{ Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday }

It is my turn today to share a card I made using Impression Obsession stamps. Here is what I created.

Happiness by Daniela Dobson

I used Pom Pom Flower Bouquet stamp for the card base. I spritzed the stamp with water and painted it with yellow Gelato. I sprayed the card with color Shine. Once it was dry I stamped the “happiness” words from Happiness & Love stamp set. The butterflies are stamped and cut out.

I used Mojo Monday 330 for the sketch. I went for a typical card size instead of a tall and skinny. The color inspiration is from a box that was sitting on my desk. white with purple, yellow, blue and pink.

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

{ Technique Tuesday and a new winner }

I never heard from Carol so I have to pick another winner, and that is LAUREN. Lauren, I have your email address and will email you. I might have to require email addresses for future giveaways.

I wanted to share some Technique Tuesday projects I created with some of their new stamps that were just released.

This first card features and older set that was re-released as part of their 10-year anniversary celebration: Old World Squares.

Hello friend by Daniela Dobson

I started with a Steel Die - Story Card to get my base, which is 3x4 card. I heat embossed the words from Old World Squares using white embossing powder and sprayed it with color shine. Then I added several more stamps from the set. A strip of washi tape has “hello” from Steel Die - Say It – Hello and a “friend” from I Like You stamp set.

This one was featured on the blog the other day and it uses Hello Today by Ali Edwards.

Here is my card.

Love you by Daniela Dobson

I had a hard time trying to decide what NEW stamps and dies to use on this card. I decided on Valentine Hearts and Basic Borders. After I cut out the large heart I remembered I had the dies that go with this set. That made everything much easier. I used a CAS255 sketch from SCS for this card. This is the best I can do for clean and simple card.

Love you close by Daniela Dobson

That is all from me. Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

Exclusive January kit is out and ready for purchase. 

Here is my layout.

Wishes for 2014 by Daniela Dobson

I had so  much fun with this kit and layout. There are so many different tags included for many different topics. I decided to go with Wishes for 2014. I can definitively see a love layout or a card in the near future.

I used various tags then went with my theme and some cut files that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo, the speech bubble and 2014. I sprayed them with color shine to match my other colors. Those cut files are perfect to use all year long.

The background is painted with Gelatos and I added some modeling paste using Heidi Swapp mask. The flair buttons from {A Flair For Buttons} fit everything perfectly.

{ January Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday }

Welcome to our January 2014 Blog Hop. Today we are featuring projects made with  All My Heart - Studio AE - January 2014.

Here is my layout.

You are my life by Daniela Dobson 
I started by making the background with Gelatos and water. Once it was dry I used a heart stencil that I made and Gesso to paint the hearts. I used same ink colors to stamp all the sentiments and stamped embellishments. All the sentiments from All My Heart stamp set are stamped using gelatos or big brush pens. I just wet the stamp a little with a baby wipe, added color and stamped to give it that washed, watercolor look.

I was really excited about all the new stamps coming out that I had to include them in this layout.

You are my life close by Daniela Dobson
