Today starts another exciting feature on the Impression-Obsession blog. A couple of times a month, we will be featuring dies in the Die-Cut Obsession posts.
You can find the other designer's posts listed on the Impression-Obsession blog HERE.
I love the background dies, and this Sm. Flourish Background DIE445-YY is one of my favorites. I also used the Thanks from the Greetings Set DIE174-W.
I die-cut the Sm. Flourish Background DIE445-YY, and added it to the same color pink panel then onto a green A2 card. I used picked raspberry distress ink to add some color to the area I was going to place my flower.
I stamped the Wispy Cosmos onto Arteza watercolor paper, and used Daniel Smith watercolors to paint the flower. I then fussy-cut it and added it to the card with foam tape to give it dimension.
I layered several of the Thanks die cuts, and added them to the card. A spattering of moonshine sequins adds just a little shine.
I love the combination of pink and green. They're such pretty, perky, happy colors. I wanted a cheery card today, so that's the way I rolled. I did sneak just a hint of yellow into the pink on some of the petals, just for some interest and play with color. I'm sneaky that way some times.
There are so many ways to use dies on cards, and new techniques are showing up every day. How about you? Do you use dies on your cards?
I hope you are inspired by my card, and those of the other designers today. You can find more Impression-Obsession stamps and dies HERE. Don't forget to check out the other designer's projects for today HERE.
