{ Impression Obsession giveaway }

I really wanted to do a tutorial for this card, but my desk is a mess (see photo below) and I didn't have enough time. Plus, I have never done a video tutorial, and that would have been a total disaster. I need to plan this better.
I was taking a little break so I made this card for 2S4Y # 56.  A box of goodies arrived from Impression Obsession . The cards for CHA with the NEW stamps will be shown on Design Team blogs starting July 26.


I stamped the background with Cover-a-Card Distressed Corduroy (CC047), first horizontal then vertical. I clear embossed Cover-a-Card Large (CC007) on top of that and sprayed the card with blue Shimmerz spray. I added left over strip of crepe paper streamer to a pink strip of patterned paper that I stitched to the card.
I stamped Butterfly Scene (G1753) on cardstock, cut it out and sprayed lightly with yellow Glimmer Mist. I added a crochet flower that my mom made.


I am giving away this Cover-a-Card Large Dots (CC007) cling-backed background stamp. The stamp is 5.75 x 5.75 inches. Leave me a comment and let me know if you use stamps on your projects. I will pick a winner at the end of the week.

 Oh, yes, photo of the only clear space:

  7. I didn't use stamps when I first started creating cards. I just couldn't get a good image and got frustrated. Then, with lots of practice, several bottles of Baileys Irish Cream (okay, maybe not all at once) and better quality rubber, I now am comfortable and will stamp anything that doesn't move ... and maybe even if it does move. GRIN. LOVE your card creation, Daniela.

  12. I love your card! Awesome butterfly. As a beginner, I don't have a lot of stamps or other supplies yet, but I love using stamps on cards and layouts. My favorite use is to create my own patterned papers.

  17. What a lovely card...I use stamps in almost all my cards, also in scrapbook pages. I use them as the focal point as well as in the background. I use them to make my own paper when I can't find the right style or color I need.

  26. Your card is beautiful, but I have to follow-up by saying you have NO IDEA how much better I feel by seeing your desk! Thanks for posting that!!! Whew! My area looks like that all the time. I have paper flying everywhere and my last post I made a card from my scraps just so I didn't have to move them to the scrap box...ha! (Trust me there are plenty more over there to move) I am very very very addicted to stamps! Much to my handsome hubs dismay! ha!
