I just love how this sentiment turned out! I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss, then in Whisper White and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I then stamped with Whisper White again and heat embossed using clear embossing powder and it came out so interesting. It pulled the Blackberry Bliss and the Old Olive into the final colors. I used Old Olive to stamp the stems. The little flowers are Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo.
Last week one of my Stampin’ Up! leaders (Rachel Tessman) had a Zoom meeting. She’s been doing them monthly for a little while now and with the social distancing there are even more attending. She sent us make & take supplies to make a couple of cards and these are what I made.
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.
Using the Soft Sea Foam cardstock, score along the short side at 4 ¼”, rotate and score along the long side at 5 ½”.
Using the Stampin’ Trimmer, cut from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. (You will get two cards out of the base.)
Using the Big Shot Embossing Mats, emboss the lower left corner of the Shaded Spruce cardstock. Cut diagonally from upper left to lower right.
Using Pacific Point ink, stamp sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 2” circle punch. Punch the Pacific Point cardstock using the 2 ¼” circle punch. Adhere Whisper White Circle to Pacific Point circle.
Die cut flower from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.
Die cut butterfly from Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.
Adhere Shaded Spruce triangles to card front.
Adhere circle to the center of the card only putting adhesive on the upper right side.
Adhere butterfly with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and slightly cover the circle with the head to keep the card closed.
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.
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.
