How to step up projects using Avant Garden a Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bratiion stamp set

Happy Sunday folks!

A different video for you today. I wanted to show three cards I made using the same stamp set and basic design and how making some simple changes you can step up your cards.

All of the cards use one of the flowers from the Avant Garden stamp set (#143272). This is a SU Sale-A-Bration (SAB) set that is free with a qualifying £45 order from the annual or Spring/Summer catalogues. On the first card, the flowers are stamped in Island Indigo ink (stamped 3 times without re-inking to get the different colours) on a Whisper White A6 card base, leaves are stamped in Old Olive ink. The front two flowers are fussy cut and attached using dimensionals. The flower pots are all die cut from Tip Top Taupe card stock using one of the dies from the Window Box Thinlit dies (#142762)

The second card uses a Very Vanilla A6 card base that is embossed using the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). The flowers are stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink with the leaves in Mint Macaron on a square of Very Vanilla mounted on Elegant Eggplant cardstock. The front three flowers are fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment is mounted on Elegant Eggplant too. Clear Wink of Stella (#141897) brushed onto the flowers adds a lovely shimmer.

The final card is a Sweet Sugarplum A6 card base embossed using the same embossing folder. The flowers are stamped in Sweet Sugarplum (again more than once without re-inking to get different colours) with Mint Macaron leaves. All the flowers and leaves are fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals to some of the gorgeous SAB Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper that has been cut out with the largest of the Lots of Labels Framelits (#138281). The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set (#130042).
