{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - To Die For (diecuts) }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – To Die For.

For this card I was playing around with the new background dies and die cut it from watercolor paper. This Floral Background die is beautiful. Because the watercolor paper is pretty thick some of the items stayed in place and some I took out. I had the blue striped background laying around from another project that didn’t work out so I thought I would pair my three favorite colors together with a touch of gold.

Give Thanks by Daniela Dobson

I painted the Floral Background with watercolor. I die cut the Patchwork Leaves from white cardstock and colored them with Distress Ink. Give Thanks is die cut from gold paper that is backed with Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive from Therm O Web. This gives the die dimension and a sticky back.

{ My Favorite Things sketch and color challenge }

When I saw the Beast Friends from My Favorite Things I just had to have them. They are adorable! This summer we went to Disney World and took a ride on Expedition Everest at Disney Animal Kingdom. It was a rough and scary ride. Alex, who doesn’t even like roller coasters, had taken several fast rides over our 4 day adventure including Test Track and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. He was not too happy about it. We did get him a cute Yeti after the ride to help him forget all about it.

Beastie by Daniela Dobson

I used the colors from Color Challenge #55 and sketch 302. I used Kraft as my base and a strip across the card, as in the sketch. I found the striped paper that matched the color perfectly. I colored the Yeti with my Prismacolor Pencils. I die cut him and used 3D foam squares from Therm O Web to pop him up. Same with the sentiment strip. The circle is from Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 6. I did add Whipped Spackle with a stencil to the background and some sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Have a great Tuesday!

{ 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 used Big Butterfly stamp that I stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The image and the background is colored with watercolor crayons.

In my thoughts by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the sentiment and die cut “thoughts” from black foam. I added some flowers and a leaf to the center of the butterfly. Quick and easy.

{ Impression Obsession and MISTI Hop }

Hi and welcome to Impression Obsession and MISTI blog hop.

Here is what I created.

I love that I can position my stamp exactly where I want and have a perfect placement. I started with Knotty Wood background stamp.

For my main image I stamped the leaves from Oak Set. I used three different ink colors for the leaf and I fussy cut around it. I layered two leaves together. 

I stamped one of the leaves from Leaf Stems stamp set. I colored the leaves with watercolor. I added watercolor sprinkles to the background.

I added some Whipped Spackle with a stencil to the background. The sentiment is from More Basic Greetings stamp set. 

Wednesday, October 12th we will draw from everyone who leaves a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop to give away a mini MISTI and a $25 Impression Obsession gift certificate. Winners will be posted on the IO & MSP blogs and FB pages.
