Wonderful Wednesday with Joni


It's almost Halloween and today I have these adorable H260 Halloween Puppies from Great Impressions. 
I added the  E809 Batty Moon in the corner with some glassy glaze for accent.
I colored them with some Distress markers and framed them in white to contrast the black spooky background.

Peace, Love, Joy


Hello stamping friends. Leah here today and I have my very first Christmas card of the year to share with you. 


I used the super cute Branch with Bulbs (H216) image and colored it with Copics. I then trimmed it out with scissors and a craft knife. I love how the sentiment is part of the image. I added some lace and sparkles to make it special. I hope you like it!

Sweet Birthday Card

Happy Monday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

So I decided to take a little break from all the Halloween projects to create a sweet birthday card.  My daughter's little dance friend had a birthday party a few weeks back.

I thought this card was perfect for her:
Isn't the image sweet?!  Perfect for any little girl!
I used the G398 Birthday Angel!
I added a bunch of sparkle to the image!

I also used the "Happy Birthday" tag from the G483 Tags set!

Friday Fun with a Thanksgiving Card

Hello Everybody!

Katy here, and I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you today using stamps from the Great Impressions Online Store.  :)


I used these stamps to create this card: E551 Too Cute Pumpkins and D330 Happy Thanksgiving.

I used light modeling paste mixed with a re-inker and a stencil to create the dots in the background.  I used glitter around the circle.  For the sentiment I stamped it then cut it out to fit the shape that it is on.  

Thank you for stopping by!  For more inspiration be sure to check out our Facebook Page and our Pinterest Boards!  :)  And check out our Monthly Challenge!

Christmas Tag

Hey, y'all!  I hope everyone is having a great week and a wonderful day!  I'm back today with another creation using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I've got a Christmas tag to share with you--it's NEVER too early to start holiday crafting!!!

More detail photos can be found on my personal blog HERE.

For my focal panel, I did a little collage stamping with G140 Pine Branch and D281 Berry Sprig.  I find that when I do collage stamping, it's best to employ generational stamping as well.  This adds more texture to your panel.  I finished this portion of the tag by sponging the edges and adding part of F249 Warmest Greetings, embossed in sparkly black, as my sentiment.  A few pearls were the perfect elegant accent to highlight this beautiful sentiment.

After that, all that was left was to add my stamped and embossed panel to the glittery red tag base!  Some black stitched ribbon tied in the black sentiment and matting from the tag.  I love the final product!  I'm one tag closer to being done with my holiday crafting now! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to  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!

Fall Watering Can


Hello Great Impressions fans :) Leah with you today. Are the leaves changing where you are? We don't have a lot of trees that change where I live, but we do have a few and they are very pretty. In my front yard we have a big maple tree and it's my favorite. For my card I pulled out the sweet Watering Can of Flowers (D362) image and made a fall card.


I also added some butterflies using the Flitting Butterflies (A32) and my sentiment is called Playful Thinking of You ( B195). I colored my image with Copic markers. I hope you like it!

Friday Fun with a Little Ghost

Hello Everybody!

Katy here and I am sharing with you one more Halloween card.  I love this house so much-it's definitely one of my favorites!


I used the following stamps: F561 Halloween House, C406 Little Ghost, and A134 Halloween Greetings.

I put pop dots under the house so the little ghost could peek out easily.  Ribbons and a spider punch finish the bottom of the card.  The candy corn is a button.  For more information on this card-be sure to check out my blog. :)

Spotlighted Sunflower

Hi, friends!  I'm back today with another card using beautiful stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a fun autumnal card using one of my favorite techniques--spotlighting!  Take a peek at the completed project!

More detailed pictures on my personal blog HERE.

This is actually a pretty easy effect to create.  To start, you just need to stamp your image (G196 Sunflower Garden was used here) twice--once on a colored paper (I chose kraft) and once onto a neutral paper (I used cream).  

You just punch a shape out of the colored paper, color in the image on the neutral paper (I used Sakura glitter gel pens), line them up, and adhere them together with dimensional foam to create a layered look.  You don't have to use the dimensional foam, but I think it adds a little something.

After that, all you have to do is add it to a panel and put whatever bits you'd like for added texture!  I added part of sentiment E842 Happy Day to my panel along with some enamel dots and a bit of twine on the kraft pot.  I love it!

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to  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!

Blowing Wishes


Good day stamping friends! Leah here today and I have a sweet fall birthday card to share with you today using the super adorable image called Harry Blowing Seeds (F587).

I colored Harry with Copics and for the dandelion he is blowing I added some gold jelly roll sparkle. My sentiment comes from the Tags (G483) image and the cute little banner is Flag Banner (E846). Some layering and a few clear embellies finish my card. I hope you like it.

Friday Fun with Pop Out Ghosts!

Hello Everybody!

Katy here today to show you some Halloween Spirit!  I am here to show you how you can put your Great Impression Stamps to good use on a Pop-Up Card.


Stamps Used:  G379 Spider Web

I stamped a lot of ghosts in black distress ink.  Then I used versamark and re-stamped over the ghosts.  I added glow in the dark embossing powder and heat set.  If the 2 images did not line up-that is ok.  In the daylight you can't really see the glow in the dark part.  If you can then it just adds a spooky touch! :)

Here is the front of the box.  In the picture above the spider web panel hides it.


 And here is the card when the lights get turned out.  Soooo Spoooky!


For more details on this card-stop by my blog.  

Be sure to check out our Facebook Page and Pinterest Boards for more inspiration.  And be sure to check out the sale and contest going on right now.  Click here for that! :)

And check out our awesome SALE-there is still plenty of time to get your spooky stamps!
