Luv 2 Stamp February Blog Hop Abstract Beauty Suite


Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2021 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you this year and hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products.

I have selected the Abstract Beauty Suite to create my project for the special women in my life. The 4" x 6" paper is gorgeous, with one side with foil and the opposite side a less flashy design.  But the cards needed a special decorated box. I took inspiration from Lori Pinto but experimented with the measurements to allow the 4"x 6" Abstract Beauty Cards to fit. Here are the directions:

Cut Pieces
8-3/4" x 12" Night of Navy
2-5/8 x 12" Night of Navy (2)
Artistic Die in Gold Metallic Specialty Paper


On the short end, score at 1-1/4" and 7-3/4"

On the long edge, score at 1", 2-1/4". 6-1/2", and 7-3/4"

Using your bone folder, burnish all the score lines. Cut up to the 1-1/4" line and as noted in the pictures. Create your box and add the Abstract Beauty DSP to the front panel.

Close the box with a belly band and decorate with the Gold Metallic die and Adhesive Backed Hexagons. Here is one of the cards that will go in the box.

Would you agree that this is gorgeous paper? I hope you will honor the women in your life with products from the Abstract Beauty Suite.
