{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – last minute holiday cards or gifts }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – last minute holiday cards or gifts.

This little card truly is a last minute card. It took less than five minutes to create. It would be faster, but I couldn’t find my tree die so I had to fussy cut the trees.

Season's greetings by Daniela Dobson

I used a punch for the strip of patterned paper. A strip of washi tape above that. The trees are stamped using Impression Obsession Ink and fussy cut. I adhered a piece of label I had laying around, some twine and stamped the greeting in black ink. Done!

This would be super easy to mass produce and change the color scheme.

I used Christmas Trees stamp set for the card.

Season's greetings close by Daniela Dobson

For my tag I started with Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Deco Foil Transfer sheets in Emerald Watercolor. I used a laminator to add the foil to the transfer get. The tags are created and cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
For The stocking, I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images. For my touch of gray I added some washi tape and twine.

{ Thankful for you card with Maya Road }

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

Thankful by Daniela Dobson
For my card I used Banner Sentiments Stamp Set and Rose Garden Sentiments Stamp Set. For the base I used white cardstock and black polka dot patterned paper. I layered Medium Vintage Paper Flowers - Pink over a butterfly from my stash and Resin Fancy Frames - Snow White. I tucked a little  Twine Cording - Blackberry bow under the butterfly. The sentiment is from Banner Sentiments Stamp Set that I stamped and cut out. In addition, I added one of the "paint brush" stamps from Rose Garden Sentiments Stamp Set to the pink piece of patterned paper.

Have a great Monday.

{ 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.
