Sale-a-Bration: Avant Garden FREE stamp set!

Today I'm sharing a card made with the first set featured in the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Brochure...Avant Garden.   This beautiful floral stamp set includes 10 images to create flowers and stamp special greetings (gotta love stamp sets that come with images and greetings!)

I think you could use just about any color combination you'd want, but I chose to play with Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz & Sweet Sugarplum.  I also chose one of my favorite go-to designs/sketch, that I thought would work well for the stamps and color.

I needed a lot of these for swap cards.  So, I thought it was best to "collage" stamp an entire sheet of Whisper White cardstock (got nine 3" x 2-1/4" pieces out of one sheet).  Shown above is how I stamped the first image.

Collage Stamping with Avant Garden stamp set:

  1. Stamp each flower twice with Sweet Sugarplum without reinking in between (called "stamping off").  Then repeat all over the sheet.  
  2. Stamp flower centers with Sweet Sugarplum
  3. Stamp leaves with Pear Pizzazz, stamping off.
  4. Stamp speckled image with Soft Sky (stamp off if you like)
  5. Tip:  When "collage stamping", start with the largest image and work your way down, filling in with the smallest images.
  6. Cut entire sheet into nine 3" x 2-1/4" pieces - woohoo!
