Distracted by Abstract Impressions

Back in June I promised to show you some samples of cards made with the Abstract Impressions stamp set. Or as I like to call it, Distracted Impressions. Just because I am. Distracted. All the time.

Abstract Impressions in Red and Yellow

I have a tutorial for this one, and the link to it is below the card.

Abstract Impressions thank you card in red and yello

  • I used two of the new ink colors here for the red flowers, Poppy Parade and Lovely Lipstick
  • to which I added Real Red for the three-step stamping.
  • Dude, if you don’t have a Stamparatus you really need to get one!
  • I used Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I love how bright these new colors are; there’s no dark overcast to them.
  • That’s one of the new embossing colors in Lovely Lipstick that I used for the “thank you.”
  • I stamped the floral images on a separate white panel on purpose – that way I could trim the piece to give it that “off the edge” look that is pleasing to the eye. Plus I could make a mistake and not ruin the whole card. Been there, done that. Lots.
  • Click here for the tutorial. (It’s a PDF file)

Until next time, stay crafty my friends!

  1. Finally! A comment button. Have missed your posts and am SO GLAD to see you at it again. Thanks for the reminder about panel stamping~I’ve made panels out of mistakes so many times…! Better to start with that in mind from the get-go!
