{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Somebunny Loves you }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Somebunny Loves you (Easter or bunnies).

Here is a card I created with our brand new stamps.

Happy day by Daniela Dobson

I started this card by stamping Vintage Briar Rose Background on white cardstock in yellow ink. The Ornate Rectangle Frame is die cut from white cardstock and I lightly inked the edges with the same pink as the bunny.

I stamped and fussy cut the bunny, along with his tail. He is adhered with 3D foam squares. I tied thin ribbon at the bottom, by his feet, and added a stamped sentiment from the same stamp set: Bunny Love.

{ Maya Road Guest Designer }

Hello and happy Wendesday. I am a guest designer for Maya Road this month and I have a blog post on their blog today. This is one of my projects I created using Maya Road supplies.

Easy and quick card with pieces of patterned paper and then layering trinkets and diecuts. The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut. I couldn’t resist adding watercolor splatters to match my watercolor Notepaper die cut.

Stop by the Maya Road blog for a list of supplies and more photos of this card. I will share one more project on Friday.

Stop by tomorrow for our Impression Obsession DT challenge.

{ Floral Inspiration with Elle’s Studio }

Good morning and happy Valentine’s Day. I have a card on Elle’s Studio blog showcasing our February 2017 kit and extras. I knew I was posting on Valentine’s Day, but wanted to create someting different.


I was inspired by the 3″ x 4″ floral background tag from the kit and wanted to use it as a focal element on my card. I used my watercolor crayons to color in the flowers and leaves on the journaling card background- just a little touch of color with the crayon and a little water with the paint brush to move the color around. I added a little bit of color to the diamond patterned paper of the card base as well.


I cut a strip of yellow from one of the patterned papers in the Sunny Days 12 x 12 Paper Collection and used my fringe scissors to add a fringe to the paper strip. I cut the striped border journaling tag from Love You Journaling Tags in half and adhered it behind my watercolored flower journaling card. The fringe was added to the bottom and a little twine tied in a bow to the front. I added the yellow heart sticker from the Speech Bubble Stickers and layered the colorful banner tag from the February 2017 Exclusive Kit. It was the perfect way to pull all of the colors together.

I used a gray marker to draw the flowers onto white cardstock, then I colored them with the same watercolor crayons. They are a larger version of the ones on the journaling card. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the front with 3D foam squares. Above the flowers, the “hello” sticker from the Speech Bubble Stickers created the perfect sentiment!


Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to share your projects inspired by this post using Elle’s Studio products using the hashtag #EllesStudio on social media for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Elle’s Studio shop!
