Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden and One Big Meaning

I used Avant Garden and One Big Meaning from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  Avant Garden is a free stamp set you can earn during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 or more order from my online store.  Sale-A-Bration is going on right now through March 31st.

I used the sketch at Paper Craft Crew #232 for my card layout.  


The colors were inspired by Fab Friday #106

Fab Friday #106


When the designers over at Fab Friday said a color challenge, that is exactly what it was for me!  I could think of things with some of the colors but not all of them at first!  They definitely pulled me out of my comfort zone.  I knew I wanted to use Avant Garden and that I needed a thank you card, so I combined Avant Garden and One Big Meaning, which is full of thank you sentiments!

I started by stamping the flower images, the dotted images and the leaves onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The art panel was then framed with a panel of Peekaboo Peach.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from One Big Meaning in Rich Razzleberry onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval die to cut it out and then framed it with panels of Peekaboo Peach and Rich Razzleberry ovals from the Ovals Framelits Dies.

I adhered a panel from Blooms & Bliss DSP onto the Rich Razzleberry card stock base with liquid glue.  Then, I adhered a panel of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and popped it onto the base with Dimensionals.  I pulled out a Classy Designer Button, threaded it with some Linen Thread, and tied a bow around a small length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon. The button was attached to the art panel with several Glue Dots, then the art panel was popped on the front with Dimensionals.  To complete the front of the card, I popped the sentiment oval on with more Dimensionals.

I used a Very Vanilla panel for the inside and stamped the sentiment from One Big Meaning in Rich Razzleberry ink.  The flowers are more from Avant Garden and are stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay to carry over the theme from the front.  

Card stock cuts in inches and a list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create my Avant Garden One Big Meaning Thank You card will be at the end of my post.
