GDT for Great Impressions and Blog Candy

I am excited to be Guest Designing with Great Impressions in March, thank you for having me!   

This is my first of three GDT post with Great Impressions.  Stay tuned for more Spring and Easter related projects featuring Great Impression stamps. 

Happy Spring!  This bright and cheerful image, Springtime Louie (H263S) is so sweet he couldn’t be hidden.  So I started by die cutting a circle through the front of the card and the front pink paper panel.   Louie is stamped in Memento ink and colored with Chameleon pens.  The white was a little stark so I masked him and sponged in some Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.  A yellow scalloped die cut is the bottom frame topped with Spellbinders Wreathe.  A few die cut leaves and flowers from the same set finish the frame.  The flowers were colored with the coordinating Chameleon pens so they would match the image.  A strip of patterned striped paper is topped with yellow, with the Happy Everything (B246S) stamped in Versa Color Cyan.  All the edges of the panels are inked with Cyan before the card is adhered together. 

When you open the card, Louie is smiling away and ready for your handwritten sentiment!
