Impression Obsession DT Challenge: So Thankful

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that expresses gratitude!

There are so many events and projects going on this week! I made sure my card fit several. This is a technique we shared yesterday as a Falliday Fest tutorial over on Splitcoast, and this week there's also a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop going on, so I'm linking there too! My little Tea/Cocoa mug is die cut from napkins, and watercolored with QoR paints - such an interesting technique.

I used Scalloped Stitch Circle dies to build my card base, brushing a little ink on the base panel while the cardstock was still in the die. My sentiment is from this clear set, which is a perfect one for small business owners! Love it.

  1. I think this card takes the prize for "most unique" in the CLBH this week --- I LOVE your cup (made of napkins) and it's yummy looking whip! AWESOME card!! (Thanks for the link to the tutorial - I want to try that!)

  2. So beautiful and well designed. I love how you used that napkin technique to make the cup. That is a fun one to do as I have tried it as well on card designs.

  3. Wow, what great technique, awesome!

  4. I haven’t had a chance to watch the napkin tutorial yet but your cup does look neat! TFS!

  5. gorgeous card!
    Hello from Coffee Lovers blog hop!

  6. Stunning card. I love the shape. Love the image and dies and the bow is awesome shape.

  7. OMG napkins and watercolors - fabulous results, this is so pretty.

  8. Should We get a haunted doll? I want a haunted doll. I found a location that allow s
    you "adopt" them and I believed that was cool.
    I'd like one because I really like paranormal stuff but my
    brother is scared and my dad thinks that stuff is certainly stupid.
    I informed him I was thinking about obtaining one and he told me how
    unfortunate it is that I really believe that stuff.
    Am... show more There is absolutely no such thing.
