GI + CI Blog Hop

Good morning!

We have a fun surprise for you today!!

We've teamed up with Great Impressions for a blog hop!

Hop along checking out the great designs from both our DT members and GI's DT members!  A great variety of GI stamps will be shared with you along with our fun shimmery paints!

Each blog will have a letter for you to collect that will spell out a special word.  At the end of the hop you will need to leave the word for your chance at winning the special prize. 

The prize will be 5 jars of paint (winner's choice) and a $25.00 gift certificate to Great Impressions!!


Great Impressions is celebrating the opening of their on-line store!!

They have a wide variety of great stamps to choose from!  And now you are able to purchase them right from them. 


This is one of my most favorite cards I have created using GI stamps!!
Flower Cluster is the main flower image I used!  I just love flowers!!

I used CI Paints Amethyst, Plum abd Lavender to color in the flower cluster with beautiful shimmer!!  Isn't the shimmer amazing?!!

For the top and bottom border, I used Dragonfly Wishes.
I used Sky Blue, Sage, Mellow Yellow and Amethyst to give the stamped image some shimmer.  I used a water brush to paint these colors, to give them more of a subtle color. 

Your next stop along this hop is our very own Barbara

But before you leave, make sure to write this letter down:


You will have until 8:00 PM EST Sunday to join in our hop for a chance at winning!

Along the way, make sure to leave the designers some love!

Here's a list of the entire blog hop, just in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks for joining in!

Have a great day!!
