People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Thankful Autumn

Hi there! Welcome to release week at Great Impressions Stamps. I have a CAS card and a cool fridge magnet to share today using two new Great Impressions stamps. First up is the card:

 (Supplies - Stamp: (Great Impressions Stamps) Fall Garden. Cardstock: (PTI) Rustic White, Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Fine Linen Patterns Pack. Die: (PTI) Edgers Die #1. Other: Copic Markers, typewriter, baker's twine.)

The main image is so beautiful and detailed so I kept the colors and embellishments minimal. The artist of this stamp did an amazing job of capturing fall... I love it! I used my typewriter to create the sentiment strip.

Next up is a super easy fridge magnet using the new stamp Small Autumn. I die cut a frame using my Big Shot, then stamped the "Autumn" image on the bottom before coloring. This picture of my oldest son, Evan, and my sister is 5 years old... taken at a pumpkin patch in my home town. I trimmed the photo then sandwiched it between two frames, adhering it all together. Then I used an adhesive magnet on the back so it will stick to the fridge. Easy and oh so cute!

(Supplies - Stamp: (Great Impressions Stamps) Small Autumn. Die: (PTI) Fabulous Frames. Other: Copic Markers.)

And here it is, on the refrigerator next to two other magnets... the little boy on the right is Evan now (age 6!) and Jack is on the left (age 3). The boys love to clutter up the fridge with various drawings, magnets, and pictures. The poor "x" on the left fell victim to our puppy, Rocket... I can still see the teeth marks!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Eek!! Amazing work Erin! I love how you used the browns in your card... making the pumpkins pop! So pretty! Your magnet is a wonderful idea - the sentiment really compliments your photo!

Aww, what a cute kiddo -- and what a cute frame! I imagine the idea would work with all sorts of sentiments for all sorts of occasions.

I agree, simple coloring looked great. I forget about those simple projects like a frame for the fridge, or Grandma's fridge! Thanks, Erin.

Great idea! Love the fall card and the magnet with that sweet little fella is a great idea! As for the magnet...I used to have the same problem when my kids where little...that don't look that appetizing, so always wondered why the dog liked them!
