Die-Cut Obsession at Impression-Obsession - Dragonfly & Cattails


Welcome to Die-Cut Obsession at Impression-Obsession!  Today we are featuring some of our fabulous dies on our design team blogs for your inspiration.  You can find the other designer's post links on the IO blog HERE.

I love dragonflies, so my card today has a great big one....
Dies:  DIE43-YY Dragonfly & Cattails
         DIE814-U Pinked Stitched Sentiment Banners
Stamp:  Little Things C20696

I created a background on watercolor paper using distress inks and watercolor.   I cut the Dragonfly & Cattails die from blue card stock, and adhered it to the background, then adhered that to a teal panel, then to an A2 card.  I added some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen.  It doesn't show up well in the photo, but in real life it's fabulously sparkly!

I created a banner from one of the Pinked Stitched Sentiment Banners, and stamped the Little Things verse onto it, and adhered it with foam tape.  


I hope you are inspired by my card.  Dies are fantastic for making a quick card.  I often make a bunch of backgrounds when I have my inks and sprays, etc. out.  That way, when I want a card, I just grab one, add a die, or stamp something over it, and Voila!  Instant card!  Especially these large frame dies, like this beautiful dragonfly one.  Easy-peasy!

Ooopss.... Did anyone catch my ooops on my card.  I inadvertently stamped the verse on the wrong side of the die cut.  I just noticed it when I had the card all finished.  The stitches really look neater and more crisp on the right side....but the card was finished, so there was no going back.  

Don't forget to check out the inspiration from the other designers HERE.  

I am adding my card to these challenges:
CAS Watercolor Challenge - Something blue 
Dies R Us - Summertime
Time Out Challenges - Nature
