All About The Dies Challenge!

Hi all! Well, the Impression Obsession Design team took a few days to show off some of the fun creativity you can have when you pair a little paper with some of the brand new dies from Impression Obsession. Hope you had fun seeing all the possibilities! If you want to take a peek at all that is in the store, just head HERE!

If you have some of IO's dies, well, today is FOR YOU! The DT is ushering in a challenge that is ALL About The Dies! If you play along, there is a $25 gift certificate on the line! Don't have any dies? Well, stay tuned, coming up later in this post, I will tell you how you can win some!

On to my creation! Oh goodness -- do these dies have a TON of potential!
Do you see which ones I am talking about? They look like this...

And, can create things like this.....


After you cut out the flowers, you take the end that does not have the circle on it and you roll the flower inward, making sure that the color you want to be your main color is in the center. Take a glue dot, place it on the circle end and that is secured at the bottom of the flower and holds it all together! Easy peasy! I used the Spiral Daisy and the Spiral Flowers and then paired them up with the Leaf Cluster and the Branch Die. I actually cut apart the branch die cut to serve as my larger leaves. See?

I added a sentiment -- This Day -- in black ink on a sponged die cut frame and... almost finished! I know you would never know it but this was really a quick card. I had rolled some of the flowers as I watched TV one night. So, that part was already done. Add some patterned paper, some washi tape, a bit of stitching and.. ta da! Done!
And that, my friends is it!  Now, for some more creative inspiration, hop on over and see the rest of the IO DT!
