Abstract Mountain or Abstract Sunset? – Both are BEAUTIFUL!

Have you ever used abstract elements on your card designs? Today Therese shares 3 unique ways to create some fun card scenes!

Hi it’s Therese and I have been creating a scene… well, 3 to be exact lol.
Step 1 – I started with the Abstract Mountain Die and did a lot of die cutting using some beautiful cardstock colors from Concord & 9th.

Step 2 – Next I blended a sunset background, mixing up some colors to get ‘just the right’ hue.

Step 3 – Then I created a layered frame using the Essential Hexagons.

Step 4 – And created a sentiment using the All About You Stamp and coordinating Die Set. And joined it all together.

Step 5 – and what to do with the ‘left-overs’?

Step 6 – Why create another card of course… and this sentiment is from the And Many More Stamp Set.

Step 7 – Next I die cut some more cardstock, this time using the Abstract Sunset Die, but I also made my own splattered cardstock to take it up a notch.

Step 8 – By this time I had a real mess on my desk… and I could have given you the ‘wide angle’ but it still wouldn’t have big enough.

Step 9 – I added a sentiment from the All About You Stamp Set which is fabulous as it co-ordinates with the Nice of you Die which cuts out multiple sentiments in one cut!

Step 10 – and all together now…

I hope you have enjoyed these fabulous Abstract Scenes that I have created today and are inspired to give them a try!

    These are beautiful cards! I had a hard time finding the abstract dies? Even on the Ellen Hutson and Concord and Ninth websites. Where do you suggest I find these? Thank you!

    Hi – love the cards but I’m trying to find what stamp set you used for the “you”. You reference “All About You” but all that comes up in a search is an MFT stamp that does not match. Can you help me out with the name of the stamp/die set? Thanks!
