Hello dear friends. I have another quick post for you today. This card was made using the Viva la Verve sketch for September week 2:

(A2: Stamps:  Verve (Happy Place); Copics; Die: Spellbinders)

I used the flower image and stamped off on the white panel to create the background. Then I stamped, die cut and colored one flower and mounted with foam tape. For the sentiment panel, I centered the sentiment and used the sprig on each side, again coloring with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a link to the challenge so you can join in the fun!


Happy Crafting!!!



Die Versions + Great Impressions: A Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Die Versions + Great Impressions designers' blog hop! We've got both talented teams hopping today with a chance to win prizes from both of these craft suppliers! Our theme for this hop is "Tis the Season" so get ready to see some beautiful holiday creations! You should have arrived here from Die Versions blog. If you haven't and would like to hop with us, please go to the Die Versions blog to see the entire hop list and to start at the beginning for the maximum chances to win!

I made two cards for you today with each card using a Great Impressions stamp and a Die Versions die.

The above card uses Great Impressions Chickadee on Winter Branch - G440 and Die Versions Sweet Spots - Winter Wishes – DVSS-016 die. I stamped and colored the Chickadee and then used the Sweet Spots die to cut the circle and the sentiment. I then measured and cut again on the silver paper. I matched up the silver and white words and then cut backgrounds and reversed them behind the words. 

For this card, I used Great Impressions Merry Christmas Sparkles – D378 and Die Versions Whispers - Sleigh Ride DVW-4x4x172. I used my Silhouette Studio to cut the swag and made a tiny double bow for the swag.

Thanks for stopping by today! Your next stop in the hop is Anne Temple’s blog! We hope you're inspired all along the way! Grab all the goodies used from the Great Impressions and Die Versions stores!

Hello to all of my Great Impressions friends! Welcome back for more inspiration from the Great Impressions store! It is the third Saturday in September and there is still time to join in our challenge! Here is a little something to hopefully inspire you!

(A2: Stamps: Great Impressions Stamps (Second Spring - E550)

I love to quill and showed you some 3D quilling HERE. I decided to make some fall leaves and use the Great Impressions sentiment Second Spring to go along with them. People have asked me if I mail my quilled cards and the answer is yes. I have purchased small boxes that they fit in and I just wrap in paper.

I have been asked to do a tutorial for people new to quilling, so be sure to come back on October 4th to learn how to make the leaf on this card! It will be loads of fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a bit of inspiration from Great Impressions.
