Great Impressions Blog Hop


Well, Hello!

I'm welcoming visitors for the Operation Write Home / Great Impressions blog hop today! If you would like to start at the beginning of this little hop, you can do that over at Stars & Stamps! If you have come here from Mary Anne's Blog, you are right on track! Isn't it a beautiful day for a hop?

Today I am sharing a card made for OWH using one of our cute new Great Impressions fundraiser sets. I'll be following this OWH sketch #227:


In addition to the adorable Great Impressions - Home and Sentiments set, I used some cute paper by We R Memory Keepers, a Spellbinders die and some die cut / punched stars. I colored with Copic markers and used some Liquid Glass on the cute hearts and windows:


Here's a little close-up detail if you would like:


I really love this adorable little set and it is so nice for them to donate 20% back to OWH. Many thanks to Ms. Deone for letting me participate in this today and to Great Impressions for teaming up with us. These stamps have such wonderful detail and they stick so nicely to your acrylic blocks. The letters in the sentiment are a nice font that stamp out very crisply - and what great sentiments for OWH cards!  I really enjoyed working with them!

I love this little set so much that I used it this week for my card featuring "ribbon" for my local card-making group. So here is an example of the card using the other adorable sentiment:



 Now hop along over to Carolyn's place to see what she has in store for you!

Thanks for stopping by!

I am a little abstract in my thinking and this is a perfect stamp for me...when the image is "true to life" it makes me crazy. I feel like it needs to be perfect when it's finished.

I love that you decked your house out in such patriotic fashion. Your dual-color inking around the edge... with the green grass and blue sky is something that has never occurred to me. Duh! LOL Great work as usual! :)

Very nice card. It's so happy it makes you feel good. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful cards. Must have been fun picking up all those little stars to glue them on. Love your header and the comment about the eyelet. I have a teeny, tiny brad on the lamb and I just know it's going to find a bare foot, probably mine! TFS your cards.
