It's so much fun creating with dies so I love Impression Obsession Die-cuts Days! 

The Happy Pie Season sentiment pairs nicely with the Large Love Pie die cuts.  Don't you just love the decorated crust and I think the steam is a fun touch.  I framed my pie on the Crazy Stitched Set and that was it, it's all ready to send out for Thanksgiving!!


For a full list of participants check out the Impression Obsession Blog!


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week!

Kia is our host for the Inspiration Challenge this week and she has chosen a beautiful site to inspire us!  I was inspired by a phone case.  My card is in the SCS gallery with the link to the photo if you would like to see it.

Here is what I used today:


I hope you have a lovely weekend!

It's a Girl Thing and Last day of Dare to Get Dirty

Today is the last day of Dare to Get Dirty AND I am hosting the Free 4 All Challenge.  My Challenge is to add a girl or a gang of girls to your project!  I am combining both cards for DTGD and F4All.  

So first up is for Lydia's Challenge.  I can't tell you what her challenge is but I can tell you that for the F4All, I decided to feature BFF Girl Gang!  The one positive thing about 2020 is that I have learned to ZOOM and Craft with friends!  It's really livened up my quiet craft room! I had a lot of fun paper piecing colorful jeans for my crafty gang!


Next up I played along with Ceal's DTGD Challenge.  Again, I can't tell you what her challenge is but I can tell you that I thought it would be fun to ink up BFF Elise for the F4All Challenge.  I adore the Coordinating Die for Elise.  It's so much fun to create a bold background and then pop up the image!  There's no way I would try to fussy cut this long-legged beauty!  The sentiment is from the fun peacock set, Let's Shake Our Tail Feathers  and lastly, I used Life Changing Blender Brushes and Triple Weave Stencil for the bright border.

For more fabulous products from Picket Fence Studios check out the store HERE!


I just want to say thank you for stopping by even when there isn't a GIVEAWAY!  I appreciate your comments so much!  So I have decided to do a Giveaway!  I have a small collection of never used and gently used stamps and stencils.  I am going to split up the items and draw two winners!  All you have to do is comment on my Dare to Get Dirty Posts!  I started posting on August 22nd and the last day will be the 28th.  Leave a comment on any or all of the posts by August 31st.  The more days you comment the more chances to win!  I will post the winners on Saturday, Sept 5th so make sure to stop back by so I can get your info!

A Trip Outside for Dare to Get Dirty Day 6 plus Giveaway

For today's Dare to Get Dirty Challenges, I am taking a trip outside!  

The background for this card was my mop-up piece for my Rainbow Bridge Card.  Don't ever wipe up your craft mat before sopping up all the amazing inky colors!  :)  This is for Jeanne's fun challenge and here is what I used:


I am learning to make more than one background or sentiment panel at a time!  It sure saves time later on.  For this Country Tree card, I stamped it twice in different colors.  I love how it looks with two different colors.  When I originally stamped the background, I made a Fall one and a deep Spring green one, and then I placed them in my Unfinished Project Box for a later time. And today is that time!  All I had to do was place it on a card base, add Stay Strong, and a bit of twine!

I just want to say thank you for stopping by even when there isn't a GIVEAWAY!  I appreciate your comments so much!  So I have decided to do a Giveaway!  I have a small collection of never used and gently used stamps and stencils.  I am going to split up the items and draw two winners!  All you have to do is comment on my Dare to Get Dirty Posts!  I started posting on August 22nd and the last day will be the 28th.  Leave a comment on any or all of the posts by August 31st.  The more days you comment the more chances to win!  I will post the winners on Saturday, Sept 5th so make sure to stop back by so I can get your info!

Buzzin By with Day 5 of Dare to Get Dirty

Wow!  It's Day 5 already!  

This is for Tracie's Challenge and the design was inspired by this week's Art Nudge #24.  When I saw the Art Nudge at first I thought I was going to focus on the color palette but then I realized I have this Cute Truck die set.  I got tickled at the idea of the adorable Bee chasing after the truck overflowing with Tiny Flowers!  I completed the scene with one of the Big And Little Suns and Stitched Clouds.  Lastly, I added part of the Just Buzzin By sentiment and added "to say hi!" on the inside.

A Bird and a Birthday for DTGD Day 4 & Giveaway

I have two cards to share for Day 4 of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at Splitcoaststampers!

I can't get enough of this super sweet Songbird Set by Picket Fence Studios.  I drew a little tree limb for the bird to perch on and then I used the smaller puffy clouds on the Layers of Clouds Stencil.  If I could I would put a cat, a bird and clouds on every card I create!  Well, maybe that would not hold everyone's interest!  Haha!

Next up is this fun Birthday card.  I used a Clearanced die set to create this fun shape.  I simply added the Happy Birthday sentiment, a little pink tulle and some enamel dots and that was it!  Pictured below are some lovely images that can be purchased along with the Birthday sentiment.  Just click a photo and it will take you right to the store!  Or you can click the link to the Alesa Baker Collection.

Old is New and More Dare to Get Dirty

Today is Old is New Day at Impression Obsession!  Most of these older stamps are new to me and I love them! I heat embossed the Spyro stamp and then popped up the sentiment which is from the Journal Jargon 7.

It's also the third day of Dare to Get Dirty at Splitcoaststampers so here are the cards, I created as samples.

This was inspired by Polly's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.

Make sure to stop by the Impression Obsession Blog to see what new project the designers have created just for you!


I was inspired by LuvLee's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge for this card and I am also playing along with this week's CAS Challenge!
Here is what I used:
And there is Wink-of-Stella on the rainbow but you really can't see the sparkle. 


My last card is for Misti's fun Dare To Get Dirty Challenge.
For this card I used:
