Hello Everybody,

It's so weird to think that this is the last Great Impressions Challenge for 2014.  But not to worry--2015 will be full for fun challenges!

The challenge this month is Use a Great Impressions Stamp-Anything Goes.  It doesn't have to be Christmas-but we are still very much in the Christmas Spirit! :)

Here is the angel that I colored for my card.  This is stamp F461 Christmas Angel.  I used a silver photo pen for the detail work.  Then I went back over with a finer black pen.

Here is my completed card.  I added Crystal Stickles to her wings and red Stickles to the holly in her hair.  Silver outlines the oval.

For the white cardstock part I embossed the paper with a special plate that has an oval cut out.  This is from Tim Holtz.  I made sure that Christmas Angel would fit then I placed the paper in the embossing folder.  I have a Cuddlebug so I used a B plate and then this was the other plate.  It is very cool that the oval was not embossed so I could stamp and color my angel.

Usually I put the sentiment on the outside of the card and leave the inside blank.  But I thought that the angel should take front and center stay all by herself.  So I stamped this sweet sentiment on the inside: B218 Magic in the Air.

The GI Design Team and I are so excited to see what you will create with the Great Impressions Stamps!

There plenty of time to buy Great Impressions stamps for this challenge.  Just go Here!  :) For more inspiration be sure to check out our Facebook Page and Pinterest Boards.

Until next time my friends...Enjoy this magical time of year! :)
