Impression Obsession Week at Stamper's Dream

Happy Monday!!!!

It is Impression Obsession week at Stamper's Dream!!! This week the design team will be showing you lots of fabulous creations with the clever Impression Obsession stamps that you can find at Stamper's Dream store.

Dontcha just loveee their stamps? Me too and I was delighted to work with this awesome Halloween set - An Apple a Day. I love this set because those candy apples remind me of a family that lived across the street from ours growing up. Every Halloween they would make candy apples to give to the trick-or-treaters and my brother (who is 11 years older than me) would send me over there twice just to get him an apple too!

I stamped the apples on red paper and then again on orange and yellow and paper pieced them. I added some shading and some orange and purple stickles for the candies. It has lots of sparkle and dimension in real life.

I added another strip of red paper along the side and crazy stitched it (which is really my good stitching so I am glad it is in vogue!) and then added the sentiment hanging on the ribbon at the top.

Now...do you want to see some more Impression Obsession Inspiration???? Here is the schedule for the week so you can follow along. (Rumor has it that Michelle might be offering some blog candy this week too!)

Monday - Charmaine, Michelle and Me
Tuesday - Amy, Denise, Charmaine, Michelle

What a fun card, Cammie! I love candy apples. Yum! And I'm with you on the stitching thing. I'm not very good at it either. Sewing isn't my forte. Enjoy your Labor Day! I'm at work at the moment but hope to get out of here early!

Oh Wow ... what a YUMMY card Cammie!! This brings memories back for me too! We always made "carmel" apples in the fall when I was growing up and I kept the tradition going with my daughter and now she is keeping it going with her children! Amazing how many memories a simple apple can provoke!!! Thanks!
