Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Cards

Can you believe these two cards are from the same stamp set? I love the versatility. The wreath design was inspired by Julie DiMateo at thepaperpixie.com. She used a template for her design. I’m much less technical and appreciate shortcuts, as you will see below.

THE CUTTING

  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Gold Foil: 5″ x 5″ (you can cut the center out to use for another project)
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 4″

THE CREATING

I placed my 4×4 cardstock on the grid paper of the Stamparatus about an inch away from the hinged edge and marked where the right two corners were. I stamped, then rotated my cardstock a quarter turn in a diamond position and stamped. Then rotated a quarter turn back to square, lining up the corners on the marks. Continue around. On the last image I did need to slightly adjust the cardstock so that the image lined up exactly between the two on either side, but it was just a smidge. I used a block to put the second generation images between the first generation ones done on the Stamparatus.

I ran the Gold Foil through the Big Shot with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (be sure to have your words in the right direction, don’t ask how I know). I added a Gold Shimmer bow and Gold Enamel Dots. I made a second one with Red Rhinestones. (And to make sure my stamping “system” wasn’t just a streak of good luck, lol).
