{ Impression Obsession - All About the Dies - Day 3 }

Hi and welcome to day 3 of our die blog hop. Impression Obsession now manufactures and sells Dies. Our dies are US-made steel dies and are compatible with most tabletop die cut machines. Here is your chance to win some of our dies.

Here is my card combining several different dies to create this little flower arrangement.

Happy day by Daniela Dobson

I love that all the dies are connected together. You run them through with different patterned papers and you are done. I attached each flower and button with Zots by Therm O Web and added some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye. I added twine to the buttons.

The sentiment and the little banner is from Banners and Greetings stamp set. For the background I used a polar grid mask that I created in my Silhouette Studio. I used Heidi Swapp color shine to mist over the polar grid.

Here are some other creations that I shared on my blog.

  52. OMG, I stumbled upon this blog by error and I am glad I did. I am not a card maker but after reading through a few of these awesome blogs I could be a convert. I don't own any dies so to win some would certainly be a blessing since I do know how expensive they are. Your work is just beautiful and inspiring.
