Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Card

This card is CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) from a UTube video by Dena Rekow at the Creativity Cave. She did this quick and fun card in Basic Black, Real Red and Granny Apple Green. I wanted to try it in softer colors for Spring. I think it works both ways. Enjoy!

The Cutting

  • Petal Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and a 2 1/2″ square
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2 – 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels and a 3″ square
  • Basic Gray Cardstock: 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip

The Creating

  • Stamp the “skinny grass” in first generation (straight from pad to paper) with Pear Pizzazz on the Whisper White Square, the envelope, and across the bottom edge of the inside Whisper White panel. Place the square on the center of the front panel to determine where to stamp it across the front panel so that it lines up.
  • Repeat with the “thicker grass” with second generation (stamp pad to scrap to card). There is no lining up necessary.
  • Stamp the “round flower cluster” in petal pink above the “grass” on the square and on the envelope. Fill in the centers with a Smoky Slate Dark Stampin’ Blend with the bullet tip.
  • Use Basic Gray Ink to stamp the sentiments on the square and inside panels.
  • Adhere the layers to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • Embellish the card front with three Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello Thank You

My husband and I are blessed to have wonderful people in our lives. Our neighbors are no exception. We did the simple act of picking up mail for the ones across the street while they were away and they surprised me with a beautiful scarf and a coin purse that I’ll treasure. A Fall thank you card is in order! Enjoy…

THE CUTTING

  • Pretty Peacock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and a small scrap to punch the stem and leaf
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside; 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ for the front layer; and 2″ x 2 1/2″ for the punch.
  • Come To Gather DSP: 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ for the front layer (be careful when using directional pattern) and a 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Linen Thread: 15″
You could add an inside sentiment if you’d like. I wanted the writing space.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp the pumpkin stamp in Pretty Peacock ink on the small white square. Use the Apple Builder Punch to cut it out. Also punch a stem from a Pretty Peacock cardstock scrap. I used the Every Season Leaf Punch to punch a “pumpkin” leaf. (just didn’t feel like coloring and fussy cutting, but you could). I added a Mini Glue Dot on the front of the step and adhered it to the back of the punched pumpkin.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the pumpkin with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the Thank You from Abstract Impressions in Pretty Peacock Ink.
  • The Linen Thread was tied in a bow and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Floral Card

I received a new stamp set and I just had to play with it. (My apologies it’s not Christmas, although there is an item from the Holiday Catalog in the making). My Stampin’ Up! up-line, Amy Koenders, does a drawing from the card posts on our team Facebook page. The prize is a stamp set of our choice. I was one of the lucky ones. Guess who’s getting this card. 🙂

THE CUTTING

  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the front layer.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ for the inside and the front layer; 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for the stamping; and 1″ x 3″ for the message.
  • Garden Green DSP: 3 1/2″ x 2″ and a 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Garden Green 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon: 14″

Tip: I cut the extra paper from the center of the larger front layers to use on other projects. You can use a paper trimmer, die thinlet, or a punch. I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies in this instance. It also helps reduce the weight of the card for mailing.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp Thank You in Garden Green on the 1″ x 3″ strip. Run it through the Big Shot with the 2nd smallest thinlet in the skinnier set of rectangles in the Rectangle Stitched Dies.
  • Stamp the larger leaves stamp in garden green across the bottom of the 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ in second generation (stamp off on scrap paper then onto the card without reinking). Stamp the smaller leaves stamp in first generation with Garden Green.
  • Stamp the flower stamp in Crushed Curry in second generation. Add the complimentary stamp in first generation.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside layer.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the message with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Glue Dot behind the knot of the ribbon to prevent it from sliding during mailing.
