Hello and Welcome to my Blog and YouTube channel today!  My card today is all about the end of Summer and the start of Fall: Which is just around the corner.  I wanted to showcase the Abstract Impressions Bundle today. This is one that I adored in the Annual Catalog but haven’t used it a lot.  So I thought it was high time to pull it out and start using plus we get a little break from the Holiday catalog which has gone live.  I have two videos this week that focus on Christmas cards coming out later in the week so be on the watch for them.  Here’s a look at my card for today.

Abstract Impressions bundle along of with the matching products are so easy to create cards and other projects with.

The Abstract Impressions Bundle has a beautiful Stamp Set that gives the fill of watercolors or a painterly effect with just a few stamps.

It’s a multi-step Stamp Set.  Meaning some of the images have two or three stamps that creates the single image.  You layer them all up in different shades a light medium and dark to create the image.  I know your thinking but omg that’s so hard.  Not with this set because it’s (1) photopolymer so you can see through it and (2) with the watercolor look things don’t have to line up exactly perfect to give a fabulous look.

The dies in the bundle feature delicate detail that is so fabulous that it will make your head spin.  The Springtime Impressions Thinlits allow you to
create a beautiful detailed die-cut butterfly, flower, or intricate flower cluster in record time with these Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.  The flower cluster can be placed in a corner of a project and some of the pieces can be cut out for smaller clusters.  I recommend using the precision base plate with your Big Shot for best results.
