{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Tis The Season }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Tis The Season.

Here is a cute little card I created using Festive Ornaments stamp set and matching dies.

Seasons greetings by Daniela Dobson

For my card I started by embossing the background, something I haven’t done in a long time. I cut two different pieces of patterned paper from Elle’s Studio Tis The Season Collection. For the sentiment I used Season’s Greetings Die and white cardstock. I stamped the Festive Ornaments in Cherry ink using my Misti. After it was die cut, I used 3D foam squares to pop it up over the All-in-One Frames - Rectangles 2.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Falling Leaves }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Falling Leaves (Fall themed).

I created a card using the stamp set that has the same name as our challenge – Falling Leaves.

It's Fall by Daniela Dobson

Falling Leaves stamp set comes with a matching die with the same name – Falling Leaves. I stamped and die cut three different leaves from white cardstock. They are scattered and adhered to the front journaling card using Therm O Web adhesive and 3D foam squares. I added a wood veneer and sequins leaf.

The background is stamped using a Cover-a-card stamp called Thick Stripes. I stamped them horizontally  and then again vertically using two different Impression Obsession ink colors. I added a sentiment from the same set, washi, sequins, Nuvo Crystal drops and twine.

{ Thanks card with Maya Road }

Hello and happy Monday. I have a blog post on Maya Road blog today sharing this card.

Thanks by Daniela Dobson

For my card I used Flower Die Set and I die cut the flowers and leaves from patterned paper, cardstock and Foil Mates. Using my laminator and Deco Foil from Therm O Web  I added some shine to the background and the flower base.

For the sentiment I used Rose Garden Sentiment Stamp set that I stamped in black ink on a tag from my stash.

I tied two pieces of Twine Cording - Blackberry to the top of the panel and then again a bow under the flower.

Thanks 02  by Daniela Dobson

{ Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday }

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

I have been wanting to use this Leaf Set by Dina Kowal. It’s a layered leaf set with four different sentiments. Here is my card.

Change by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the bottom of the card with Herringbone Cover-a-card stamp and Chocolate Ink. I added a piece of patterned paper to the top.

To stamp the leaves I used several different colors: Melon, Chocolate, Tan, Chartreuse, Shamrock. In addition, I used Leaf Stems stamp set. I stamped three different images and cut them out. I used 3D foam squares to adhere the circle and Mini Tape runner from Therm O Web to add all the other elements.

Have a great Thursday.

Here is a cute little card I created using Beary Sweet stamp set and matching dies.

Birthday wishes by Daniela Dobson

Isn’t he adorable? I love that this stamp set is perfect for any occasion. You can just change what the bear is holding. I loved coloring him with Prismacolor pencils.

I layered several different pieces of washi tape on the white background and I painted over it with Gesso to tone it down. I used one of the die cut frames from All-in-One Frames - Rectangles 2. The die cut bear is adhered to the card with 3D foam squares from Therm O Web.
