Abstract Impressions flower trio

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.¬† ūüôā¬† I created this card for a fellow demonstrators birthday and had to make one for myself.¬† ūüôā

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!

Embossing with the Abstract Impressions Bundle

For this Abstract Impressions card, I used the new Big Shot Embossing Mats.  I love how they double the usefulness of your dies!

To do the embossing, I didn’t exactly follow the directions because I wanted to see that the die didn’t move.

My sandwich:

  • Multipurpose platform on tab 1 ( I don’t have the new platform and I’ve taken off tab 2).
  • Impressions Pad
  • Thin silicone rubber mat (blue)
  • Cardstock
  • Die
  • Standard cutting pad

Abstract Impressions Field of Flowers

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.

Box Card for my Son’s Birthday

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.

Abstract Impressions Butterfly Card

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.

Rooted in Nature Sympathy Card

This is another card I swapped with my upline, Cheryl Lee.  I was inspired by a card by Jackie Aitken.  I used the new embossing mat to create the deeply embossed leaves.

Rooted in Nature, card #1

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.
