Stampin’ Up! Abstract Hello Beautiful You Are Amazing!

Happy happy Hawwmp Day!  So…before we get going on a card – I want to let you know about a super-cool new kit that’s being released TODAY!  It’s the Celebrate Today Magnetic Board Kit – an ALL INCLUSIVE, NO STAMPING kit that will let you make a beautiful and functional home-decor piece!  I’m super excited about it – and know that you’ll be happy to get it!  I’ve got all the deets down below – and you probably want to get it QUICK – get one for yourself and a few for your friends and family!  I think it will be really really popular.

So my card today is another that’s not really my strong point – I mean – it’s got layers.  And a collage.  But…it’s a little more…modern feeling than my usual style.  The Abstract Beauty Suite – with it’s fun 4″ x 6″ DSP and the pretty Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack, did the bulk of the work for me – while the Hello Beautiful stamp set and bundled Beautiful Shapes put a bow on it!  Take a look-see:

The color palette was loosely inspired by the TGIF Color Challenge this week.

And the Word Week challenge from Just Us Girls inspired my sentiment choices!

I started with a fun piece of the Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP that I matted on Calypso Coral for the card front.

I used a few of the shapes from the Hello Beautiful stamp set to add splotches and textures in Soft Sea Foam, Calypso Coral and stamped-off-once Calypso Coral.

Next up, I cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam using the large circle die in the Beautiful Shapes die set and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut another shape from the die set from Vellum cardstock.  Then I used one of the stamps from Hello Beautiful to add some Calypso Coral dots.

I adhered the vellum shape to the card front – using Liquid Glue only under the bottom part of the shape (so the glue wouldn’t show!).

I used some Foam Adhesive Strips to pop a gold-foil-embossed frame from the Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack onto the card front.

I used a few more pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips to adhere a sweet heart from the Ephemera Pack in the bottom corner of the frame.

I picked a few gold-embossed die cut leaves from the Ephemera Pack and added them with some Liquid Glue (I knew it would be covered with my sentiment!)

The sentiment, from Hello Beautiful, is stamped in Calypso Coral on Basic White and cut with a die from the Beautiful Shapes die set.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a little die cut heart from…yep – the Ephemera Pack! – to the sentiment with Liquid Glue and popped on a second little heart with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I added some black Adhesive-Backed Hexagons – FIVE, to be exact! – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped another Hello Beautiful shape in Soft Sea Foam and a second sentiment and a little texture in Calypso Coral on a piece of Basic White cardstock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the shapes and textures from Hello Beautiful on the front…

..and more of the Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Well – as often happens when I start out thinking “meh” about a bundle or suite, I ended up having a lot of fun with this Hello Beautiful stamp set and bundled Beautiful Shapes die set!  And the Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP is so bright and colorful – with the pops of gold foil, which you’ll also see lots of in the super cool Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack!

I hope you like!

Just too cute not to share!

This is what happens when you tickle his pits.

He really really likes to have his pits tickled.

It causes a severe case of the zoomies when it’s over! 😂
