Impression Obsession- Birthdays and Die Cuts!

 Hello Again! 

We are focusing on die cuts today at Impression Obsession.  Have fun checking out what the design team has made for today- you can find the list of designers on the Impression Obsession Blog.  

This month's new release has been chock full of dies!  Lots of them for birthday, and who doesn't need birthday goodies?!?! I am always in need of masculine cards and the new Sm. Candle Die works perfectly.  I die cut the candle out multiple times in peach, orange, light blue and dark blue.  I paired the candles with the gut busting birthday sentiment set, Birthday Sayings.  The background was stamped with Spiced Marmalade Oxide Ink and once dry, I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in IO Black Ink.  Gotta LOVE it!  The candles were added across the bottom of the card front and the flames were colored with Copics.  A few enamel dots finish this card.  

This next birthday card has a vivid emboss resist background~

The Sm. Candle is used again along with the fabulous sentiment die, Big Wishes.  I used the stacked die technique for the sentiment.  
The Candle Glows Stamp Set was perfect for this background.  I used Canson mixed media paper here and heat embossed the starburst image all over the background.  Then I used Ken Oliver Color bursts to watercolor the background.  I just love how this turned out.  I made sure to have a candle glow right where my candle flame would hit.  The whole background was spritzed with a shimmery spray.  The background panel was then die cut with the Crazy Stitched Rectangles Die.  
I am linking up to The Tic Tac Toe challenge- I have used a diagonal row- watercolor, yellow and large sentiment. I am also linking up to Addicted to Stamps and More for their birthday challenge- happy 9th birthday, ATSM!

Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration by heading over to the IO Blog!  Thanks for stopping by!
