How to make simple graphic handmade cards using cut paper triangles and die cut numbers and letters from Impression Obsession. Check out lots of ideas and inspiration at my blog.
Each one of today's cards is a little bit different, but they all start with the same thing. TRIANGLES. Using some simple cutting, you can create a colorful background for any type of cards. 
  • Cut out a cardstock square. 
  • Then, lay the square on your paper trimmer on the diagonal, trim to make two large triangles, and then trim each triangle to become two smaller ones. 
  • Repeat for four different sheets of cardstock, and you'll have triangles for a variety of cards. 
  • Reassemble the cardstock square onto the card base, using a triangle from each color, and then finish the card.
Happy 10th birthday card, or change this number to any age using number and birthday word dies from Impression Obsession. Visit my blog to see more ideas using these fun paper crafting products!
For the first card, I made a simple square shaped card and added a die cut sentiment on top. Simple, simple, right? 
Happy 45! Use this idea for a birthday card for any age, using die cut numbers and words from Impression Obsession. This is a fun use for all the extra pieces you have left over when die cutting number and letter sets. Visit my blog to see more ideas!
Next up, I used up lots of little bits of numbers from other projects for a fun jumbled look. (I'm pretty sure it means, "You're HOW old?" ;) 

And for the last card, I simply changed the layout of the four triangles. 
Make a clean and simple birthday card for any age with number and word dies from Impression Obsession and simple cut paper triangles. Visit my blog to see just how to put this card together, plus lots more ideas!

I'm not really so much a dog person - but how can you go wrong with these sweet faces? Plus these pooches have so much fun potential, because they sit just perfectly on the edge of a piece of paper, or popping out of a box, flower pot, gift, and more. And because these are the friendliest pooches around, they coordinate perfectly to pair them up together. 
You are the bow to my wow - what an adorable sentiment for dog themed handmade cards! You'll love making cards and paper crafts with these dog stamps from Impression Obsession. Visit my blog to see more ideas with these furry friends!
For the second card I created, I popped the pup out of the negative space from a die cut circle. Isn't he sweet with his tiny heart collar? I used a white pen to add a few little details to the dogs on today's cards. Just a little dot on each eye and a little swish on their noses finishes off their cute little faces perfectly.

Big Foot themed handmade card idea with stamps from Impression Obsession.
For the base of this card, I used my favorite cloudy sky technique using the Cloud Border Die Set. (You'll find more about this technique on this blog post.) It's a fun technique whether you want to create a bright sunny sky like this card, or a dark ominous sky using darker inks. It's fun to play around with different colors and layers.
