When I saw the floral images in the new Abstract Impressions stamp set I thought this one looked like poppies. I’ve had so much fun with this stamp set. The combination of two-step images and varied greetings has made it a fantastic buy. Two-step stamping allows two images to be stamped one on top of the other to create a 3D appearance. The best part about this stamp set is that the images weren’t designed to perfectly align. Whether you’re a new or seasoned stamper, you’re going to love the ease and endless combination of floral arrangements you can create.
I used a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Paper measuring 1 1/2″ x 3 7/8″. Stampin’ Up! designer paper is most often double-sided providing you with lots of options. Don’t let the name of Stampin’ Up! designer paper sway you. Flip it over! Even the holiday prints have an alternative side that’s non-specific.
I wanted to add a neutral color to this card to compliment the Grapefruit Grove cardstock and ink. Crumb Cake is one of my very favorite colors because it goes with everything. The coordinating Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon is easy to use and you can’t beat the Stampin’ Up! color coordination!
A white embossed greeting on colored cardstock often brings the perfect accent to a card. Don’t forget to use your Embossing Buddy before you stamp to eliminate those stray specks of powder.
The best part about loose flower art is that you can make different flower styles. Tell me what YOU see. I still see poppies. ((smile))

Please do a tutorial on the great double bow. I love the card!
Hi Raelene! The double bow is using a bow maker. I haven’t mastered how to create one well without the help of that tool. My bow maker was given to me by a friend whose husband made it for me. They are sold online through most retailers and Amazon. Hope that helps.
