{ Impression Obsession DT challenge–School Spirit! }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – School Spirit (school colors, graduation, ect…).

Why don’t you come along and play with us. To enter the challenge go to the Impression Obsession Blog (all the details are there!).  Create a new project 16– April 29. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a$25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

Proud of you by Daniela Dobson

I was thinking of Alex when making this card. He is in first grade and school is almost over. We tell him all the time how proud we are of him, but I thought a card would be nice, too. His favorite color is red, and so are his school colors, but I didn’t want the whole card to be red.
The background is embossed with polka dots. Finally got out one of my old embossing folders and this Core’dinations Whitewash cardstock collection. You sand it after it’s embossed to reveal the core color.
 
The bottom is lined with washi and then I added Fir Tree Border and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames as a border. The Clouds are cut from white cardstock and I added 3D foam Adhesive from Therm O Web to the Plane with Banner. The sentiment is from Life Stuff Sentiments stamp set and is one of my favorites.

That is all from me. Have a great Thursday!

{ April 2015 Memory Keepers Studio by Technique Tuesday }

Hello, I have several different projects to share. It’s been busy around here with school and Spring weather. I am participating in several different challenges (more about that at another time), that are just for me, and I am enjoying the process.

Here is a little layout I created using April 2015 Memory Keepers Studio Say It – Remember. I love mixing stamps with other little word embellishments.

Puddle jumping by Daniela Dobson

I am using new Elle’s Studio Cienna collection. The paper with the diamonds is my favorite. I love coloring them. I used watercolor pencils on this layout. I was excited to use the rain drops from Pink Paislee that I got long time ago. Perfect for this photo.

I cut one of the journaling tags to make it appear longer than it is. I stamped three different phrases below the photo. The American Crafts thickers are being used for the very first time.

This stamp set has a coordinating steel die available for purchase. For added convenience, consider becoming a member of both the Memory Keepers Studio and Fresh Cut Studio™ autoship programs.
24 clear stamps on a 4" x 6" storage sheet.


Here is a card I created for Technique Tuesday using Great Day stamp set and cupcake liners. In addition, I used Simply Circles and happydie.

Happy birthday by Daniela Dobson



We were invited to participate in Becky Fleck’s April 2015 CardMaps. Here is what I created. You can find all the sketches and creations HERE.

Congrats by Daniela Dobson

Since I have been playing around with lots of mixed media for my Documented Life Journals, I love how some things are discovered. Gelatos didn’t work so well on this watercolor paper, but my watercolor crayons did the trick. They are so vibrant. I love them. They are Caran d'Ache Classic Neocolor II. I scribbled three different colors and sprayed with water until they started running down. I added some modeling paste through a stencil and stamped some lines and circles. I die cut the leaves from yellow and white vellum. The sentiment is stamped on white cardstock and cut out.

Congrats close by Daniela Dobson

Smile by Daniela Dobson

I fell in love with the colors at Color Throwdown – Orange, Navy and Pink. My plan was to use Spring Medley stamp set that has a matching die Flower Trio. For the background I used Mosaic Tile stamped in orange. The base is navy cardstock with a white core, embossed and sanded to expose some of the core. I die cut Instant Photo Frame from the same navy cardstock and layered stamped and die cut flowers in the corner over banners. I colored the flowers with watercolor crayons.
