Stampin' Up! Avant Garden: One of the free Salabration 2017 choices with a qualifying order

Today we are having a look at Avant Garden, another of the free sets you can earn with Stampin' Up! during Saleabration 2017.  I really like this set, and it's been a popular choice with the mix of sentiments and abstract / realistic floral images. I really like the font on the sentiments, and it is photopolymer for great layering.

My card is a loose interpretation of one on the front colour of the Saleabration brochure as I really liked the colours that were used.

Today's colours are Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron, with Whisper White. I have stamped some of the images off to give a multi shade effect. Flirty Flamingo is fast becoming one of my very favourite colours!

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set two ways

Good morning lovely stamping friends. It's a lovely Autumn morning in Melbourne today, and the birds are singing outside my window. I spent a little tome in the garden over the weekend, trimming the roses to encourage the last of the autumn flowering. Makes me happy!

Today I have some rose themed cards for you, using Birthday Blooms stamp set from the 2016 Occasions catalogue. This first card I made for my Mum's birthday. She's here visiting for the week too which is lovely.

 

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms watercoloured birthday card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia www.clairedaly.typepad.com

 

I embossed the image I gold onto Shimmer cardstock and then coloured using my Aquapainter picking up ink from the inside lid of the ink pads. I wasn't too worried about perfection in colouring and blending, really just wanted to get a little colour onto the blooms. If you want more precise blending, I would recommend using watercolour paper. My colours were blushing Bride and Rose Red for the petals and Mint Macaron for the leaves. My patterned papers are from the Timeless Elegance DSP pack (the striped one) and the It's Your Birthday DSP stack (the Mint Macaron one). Love the cute little bow clips too. They are a real vintage gold colour and suit this style of card.

Even though Birthday Booms has some lovely greetings, I wanted to use this greeting that comes with the Rose Wonder stamp set (also in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue).  Here's a closer look at the colours and stamp set.

This second card uses the same stamp set but a more fresh vintage look. I embossed the image in white, and used a watercolour wash on the petals (just Rose Red ink this time) and leaves (Mint Macaron). Both papers I have used here are from the It's My Birthday DSP stack from the Occasions 2016 catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers Thank You Card

Another quick and simple card today using Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers stamp set and the Greetings Thinlits.

Wild About Flowers thenkyou card. Claire Daly Stampin Up Melbourne Australia

The flowers and stems on this Photopolymer stamp set are separate (so you can add various flower heads), but it's super easy to line them up with the guide on the stamp. This made the stamping off really easy as I just did the leaves first and the flowers. The triple banner punch made cutting the banner ends super easy, and then it was just popping the die cut sentiment on top.

Here's today's colour combination. I'm rather partial to this one. It seems fresh and summery in a cold Melbourne week.

Have a fabulous day and I'll see you back here again tomorrow.
