Great Impressions Stamps | Thankful Autumn

Hi there! Welcome to release week at Great Impressions Stamps. I have a CAS card and a cool fridge magnet to share today using two new Great Impressions stamps. First up is the card:

 (Supplies - Stamp: (Great Impressions Stamps) Fall Garden. Cardstock: (PTI) Rustic White, Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Fine Linen Patterns Pack. Die: (PTI) Edgers Die #1. Other: Copic Markers, typewriter, baker's twine.)

The main image is so beautiful and detailed so I kept the colors and embellishments minimal. The artist of this stamp did an amazing job of capturing fall... I love it! I used my typewriter to create the sentiment strip.

Next up is a super easy fridge magnet using the new stamp Small Autumn. I die cut a frame using my Big Shot, then stamped the "Autumn" image on the bottom before coloring. This picture of my oldest son, Evan, and my sister is 5 years old... taken at a pumpkin patch in my home town. I trimmed the photo then sandwiched it between two frames, adhering it all together. Then I used an adhesive magnet on the back so it will stick to the fridge. Easy and oh so cute!

(Supplies - Stamp: (Great Impressions Stamps) Small Autumn. Die: (PTI) Fabulous Frames. Other: Copic Markers.)

And here it is, on the refrigerator next to two other magnets... the little boy on the right is Evan now (age 6!) and Jack is on the left (age 3). The boys love to clutter up the fridge with various drawings, magnets, and pictures. The poor "x" on the left fell victim to our puppy, Rocket... I can still see the teeth marks!

Make sure to check out the Great Impressions Stamps blog all week for projects, inspiration, and a look at all the new stamps being released this month. Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful fall items. I love how your cards are quick & easy but yet so "finished" for a great appeal.
