Great Impressions DT - Abundant Blessings

Sigh. You know that Fall is on its way when Labor Day weekend rolls around, right? Hard to believe that another season is passing and we are just months away from 'The Holiday' season!

Thinking about the upcoming holidays has got me moving into 'giving mode' and wouldn't you know it? Great Impressions Stamps is going to help us out!

YOU are invited
to join us in a weekend blog hop to benefit the Ronald McDonald House,
September 28th through September 30th.
Click the badge at the top of my blog (right hand corner) for more info on the Ronald McDonald House, the hop details and how to sign up.
There are a limited number of participants allowed,
so be sure to sign up early!

I've got Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas on the brain, but have been wanting to ink up these Great Impressions Stamps images for awhile now...

and work with these challenges:

...and play around with some CAS's what I put together:

This is about as comfortable as I get with CAS! lol
No Copics, Distress Markers, pencils...just quick swashes of color!

This sentiment stamp Abundant Blessings (C384)
is a lovely Thanksgiving saying, but I thought the first two lines matched the dandelion stamps perfectly!

Washi (Smash Tape) DIY banners are about as easy as they get. Snip, flip & trim!

I like the simplicity of the Seeded Dandelions image and that the matching Blowing Seeds has 3 tiny seeds to choose from. I've got plans to use these images with embossing powder and a little color...loving the 'wish' thoughts that come to mind with these.

If you like these images, too, you can find them locally or online at the Great Impressions Stamps store.

For more Great Impressions Stamps inspiration, be sure to visit the blog and see what the other Design Team members have created!

Inky hugs,
