Flopping Fabulous

Happy Friday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

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

For my card today, I thought I would use the Hanging Flip Flops (E797)!  I just love summer, its so nice and relaxing to throw on a pair of flip flops!
I stamped the fun flip flop image twice, to make it look like they are hanging on a wash line across my card!

 I colored them in fun bright colors!  And finished off my card by adding the super fun Flopping (D520) sentiment!!

Owllo

Hello! Today I have a cute card to share with you today. 

I love images that combine an image with a sentiment. Makes a cute card easy to make! This one is called (G533) Owllo and I colored it with Copic markers. Some patterned papers and sequins and a couple of hand cut banners finish it.

Good friends ...

Good morning all! Ruza here to share a friendship card that features the Good Friends Sentiment (H180), available at Great Impressions Stamps.


The Good Friends Sentiment was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink which I colored my Marvey Markers, pallet, water and paintbrush. Once done, the panel was cut out with a pierced rectangular die. I also used the die on some red and green scraps. All of the panels where crisscrossed and layered on white cardstock. I added black rhinestones to each corner, and then created faux piercing in between the rhinestones.  


Make sure you you check out, and play along with, this months Great Impressions Challenge ~ Anything Goes. Remember, if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer GalleryThat is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps froGreat Impressions

Until next week ... Enjoy!

Enjoy the Day!

Happy Saturday, Great Impressions Stamps fans!  Julie here again today with a bit of mid-challenge inspiration for you.

Great Impressions Stamps has an Anything Goes Challenge each month, and the inspiration for it this month is a Patriotic mood board.



All that red, white, and blue -- plus, those sparklers, put me in a very patriotic mood!

Using #F587 - Harry Blowing Seeds and #G483 Tags, I created this card...


I colored F587 - Harry Blowing Seeds (or in this case, sparklers) with Copic markers.  The tag was stamped with blue ink and fussy cut.

Thinking of You!

Happy Saturday, fellow stamp lovers!  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  I am happy to be back for another 6 months with Great Impressions Stamps!

I have a "thing" for Harry, the delightful hedgehog, found in the Great Impressions Stamps Store.  Today, he is riding in his own flower filled red wagon.



This card uses E875 - Harry with Daisies and B195 Playful Thinking of You.

I colored E875 - Harry with Daisies with Copic markers.  I cut the playful Thinking of You out with a cloud die to make the card more playful.

Relax ... Unwind ...

Good morning, and Happy 4th of July to all of our US Followers!

Ruza here to share a card that features the adorable Beachy Penguins (F542) and State of Mind Sentiment (D506), available at Great Impressions Stamps.


These Beachy Penguins are so adorable I couldn't resist playing with them. I stamped the penguins a couple of times on white cardstock and DP to do a little paper-piecing. The rest was colored with Copic Markers, and Distress Ink was used to create the sky and color in the sand. Circle Nestabilities dies were used to frame the main image of the penguins prior to paper-piecing. Next I popped the cut-out panel onto my background with 3D Foam Tape.


After adding the State of Mind Sentiment on the bottom I created the sandy texture with Distress Ink and a dauber. The final step was to add 3D Crystal Lacquer to the glasses.

which starts on Wednesday, July 6th. 
Make you hop on over to check out all of the details.

Paper Roses

I hope you are well stamping friends! 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! This is definitely one of my past favorite cards!


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!

She leaves a little sparkle...

Morning friends!  Lorie here with you this morning.  Today is a bitter sweet day for me as it is my last post as a design team member with Great Impressions Stamps.  I've truly enjoyed working with their fabulous rubber stamps!  Today I share another blast from the past of a liquid sort...
This is the bottle tag that I made for the Cut Cardstock Challenge.  I really love this tag...it's so fun and cute! The Great Impressions Stamps I've used on this project are:  F323 Fashion Swirls and E880 Sparkle Seriously, who doesn't like the bubble of a Moscato d' Asti wine?

I'd like to thank Mynn the design team coordinator for Great Impressions Stamps, Deone the owner of GIS and my design team sisters.  It's been fun...thanks so much for having me! I hope I've left a little sparkle here on the blog!

Hello Goodbye...


Hi, all!  I'm back today to share my last card using stamps from Great Impressions for the Great Impressions design team.  I went shabby and sweet...or should I say tweet?  Take a peek...


I started by stamping and coloring G111 Roses and Birds with colored pencils. I stamped my sentiment, B152 Hello Friend, onto vellum, then stapled it to the image panel.  A few pearls accent the sentiment vellum for a bit more elegance.


I added this panel to a card base prepped with some patterned paper, a doily, and some pink seam binding ribbon.  I think this turned out beautifully, and I hope you agree!  Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I want to say another HUGE "thank you" to Deone and the gals here at Great Impressions!  I have been on this team for a few years now, and stepping down is difficult.  I need to take a step back so that I can finish my degree, and I'm grateful that they have been understanding of that.  I hope to see you all around blog land soon, but until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Never Give Up!

This is it.  My final post for this term.   This is Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. I have so enjoyed the ride!

For my last post, I decided to share one of the cards I used when I applied for the team.  It uses 2 Great Impressions Stamps that I purchased long ago.  They still bring me great inspiration, and they are still 2 of my all-time favorite stamps from ANY stamp company. 



This card features 2 Great Impressions rubber stamps.  They are:  E795 - Tricycle and  A145 - Never Give Up.

I colored E795 - Tricycle with watercolor paints and a very tiny paint brush. 

This Tricycle and Never Give Up sentiment inspired me to try out for this design team.  I am so glad I did!  It has been one of the more outstanding creative experiences I have had!  Thanks to Deonne, Mynn, and the whole design team for a wonderful term.

You still have a few days to enter this month's Anything Goes Challenge.  If you haven't yet, what are you waiting for?  And, don't forget to shop in the Great Impressions Stamps store.  You'll find many wonderful stamps that will inspire you.

A Look Back Week 2

Happy Friday Great Impressions Stamp Friends!

Kendra from Luv 2 Scrap 'n Make Cards here today to share some more favorite cards create by myself the last 3 months!!

We teamed up with CutCardStock back in April and I created this fun purse:

I just LOVE how it turned out!!!  I used Fun Flower (E788) and Hello Friend (B152) the sentiment!!

I also really admire this fun Flip-it card I created in April:

I love the sweet adorable Peeking Puppy (H264)!!

I also used the Hello Friend (B152) the sentiment, the beautiful Flower Bouquet (J110) and Butterflies and Hearts (E563) stamp!

May:

Such a gorgeous Mother's Day card!!
I used the beautiful Rose Trio (G454) stamp!  I just love this image!!

I also add the Happy Mother's Day (B150) sentiment!!

Next I picked this adorable Princess Birthday card:

I used the adorable F402 Princess Molly stamp, which actually was one of the stamps I recieved first when I started designing for GI a few years back!!

I also used the B240 Sweet Happy Birthday for the top of the card!
And the B192 Princess stamp at the bottom!

June:

I sometimes forget to used my stamps when scrapbooking!  So I was super excited to remember to used some awesome GI stamps on this layout of my daughter!!

I used the Sparkle (E880)  sentiment as my main focus!  
And stamped the  Queen Anne Lace (E807)  twice around the sentiment!

I look forward to sharing some more inspiring projects with you next term!!!
