Garden Impressions So Much To Love Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
I finished up the first round of Paper Shares to some very happy stampers earlier this week and I'm working on the next round!  Are you signed up? My 2018 Paper Share is the BEST, and most budget-friendly way to get your hands on every NEW Designer Series Paper from the new catalog!  You'll have a ton of choices for your creative projects and you'll discover which are your favorites that you'll want to purchase in full packs!  Learn more about my Paper Share in my video below!

Today, I'm sharing a couple of swap cards I recently received featuring the lovely Garden Impressions DSP!  The colors and the patterns in this pack are delightful and perfect for summer cards!  It reminds me of beautiful abstract impressionist paintings from Monet or Renoir! 

I'll be sharing a couple additional Garden Impressions cards today on my Too Cool Stamping VIP Facebook Group.  Have you joined yet?  I like to share extra ideas in our VIP group, along with other bonus content.  Join today!

Garden Impressions So Much To Love Card

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is so lovely as a background…all you really need to do is add a sentiment and you're done. 

Background Basics—The 5-1/2" x 2-/4" piece of Garden Impressions DSP is adhered to a 5-1/2" x 3" piece of Mango Melody cardstock, then mounted to a Night of Navy card base. Next, a 5" strip of Burlap Ribbon was attached to the card front with Tear & Tape and the ends were trimmed on an angle.

Sweet Sentiment—The two-step Abstract Impressions rose was stamped first.  The larger image was inked in Mango Melody, stamped off once, then stamped onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes circle.  Then, the detailed rose image was stamped over the top in full-strength Mango Melody.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy over the top for a cool layered stamping look.  The circle was mounted onto a Mango Melody Layering Circle Framelits scallop circle and popped up with Dimensionals over the ribbon.  A few Basic Pearl Jewels were added around the focal point, too.

Garden Impressions So Much To Love Front Flap Card

This card has similar colors and layered stamping to the first card and features a cool front off-set flap for an interesting opening.

Abstract Impressions 2 - Slogar

Background Basics—The base of this card is a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" quarter sheet of So Saffron cardstock.  The actual Night of Navy card measures 5-1/4" x 6-3/4" and is scored on the 4" mark. The longer side is adhered to the card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The shorter flap is decorated with a 5" x 2-1/2" piece of Garden Impressions DSP.

Inside The Card—The Abstract Impressions rose is stamped at the bottom right of a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White. The larger rose is stamped in So Saffron with the detailed rose stamped in Mango Melody over the top. The larger leaves are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and the smaller leafy details are stamped in Shaded Spruce.  I love how this peeks out from under the card front when the card is closed!

Abstract Impressions 3 - Slogar

Sweet Sentiment—The Abstract Impressions roses were stamped in So Saffron ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment was stamped over the top in Night of Navy ink, then the images were die-cut with the Stitched Shapes oval die.  It's layered onto a Night of Navy scallop oval shape, cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits, then popped up with Dimensionals.  Some Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine was tied around the card front into a bow to finish it up!
