{ Pineapple and NBUS #7 }

I can’t believe I almost didn't see Darnell's NBUS #7 challenge. If you don’t know what it is you need to check it out. My never-before-used-schtuff – these stamps by Concord & 9th: Pop Art Pineapple I got at Paper Source months ago. Finally, a perfect opportunity to get them inked.

You're sweet by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the pineapple in two different colors. The last one is cut out and I used 3D foam squares to pop it up. I did tuck in a little bit of yellow thread for some added interest and because it was right next to me. At the end I splattered some Ranger Distress Stain in Shabby Shutters. I used CAS(E) This Sketch and Color Throwdown #407.

{ August Stamp Highlight Project for Elle’s Studio }

I have a blog post over on Elle’s Studio blog highlighting Notes From Today stamp set along with Work Hard stamp set and our exclusive August kit and extras

This little layout is a part of my travelers notebook called “Hello Summer”. I have been documenting my summer for several weeks now, with different prompts each week.  This page is titled “day in the life”. I have shared some of mypages in Instagram.

Day in the life by Daniela Dobson

I layered my photo on a piece of patterned paper from Sunny Days 6x6 Paper Stack on the left side. Underneath I used Notes From Today stamp set and a clock from Work Hard stamp. The little squares with the check mark were perfect and I used those to describe each photo above.

On the right bottom of the page I created a little pocket using my sewing machine to tuck in little tags I created. I stamped on the outside with a large stamp from Work Hard stamp set. I took several tags from Work Hard Journaling Tags and added my journaling for that day. For the tabs I used die cuts from the August 2016 Kit that I stapled to the top.

Here is the front of my Travelers Notebook that I handmade myself. I used a little label from Sunny Days Small Blank Labels and a stamp from Shine Bright stamp set. The front is printed on my printer and then I applied Deco Foil with the laminator (flamingo and circles at bottom). The polka dots and “hello” are painted with watercolor.

Products used: Notes From Today stamp, Work Hard stamp, Shine Bright stamp, Sunny Days 6×6 Paper Stack, August 2016 Kit, Let’s Eat Bits and Pieces, Work Hard Journaling Tags, Letter & Number Stickers Pink, and Sunny Days Small Blank Labels

Hi and welcome to CardMaker Design Team and Momenta Blog Hop.

Here is my project.

Beautiful by Daniela Dobson

I used a butterfly mask and ink to create the butterfly. I cut it out and adhered it to the card with foam adhesive. I layered several tags and a little brass key charm. The little border on the bottom and the sentiment were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

{ August 2016 Memory Keepers Studio by Technique Tuesday }

Our August release of Memory Keepers Studio – Perfectly Wonderful and Fresh Cut Studio – Birch Borders is available now. Plus, check out all that is new and available for August.

Here is what I created with the set.

Live life by Daniela Dobson

I lightly drew a circle with a pencil and then stamped around the circle. I colored the leaves with Prismacolor pencils. I added enamel dots that I created with Nuvo Crystal Drops. If you follow me on Instagram you are aware of my obsession with these little embellishments. I have photos and a short video on how I make them.
