{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Favorite Technique }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Favorite Technique!

Our challenge starts today, February 20, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, February 26, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between February 20-26. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

This time my favorite technique is die cutting. Especially stamping on a coordinating die. As much as I love to fussy cut, it’s just easier to die cut.

Here is my card featuring brand new die and a matching stamp set:

CS540 Bunch of Blossoms CLEAR STAMPS

Thank you by Daniela Dobson 0314

I started by adding washi tape to the bottom alternating with a striped stamp from Basic Borders 1 stamp set. Washi idea came from Ribbon Carousel RRC90 to use washi on a card. The top of the card I sprayed with Heidi Swapp color shine and added die cut clouds. The card is based on a sketch from Fusion #4 challenge.

Here is what the stamp set and dies look like.


I used Pennants die and a matching stamp for my flower placement. There are several different flowers in this set and they are really easy to match up to the dies. I doubled my cardstock and so I had several different die cut flowers. I felt that I needed some leaves so I used Leaf Cluster die. I colored them with Faber Castel Gelatos.

The sentiment, from Warm Fuzzies Sentiments set, coordinates with Banners & Tails Die set.

Thank you close by Daniela Dobson

That is all from me. Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

I hope you play along.
