Great Impressions Guest Design Spot #1

Today is my birthday!!!
I was invited to be the November Guest Designer for 
How cool is that?
(The GD spot, not the birthday.  I have one of those every year.)

GIS generously sent me some wonderful stamps to use on a few cards to share with you and inspire you.  
Here's the first card I made, sort of a modified gate fold:
This adorable Pumpkin Puppy, a Great Impressions stamp (H259S), was stamped once on white cs and once on orange patterned paper, so I could fussy cut the pumpkin and paper piece it.   The leaves were stamped a second time on white scrap, fussy cut, colored and glittered  before being popping onto the framed picture.  The card design is a modified gate fold.  The framed image tucks under the wood embellishment to keep it closed. 
There are 2 more frames underneath, one has a quote- Great Impressions Stamp #E550S,
and the second is for the sentiment.

There is a new Anything Goes November Challenge starting at the Great Impressions Blog 

and some really great stamps in their online store.  I may have to buy myself a birthday gift or two.  I love that Peeking Chicken stamp in the What's New section. 

 Stop back later this month when I'll have another card featuring Great Impressions Stamps.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! Happy Birthday Debi!!!
    Hope you have an amazing day! Speaking of amazing, I really love your card. You did an awesome job fussy cutting the image and creating your 3D effect. Plus I love the fold and how you added the sentiment.
