Impression Obsession: Sea You Soon

Hi stampers!
It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Sea You soon" I used few of the new dies for my card and did no stamping! Yep, you read that right, I only used die cuts for my card. 
To make the card you will start by die cutting the Sea Life Frame from Emerald card stock panel measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Then die cut the Fish Set from various card stock colors, I used Sweet corn, Wild Mango and Rose Petals. 
Next, you will assemble all the elements onto a pool colored note card. To finish it off die cut the Better at the Beach die cut from black card stock, adhere onto your card and embellish with few sequins!

For my first couple cards I used the new Say it with Diamonds set. Watch the video below to see how this card came to be. My second card is very similar just changed the colors and sentiment used,.
The colors I used for this card are: Flirty Fuchsia, Lime Rickey, Tiara and All that Jazz.

For the second card I used: Something Borrowed, Lime Rickey, Melon Ice and Tiki Torch

For my next card I used Shea Butter and Rose petals. I stamped the images in the middle, then added two strips from Midnight card stock to frame the pattern and adhered to note card made from Midnight card stock.

Last but not the least I have a card using the Starlights stamp set and the coordinating dies. To make this card it's best to start by stamping the sentiment in the background. Stamp the one in the center of the panel then stamp above and under it. Once done stamp the little stars using Aquatini ink pad. Stamp and die cut the start using Flirty Fuchsia, Tiara and Lime Rickey ink pads. Before you move onto assembling the card stamp "you're" on Midnight card stock and emboss with white embossing powder. You are done!

MISTI and Alexandra Renke Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hi Stampers! 
I am back today with a card featuring some Alexandra Renke goodness. If you are not familiar with her stuff, you better check it out! I stumbled upon their booth at Creativation earlier this year and I was blown away. I fell in love with their poppy papers and intricate dies. 
Today I have something little different than intricate dies and poppy papers ;) I am using the Many Angels stamp set along with Angel with a star die and Wishes stamp set. 
As well I used some Alexandra Renke paper. 

To make the card you will start by die cutting the angel on cream panel. (I left off the star) and you will use the negative image. Once the angel is die cut, use your MISTI to stamp the sentiment and the heart. The heart is from a different angel image from the set, but I only inked the heart and masked off the rest. Stamp it few times with Versamark in order to get nice impression and emboss with gold embossing powder. 
Use mounting tape to adhere to card base made from Alexandra Renke paper. Use the MISTI to align the panel into the corner of your card base. 

Blog Hop Details:
Hope you are following the blog hop and finding a lot of inspiration, as well as enjoying all the ideas. If you are following the hop along, you have probably arrived from My Sweet Petunia's blog and your next stop will be the amazing Karin (you don't want to miss either of their creations!)
