{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Friendship }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Friendship!

Our challenge starts today, August 21, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, August 27, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between August 21-27. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

Friend by Daniela Dobson

I mixed some old and new dies for this card - Instant Photo Frame and Kite. Love the kite, you can create different color combinations. My big shot can cut through several paper layers so I always layer two or three patterned papers and die cut.

The background is stamped with my all time favorite Cover-a-Card Wood Grain. I added a little “friend” stamp from Express Yourself on a die cut Flags Die Set.

The flair is from {A Flair For Buttons}.

{ Technique Tuesday New Release giveaway }

Hello, I am back to share a card I created with one of the new sets from Technique Tuesday called Take Care.  You can check out all the new releases on our Technique Tuesday website.

Here is my card.

Thinking of you by Daniela Dobson

I used my Hand Drawn circle cut that I created in my Silhouette Studio. I sprayed it with Color Shine to match the green in the card. I created and cut the doily, as well. I can share that one, too, if anyone wants it. The banner is a die cut Banner – DIY Steel Die.
I am trying to organize all my steel dies and it’s a mess. How do you store your dies?

I am giving this little stamp set away, so leave a comment for a chance to win.

{ Exclusive August kit from Elle’s Studio }

Exclusive August is ready for purchase now.

Design team gallery is FULL of brand new inspiration just for you. You can bookmark your favorites, leave comments and see close ups of our design team’s projects in our gallery. Visit Elle’s Studio Blog for links to other Contributing DT members.

Here is what I created with the August kit and cut files.

My happy place by Daniela Dobson

I love the colors in this kit. I chose a photo of us from one morning when we went bowling. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw this photo. Not sure why I haven’t thought of it before, but this is our first car family selfie.
I used the cut tent file and removed the bottom line, so it looks like they are little chevrons. I spaced them horizontally on the bottom of the white cardstock. I cut the chevron card and “love this” tab at the same time and just cut the bottom portion to use on the page.
I sprayed the chevron card ant the tab with Heidi Swapp color shine to match.

My happy place close by Daniela Dobson

I love all the transparencies this month. I added some butterflies from my stash to match the colors of the kit. I tucked the chevron card to the right side of the photo. Little chipboard hearts are from Studio Calico and I filed the edges to expose the chipboard. I added a few American Crafts rub ons and enamel dots to finish the page.
