{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Orange }

Hello and welcome to another Impression Obsession DT challenge. Make a card using Impression Obsession stamps and post a link to your creations on our challenge post at Impression Obsession blog. If you play you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

My card base is stamped with  Cover-a-Card Swirls and Stars CC054 that was sprayed with Clearsnap Gingersnap and Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. The punched paper strips are stamped with Cover-a-Card Screen CC049 in Clearsnap Colorbox Dye ink Tangerine. The card edges are inked with Clearsnap Colorbox Classic Pigment Ink in Sweet Melon.
  The birthday candles, stamped with Clearsnap Colorbox Dye ink Tangerine, and the sentiment, stamped with Clearsnap Colorbox Dye Ink in Wicked Black are from On This Day WP328 stamp set.
The butterfly is Slhouette 15 D5565 and is sprayed with Clearsnap Ginger Snap , stamped on cardstock and cut out.

I added a little pin to the butterfly with Therm O Web Zots - medium. I just created a little Zots sandwich for the pin. The Zots are super sticky and are perfect.

I added the little jewels with Therm O Web Zots for Bling. They are minuscule and perfect for the little jewels. I know that some of the jewels come with adhesive, but I have always added my own because the original adhesive is not that strong. I used Therm O Web Sticky Dot Runner to adhere all the paper elements on my card.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designer's blogs for inspiration!

    Pretty card! Thanks for the info on the Zots. I use them all the time but wasn't aware of the tiny ones for bling.
