Creating a Bright Fun Card with Stampin' Up's Abstract Impressions Stamp Set

(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

Hi everyone!  In today's video, I just had to play again with Stampin' Up's brand new Abstract Impressions stamp set, which was just released in the new Annual Catalog.  I love using this stamp set to quickly create fun, artistic cards.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Here are some pictures of my card:



To create this card, I first started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/4" by 3 1/4 inches.  I stamped the grass with my lightest color first (Granny Apple Green) and then my darker color (Garden Green).  Next, I stamped the flowers (the more solid image first) in my lightest color (Bermuda Bay) and then stamped the second step in my darkest blue color (Pacific Point).  Next, I stamped the butterfly with first, Blushing Bride, then Melon Mambo.  I stamped the body of the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then stamped the sentiment with Melon Mambo ink and then adhered the stamped panel to a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock measuring 4 1/2 by 3 1/2".  Next, I stamped the solid flower image with Bermuda Bay ink onto Bermuda Bay cardstock, which  measures 4 x 5 1/4".  I then adhered the Bermuda Bay to an A2 sized card of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered the stamped panel with Dimensionals.  I added a bow out of thick Whisper White Baker's Twine and then added a few rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.  What do you think?

Don't forget, I'm having an online card class using the Abstract Impressions stamp set and coordinating thinlet set. For all the information on the class, see the video here:

Watercoloring with Stampin' Up's brand new Wonderful Moments Stamp Set and Watercolor Pencils

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to share today's card with you.  I fell in love with Stampin' Up's new Wonderful Moments stamp set the minute I saw it in the new catalog.  I love to watercolor and this stamp set is perfect for that.  Here's a video sharing how I made today's project:

(to view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here's a few pictures of the card:





I think this turned out beautifully and trust me when I say, this card was so easy to put together.  You could truly create a ton of these at once if you wanted to.

To create this card, I first stamped the girl image with StazOn Jet Black ink onto Stampin' Up watercolor paper (you could also use SU Shimmery White cardstock and at the end of the video, I show you the results I got with that paper as well).  Next, I used the two step stamping technique to place the balloons and gift bag in her hands (these stamps are photopolymer so it made it super easy to line everything up).  I then cut the stamped panel into a rectangle (mine measures 2/12" by 4 1/8").  Next, I clored the image using my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils (I used Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Early Espresso, and Calypso Coral) and an Aqua Painter.  I then stamped the fun what looks like confetti image around the main panel using Melon Mambo ink.  I then adhered the watercolor panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 2 5/8" by 4 1/4".  I then set that aside and then created an A2 sized card base out of Thick Whisper White cardstock (which measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 when folded).  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions designer series paper cut at 3 3/4" by 5" and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4" by 5 1/4".  I then wrapped some white baker's twin around that panel, and then adhered it to my card base.  I then adhered the stamped panel backed with black cardstock to the card base using Stampin dimensionals.  I then stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Melon Mambo cardstock and then punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I then adhered that to the water colored panel using mini dimensionals.  For a finishing touch, I added some rhinestone basic jewels and some Clear Wink of Stella glitter to the balloons and gift bag.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I will link below to all the products I used to create this card.  Feel free to check out my Stampin' Up store if you need any supplies.  See you back here soon!

Hugs, Christine

Stampin' Up!'s new Abstract Impressions Stamp Set

Hi everyone!!!  Today, I have a fun card and video to share showing you the brand new Abstract Impressions stamp set in action.  This stamp set is brand new and is absolutely amazing.  I think if I had to pick a favorite set from the catalog, this would be it :)  I love two step stamping, it's one of my favorite techniques, and this stamp set makes it so easy to do.  I will be having an online class using this stamp set.  Please check back tomorrow for a video and blog post explaining all about the online class.  I wanted to do this video first so you could really see the stamp set in action so you could see if this is a class you would be interested in.  Here's today's video tutorial:
And here are some pictures of the card:



To create this card, I first cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/4" by 3 1/4".  This is the panel we will stamp our images on.  I first stamped the sentiment using Memento black ink.  I then stamped the large flowers using first, Flirty Flamingo ink stamped off (meaning I stamped it once onto scratch paper, then stamped it down onto my cardstock), and then I stamped the second image with Flirty Flamingo ink full strength (not stamped off) and then I stamped the third image with Melon Mambo ink.  Next I stamped the leaf.  I stamped the first leaf image with Granny Apple Green ink and then the second part of the image with Garden Green ink.  Finally, I stamped the blue flowers.  The first layer was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink and the second layer was stamped with Pacific Point.  I then adhered the stamped panel to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock cut at 4 1/2" by 3 1/2".  Next, I created an A2 sized card base (which measures 5 1/2" by 4 1/2") out of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then adhered a piece of designer series paper from the Garden Impressions 6x6 designer paper pad to the cardbase.  Next, I adhered some white baker's twine to the stamped panel, then adhered it to my card base with dimensionals.  Finally, I adhered some Rhinestones for some added bling.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  All products used for today's card are linked below.  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Christine
