Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #514 Abstract Impressions

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Today we are continuing to CASE the catalog.  We are looking at page 5.  This page shows three different cards with each one getting a little more complex.  I chose to CASE (copy and share everything) the third card.


I love the colors of Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.  I'm so glad Stampin' Up! had a Color Revamp.  Aren't you? 

CCMC #514 by Jo Anne Hewins

My card begins with a card base of Coastal Cabana measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp with the background stamp Handwritten in the same color.  I used the Stamperatus to make sure that I had good coverage.  

Next you need a banner of Granny Apple Green.  This measures 2 1/2 x 5 1/4.  Stamp this in the same color using another background stamp called Tree Rings.  To notch the bottom, find the middle of the banner and cut straight up where you want it.  Now cut from each corner to the top of the cut you made in the center.  Place this a little askew on the card.

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Place it straight up and down on the card.  Stamp three flowers using the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  Each flower is a three part stamp.  Stamp off the largest stamp and stamp with Coastal Cabana on Whisper White.  The next layer has a little more detail and is stamped in Coastal Cabana.  The last layer is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  If you look at the clear plastic that holds the stamps, you'll see a little >.  Use that to help you stamp these stamps in the right direction.  Frankly, I don't think it matters a lot.  Fussy cut the three flowers and place them on the white layer using dimensionals.

Now stamp the leaves.  There are two stamps for this.  Stamp off the larger stamp in Granny Apple Green and stamp on white.  Now stamp the smaller leaves with the Granny Apple Green.  I got a little carried away and made 7 leaves.  Fussy cut.

The Thank You is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  Stamp on white and punch this out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  This will go at the bottom of the white rectangle.  First you'll fold over a length of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The Thank You will go on with dimensionals.  Add the leaves with dimensionals where you want them.
