{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Oh My Stars }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Oh My Stars.

Here is a card I created for our DT challenge.

Best wishes by Daniela Dobson

I went with a different color scheme for this card. Pink and green. I really like it. I layered some bits and pieces of ephemera. I die cut two stars from Scribble Stars. One from gold cardstock and one from white cardstock that I painted pink with watercolor. I stamped, watercolored and fussy cut two different images from Red White & Blue stamp set. I used 3D foam squares to pop up the pinwheel in the center of the stars. I added a button, sequins, washi tape and twine to finish the card. The sentiment is from Everyday Words.

{ ONE PRODUCT, THREE WAYS: STANLEY ALPHABET STAMPS }

If you checked out the new projects created by our design team with the new June releases, you may have seen that we’re going just a bit crazy over the new guy in the shop— Stanley. Our new perfect alphabet stamp comes in both a solid and outline, and today I am sharing how I used them on my project! Check out the blog to see what Neela and Laura created.

EllesStudio-DanielaDobson-HelloFriend-01

I used the solid alphabet to stamp on white cardstock with blue ink. The easiest way to do this is to lay the  stamps, still on the transparent package backing, face up on your desktop, ink them carefully by dabbing your ink pad to the stamp surface, and pressing a piece of cardstock on the surface of the stamps, applying pressure evenly all over to the stamped image.

EllesStudio-DanielaDobson-HelloFriend-02

To embellish the front I added a journaling card with stamped “hello,” using the same blue ink and then outlining some of the letters with black ink using the Stanley outline alphabet. I added “friend” using the White Puffy Alphabet Stickers to a blue June Label.

EllesStudio-DanielaDobson-HelloFriend-03

How will you use the Stanley alphabet stamps on your projects? Be sure to share your creation on Instagram, using the hashtag #EllesStudio for a chance to be featured here on our blog, and win a gift certificate to the shop!

{ Father’s Day with Gina K Therm O Web }

I have a Father’s Day card on Therm O Web blog today using Gina K products.

Father's Day by Daniela Dobson

I used Happy Father's Day - Digital Cut File from Technique Tuesday. I cut it from Deco Foil Peelnstick Toner Sheets using my Silhouette Cameo. Once that was cut, I ran it through the laminator with Turquoise Sea Deco Foil from Gina K Designs. “Happy” is from Mom’s Day stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

{ Thanks card with Maya Road }

Hello and happy Wednesday. I have a blog post today on Maya Road Blog.

Our focus this June is CHIPBOARD and we have a special going on all month. Make sure you visit the store and use coupon code CHIPCHIP to get 30% off all chipboard.

For my card today I used Mixed Scallop Mini Triangle Banner. I love using chipboard just as is. In this case I used it as a base for my flower bouquet.

MayaRoad-DanielaDobson-Thanks-01

I stamped the images using Rose Garden Sentiments Stamp Set and then I fussy cut them. Aren't they beautiful I just love that stamp set. The card base is made up of bits and pieces of patterned paper. The Mixed Scallop Mini Triangle Banner has two holes in it that I thread Twine Cording - Blackberry through and tied it into a bow. I tucked Vintage Pearl Pins - Hot Pink through the center.

MayaRoad-DanielaDobson-Thanks-02

The center flower is adhered to the card 3D foam squares for dimension. It gives it a little lift so it appears to be hanging over the chipboard banner. I added enamel dots from my stash mimicking some of the colors in the card. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set to the bottom right of the card using black ink.

MayaRoad-DanielaDobson-Thanks-03

Click on the photo and it will take you to all the flowers. Use coupon code CHIPCHIP.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Friendly Florals }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Friendly Florals.

Here is a card I created for our DT challenge.

Thanks by Daniela Dobson

Ever since I got the Misti I wanted to try stamping in a circle and I finally did. It was so easy and fun. I lightly traced a circle on my white piece of cardstock. In addition, I made a template on a piece of vellum separating the circle in sections. I saw a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and I loved how easy this was.

Stamping with Misti by Daniela Dobson

After I stamped all the flowers and leaves with black ink I colored all the images with Prismacolor Pencils. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to fill in some of the empty spaces. I love this so much and want to make more using different flowers.

Thanks close by Daniela Dobson

The stamps I used today are Banner & Blossoms and Banners & Blossoms matching die set. One little flower came from Flower Vases stamp set.

You can find all our new additions for May HERE.

Here is what I created with Bucket List - Memory Keepers Studio.

Super Memorable by Daniela Dobson

Everything on this layout is somewhat old and from my stash. Stuff I have been collecting and not using. I love the way it turned out. When I saw the stamp set I knew exactly what photos I wanted for this layout.
At the top of the page and right above the photos I stamped “Super Memorable” with black ink. On the library card I added “Focus on the finish”. “Lessons Learned” came from another stamp set called Today Tabs. Under the main image of the stamp set on the website you can see examples created with the set and suggestions of other sets you can use or that might work well together.

Super Memorable close by Daniela Dobson

I stamped “keep going” and “highlights” and cut them out. The circle fits one inch punch perfectly.

Here is what the stamp set and the DIY die look like. Pretty fun!

Our Animal House stamp set for may is Leonardo the Lion Stamp Set - Animal House - May 2017. You have to read his biography!!! He has a matching die set, as well. I colored him with Prismacolor pencils.
