People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

So Thankful for You...

Good morning!

This is my first post as a Design Team member for Great Impressions Stamps, and I'm so pleased to be here sharing with you!  
I've been stamping with GI stamps for many years - they were among the first I owned!
I'll be posting a new GI post each Saturday - hope you will drop by and visit!

I've had this sweet image for a long time, and have used it often.  Yesterday, while debating on what to create, I decided to go with something 'thankful' for an after-Christmas greeting.
However, a single layer for easy mailing was also necessary, so here's what I did:

The image and sentiment were stamped where I imagined a floor and wall to be.
After stamping the image, the 'floor', 'baseboard', and 'photo frame', were drawn lightly in pencil. All coloring on the focal panel was done prior to finishing the image.  The image was stamped on blue, tan, and white, colored, fussy cut, and adhered to image - lots of paper piecing took place.

Voila!  A one-layer card was born, that has a fun dimensional look.
Give it a try sometime!

Be sure to check out the Great Impressions Blog, for daily inspiration from the GI team!
Be sure to enter our January Challenge - it will begin tomorrow!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs & blessings,
Patti J.
