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

With Mother's Day this weekend, I was inspired to create a Mother's Day card!!

I had so much fun coloring the image in!  I love rorses!!

I think this card turned out to beautifully!!
I also add the Happy Mother's Day (B150) sentiment!!

Happy Mother's Day ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share another Mother's Day card that features one of our Newest Stamps ...  the F631 Bear with Flowers along with the B190 Mother's Day Sentiment, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.


I stamped the Bear with Flowers on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image with my Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. To get the darker brown color for the Bear I also used Vintage Photo Distress Ink for my watercoloring. Using one of my circle dies I outlined a half circle and added the sky background around the Bear with Flowers. White Liquid Pearls was applied to the center of all the flowers.

I stamped the Mother's Day Sentiment under the Bear with Flowers and added the ground cover. This is the same sentiment I used last week. I'm sure you are looking at the sentiment and wondering why it looks so different. Well ... I have a tendency to cut my stamps, and that is what I did with the sentiment as I wanted it to be one line.


That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great Impressions! I hope you will check out and play along with this months Great Impressions Challenge. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Wishing all of the Mom's a very Happy and Joyful Mother's Day!

Until next week ... Enjoy!

Unique

Hello!Leah here and I have a card that would suit lots of occasions but would also be a great one to give your mom or some other special lady in your life.


I used the fun Stylistic Peacock (H285) for my main image and used watercolors to color it. It has a great matching sentiment called Unique (E893). I kept it pretty simple as the image can really speak for itself and just mounted it on some cardstock and patterned paper after using Distress ink on the edges of the focal panel. A bit of twin finishes it off.

Listen up...

Hello and happy Great Impressions Tuesday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by to see the fun card I made with Great Impressions Stamps this week!
Today I'm featuring a card made with a new stamp called Dog & Bird G534 and the Cloud Stencil.  I decided on no sentiment on the outside so I could use it for any purpose.  The papers I've had hanging around my craft room for awhile and are nice and bright so I thought they would be perfect!

Well, thank you for stopping by today!   Make sure you check out our current challenge

One Layer Mother's Day


Hi, friends!  I'm back today to share a card using some beautiful stamps from the Great Impressions online store.  Since Sunday is Mother's Day, I thought I'd share a one layer Mother's Day card today.  Take a peek...


This image I used for this card is H255 Watercolor Flowers.  I colored it with markers before stamping.  Liquid pearls were added to the centers for more texture and shine.


After coloring and stamping the image twice, I stamped my sentiment--D350 My Mother.  Some pearls were added to anchor the sentiment.  I then rounded the corners of the card, and it was done!  I hope you like it--I really do!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you think!


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Spring Peeking Puppy

Happy Friday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

I love how this card turned out!
For my main image I used the adorable Peeking Puppy (H264)!!
Isn't this puppy adorable?!

Opened up:
I stamped the Flower Bouquet (J110) on the pretty designer paper and then used my Copics to add color to the image.  Just to make it stamp out a little more.

I also stamped one of the butterflies from the Butterflies and Hearts (E563) stamp on the upper part of the same pattern paper, but this time with a similar ink color to the paper, as I wanted the butterfly to kind of blend it!


A close-up look of the cute puppy:


So adorable!!

Happy Mother's Day ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share a Mother's Day card featuring the F440 Spring Tea Cups and B190 Mother's Day Sentiment, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.


I stamped the Spring Tea Cups on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image with my Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. Once complete, I fussy cut the image out and layered it on the background I created with 3D Foam Tape.


I stamped the Mother's Day Sentiment on the tag, colored in the flowers to match those on the Spring Tea Cups and used my Tiny Attacher to staple the sentiment in place. After adding a bit of Lilac Twine I attached the whole panel to my card base, and then stamped part of the Spring Tea Cups on a coordinating envelope.

That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great Impressions! I hope you will check out and play along with this months Great Impressions Challenge. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Until next week ... Enjoy!

Spring Meadow


Hi, all!  It's time for me to share another creation using some fun rubber stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Take a peek at my offering today...


I used F496 Meadow Border and A55 Bee to create a fun springtime scene at the bottom of my focal panel.   I colored the images in with glitter gels pens, then added a faux stitched border.


The sentiment is D466 Time for Yourself.  I stamped it, matted it, then added it to the focal panel with dimensional foam.  A few blue glass bubbles were added for a bit more finish.


I think this is super fun and fresh!  What do you think?  I would love for you to let me know by leaving a comment below!


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
