I just can’t get enough of the Abstract Impressions stamp set, I will have another one after my Cookies & Cards class on July 28th because we are making one there too. 🙂 I created this card for a fellow demonstrators birthday and had to make one for myself. 🙂
I saw a card using this stamp set that didn’t focus on the other two flowers I’d seen, apparently there is a third flower in there and a butterfly. I may never put this stamp set down!
I saw my inspiration card on a demonstrator Facebook group and I knew I had to make one too. Katrina Duffell’s card is so much prettier than mine but I just didn’t have the patience to add all of the colors she did. You may not be able to see it in the photo but I used a Stampin’ Sponge and Balmy Blue ink to color the sky.
Today’s card is a little different, I didn’t use exclusively new products nor exclusively Stampin’ Up! products. The patterned paper is from October Afternoon, I got a pack of 25 in a warehouse sale over 5 years ago and I’m still working through it. The “Happy Birthday” on the front is from Cherry Chat that retired in 2007, sometimes you just need to pull out some old stamps set and show them some love. On the inside I used Animal Outing and Beautiful Bouquet. For the card I followed these instructions from Ruza’s Craft Corner.
I wanted to make a butterfly die cut card like I did for my Stamp-a-Stack last month and this is what I made using the new butterfly from the Springtime Impressions thinlets. I accidentally ordered the Petals Promenade Designer Series Paper instead of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper that is part of the suite but it’s just as lovely.
I created a few cards to swap with my upline, Cheryl Lee. Here is one I created with the Rooted in Nature bundle. I was inspired by Jacque Williams but I needed it landscape instead of portrait for my display board. I used the Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede markers to color the tree.
