Wonderful Wednesday with Joni

Well there is nothing like wering flip flops in the summer.
 So I just love this image E797 Hanging Flip Flops from Great Impressions. 
I colored the flip flops with markers and added some Wink of Stella white to the flip flop straps.
 I added the Sentiment Hello Summer C366 embossed with white ink.

Paper Roses

I hope you are well stamping friends! Leah here today to share a card made with one of the very first stamps I fell in love with at Great Impressions was this lovely bouquet of flowers. They are perfect to color or paper piece!


I started with stamping the card base in a light gray ink using the beautiful Queen Ann Lace (E807) image. It gives such a light feathery look. I then decided to paper piece my bouquet which is the lovely Flower Bouquet (J110) image. For my sentiment I inked up just one of the little banners from the Tags (G483) set. Machine sewing and a few butterflies finished it off. I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Fun Friday with a Beach Frame!

Hello Everybody!

Katy here to share with you my end of summer project using the awesome stamps from the Great Impressions Online Store.

I decorated a paper mache picture frame.

 
I used the following stamps: F549 Hot Air Balloon, D404 Blowing Bubbles, and D421 Lucky Enough.

After I painted the frame, I made sand using some of my supplies.  I pop dotted the cute crab and the hot air balloon.  And I had to extend those awesome bubbles!  Too see a more in depth look into how I made this frame stop by my blog here.

Don't forget about our Monthly Challenge!  And if you are looking for more inspiration you can check us out on Facebook and Pinterest!

Here's my creation~

I used all these fun seashore stamps and the darling sandcastle to create a framed item to put out in my living room and I just think it is so awesome!  I LOVE this sentiment and I added just a bit of bling to finish it off.  This could even be sent as a gift. :)

Summer Fun


 I had some fun stamping on a small candle. 
This stamp was absolutely perfect as you will see in the next picture! 
I stamped E797 Hanging Flip flops onto tissue paper.
I colored the image with Distress Markers. 
Then I heated the tissue paper onto a small votive candle. 
It is perfect in the holder below:

Lollipop Flowers

Hello! Leah here today and I am sharing a project with you that isn't a card or tag :) The theme is something summery and to me when the weather finally warms up where I live my garden is the first thing on my mind. So this fun little project is what I came up with!


Looking through my Great Impressions Stamps I knew this adorable Watering Can of Flowers (D362) was the perfect image to use! I cut a cake pop or lollipop holder using my Silhouette and made some flower lollipops to go along with my watering can image. I colored the image with Copics and added the sweet Flitting Butterflies (A32) to my panel. I then used a paper piercer  to pierce holes all the way around my panel and hand stitched the boarder with some embroidery floss. I hope you enjoy my summery project! I can tell you my daughter loved it and after the lollipops were eaten the holder and flowers now live with her :) Have a beautiful day!

Summertime Fun with Bubbles

Happy Monday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

I am so excited that we are switching things up one week a month!
I love creating 3D projects with stamps!!

So with this week's "End of Summer Creations" in mind, I decided to alter a jar I have had sitting on my shelf for awhile!
My kids love blowing bubbles in summer, myself included!!

So I first created a label using the Summertime Flowers (F269) image and adhered it to the jar!

Then added some bubbles!!

How fun!

Friday Fun!

Hello Everybody!

Happy Friday!  Katy here, and I am excited to show you this Thank You card.



For the collage I stamped it and used black embossing powder.  Then I brushed on various inks.  For the stamp with the lady I restamped the image with just black ink.  I inked the stamp and then turned it into an "epoxy sticker."  I used pop dots underneath it.  

The simple elegance swirl and background are on the middle panel.  I love both of these stamps so much!  Lastly, I stamped the thank you part of the Tags stamp and cut out the words.  I used a pen to draw a square around each word.  Then I adhered the words to the clear tag.

For more details on how I made this card you can check out my blog here.

Our challenge is still going on!  The challenge this month is Animals.  Go here to link up!

Friendship: To Be Oneself

Hi, friends!  It's time for another post using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a card made with some of our NEWEST stamps and some bling I forgot I had in my stash!  I went for a blue and gray color combo to match the bling I re-found. ;)  Come and take a peek!


Here's my card~
More details on my personal blog HERE.


I stamped the flower image a few times and then the sentiment on top.  I then added the bling flowers and held them in place with liquid pearls.  I also added some glossy accents to the circular parts of the sentiment.  I LOVE it.  What do you think?

Sweet Little Girl

Hello stamping friends! Leah here and I have a card to share with you using some wonderful Great Impressions images. When I found this stamp I just had to have it as it reminds me so much of my little girl. I am amazed each day by her and she really is a miracle.


This sweet image is called Little Girl in Springtime (F466) and she was so much fun to color. I used Copics for my coloring. I also just adore this sentiment which is called Roots of Hope (C289). I added some rolled felt flowers and die cut foliage along with pearls and stitching. I hope to live that way each day! Have a beautiful creative day.

Floating By

Happy Monday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

I think the new Up Up and Away (H256) is such a cute/super fun stamp!
Perfect for those everyday projects!

I also used the new Just Floating (E648) sentiment!
I decided to break it up into 3 different pieces to make the sentiment kind of float around the image!

Friday Fun!

Hello Everybody!

Katy here and I am so excited to share with you this card featuring this cute little hedgehog taking a nap!  You can find this cutie and more in the Great Impressions Online Store.


For this card I used F557 Snoozing Hedgehog and B213 Happy Summer Days!  

I used Copic markers to color this cute little hedgehog-and I outlined his hair with a brown Copic.  I used light modeling paste and a sunburst stencil on the orange panel with the hedgehog and sentiment.  The bright colors and sunburst all say summer to me!

Sweet Day


Hi, friends!  It's time for another post using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a card made with some of our NEWEST stamps and I just adore the way this CAS creation turned out!


Here's my card~
More details on my personal blog HERE.


This butterfly image is just SO perfect--I love all the little flowers it's made up of!  The only thing I accented them with was a few liquid pearl dots.  The sentiment screams blackboard so I decided to do white embossing on deep gray to kind of go along with that feel.  What do you think?

Wonderful Wednesday with Joni

Today's card features some new stamps from Great Impressions.
 Isn't this hot air balloon fun?
I colored this stamp with copics and neatly trimmed it out to pop it up on foam dots. 
I used a cloud stencil to create the background. 
Then I added the sentiment E648 Just Floating below the balloon so it looks like it is floating by.

Lovely Lady

Hello Great Impressions friends! Leah from Paper Blossoms here and I am thrilled to be here with my first official design team card. Great Impressions carries a wide variety of stamps and when I found this one I fell in love with the timeless elegance and romantic feel of the image. I was so excited to color it!


I colored this gorgeous stamp called Lady in Love (G189) with Copics.  I debated about what color to make her dress and blue just seemed soft and romantic :)  I decided to leave off a sentiment and let the image do all the talking. I wanted a really ornate background for her so I used my Silhouette to cut an intricate background layer. I added some machine sewing and added a bit of the same blue in her dress to my flower embellishment. I hope you have a wonderful day!
