Abstract Impressions Diagonal Fold

As promised, here is another card using the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Springtime Impressions die set.  For a video on how to make this fun diagonal fold check out Dawn Griffith’s.  I based mine off of one that Susan Campfield had us make at one of her team gatherings but I can’t find a post on it from her.

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.  🙂  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!

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.

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.
