{ Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday }

It is my turn today to share a card I made using Impression Obsession stamps and dies. Here is what I created.

I have been wanting to use this Leaf Set by Dina Kowal. It’s a layered leaf set with four different sentiments. Here is my card.

Change by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the bottom of the card with Herringbone Cover-a-card stamp and Chocolate Ink. I added a piece of patterned paper to the top.

To stamp the leaves I used several different colors: Melon, Chocolate, Tan, Chartreuse, Shamrock. In addition, I used Leaf Stems stamp set. I stamped three different images and cut them out. I used 3D foam squares to adhere the circle and Mini Tape runner from Therm O Web to add all the other elements.

Have a great Thursday.

Today is World Card Making Day and it’s a holiday created by card makers for card makers.

Hello by Daniela Dobson

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – You’re An Animal }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – You’re An Animal (any type of animal).

Here is a cute little card I created using Beary Sweet stamp set and matching dies.

Birthday wishes by Daniela Dobson

Isn’t he adorable? I love that this stamp set is perfect for any occasion. You can just change what the bear is holding. I loved coloring him with Prismacolor pencils.

I layered several different pieces of washi tape on the white background and I painted over it with Gesso to tone it down. I used one of the die cut frames from All-in-One Frames - Rectangles 2. The die cut bear is adhered to the card with 3D foam squares from Therm O Web.

Today I am sharing a layout on Elle’s Studio blog created with the new September kit and extras, along with Family Fun collection. Stop by the blog to see how this came together.
