You will find the new stamps HERE.  They are available now in the Impression-Obsession store.

For my card today, I used three of the fabulous new floral letters.

Impression-Obsession stamps: 
Floral Y D12062
Floral O D12052
Floral U D12058
Life Stuff Sentiments CL491 (Celebrating)
Happy Birthday 1  C14778 (inside)
Square Vine Frame F12070 (inside)

On bristol vellum card stock, I stamped the Floral Letters to form 'YOU.'  I used my Misti to help with placement and alignment.  I water colored the letters with Arteza Real Brush Markers, using a water brush, to get the faded look on the insides of the letters.  I love the vivid colors in these markers, and that combined with water, I can achieve many different depths of color and highlighting.

I painted a white scrap with the same pink, and when dry, I stamped the word 'Celebrate' from part of one of the stamps in the Life Stuff Sentiments set, and lined it with striped pp, then added it above the YOU with foam tape.  This set has sentiments for many occasions, and I find myself reaching for it often.  

I cut a little off the stamped panel, and added it to a pink A2 card front.  I added a narrow strip of the same striped pp to the bottom.  Some clear sequins finish the front pf my card.

For the inside, I used the Happy Birthday 1 stamp, with one side of the Square Vine Frame, along with a strip of the pp and sequins.

I hope you are inspired by my card.  There are so many fabulous new stamps in this release.  Be sure to check them out at the Impression-Obsession store HERE.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
