{ Spring watercolor card with Mixed Media sheets }

I am sharing a project on Therm O Web blog using watercolor on Mixed Media sheets. I love it. I have lots of tips on the blog. They are so easy to work with.

The white die cut frame is brand new from Impression Obsession. It’s called Square Frame.

{ Happy Birthday Elle’s Studio }

I am sharing two different cards today (Elle’s Studio blog)  that I created using our Happy Birthday mini collection. This mini collection is perfect for birthday cards, of course.

EllesStudio-DanielaDobson-Birthday card set-01

For my first card I used the 4″ x 6″ journaling tag as a base for patterned paper on the card front. The 3″ x 4″ journaling tag was trimmed a little at the bottom to allow for some hand cut banners from Sunny Days 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack to peek through.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added twine to the front. For an added touch I finished off the page with sequins and some paint splatters.

For my second card, I stamped the candles and the balloons from the Happy Birthday Stamp onto white cardstock and cut them out. I adhered one journaling tag from the Happy Birthday Journaling Tags with strips of the striped journaling tag on each side.

The candles and the balloons were adhered to the front, and I added “strings” to the balloons with a fine tipped black pen. I stamped “happy birthday” and confetti stars all over the front.

{ The Card Concept #69 }

I know, totally random blog post today, but I wanted to play in The Card Concept #69 challenge. I created a mixed media background to share on my Instagram earlier. While I was reading blogs I came across the challenge and had a great idea.

Celebrating you by Daniela Dobson

I have been organizing my stamps and I came across this wonderful Lovely Lilacs that I wanted to use. I heat embossed with white embossing powder and used my watercolor to color the image. You can watch the video or go to my Instagram to view it.

The sentiment is from Life Stuff Sentiments. I heat embossed the tag with Quatrefoil Cover-a-card background. The bread tag is one of my free silhouette cut files that you can download here. I was inspired by the Lilacs in the photo.

We are still celebrating our 10 year birthday at Elle’s Studio. Make sure you check out a fun birthday collection.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Not So Moody Blues }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Not So Moody Blues.

Here is a card I created.

Smile by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the background with Quatrefoil background stamp and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sprinkled the background with Ken Oliver Color Burst in Ultramarine Blue and water.

For the flower tag I stamped Rambling Roses in black ink and colored the image with watercolor pencils. I added  a few scraps under the flower tag that I had laying on my desk, including washi tape and some sewing thread. The sentiment is stamped with Outline Alphabet that I colored with watercolor pencils, as well.
