{ Impression Obsession Designer Die Hop Day 2 }

Welcome to day two of our Impression Obsession Fall Designer Die Hop!

Here is my card.

Wonderful by Daniela Dobson

I was trying to go with just the tag, but it was missing something, so I turned it into a card. The background is stamped with Herringbone. I made the tag from white cardstock. I really liked the Bushel of Apples die so I die cut a bunch of apples. Then I added leaves from Oak Leaves and Rake and pumpkins from Pumpkin Patch. I did start with the grass from Sm. Grass die and made it look like the basket was sitting there.
The sentiment is from You Made My Day stamp set. Some of the cardstock that I have in my stash has an adhesive background (grass) which helped adhering the small pieces. For everything else I like to use Zots Adhesive Dots from Therm O Web. They are really tiny, called Zots for Bling. The tag is popped up with 3D foam Squares from Therm O Web. Love the dimension and I was able to tuck in those banners that I hand cut from cardstock.

{ Impression Obsession Designer Die Hop Day 1 }

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Fall Designer Die Hop!

We have some beautiful new dies to share AND Gift Certificates to give away!

Here is my card.

Perk up by Daniela Dobson

For this card I used Takeout Coffee Cup. It turns out I don’t own any coffee stamp sets. I know, I can’t believe it either. I did manage to find the sentiment Perk Up. We have plenty to choose from in our store.  Since today is National Coffee Day I wanted to participate in Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For the gift card I used Gift Card Insert 2 die that I die cut from a sticker. I didn’t take a photo without the card, oops. I used baby powder to remove the sticky and just applied my own adhesive.
This bright paper collection is Basic Grey and I die cut the adorable cup from the same collection. I used 3D foam squares to pop up the cup.  I splattered come color shine and added some pearls to finish the card.

{ Technique Tuesday Memory Keepers Studio - Sept. 2014 and blog hop winner }

Hello and happy Monday. What is everyone up to this week? What projects are you working on? I am not a project life girl, even though I did attempt it once when it was still brand new, back in 2009. It was called Project 365. You can see the start of my album here.

Now I just make story cards that I include on my layouts.

If you are looking for inspiration using our Memory Keepers Studio - Sept. 2014 stamp set and steel dies I created some Story cards.

Perfect picture cards by Daniela Dobson

I die-cut the frame with the Perfect Picture steel dies and then placed the picture right in the opening. The base is Story Card DIY Die and I stamped “love this” with the Perfect Picture stamp set.

Smile card by Daniela Dobson

I used the Perfect Picture stamp set to stamp on the frame cut with the Heart Card steel dies. The stamping really makes the Story Card seem a lot more personalized. I added vellum and Story Card DIY Die as a base and stitched around the edges to make a shaker card.

Favorite story card by Daniela Dobson

For this last one I stamped the words all over the front and added some embellishments.
