Sunday Sketches SS039 - Abstract Impressions

Sunday Sketches SS039 Abstract Impressions stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Each Sunday, I create a card using one of my card sketches. This week's sketch is number SS039.  Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.

You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!

For today's card, I choose the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  It had been on my wishlist for some time, I just LOVE the nostalgic look of this stamp set.  I have always loved three step stamping as it always gives great color and depth to every card. 

I love that all the red rubber stamps now come in Cling, you get that great rubber stamped image and no more trying to keep those stamps on the block.  In fact, you have to be a bit careful when you remove them as they are super stuck!

  4. Stamp the more solid large flower in Petal Pink Ink three times in the lower left-hand corner of the Whisper White Cardstock (3" x 3 1/2").
  5. Stamp the 2nd flower layer in Blushing Bride Ink on top of the Petal Pink stamped images.
  6. Stamp the final flower layer in Terracotta Tile ink on top of the Blushing Bride images.
  7. Stamp the leaves in Mint Macaron Ink randomly around the flowers.
  8. Adhere the Whisper White cardstock to the lower right-hand corner of the cardfront with dimensionals. (about 1/4" from the right-hand side and 3/4" from the bottom).
  9. Stamp the words in early Espresso Ink and cut out with a 1 3/8" circle from the Layering Circles Dies.
  10. Cut out the scallop circle that is just a bit bigger than the circle in Mint Macaron cardstock.
