Avant Garden #5

Hi!

 

Here is the last card in my Avant Garden series. Let me tell you about it and then below I’ll share my verdict on whether I am keeping the set or not.

 

 

When I finished this card last night, I wasn’t overly crazy about it. After looking at it now, I do like it. Random stamping is something I really enjoy. I think the plain background could have been jazzed up and I’ll remember that for next time.

 

Verdict: After 5 cards with this set and some technical difficulties with the flower, I have decided to add this set to my tag sale box. I think if it was a larger set I might have held on it, but I did use each stamp multiple times so I am fine with parting with it.

 

Time to move on to another set!

 

Have a great night!

Avant Garden #4

Hello!

 

Tonight I am sharing card #4 in my Avant Garden series. I loved random stamping the background panel on this one.

 

 

Lots of layers and dimension on this card! I used 4 stamps from the set. The sentiment was stamped on the Decorative Label punch so it would stand out a bit from the busy background.

 

Have a great night!

Avant Garden #3

Whoops, I forgot to come back and post the next card in my Avant Garden series yesterday!

 

Here it is!

 

 

This one I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and then watercolored it with SU inks using a blender pen. Added some DSP, ribbon and rhinestones to finish it off!

Avant Garden #2

Hi!

 

So at the beginning of the month, I had a goal of using recently retired and retiring Stampin Up items to make a dent in my stash. I made one card and posted it May 1st. Tonight I finally got back to the pile of cardstock and patterned paper that I cut up. I stamped enough focal points for 4 cards!

 

Here is the first card that I finished~

 

 

I stamped the flowers with Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inks. My color palette comes from the Blooms & Bliss DSP that I used on the card. This one will be a little bulky to mail but I really wanted to use the ribbons I bought to go with the paper.

 

I’ll share the next card tomorrow!
