All About the Dies... Day 1!

If you're a fan of Impression Obsession, you know IO has been up to some creative fun with so many new dies! If you want to take a peek at all that is in the store, just head HERE!

Today the design team is showing off a bit of what you can do with these new dies.For the next three days, in fact, you can get a ton of ideas with out All About The Dies Hop! You'll even have chances to win three dies of your choice... so stay tuned to find out how!

On to my creation!
I have no idea why but when I see a butterfly, I see orange! I guess to me, there are only monarch butterflies in the world! ;-) I knew though, when we had this hop, I had to make my first card with this beautiful die set called Fancy Butterfly. It's a two layer die -- one for the base and one for all that fabulous detail!   I also used THIS die called Circle Shaker Frame Die as my "frame" for my main image. I layered it up with a cut circle that I had embossed and then.... matted it all up with different scraps of decorative paper. The lacy bottom that you can see below is also a die called Border Duo 1 Die Set -- yes you get 2 dies for just $15! I love these border dies because you just run it through your machine and there is nothing to line up like you have to do on a punch -- so easy!

And, here's a close up of that pretty butterfly!!

And that, my friends is it!  Now, for some more creative inspiration, hop on over and see the rest of the IO DT!
