Impression Obsession - Die Cut Obsession

There are so many amazing dies at Impression Obsession - we thought we'd create a special Monday feature to let them have the spotlight! We hope you're inspired!

Extra Fun clear set

Quite a few of our stamp sets have matching dies, so I thought I'd play with the dies that coordinate with the "Extra Fun" elephant set today - the dies were released a little while after the set came out, so I didn't get a chance to share samples right away.

I colored the images using Copic markers, and lined up the dies carefully - you can see here what a perfect fit they are, with just a narrow border around the image. They're very easy to line up with the outlines of the images.

One small cut is needed by hand if you want the pole to tuck in under the trunk, but it's very easily done.

The pole and pennant are part of the clear set, as well as an American flag. There are several mix-and-match sentiment options as well!

Instant Photo Frame die set

While I had the elephant out, I made another quick "selfie" card using the Instant Photo Frame die - if you hurry you can grab that one at a discount at our Overstock sale! It's a great little set that comes with the frame, some photo corners, and a word die.

I had this background already made using scraps of paper that collected next to my trimmer.

Be sure to check out the other designers' blogs for inspiration - see the I.O. blog for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by!
