Loving Dies with Impression Obsession

 Hello and Happy Wednesday! 

Today we are sharing inspiration with Impression Obsession dies.  And let me tell ya, for someone who has been more of a stamp girl, I am loving these dies! You can find more 'die' inspiration on the IO blog.  

I have been having fun with these alpha dies.  I knew I wanted to use them and with a little Pinterest inspiration, came up with this tea-riffic idea!  I die cut the Tea/Cocoa Cup from light blue cs, colored the 'tea' bit of the die and then made a tea bag tag with the tag in the set.  To make the tea bag tag, I only used a portion of the tag die cut.  As I cut the faux stitching along the bottom of the tag off when I shortened it, I added the stitching back by using the Border Stitching Dies.  

The background panel is stamped with one of my favorite background stamps, the Gingham Cover A Card Stamp.  The panel was then diecut with the Crazy Stitched Die Set.  

The cup was grounded with a doily and washi tape.  The sentiment was die cut with the Alpha Typewriter LC Die.  I have officially become obsessed with this die!  Not too big and not too small, it is really versatile.  I have all sorts of ideas 'brewing' in my head, but time is limited.  

This card was actually the first card I made for today, but I had some sort of a 'brain malfunction' and posted this card earlier in the week, forgetting it was for today.  This is what really started my obsession with the Alpha Typewriter LC Die.  

I was inspired by Pinterest as well for this card.  I diecut the background panel with the same Crazy Stitched Die Set, then matted it with black cs.  I die cut lots of Ls, Os, Vs, and Es.  I glued the letters on for the falling in love effect.  The heart was done with a stencil.  

That's it for me!  Don't forget to check out the rest of the inspiration on the IO blog.  
Thanks for stopping by!
