Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Pop Up Your Words

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project featuring word dies or stamps. This is one of my favorite sentiment stamps from our recent Fall/Winter release - I don't know about you, but I say things to myself that I would never dare to say to someone else... maybe it wouldn't hurt to show ourselves a little kindness?

My background here started on a sheet from a pamphlet I got from someone going door to door... there are a couple of layers of gel printing, including the new CAC Splash background, printed with ColorBox pigment ink. The circles are one of Seth Apter's new stamps, which as always are really great for background textures. The sentiment is printed on our bookmark die, which is linked below!

Stamps and dies I used: CAC Splash, Grunge Grids cling set, Love Yourself, Bookmark die

  1. Dina, this is a fabulous card in every way! Love the "make do" of the door-to-door pamphlet and especially the tagged sentiment. We all know someone it personifies.

  2. I love the design of the card that you made and the different colors. Very pretty looking card. Thanks for the share, hope you have a fantastic weekend. Keep up the posts.

  3. Dina, what a gorgeous card! I love the background you've created with the pamphlet sheet, and what a fabulous sentiment! I so agree with it and with what you said. I really love your sentiments and purchased some recently. They are so beautiful and always have a lovely font!! Hugs, sweet friend! (Praying for you and your family too!) xoxo
