Impression Obsession Spring Dies!

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Team Spring Die hop! We have some beautiful new dies to share with you today and tomorrow, and prizes too. Keep reading to find out how you could win a $25 gift certificate and get a few dies of your own!


This mini canvas tote bag has been in my "alterables" box for quite some time... I think I was supposed to do a marker project with it, but it never happened....? I had a few printable canvas scraps left from the project I shared Monday, and I used those to cut out the pieces of the Strawberry die set... I squealed when I saw this set! It is so cute, and the separate pieces make this set so versatile. I colored the pieces with Touch Twin Markers.


I cut and stamped an oval from the canvas (it has a coating on it that makes it printer-friendly - I'll have to find out where it came from!) and then stitched around it carefully.


The berries and leaves are attached with single lines of stitching, and the flowers were hand sewn with the button centers.


I.O. Products I used: Strawberry SetSweet Things
