Abstract Impressions

The new Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog is so much fun but at the same time so frustrating!  There are so many great new items in it that I don’t know what to order first or what to post first.  There are so many things in this catalog that I love.  It is such a dilemma!

This year I decided to buy a few new stamp sets that I normally would stay away from.  I am not really fond of these sayings but they fit.  I am going outside of my comfort zone or outside of my box.

One of the stamp sets I decided to try is called Abstract Impressions.  It is a flower set (of course) but it is more vintage than I usually go.  I started playing with it and realized I love it.  This set is a two-step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make an image. This is the case with the flowers on the card.  First I stamped the larger flower in Blushing Bride and then used Calypso Coral for the second stamp.  The smaller flowers are made with Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (a new color!!).  The leaves were stamped in Call Me Clover (a new InColor).

Doesn’t this card remind you of your grandmother’s wallpaper in her guest bedroom?  Maybe that is why I love this set.  Oh, and this stamp set does have matching Thinlits called Springtime Impressions.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle!

Here is a video that Stampin’ Up! made using this Bundle:

  1. Great card, Susan. Yes, it does remind me of wallpaper! Your colors are gorgeous – just enough contrast to look “real” and add depth. And I LOVE how you’re embracing vintage a bit more. Next thing you know, you’ll be sponging and ripping everything. 😉 (Yeah, I can’t see that either.)

  2. I wasn’t taken with this set, but you’ve done a beautiful job at showing it off, Susan! Terrific colour combination, and I love all the layers of cardstock. 🙂
