{ Sammy the Squirrel Stamp Set from Technique Tuesday }

Hi and happy Saturday. I wanted to share one more card I created with Sammy The Squirrel Stamp set from Technique Tuesday and coordinating steel die. In addition, I used Penny Slider Crafting Dies for the acorn to slide back and forth.

{ Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday }

It is my turn today to share a card I made using Impression Obsession stamps and dies. Here is what I created.

I have been wanting to use this Leaf Set by Dina Kowal. It’s a layered leaf set with four different sentiments. Here is my card.

Change by Daniela Dobson

I stamped the bottom of the card with Herringbone Cover-a-card stamp and Chocolate Ink. I added a piece of patterned paper to the top.

To stamp the leaves I used several different colors: Melon, Chocolate, Tan, Chartreuse, Shamrock. In addition, I used Leaf Stems stamp set. I stamped three different images and cut them out. I used 3D foam squares to adhere the circle and Mini Tape runner from Therm O Web to add all the other elements.

Have a great Thursday.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – You’re An Animal }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – You’re An Animal (any type of animal).

Here is a cute little card I created using Beary Sweet stamp set and matching dies.

Birthday wishes by Daniela Dobson

Isn’t he adorable? I love that this stamp set is perfect for any occasion. You can just change what the bear is holding. I loved coloring him with Prismacolor pencils.

I layered several different pieces of washi tape on the white background and I painted over it with Gesso to tone it down. I used one of the die cut frames from All-in-One Frames - Rectangles 2. The die cut bear is adhered to the card with 3D foam squares from Therm O Web.

{ September Kit + Extras Highlight from Elle’s Studio }

Today I am sharing a layout on Elle’s Studio blog created with the new September kit and extras, along with Family Fun collection. Stop by the blog to see how this came together.


This layout came together really quickly with just a few little tags and left over bits and pieces from the main September kit. Other items are from Family Fun collection. Everything works so well together. The colors are amazing.


I used a triangle mask and whipped spackle to add triangles to the background. I added some color shine splatters, sequins and fun stamping.


Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to share your projects created with Elle’s Studio products on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio!

Don’t forget our new Document December kit.
