with the IO Challenge!

  3. Well Karen ,we have more in common than our image on our cards! I fell of a ladder and broke my wrist and tore my rotater cuff, but it was two years ago. I feel your pain. I do hope you heal fast. Its no fun!
    Lovely cards!
