Abstract Impressions is the stamp set of choice today for a sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  This stamp set reminds me of the customer favorite retired Rose Wonder stamp set.  I am super excited to have a chance to make a couple of samples – but I want more time with it!   Why isn’t there more creative time in a day?

For this triple stamp, I used the following colors;  Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade and Lovely Lipstick.  You can see that I added the Handwritten background stamp in the background.  I used the new Gray Granite color for that – stamped off once.  The cardbase is the new Lovely Lipstick and the cardbase layer is Basic Gray.

For this Abstract Impressions card, I wanted to use some of the new colors.  I used the Soft Seafoam, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.  The greetings are from the stamp set.   I used the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape to accent the greeting. . . . pretty clever, huh?

I used my favorite combination of the 2″ circle punch and the Starburst punch to accent the main greeting.   By stamping the smaller flowers and cutting them out, I was able to pop them up on Stampin’ Dimensionals adding a little more texture to the card.  The Artisan pearlized accent finishes off the flowers with a little punch!

I needed to add the leaf punch in Granny Apple Green to help accent the flowers.   I can see a future for the Granny Apple Green and the Coastal Cabana color scheme.

The finishing touch is the Detailed Trio punch.  I am going to venture to say that you are going to LOVE this punch. . . . it is going to give you 3 different choices for a punched image. . . . 2 of them coordinate to make this image.

Seriously, I can’t wait to have a little more creative time with this stamp set!   It’s going to be a fun one!
