CAS (clean and simple) Impression Obsession Holiday Cards

Today I was inspired (again) by Kittie Caracciolo  and her lovely, simple, elegant cards... and decided to do a couple CAS Impression Obsession Holiday Cards. I will be entering them in the contest over at the Impression Obsession Blog. Fingers crossed! LOL

Holiday Bird Watching
This first card is some fun with die cuts and thinking like a cat... with birds on the sill.
I decided to go with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch size card with some nice merlot, celery and white for colors. 
The Dies used were all from Impression Obsession    (
Large Window with Window Box set: DIE103-ZZ 
"Thinking of You" is in the Greetings Top Edgers word set (3 words): DIE234-M
Cat set (6 kitties): DIE083-K
Small Birds Set (10 little birds) DIE154-A
Fancy Tree set (2 trees) DIE031-N
The trees were stamped green on light green with The Fluff Cover-A-Card stamp CC104

Snowy Night
My second card is a little darling  little 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch card. I got the idea of cutting off stuff from the Haunting Hill and using the church and house as something not Halloween from Cindy at the Impression Obsession booth at the Rubber Stamp Convention a few weeks ago. So many ideas have been flowing in since... 
The house and tree are parts of the bigger landscape die called Halloween Hill DIE029-P
The snow is just dots using my new Sharpie White Extra Fine Point Water-Based Pen- worked great!
The scallop square is from some old scrap Stampin' Up! Paper
I am sorry, I can't remember where I got the little words "Merry Christmas" from. 

The best thing is that all the IO dies cut sooooo well! I love how they are made and work so well. Thanks Impression Obsession!

Anyway... thanks for looking. Hope I've inspired you. 
Happy crafting,

PS Merry Christmas from our little neighbor dog, Creature. He's loving his new lumberjack tartan fleece winter coat from Auntie Makani. 

Love, Creature "woof" 
Wag, wag, wag, wag, wag...
