Have Sale-a-bration stamps…must USE Sale-a-bration stamps! The Avant Garden, part of the Sale-a-Bration 2017 promotion, is such a pretty stamp set! I made 4 different cards with it last night and I will be posting each one so you will have the products I used if you want to create your own. Maybe you want to join one of my classes? I do offer some of my classes “to go.” I am working on adding OnLine Classes to my schedule, so stay tuned! When I do, like the rest of my schedule, it will be posted under “My Events” in the menu bar.
Like most of my creations, the first thing I grabbed after deciding on the stamp, was my Sweet Sugar Plum Ruched Ribbon (InColor from the 2016 collection.) Next, I paired it with Chocolate Chip. I could of easily picked Early Espresso but I felt that color was too dark. I am happy with my choice! To create the flower, I stamped the flower on Whisper White card stock and added the stem and leaves in Old Olive. Cut the flower and place it the Chocolate Chip Paper. I then added an extra flower and leaf to give some dimension. The oval framelits were a nice touch for the saying in the stamp set. The background stamp is also from the set! Isn’t it great! It is hard to see but I did add Wink of Stella to the flower that is popped up with dimensionals.
The Avant Garden stamp set, you can have for FREE with a $50 order! That’s right with the Sale-a-bration promotion, for every $50 you spend, you can pick from several items, one for FREE.
Staying with the Chocolate Chip as a layering piece, all the cards are unique and show all the stamps! I don’t have a favorite, I love just having a variety! Endless possibilities, one of the BEST things about Stampin’ Up!
