You'll Have S'more Fun With These New Stamps and Dies! {Impression Obsession}

Summer is just around the corner and in my world that means rocking chairs, campfires and stuffing my face with s'mores. Handmade cards should reflect the things we love, so I'm all in for these brand new campfire and s'mores stamps and dies from Impression Obsession

This s'more themed handmade card is fun for summer using stamps and dies from Impression Obsession. Stop by my blog to learn how to make the inky cloud sky and see s'more fun cards!
Can we talk about this cloudy sky background for a minute? I'm always impressed when I see beautiful inky clouds as I admire handmade cards. This die called Cloud Border makes it SUPER SIMPLE to make a cloudy sky. I am anxious to try it again and add some more shades of blue into the mix. 
Here's how to create this cloudy sky:

  • Die cut the Cloud Border onto a piece of cardstock. You're going to use this piece like a stencil.
  • Lay the stencil on the card panel along the edge where your lowest clouds will lie. 
  • Ink the panel with a sponge dauber from the bottom of the panel, up to the cloud stencil. 
  • Then, move the stencil up a little, slide it over or angle it differently. 
  • Add just a little more ink below the stencil to create your next row of clouds. Repeat to create as many clouds as you want. 
In the image below, you can see my card, plus the die and stencil I created.

For the next s'more card I created, I heat embossed (in white) the new Stars background stamp onto watercolor paper. Then I just added some beautiful watercolor over the panel to make those stars POP. I created a simple little s'mores scene on top of a vellum circle to establish a focal point.
This handmade card was made with s'more themed dies from Impression Obsession. I added an inky background and white embossed stars using a new background stamp from Impression Obsession.
