Impression Obsession: Flowers for Friends

Hi everyone,
Happy Thursday and welcome to another Impression Obsession challenge. The challenge today (and for the next 2 weeks is "Flowers for Friends". I decided to use the Spirals background stamp along with the Happy Everything sentiment stamp.
I stamped the background on watercolor paper with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Once embossed I watercolored it, let it dry and trimmed to 4" x 5 1/4".
Next, stamped the sentiment onto black card stock with Versamark, embossed in white and trimmed to size. 
I assembled my card onto black card base.

Impression Obsession: Die cut obsession

Hello friends!

The Impression Obsession Design Team have set aside a couple days a month to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog
For my card today I used the You Make Me Happy die and Song Bird Branch die.
I die cut both from white glitter paper, then couple more times from regular white card stock and stacked them up to create more dimensional look. Then adhered to galaxy background and to white top folding card base. 
Quick and simple ;) 
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a creative day!

Today I am sharing two cards using the Cottage Corsage set, Cottage Garden background stamp and Awesome and Wonderful stamp set.
So, let's get started.
To make my card I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the flowers on two opposite corners using Midnight ink. Once stamped let it dry for few and then watercolor the images using the following ink pads/refills: Party Dress, Something Borrowed and Lime Rickey. I mixes small amount of shimmery paint into the reinkers to get the shimmer.
Next stamped the sentiment and embossed in white, cut to size and assembled my card.




For my next card I used Cottage Garden background. I stamped in on watercolor paper (hot press) using versamark and embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. Next watercolored using reinkers. I stamped the sentiment on black, embossed in white, trimmed to size and assembled my card.
