Rainy Day

Hi there! Today I have a fun rainy day card using a super cute image called F605 Rainy Day Harry.


I watercolored the image using Tombow markers and a #4 round Winsor and Newton brush. For my sentiment I used the G483 Tags and selectively inked only the sentiment. My Tombow markers are also great for this!

TOADLY Cute New Stamps!


Hello again, friends!  I'm back with another card using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I'm sharing a CAS card that uses a fun new toad image--and a punny sentiment!  MY FAVE!!!  Take a peek...


I stamped the image, E864 Sweet Frog, directly onto my card base.  I decided to not color him in to keep the design cleaner.  The only thing I added was an enamel dot to the center of the flower.


I stamped my sentiment, D496 Toadly Hope, in the same green as the frog and then die cut it out with a circle.  I layered it onto a large scallop.  More enamel dots frame one side.


I just REALLY love this fun card!  The sentiment is TOADLY awesome, and I adore the simplicity of the color scheme, too.  I think it turned out so cute!  I hope you agree!  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. :)


That's all for me today!  I'll be back next Monday with another creation 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!

Get Well Louie!

Happy Saturday!
So glad you could drop by today!

I was in need of a get well card for someone at church, so this post features some fun 
get well stamps from Great Impressions.

I used Get Well Louie G520, and Just Duckin' C476 for this fun little
center easel card.


To create this card, I covered the card front with some designer paper from an old DCWV pad, 
and set it aside.  

The image was then stamped on white cardstock twice, and once on each of three patterned papers.  

One of the white panels was used as the base. 

The other white panel was where I colored the Louie, and fussy cut all of his pieces!
The beak and feet have glossy accents on them.

Also fussy cut, were the bed frames, pillow, and blanket.

Once the pieces were all cut, they were adhered to the white panel, trimmed, and matted.

Once I knew what size the focal panel was, I cut the card front on each end, and glued the small side strips down on the card, leaving the center section swinging free.  It was scored in half, and the
focal panel adhered to it.

The last step was to stamp and mat the sentiment.
It was adhered to the card using dimensional foam, and happily holds the easel piece upright!

Here is a photo showing the card flat for mailing in an A2 envelope.


Don't forget - about the GI challenges!
A brand new challenge for April went live last week. 
If you use 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?! 

Have a great weekend,

Happy Spring

Happy Thursday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

Most of the time when I start a card, I usually first pick the image, which is what I did with this card, but usually I just start coloring it!  Not this time, I pulled out my paper and picked out my paper first and colored my image based on the colors!

I love the F545 Spring Boots image!
It's a super fun image to color!

I also added the pretty A149 Dainty Butterfly!!
Along with the fun new B246 Happy Everything sentiment!!

So pretty!!
I just LOVE tulips!!

You can check out my project on my personal blog here.

Hello

Hi there! Today I have a light springy card to share with you.


I used the pretty new F358 Growing Tall Flowers and the cute little A94 Chick for my little scene. I colored the flowers and chick with Copic markers. I die cut some clouds, dry embossed them and stamped my sentiment B151 A Little Hello in the sky.

April Showers...


Hello again, friends!  I'm back with another card using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I'm featuring a fun spring image that I know you'll love as much as I do!  Come and take a peek...


I used F605 Rainy Day Harry as my focal image.  He was colored in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I think that a yellow raincoat is a fabulous choice--it reminds me of the raincoat I had as a child!  And hedgehogs are just so fun, don't you think?  Plus, come on!  That little birdie!!!


My sentiment, B195 Playful Thinking of You, was stamped and then punched and layered to look like a flower.  Because, you know, April showers bring May flowers! ;)


All of my elements were layered onto my card base and more layered flowers and leaves were added to finish it up.  I think this is so sweet--I hope you agree!  Please let me know what you think in the comments below!


That's all for me today!  I'll be back next Monday with another creation 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!
