{ Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge #8 - Gift set and Giveaway }

Our challenge was to create a stamped gift set. I have actually made this set three different times and gave it away as gifts. One of the sets was for a Gratitude Wrap swap that Melissa Goodsell hosted. I will show you what I created in another post. For this gift set I used white greeting cards, Scenic Route patterned paper and Impression Obsession stamps. Simple as that. A stamp from Weeds and Wildflowers was my main image and then I added a sentiment from Anytime Sentiments. I used a tag stamp from A Gift For You set and cut it out and added it to the Avery tag. You could make or buy a little gift box to put this in, but I gave it in a gift bag wrapped with tissue paper. Check out what the other DT members created for their challenge to make a gift set: Dina, Kelli, Deborah, Julie, Laura. Now for the giveaway. World card making day is getting closer, only 3 days. Be sure to head over to the website to celebrate and share your creations! To celebrate here I'm having a giveaway, I have 2 issues of Paper Crafting 3 ways to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment and I'll draw 2 winners Saturday! Here's the Paper Crafts issue. See that baby frame on the cover, well, I made it! This is my first cover!
We are back from Arizona. I will share with you the super cool scrapbook stores I visited next time. Check out Sonda's brand new card kit club CupCards {to go}. Make sure you stay tuned to the site for the details and while you're waiting, join the message board and get to know everyone!

  21. Daniela, the card set is just lovely! I am in the process of making my dear, dear Sister-in-law a set of cards and I have to say that they are not nearly as wonderful as yours. BUT, my SIL thinks I do the bestest so I'm not going to tell her about yours!

    Thank you so much for the comment about your trip; I am delighted that you had a wonderful time and that you made it safely back home. I could just picture Alex when he got home...familiar places for him and from what you described he feels "at home" at home! Bless his sweet, sweet heart! Give him one big hug from me!
