Impression Obsession Die Cut Obsession

It's Impression Obsession's Die Cut Obsession time.    There are so many fabulous dies in the IO line, and today we are featuring some of them on our blogs.

I have a 'thing' for leaves, branch, and trees.  And I really love this Leafy Branch die.  I use it often when I make cards or on other projects.

IO Die/Stamp links:

I created a swatch of color diagonally on my card front with distress ink and a brush applicator.  I used the Leafy Branch die cut as a stencil.  

I brushed ink through the negative part of the stencil, after removing the die cut. 
I repeated this, using different portions of the hand made die cut 'stencil.

I stamped the Sending a hug verse from the Warm Fuzzies Sentiments set with archival purple ink. 

I layered two die cuts of the Leafy Branch, and attached it to the card front.

Inside, I brushed more color, and used a small portion of the die cut stencil to add more branches.

That's it.  A quick and easy card, and so much fun to make.
You can find ideas and inspiration from the other designers on the IO blog HERE

I am adding my card to these challenges:
AAA Cards - Up to 1/3 and repeated image
Allsorts Challenge - Anything goes
Seize The Birthday - Monochromatic
