Feel Better Soon!

Good Afternoon!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Stamp TV, For Ruth, hosted by the very talented Judy Woodland .......not too mention a very dear friend!

Gina's Mom has had some recent surgery so Judy decided to round everyone up and let her know she is being thought of, how sweet is that?!?!

Here is my card:

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets, Stately Flowers 8 and Signs Of Spring.  I saw this design on Pinterest and it looked awesome, unfortunately it may have lost a little something in translation.  It's kind of 'triple stamping' but not.  lol


 I wanted to keep the images mostly black and white and just add one simple POP of color.
I really just love the whole idea of Judy's Challenge, she's so thoughtful!  One more reason why I love her so.
Thanks for popping in!

Life Is Art

Happy Tuesday!  On the Great Impressions Blog today!

Back again today with a happy little card!

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment, E792 Life Is Art.   I wanted the sentiment to stand out, so I made a background using the Masking Tape Technique;  placing masking tape on your ink pad and smoothing down, then applying the inked tape to your card stock.  I wanted to make you feel that this creation was a piece of art hanging on a wall.  Ribbon and little bows and pearl accents.
Still a little bit of time to get in on our Monthly Challenge, To Use Your Favorite Stamp!  And when you use your favorite Great Impressions stamp link it right to our Customer Gallery, where at the end of the year you could win some fabulous prizes just for being a loyal customer!
Thanks for coming by!

Merry Christmas In July

Ho Ho Ho .....less than 5 months away, don't panic!

This card will be entered into the Challenge at Dies R Us, Christmas In July.

I saw this design and layout over on Pinterest and knew I wanted to CASE it.  Using some great red and green polka dot Designer Paper from my stash I created some hand cut panels.  Sentiment from Gina K Designs, Wishing You Joy.  The sentiment banner was made using MFT Blueprints #12 die. (although I did hand notch one end).  Added a big bold green button and lots of Jute Twine and the card was completed.  That button will add postage for sure!
I do like the rustic flavor of this card, must be the Kraft panel and Jute Twine!
Thanks so much for coming by, appreciate you doing so!

I Pick You

Hello Again!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at MFT, Sketch and Color.
Here is my card:
I used the MFT stamp set, Pure Innocence, I Pick You and the Blueprints #12 die set.  I think she is just the sweetest!   I made a frame and added texture using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The flowers were made using the dies.  Image colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut out and popped up using 3D Pop Dots.
Using a Glaze Sakura Pen I added black centers to her sweet little posies.
I hope she brings some joy to someone in need of a little cheer.
Thanks for stopping by, love it when you do!
