{ Card flair and Die cut freebies }

Looks like it’s been a while since I shared a free file. Freebies are popular on this blog and I see them pinned on Pinterest and I get updates when they are downloaded from my blog. Well, I am ready to share more. I was thinking about retiring some of my old freebies as I upload the new files. Let me know what you think.

I created this card using Sentiment Bubble Flair from {A Flair For Buttons}. I am sharing it on A flair for buttons blog.

Happy birthday by Daniela Dobson

I used Mojo Monday 347 for the card. Tall & Skinny. I used Heidi Swapp cardstock that I had for a long time and found it recently. I sprayed it with Citron color shine.
I created the flower in my Silhouette Studio that I cut out. You can make the flower whatever size you want. Just make sure you select all three shapes when you make them bigger or smaller.
I colored each flower layer with Gelatos. I used the flair for the center of the flower. The flair set comes with 6 different sentiments, perfect for cards.

I used a chevron stencil and modeling paste for the base of my card.

{ A Kick Off To Summer Blog Hop }

 CardMaker Magazine and Technique Tuesday are teaming up today for a “a kick off to summer” blog hop.

Here is what I created.

Best ever by Daniela Dobson

I started by stamping two different chevron patterns on the left side of the card. I stamped the flower on The Story Die die cut and colored it with watercolor crayons. I used Faber Castell Gelatos to lightly color the background of the die cut. I used 3D White Foam Sticky Strips to add dimension to the story card die. The sentiment is stamped on patterned paper die cut with Label die. I layered two different patterns and stapled them together.

{ Reverse Confetti May Color Challenge }

Hi and welcome to our May Color Challenge – orange, light pink, and dark pink.

Here is my card.

Thanks a bunch by Daniela Dobson

I started by using my stencil and adding modeling paste. Once that was dry I colored the background with watercolor.
I stamped a strip of paper with diagonal stripes from So Stripey using light pink. The flower from Petals ‘n Posies was stamped using dark ink. I added some orange pearls and an orange enamel dot to the flower. The sentiment is from Petals ‘n Posies set, as well.

Thanks a bunch close by Daniela Dobson

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Inspired by a Song }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Inspired by a song!

Our challenge starts today, May 15, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, May 21, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between May 15-21. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

I love you by Daniela Dobson

Not sure how much I was inspired by a song, instead I was inspired by Love Songs 1 stamp set. There is another set called Love Songs 2. First time using this Love Songs 1 stamp set. I paired it with my loved Wood Grain stamp and Tapestry Tag. Clearly, I need to use them more often. I rearranged my stamps recently and found some that I forgot about and placed them in a basket on my work table. The Clearsnap ColorBox Guava ink was a bit too bright so I mixed it with Bubblegum.
I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and adhered it to to card using 3D foam strips from Therm O Web.
I used Retrosketch #114 for this card. 

I love 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.

{ May Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday }

Welcome to our May 2014 Blog Hop. Today we are featuring projects made with Today Circles - Studio AE - May 2014.

Here is my layout.

Best memory by Daniela Dobson

These circle stamps are a perfect match for our Circles - DIY Steel Dies. I stamped them on white cardstock and then die cut the circles. In addition to the large circles, there are these tiny words that I used to add throughout the layout. I even used them as words in my journaling. I am using lots of new supplies that I received recently from Emma’s Paperie: American Crafts, Studio Calico and My Mind’s Eye.
