Baby Chick

Hello stamping friends! Today I have a fun card to share with you that uses one of the new Great Impressions images called F604 Baby Chick in Tulip.


Isn't this image sweet? I watercolored it using my Tombow markers and I added the pretty A149 Dainty Butterfly so that the little chick was looking at something. I hope you like it!

Easter Daffodils


Hi, friends!  It's time for me to share another creation using fabulous stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a card using some of our newest designs. I hope you like it!  Take a gander...


Since Easter is earlier in April this year, I decided to start my cards earlier as well!  This card was started with me stamping J115 Elegant Daffodils onto some white card.  I colored it in with Sakura glitter gel pens for some shine.  I then stamped part of B245 Wishing You A Happy Easter Sm. in the bottom of he panel.  I added some paper piercing and enamel dots for added texture.


I kept it super simple to draw the eye to the image.  I love the clean feel and the spring colors!  What do you think?  I hope you leave me a comment below and let me know!


That's all for me today!  I'll be back next Monday with more Easter goodness using stamps from the Great Impressions store.  I hope you join in our current challenge, and, if you use Great Impressions stamps, link them up in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

Great Impressions - Beautifully Monogrammed!

Happy Saturday to you all!

Today, I'm sharing a quick and easy set of monogrammed cards.  Did you know that Great Impressions carries these beautiful monograms?  I'm so impressed with them.
This week, I needed a quick and easy project, due to being sick.

Here's what I did, using Great Impressions Stamps: E612 Monogram Flourish W





I found some pretty papers from my a muse stash, and heat embossed the monograms in white embossing powder.  Layered the monograms, and popped them up with some
dimensional foam.  Ta da!  Easy peasy - did all three in 30 minutes!

Wouldn't this make a nice gift boxed set for someone special?

Be sure to join us in this month's challenge (HERE!) and if you use any GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery (Here)

Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (HERE) and treat yourself to a few new stamps!

Did you know shipping is free over $25?! 


Thanks for stopping by - see you next Saturday with a pretty spring creation!

Hugs,

The new E862 Valentine Ice Cream image is SUPER fun!

Wondeerful Wednesday with Joni

I had so much fun coloring this adorable image
from Great Impressions. 
I colored him with copics and die cut a circle to layer him on. 
I added the C340 Happy Birthday sentiment.

Pretty Flowers

Hello! I have a floral card for you today that uses one of my favorite images from Great Impressions. It's called J110 Flower Bouquet.

I decided to color with Copics this time and then trimmed out my image. My sentiment is called B195 Playful Thinking of You. When you want you sentiment to be on dry embossed paper the trick is to stamp first and then dry emboss ;) I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

Pansy Bough

Hello, friends!  Happy Monday!  I'm back again with another card that uses some fabulous stamps from the Great Impressions store!  For today, I've did some no line water coloring with a beautiful floral stamp.  Come and see...

More details on my personal blog HERE.

I started by stamping the image, G329 Pansy Bough, with light colored tan ink.  I then proceeded to use Distress markers and a water color pen to "paint" the image.  I did a bit of light blue water coloring around the image, too.

Next, I turned to create the card base.  I layered some cardstock and patterned paper, added some ribbon and a doily.  After the image was placed, I added a bow with a rhinestone center to the card.

I am very pleased with the final product!  This is only my second time doing no lines water coloring, and I am not 100% sure it looks amazing, but I do think it's rather pretty!  What do you think?  I hope you let me know in the comments below!

That's all for me today!  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!  See you again soon!

Garden Shed Easel Card

Hello!
Welcome to my Saturday blog post for Great Impressions Stamps.

This week, the GI Design Team has been showcasing fun card folds.  If you've
not peeked in at the GI blog this week, go back to Monday, and check out
everyone's great cards!

My choice was an easel card.  If you have never created an easel card,
let me show you how easy it is! The stamps that I used are: Great Impressions E684 The Path to a Friend's House, and Great Impressions H243 Garden House.
Come on, let's make one!

First, decide what size card you are going to make, and in what orientation your
card will be.  I made an A2 sized card, in portrait orientation.  Cut your main
card base to 4.25" x 11".  Score at 2.75" and at 5.5".  Your card will look like this:



Now, cut a piece of cardstock measuring A2 size (5.5" x 4.25").



Add adhesive of choice to the folded section of your card base, as shown.
I used a two sided tape, as it was more visual than a clear tape runner.




Remove the strips, and adhere your 5.5" x 4.25" cardstock, matching up all lines.
When finished, your card will look like this.


Next, cut another panel a bit smaller, and begin decorating, coloring, etc.
I have a friend with a new potting shed. It's totally adorable, and this card will be in the
mail to her tomorrow!

Here is what the front looks like.


Here is a view with the easel front in place.  I carried the clear glass 1/2 beads over from
the front, into the inside of the card, to hold the easel up.  Our verbage is written
in the small section above the 5 beads.

Here's a view looking down, at the darling GI sentiment!

See how easy it is?  Give it a shot!
What a fun way to send a greeting to that someone special!

Hope that you will become a follower of the Great Impressions Blog - the
DT works hard to bring wonderful daily inspiration for you!

I know that you'll want to add these and many more GI stamps to your collection,
so hop over to the store and look around - it's worth the trip!

Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (HERE) and treat yourself to a few new stamps!
