{ Card kit Monday–Just for you }

Hello. I have a brand new kit for you today, with a card and a video process (at the end of this post). I have two print and cut elements in this kit. The tag and “just for you” banner. If you don’t use print and cut feature you will just get the shapes of the tags. I will link a print and cut tutorial below that I found helpful. I printed the tag in black, but you can change it to any color you need. Same goes for the sentiment.

Just for you by Daniela Dobson

This card is based on one of my old cards that I created. The four harts I created several years ago and it’s free on my freebies and I am including it again in this set.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge with a Video – Say It Big }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Say It Big (phrases).

I have a video at the end of this post to show you how I created the card. I do have a YouTube channel where I share process videos. I haven’t posted a video in a long time and I finally did this week and again today. I added several older card videos I had, but never shared. Anyway, if you want to see how I make things, go and check it out.

Here is my card.

You are awesome by Daniela Dobson

My inspiration was Tuesday’s Take 2 from Cath’s blog. Beautiful pink flowers with a touch of yellow and orange. I gathered my supplies first, so I had an idea where I was going with a card. Over the weekend I made a sketch of this card, with lots of notes about what I wanted to do. Sometimes it happens just like that.

You are awesome close by Daniela Dobson

Impression Obsession stamps and dies:
H18005 Mosaic Tile
D9774 Burlap Flag
CL601 Grunge Building Borders
Flag Die Set DIE015-F

I started with some Gesso and color shine and built it up from there. Watch the video to see how the card came together.

{ Card kit Monday }

Hello, happy Monday. I almost forgot to make a card for today, but I did, and I even have a video to go with it. After I cut my pieces it took me 12 minutes to make the card. I used the same kit from last week – Card kit Monday Banners.

Lucky by Daniela Dobson

I cut one large banner this time instead of several small ones. I cut two flowers, but enlarged one of them a little bit. All the other elements are the same, except I changed the size and orientation of the stripe and the scalloped piece.
The stamp is from the brand new August Memory Keepers Studio from Technique Tuesday. I will be sharing more projects with that set.

Once again, if you make something with the kit please share and let me know. I would love to see. You can download the kit HERE.

{ Back to School Deco Foil Cards }

I created these back to school cards for Therm O Web blog using Deco Foil. I would love it if you can stop by and check out the step by step instructions  with photos on how I created them.
Link to my post ----> Back to School Deco Foil Cards

You can really see the foil in the close up photos. I used Deco Foil liquid adhesive for the lines on the background and the apple. The apple I cut with my Silhouette and I have a free file for download.

For this card I used Deco Foil White Foam adhesive and I die cut the numbers and applied the foil over the top.
