Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Dies

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project featuring our new dies!

We are staying in the cutest little guest house until we return home, and I was inspired by the decor here to create this little pennant banner to hang in the kitchen.

  I used the House die to create the pennants, and folded each one about 3/4" down so it could wrap around and hang on my fabric strip.

I used Butterfly, Branch, and Tree die cuts to decorate each panel, and some alphabet stencils I found in a consignment store to spell out the word "fly". The circular elements are from the Circle Shaker Frame die.
I used the new Toile Cover-a-Card stamp on each pennant, and also stamped Poppy Love here and there.

Can't wait to show you the new dies being released at CHA - I designed a few of them myself! And next week, I'll show you another fun use for the fence die!

  1. Great idea to use the house as upside down pennant ! The Toile CAC gives a lovely backdrop to those beautiful die-cuts. Can't wait to see the new dies.
