{ StencilGirl/Impression Obsession Blog Hop }

Hi and welcome to StencilGirl/Impression Obsession Blog Hop.

Here is a card I created using StencilGirl Striped Circles 6 stencil.

I stamped the background with Painted Stripes Cover-a-card Background stamp. I know, It's hard to see, but it's there. I wanted it to be light. I used white gesso to paint over the card front. I used Ranger Distress stain to add some blue color to the background. Love those layers. Then, I applied Whipped Spackle with  Striped Circles 6 stencil. Once that was dry, I added pink watercolor and pink splatters.

I stamped the flower from Fun Flowers on watercolor paper three times. I painted the layers with watercolor and then cut each section out. I layered them with 3D Foam squares from Therm O Web.

 The circles are from All In One Frames - Circles. I arranged them and then added the fussy cut flower. I die cut Hello from black foam that is backed with adhesive.

{ Mood Board Challenge }

I wanted to share a layout I created based on a Mood Board I created, as well. It’s for a crop this weekend and I am one of the hostesses. If you would like to join us there is still time. Stop by Victoria Marie Facebook group.

Everyday 2 by Daniela Dobson

I went through my Pinterest boards and used some of my favorite photos and shapes and added color swatches in my Adobe Photoshop.

Pinterest Mood Board by Daniela Dobson copy

For my layout I used all Elle’s Studio products. I just went through my stash and pulled all the colors from the mood board. I added some color to the background and used my favorite Whipped Spackle and a triangle stencil to add some triangles. I designed the spiral flower and a triangle background in my Silhouette Studio. You can find the tutorial for the spiral flower on my YouTube channel. Free triangle template can be found under my FREEBIES.

I used little notes, tags, die cuts and stamps. The buttons are from Pink Paislee. I just love how it turned out.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Trick or Treat }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Trick or Treat.

Here is my card.

Happy Halloween by Daniela Dobson

I had fun making this card. I got a Misti recently and I have to tell you that I love it. It is so nice to know where you are stamping, especially with these large Cover-a-card background stamps. For this one I used black cardstock and Cover-a-card Spider Web background stamp. I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder for the web. That was so easy stamping with the Misti. No guessing were to stamp. Look how wonderful that turned out.

File Sep 14, 6 09 40 PM

For the tag, I used Cover-a-card Candy Cane Stripes background stamp, using a Misti, and I only stamped top and bottom edge. I added some black cardstock and orange washi. The pumpkins and the sentiment are from Retro Pumpkins stamp set along with the sentiment. I stamped two big ones and one small one, fussy cut them and layered them using 3D foam squares. I did the same with the Halloween banner.
