The “Obsession” Becomes Literal…

Impression Obsession has always been a well-loved brand at Paper Anthology, but this season they’ve really outdone themselves. Of course there are some terrific single stamps (like Mountain View, featured in the card above) and a line of autumn and winter Serendipity Stamps that will be lots of fun to color. But today’s post focuses on IO’s unique and innovative line of Slimline-sized stamps with nature-inspired designs that can be used on their own or combined to make beautiful scenes.

The series is called Slim Scenes, but of course these stamps could be used with amazing effect on ANY size of card! But they were designed especially for the very hot slimline card size, so they’re quite large (measuring 8.25″ in length) and you’ll find a full-sized stamp platform, like the Regular Hero MISTI, very helpful for making a good impression. Many designs feature several stamps, including Mountain Layers, Treeline Layers, Hillside Duo, Treeline Duo, Town Duo (see the sample, below) others, like Snowy Night, Cloudy Sky and Norway Spruce are singles. The Winter Greetings Sentiment Set coordinates with all of them; and dies like Pinkfresh Studios Slim Edgers and Slim Stitched Rectangles are also very complementary.

Need more inspiration? Every individual listing has at least one beautiful card made by the Impression Obsession design team! Click any of the links above and then checkout the thumbnails below the main listing!
