Impression Obsession DT Thursday!

It's time for Impression Obsession's DT Thursday! On the weeks we're not hosting challenges, the designers take turns sharing a project for inspiration. It's my turn - so welcome!

I have the distinction of being a designer for Impression Obsession as well as one of their licensed artists... for today's project I pulled out some of my earlier stamp designs that were released in the spring of 2013, a collection of fun vintage sewing images. 

This card is made of mostly 'found' supplies - I stamped the dress form on a book page, and colored and shaded the image with Coloursoft pencils. The buttons were cut from a small piece of chipboard (it's the top of a tea box), and they're 'threaded' with small strips of cardstock. The background panel and horizontal strip are gel prints from a scrap stash. The lace at the bottom was die cut from tissue paper that once wrapped an ebay purchase.

These are the supplies I used:

Sew Loved
Border Duo 2

Daisy Dress Form
Thanks for visiting me! What stamp designs are missing from your collection?
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is BEAUTIFUL Dina! VERY CREATIVE with ALL that you have done!!!! I wouldn't have even THOUGHT of threading my buttons with paper strips! LOL

  2. that always makes the coolest cards to use the found and made bits and pieces, I love that you cut the lace from tissue and the fact that the buttons are threaded with paper is jaw- dropping WOW :)

  3. lovely card, would never have thought of die cutting tissue paper.
