Dog and Birdie Notecard ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share a card that features one of our New Stamps ... the G534 Dog & Bird, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.


I stamped the Dog & Bird on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads, Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. After coloring this adorable stamp, I used a dauber to apply the blue sky surrounding the image. I layered my coloring on my embossed panel, and a kraft panel to frame the image. The final step was to add the twine and pop the completed panel onto my cardbase.


I left the card without a sentiment so I can personalize it, by hand, for my nephews high school graduation card. It's not your typical graduation card, I know, but I'm going to use it for that purpose.

That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great Impressions! I hope you will check out and play along with this months Great Impressions Challenge. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Until next week ... Enjoy!

Flowers for You!

Hello friends!  I'm just amazed at how fast this month is going by!  Here it is another Tuesday so this is Lorie from Live-Love-Laugh-Create 2 and I'm back to share with you another card made with a fun Great Impressions Stamp.
Look at that adorable F631 Bear With Flowers!  He's bringing a pot of lovely spring flowers to the birthday girl!  I love the way the papers mimic the sky and ground with the blue and flowered papers.  I've also used the C458 It's Your Birthday stamp which I clearly love because I use it often!  I decided to mimic the dots on the orange paper but in brown on some of the other papers and I think it gave the card a fun, happy look! Well, that is it for today!  

Well, there you have it!  I hope you'll stop by the Great Impressions Stamps blog to play along with our Blinged Birthday challenge!

Vera and Mable Having Coffee ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share a Birthday card that feature the H286 Vera & Mable Having Coffee plus E894 Coffee & Friends Sentiment, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.


I pulled out my Copic Markers for today's card. I had so much fun coloring Vera & Mable Having Coffee. A bit of fussy cutting and paper-piecing for Mable's flower and earrings, which I ran thru my Xyron Sticker Maker. I pulled the colors from my image to create the background, and then used some Liquid Pearls for the jewelry.


I then added the Coffee & Friends Sentiment to the inside of the card.

That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great ImpressionsI hope you will check out and play along with this months Great Impressions Challenge. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Special Thanks

Hello! Leah here today and I have a pretty thank you card to share with you.


Sometimes it is so nice to have an image and sentiment all in one! This one is called (G364) Spring Special Thanks. I stamped it onto watercolor paper and watercolored it. After I was done I used some Distress ink to ink it lightly and mounted it to my card base. A strip of glittery gold washi tape finishes it off.

Reach For Your Dreams!

Hello!  It is Tuesday so that means this is Lorie stopping in today. Once again I'm excited to stop in and share with you a card I made with some wonderful Great Impressions Stamps!  Next month my youngest son is graduating high school so I, of course, have some graduation craftiness to make...starting with this fun card!
Don't ya just love it?  Clean, simple, and a bit abstract in the coloring, don't ya think?  I've used two GI stamps the Cap & Scroll E326, and Dreams B180.  I used a Real Red cardstock base and a white for the layer.  The grid detailing was made with t-ruler that I purchased recently.  I like the look!  It may just be one of my favorite Great Impressions cards!

Well, that is what I have to share with you today!  Thank you for stopping by and make sure you hop on over to the Great Impressions blog to check out and play along with our current challenge!

Roses of Friendship


Hi, all!  It's Monday, so I'm back to share a card made using some of my favorite stamps from Great Impressions!  Take a peek...


I started by stamping G454 Rose Trio onto kraft cardstock and colored it in with colored pencils.  I added some liquid pearls for a bit more shine and to tie in the polka dot paper used on the card base.


The sentiment I used is E841 To Be Oneself.  I truly believe this is the definition of friendship!  I stamped it onto white cardstock, and then accented it with a few fun embellishments.


I really like the way this turned out.  I think the red, white, and green are a bit Christmas-y sometimes, but I feel that they work well here.  What do you think?  Please leave me a comment below to let me know!


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Blinged Birthday

Happy Friday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

Kendra from Luv 2 Scrap 'n Make Cards here today to share a Blingy card with you!!

I created my card with this month's Blinged Birthday Challenge in mind!!
 I stenciled the stars onto my cardstock using shades of pink distress inks.

I then stamped the beautiful Swirly Happy Birthday (E367) sentiment!!  I love the font used on this sentiment, so beautiful!!
I added a bunch of pink bling!  And as you can see in the bottom left of this picture, I also sprayed the card with some glitter spritz!  So it is VERY shimmery!!

Someone Like You ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share a Birthday card that feature the H257 Someone Like You Sentiment, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.


Leaving the Someone Like You Sentiment as my focal point for today's card, I pulled out some Coral, Smoked Sea Salt and Spearmint cardstock to create my background. 


Of course once I was done, I thought maybe I should have embossed the base panel. I love the clean and simple design which is perfect for putting in the mail. Loving this design I think I'm going to make a set of cards in different colors, and add that embossing that I left out (wink).

That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great ImpressionsI hope you will check out and play along with this months Great Impressions Challenge. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Birthday Birdie

Hi! Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you that also goes along with the current CRAFT challenge that Great Impressions is sponsoring this week.


I used some super cute new images for my card. The adorable pup and bird are called (G534) Dog and Bird and the matching sentiment is (G535) Early Bird. I watercolored the image and added some embossed edging to the sides. 


For some embellishment I added some gold washi tape and a few dew drops. Hopefully I don't forget anyone's birthday soon, but if I do at least I have a cute card, just in case :)

Owllo!

Good morning friends!  Today is Tuesday so this is Lorie and I get to share with you a fun card made with a Great Impressions Stamp!
There are so many times that I'm just looking for a 'hello' card and this super cute image is perfect!  This is called Owllo (G553).  I thought it would be fun to use blue paper up top of the card and then I embossed it with a cloud embossing folder.  The yellow scallop is reminiscent of the sun and then of course the leaf paper to ground it a bit.

Well, thank you for stopping by today!   Make sure you stop click over check out our current challenge!

Unique & Extraordinary


Hi, all!  It's Monday, so I'm back to share a card made using *NEW* stamps from Great Impressions!  I went CAS, yet shabby, and I hope it works.  Take a peek...


This card uses the *NEW* E893 Unique sentiment.  I stamped it, then added some color and sparkle with gel pens.  Some paper flowers accent the sentiment, which was added to a patterned card base.  A line of pearls adds more finish and an anchor for the sentiment.


That's it!  Totally easy peasy!  I hope you like it--I think it turned out to be pretty.  Please feel free to leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts! :)


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
