You have visited my blog on the perfect day as I’m taking part in a ‘All things new’ blog hop! My name is Esther Boulter and this is my blog Gather and Create. You may have hopped here from the previous person or this may be the first blog on your list. I just want to give you a warm welcome and hope you enjoy the project I’ve designed for you all using the Abstract Impressions bundle. If you get lost at any point, the list of hoppers is just a bit further down.
Look how beautiful the Abstract Impressions bundle is! I just had to play with it!
And the Designer Series Paper….be still my beating heart!

As I type this, my bags are packed and I’m ready to travel to Telford for Onstage – a demonstrator only Stampin’ Up! event. In just one more sleep I’ll get my hands on the BRAND NEW annual catalogue and play with some new goodies. I can’t wait!
The online digital copy of the catalogue goes live for demonstrators on Tuesday. Join my team and you’ll have access to it! JOINTEAM G & C
One of the fun things about Stampin’ Up! events is swaps – you make a card front or 3D item in as many as you would like to get back. Then you go home with lots of lovely new ideas.
My team also decided to take part in a WOW swap between ourselves. The idea is, that people say ‘WOW’ when they open it! No pressure then 🙂
I decided to make a never ending card featuring the Bubble Over Bundle.
4 pieces of Very Vanilla Card, score at 3.9cm and 11.4cm along the long side
6 7x7cm squares
6 6.5×6.5cm squares
8 3x7cm pieces
8 2.5×6.5cm pieces
2 7x7cm Designer series paper squares
8 3.5×3.5cm squares
I also made a video to show you the basic mechanism of the card.
