Get Well Birds

Hi, friends!  I'm back today with another card using some of the NEWEST stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  This one is another "get well" card that uses our stamp of the month and a fun texture stamp from the newest release.  Come and see!

Here's my card~

Great Impressions products used:

I don't know how easily this card could be mailed because of the flowers, but it would be perfect for taking to a friend who is under the weather!  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and added just a touch of glitter to the flowers and the bird...breath?  I don't know what to call that! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

Country Scene


Hello there! Leah with you today I have a fun little scene card to share with you using a fabulous image from the Great Impressions store called Country Setting (G344). I just love this sweet scene and colored it using Copic markers.


For my background panel I covered the whole thing using the fun Chicken Wire (E96) image. My sentiment is called Roots of Hope (C298). Some twine, stitching and a bit of punched border finish off this peaceful card. I hope you like it!

Cute Spider

Happy Monday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

Up again this week, I have another Halloween card!

This week I used the the Spider Web (G379) and Itsy Bitsy Spider (AA23) as my main image!
I combined the two images, by drawing a line from the spider to the web!
I also used a gelly roll pen, in black, to add shimmer to the web!

For my sentiment on top, I used the Halloween Greetings (A134) stamp!

Friday Fun with a Little Witches' Brew!

Hello Everybody!

Katy here, and I am excited that Halloween is coming up!

Today I am using one of my favorite Halloween stamps of all time!  It is G433 Witches Brew from the Great Impressions Online Store.  I love that it is a silhouette (which is trendy right now).




I used a border punch for the web border.  The sentiment is B217 Have Some Brew.  I stamped it on the colored cardstock in black ink.  Then I cut out each word and outlined each square so that the words would stand out better against the background.

Right now our challenge is going on-so be sure to check it out and upload your card!  We would love to see it! :)


For  more inspiration check out our Facebook page and our Pinterest Boards! :)

You've Been Booed


I absolutely love making Halloween cards. 
This card was no exception. 
I stamped the Great Impressions G379 Spider Web with black craft ink and then heat embossed with a black sparkly embossing powder. 
I added a punched out spider and covered him with Wink of Stella black glitter.
 I stamped the B236 Booed Sentiment and also heat embossed that as well.
 I created the background with distress inks and a sponge dauber.
Our challenge this month is to Get Your Spook On!

Autumnal Flowers


Hello stamping friends! Leah joining you today! I don't know about you but I can hardly believe we are into the month of September. I have to admit fall is not my favorite season but I can deal with it a lot better when flowers are involved :) So I pulled out a pretty floral stamp and chose some autumn colors to ring in the season.

My flower image is called Watercolor Flowers (H255) and to color them that's just what I did using my Tombow markers. After they were colored and dry I fussy cut them and layered them together. For my sentiment I used the Tags (G483) set and to add a bit of interest and not totally let go of summer added some Flitting Butterflies (A32).

Be sure to join us in this month's challenge (click!) and if you use any GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery (click!). Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (click!) and maybe treat yourself to a few new images...did you know shipping is free over $25?!

Friday Fun-Is it Autumn?

Hello Everybody!

Katy here, and I am excited to show you this sweet autumn hello card using Great Impressions Stamps from their online store.

It isn't autumn where I live yet, but I thought for a moment some cooler temperatures would be nice! ;)



I used Great Impressions stamps G487 Homes and B151 A Little Hello.

I used gold embossing powder for the Homes and the sentiment.  There is something about using gold versus black.  I colored the stamp with craft markers.  For the edges I used some rust like embossing powder.  To finish this card I used a leaf gem.

For more inspiration check us out on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest .  Let's get ready for fall! :)

Get Well Dandelion

I'm back today with another card using stamps from the Great Impressions online store.  This card uses some stamps from our newest release!  It's a get well themed card--I find it good to keep these on hand. :)

Here's my card~

Great Impressions products used:

The dandelion was created by first stamping the stem image and then repeatedly stamping the flower stamp in different positions.  I added some flowers "blowing" across the panel, too, and then distressed the edges.  All it needed was a bit of glitter to accent it and a twine bow to "tie" it all together! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at this card!  Hop over to play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
