Avant Garden

Hello Friday!  Hello Weekend!
 
It's going to be a busy weekend around here...tonight I am teaching a class using the Beautiful You stamp set along with Watercolor Pencils and our Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack.
 
If you have any plans, let me know if you would like to attend!
 
So I was playing around with stamp sets not inked up yet and Avant Garden, one of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that you can get for free with a $50 purchase. 
 
I was going through my scraps of cardstock and upcoming retiring In Colors (Tip Top Taupe in this case) and Elegant Eggplant Cardstock with a touch of Basic Black and Whisper White and came up with this card. 
 
 
I love the simplicity of this card....I added a bit of Whisper White Baker's Twine as well. 

 
Sometimes it's best to go back to the basics and create something simple....not adding a whole bunch of embelishments...just a basic card. 
 
For the flower, I used Old Olive and the Elegant Eggplant ink pads.  I inked up the stem and then inked up the flower...you can also use our markers and color in the stamps but I do think you get a much better coverage using straight from the ink pads.....give it a try...see what you think...


 
 
 
Hope you have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!
