For the 4th card this week featuring the Avant Garden Stamp Set, I picked the other flower in the stamp set. It is a more “realistic” image then the whimsical flower. In case you didn’t notice, all 4 cards, I use Chocolate Chip card stock as my layering piece. I did this on purpose. You may not have every color card stock BUT using one layering piece and changing up the other colors makes each card unique! I love showing all the different looks! I looked through my Carried Away Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-a-bration (SAB) item) and as soon as I saw this pattern, I knew Watermelon Wonder was the color choice. I used the striped ribbon to add yet another texture to the card. The new Layering Oval Framelits are a FAVORITE staple in my supplies! They work so well with many of our stamps. I used my Stampin’ Up! Markers to color the flowers in Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder. The leaves and stem are in Old Olive. Markers are an easy way to color in the detailed image. Wink of Stella was added to the flowers, but it is so hard to capture in a photo!

When Sale-a-bration first started, this was my first card using the Avant Garden Stamp Set. I also used 2 other items from the Sale-a-bration 2017 Brochure, the So Very Much Stamp Set and the Metallic Ribbon. (of course Ribbon!) I think the soft colors are what helps make this card just flow. It was a hit with my customers.

Recapping the 4 Avant Garden cards I created this week. All feature Chocolate Chip as the layering piece (5 1/4′ x 4″.) I don’t have a favorite, I love just having a variety! Endless possibilities, one of the BEST things about Stampin’ Up!
