Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peak
Today I thought I would share a card I made using the Avant Garden stamp set which will be Free with a qualifying order during the Sale-A-Bration period from 4th January to 31st March. The stamp set contains three greetings and seven images of flowers and leaves and also a background stamp. I stamped the flower stem image onto Shimmer Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen to add Real Red to the flowers and Old Olive to the leaves and stem. Can you tell I am loving these Watercolour Pencils? I always think that I am not the “colour in” type, but I have been searching through my stamp sets and looking for sets that contain images I can colour in just to use these Watercolour Pencils.
Anyway, once the image was coloured I attached the image panel to Old Olive card and then Whisper White. The Whisper White panel is attached to scored and folded Real Red card. I attached a strip of Whisper White Mini Pompom Trim to the back of a piece of the Sending Love Designer Series Paper (from the Occasions Catalogue) and attached it to the card front, covering the lower part of the flower stem. I ran some Fast Fuse onto the Designer Series Paper and attached a length of Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon. I stamped the greeting from the Avant Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. I attached the greeting to an Old Olive scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and then to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.
Can you tell this is the same layout as the card I made for the Stampin Gals Gone Wild challenge recently. I love the sketch and thought it work well for this card too.
Now that Christmas is almost here and most of my shopping, wrapping and cooking is done, I might get a chance to create some more with the new products that I purchased on the demonstrator pre-order.
Bye for now,
