I’m still getting to play around with some of the new colors that Stampin’ Up! has introduced. Today’s card uses Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody. (Aren’t they great names?) I also got to use the Abstract Impressions stamp set. You are going to love it!

I just love this color combination. Well, there aren’t too many things I don’t like with Night of Navy!

Design Notes for Abstract Impressions Card:

I actually made this card a few weeks ago for a swap. Since i was making more than one, I wanted something fairly easy. it was for fellow demonstrators so it had to be extra nice!  I think I was able to do both things with this card.

The color inspiration was easy, I just looked at the package of the Designer paper. The colors in the papers are always listed on the package and in the catalog. That makes it so easy to coordinate the colors for a card or project.

Both the flower and the leaves were two step stamps. For the leaves, I just used one color, stamping off the Granny Apple Green for the base layer of the leaf.Then I went pack with the second layer and stamped directly on top of the other leaf image.

The stamp set, Abstract Impressions is one I know I am gong to use a lot!  Look how many great stamps there are. You can’t miss with a stamp set that includes creative images and useful, versatile sentiments.
