{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – something shiny }

Hello and welcome to the new year and a new set of challenges. For our first challenge of 2018 we have something shiny. I am working on CHA projects right now and I am surrounded by Deco Foil. If you are not familiar with it, you need to check it out.

Here is the card I created with shiny background using a mask, Deco Foil Transfer Gel, Deco Foil and my laminator. If you are interested I can do a video on how this is done.

Hello by Daniela Dobson

I used You're in My Heart stamp set for the large heart and Floral Heart Set for the flowers.

I let the heart hang of the edge a bit and cut the extra off. It gave the card a little more interest. For the sentiment I die cut “hello” with Hello die.

The flowers are watercolored and fussy cut. I used 3D foam squares to add dimension and tuck a twine bow under the flowers.

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 using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog between January 4 – January 17. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

I hope you play along.

{ Elle's Studio 2018 DT }

Hi and Happy New Year!
I have some exciting news to share!! I was asked to stay on the Elle’s Studio DT for another year. How exciting is that. I am joined with these wonderful ladies.  I have been on the Contributing Team since October 2012 working with all the exclusive Kits, then joined the DT full time in 2015. Back in 2010, I was on the first DT for Elle’s Studio and I am very happy to be working with Elle’s Studio again.

Today I have my very fist blog post of the year highlighting the brand new Thank You Stamp and Thank You Puffy Stickers, which are perfect for thanking friends and family after a busy holiday season!


I used white cardstock for the base of the cards with patterned paper from the Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack cut slightly smaller than the base for a white border.


For the first card, I layered darker embellishments from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces and a large heart that I adhered using dimensional adhesive. “A note to say” from the Thank You Stamp was stamped in black ink on white cardstock and cut out to fit above the “I appreciate you so much” Thank You Puffy Sticker.


For the second card, I used lighter colors in the same style as the first card. I layered the “from the bottom of my heart” Thank You Puffy Sticker over the Family Fun Blank Label at the top, then stamped “thank you” in black in underneath the label.

Both cards are embellished with twine in matching colors from my stash and a little puffy heart from the Family Fun Puffy Stickers.

Get ready to document the year with our new 6 x 8 inch stamp and journaling tags that are available now!  Use our new All The Details stamp to create and/or customize your journaling tags all year long for your pocket pages!
