OWH + Great Impressions Stamps Bloghop and Sketch 227!

Hello, cardmakers! It’s Julie and I’m so excited to be back in the sketch hosting saddle for today! Not only do we have two variations on one great sketch to share, but we’re also doing a little bloghop today with the talented team from Great Impressions Stamps!

This wonderful company is rolling out some special OWH fundraiser stamps today – part of the proceeds from these four stamp sets will go to OWH!  They are so cute! I know you’re going to love them!

As I said, we have two takes on one sketch today, and I think you’ll like it!  First, the rectangle version:



Or, the variation… the circle version:



How fun are those? Can you think of things to put in that circle or that rectangle? Or maybe both of them!? Please, let me share with you some ideas from the awesome ladies here at OWH and the Great Impressions design team!  Let’s kick off the hop with a sample from Paula…



And one more sample from yours truly…



Now get to hopping, and don’t forget to leave some comment love for our hardworking folks!

  1. I like these sketches and the cute stamps

  2. I am fairly new to OWH and I really appreciate having a template to start with…AND with the dimensions. It’s easy to go off in different directions when you have already been given a starting point. Thanks…and I love the Birthday Stamp. Ordered it to be used for several of my grand- and great grandchildren. Can’t wait to get it.

  3. Love the blue on blue, it makes a peaceful scene. The frog madr me laugh. I love frogs and never thought to use the white on the green.

  4. I love this sketch!! Both of the sample cards are great…I love the frog!! Now I’m off to hop
