Welcome to the first Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop of the year. This is my first time hoping with this group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. We hope to inspire you with our creations!
We have a sketch challenge today and I’ve made this Abstract Beauty card to play along. I love the gold accents in the Abstract Beauty papers. That accent made it easy to add the Shimmer and Shine challenge to this sketch as well.
Here’s the sketch that we started with:
As you can see, it’s a fairly simple sketch and one that lets you show off the patterned papers. I used two patterned papers and Blushing Bride card stock to make my card.
Instructions for Card
- Cut your card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″.
- Adhere the Abstract Beauty piece of paper, cut 5 1/4″ x 4″, to the front of the card base.
- Using the Abstract Beauty piece that had an ombre green pattern, tear a small border and adhere to the bottom of the card front.
- Cut another piece of Blushing Bride card stock 3″ x 3 3/4″ and the Gold polka dotted piece of Abstract Beauty paper to 2 7/8″ x 3 5/8″. Adhere the patterned paper to the Blushing Bride.
- Stamp “Thinking of You” from the On the Horizon’s stamp set on a scrap of Basic White using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Cut each word out individually and adhere to the card front as shown.
- Adhere a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White to the inside.

Artfully composed stamp camp
Please join me and 11 talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world for an amazing Stamp Camp experience. This Artfully Composed Stamp Camp will feature the colorful and fun Artfully Composed suite of products. You can see each of the items here:
Unfortunately, the ribbon is currently unavailable in the USA, but you could substitute either of these two ribbons:Product List
This Stamp Camp includes a card kit to make 12 cards…one designed by each of the demonstrators on the Creativity Abounds team. In this card kit you will get the card bases and any pieces of card stock needed to make the card. If a die other than the ones included in the Artfully Layered Bundle is used, it will be cut for you. Envelopes are included as well.
You will use your Artfully Composed patterned paper, Artfully Layered Bundle, ribbon, Faux Sea Shapes, and inks/adhesives.
This kit will come with an emailed written tutorial for each card as well as “unlisted” videos to show you how to make the cards.
On January 28-29, 2022, you will be part of an exclusive Facebook Group where we will have 12 LIVE presentations showing another project made with the suite. As the group is international, some LIVES will be at less convenient times, but they will all be recorded in the FaceBook group and you will have access to them forever.
The only fee to participate in this Stamp Camp is purchase through me of the Artfully Composed Suite (purchased as a bundle, two paper packs, and embellishments with a substitute ribbon) for approximately $90 (depends on the ribbon chosen.) If you already own these products, please substitute any other $90 (before shipping and tax) of products. REMEMBER: add just $10 of product and you will earn 2 FREE $50 Sale-a-bration items or 1 FREE $100 item.
You can order by clicking on this link: SHOP WITH CHATNCRAFT WITH LORRAINE and this will input the host code for you automatically. I will be notified of your purchase and will enroll you in Stamp Camp. Please be sure to order as soon as possible to ensure that nothing becomes unavailable!
About a week before Stamp Camp you will receive your card kit in the mail. Then a few days before the Artfully Composed Stamp Camp starts, you will receive an invitation to join the exclusive Facebook group.
