Abstract Impressions is a stamp set in the 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. It is a fun two step stamp set. This means it takes two or more stamps to make one image. The set is Photopolymer which means it is clear so you can see through it. This makes it easy to line up the stamps to make the image.
To make this card I first stamped the stems in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock. Before I forget, Lemon Lime Twist is an In Color that is retiring at the end of May so if you love it as much as I do, you should stock up with cardstock and ink refills now before it sells out. After stamping the leaves I stamped the flowers in Balmy Blue and Pacific Point and then the sentiment in Pacific Point ink. I cut this out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I also cut out a piece of Balmy Blue and Pacific Point using these dies and then layered them all together. It is a quick and easy card to make.
Last weekend we went to Atlanta to celebrate Emory’s second birthday. Sam & Tara also met us so I had all my grandchildren together. It was awesome. We had a few bumps in the road but it was still so much fun to spend time all together. The Airbnb house we rented was awful and ended up moving to a hotel. We went to the Georgia Aquarium which was so crowded we could not see a thing and our trip home too 28 hours due to weather delays. Even with all of that, it was worth every minute. We also got to meet up with my niece, her husband and their three kids which made the weekend even better.
Here is a picture of my grands, Nolan, Emy and Madelyn. I bought them some “cool” sunglasses which they loved. They even liked having the stickers on them (oops!).
Here are my grands and my niece’s children together. This was the first time we could get all my mother’s great grands in one place.
