{ May 2017 Memory Keepers Studio by Technique Tuesday }

Well, May is just flying by. I am posting these a little late this month. Our May release Bucket List - Memory Keepers Studio - May 2017 and Bucket List DIY Steel Die - Fresh Cut Studio - May 2017are available for purchase.

You can find all our new additions for May HERE.

Here is what I created with Bucket List - Memory Keepers Studio.

Super Memorable by Daniela Dobson

Everything on this layout is somewhat old and from my stash. Stuff I have been collecting and not using. I love the way it turned out. When I saw the stamp set I knew exactly what photos I wanted for this layout.
At the top of the page and right above the photos I stamped “Super Memorable” with black ink. On the library card I added “Focus on the finish”. “Lessons Learned” came from another stamp set called Today Tabs. Under the main image of the stamp set on the website you can see examples created with the set and suggestions of other sets you can use or that might work well together.

I stamped “keep going” and “highlights” and cut them out. The circle fits one inch punch perfectly.

Here is what the stamp set and the DIY die look like. Pretty fun!

Our Animal House stamp set for may is Leonardo the Lion Stamp Set - Animal House - May 2017. You have to read his biography!!! He has a matching die set, as well. I colored him with Prismacolor pencils.

Make sure you check out our new website for some fun sales, like this Treasure box sale for $24.99. A box filled with stamps.

That is all from me for today. Have a great Tuesday!

I used Monkey Business stamp set to create the little scene. This set has a matching die with the same name Monkey Business. I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils.

The background is heat embossed with clear embossing powder and Cover-a-card background stamp called Boxwood. It looks amazing on green cardstock. I used Black ink. I sponged Chartreuse ink and Baby Blue ink around the edges of the white square.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Unlayered }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Unlayered.

Here is a set of cards I created using Impression Obsession stamps, dies and Therm O Web Deco Foil. The challenge was less than 3 layers. This one is debatable. It’s a pretty simple card.

Thank you card set by Daniela Dobson 
For many of us this is National Teacher Appreciation week along with this Saturday being National Nurse’s Day.  Since both professions involve being caregivers of our children and loved ones it seems fitting we recognize them both! Thank you cards are perfect for anyone at any time.

Thank you card set close 2 by Daniela Dobson

I used a simple design on each card alternating colors and sentiments.

Thank you card set close 3 by Daniela Dobson

The big sentiments are die cut using Thanks die and Special die and then foiled via the laminator.

Thank you card set close by Daniela Dobson

I used Thanks and Special stamp sets for the sentiments. The triangles are from Really Useful Stamps set that were heat embossed using white embossing powder.

Thank you card set close 4 by Daniela Dobson
