{ Thank you card }

I haven’t heard from my winner  from my little stamp giveaway. If I don’t hear from you soon I will have to pick another winner.
***Heather Thompson email me your address so we can mail that stamp to you!***

I made another little card to join in on some of the challenges that are going on. I fell in love with the Rterosketches #130. I used Impression Obsession stamps and dies for this card.

Sketchy Chevron Border and a banner from Banners & Greetings stamp set.

Thank you by Daniela Dobson

My inspiration colors are from Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. I used Leaves Die Set from Impression Obsession. There is a smaller set, as well, called Sm. Leaf Set. I die cut the leaves from cardstock and I inked the edges. The leaves are painted with Glass Bead Glitter Gel from Faber Castell.  I added a little banner from Banners & Tails and a sentiment from More Basic Greetings.

{ Technique Tuesday giveaway winner }

Hello and happy Wednesday. I have a winner from my little stamp giveaway from last week.

***Heather Thompson email me your address so we can mail that stamp to you!***

I made a little card because I was playing with some new Faber Castell Design Memory Craft goodies that arrived.

Hello by Daniela Dobson

I finally used one of Heidi Swapp stencils that I got from Emma’s Paperie. I mixed Whipped Spackle from Faber Castell and blue Gelato to get the color. The chevron from Chevrons Two Step is stamped with Hero Arts ink. The butterfly, from Butterfly Collage, is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor crayons.
Hello is from Fly Away stamp set.

That is all from me. School started this Monday so I have a first grader to get ready for bed. Have a great night.

Friend by Daniela Dobson

I mixed some old and new dies for this card - Instant Photo Frame and Kite. Love the kite, you can create different color combinations. My big shot can cut through several paper layers so I always layer two or three patterned papers and die cut.

The background is stamped with my all time favorite Cover-a-Card Wood Grain. I added a little “friend” stamp from Express Yourself on a die cut Flags Die Set.

The flair is from {A Flair For Buttons}.

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

{ Technique Tuesday New Release giveaway }

Hello, I am back to share a card I created with one of the new sets from Technique Tuesday called Take Care.  You can check out all the new releases on our Technique Tuesday website.

Here is my card.

Thinking of you by Daniela Dobson

I used my Hand Drawn circle cut that I created in my Silhouette Studio. I sprayed it with Color Shine to match the green in the card. I created and cut the doily, as well. I can share that one, too, if anyone wants it. The banner is a die cut Banner – DIY Steel Die.
I am trying to organize all my steel dies and it’s a mess. How do you store your dies?

I am giving this little stamp set away, so leave a comment for a chance to win.
