Using Vellum with the Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set

By Debbie Mageed, Avant Garden, Dragonfly Dreams, Blooms & Bliss, Layering Ovals Framelits, Vellum, Birthday, Stampin Up

I have been making up for lost time in my craft room this weekend. Life sometimes has a way of throwing a curve ball at you just to make sure you’re not taking anything for granted. My craft room has given me the therapy I needed and you will see some of it in the days to come. The card I am showing you today started with Avant Garden, the pretty stamp set offered during this past Sale-A-Bration. I watched this video by Jennifer McGuire and wanted to try it.

It’s All in the Details

  • After playing with this card and its layers for a while, I will tell you the final version. The card base is Sweet By Debbie Mageed, Avant Garden, Dragonfly Dreams, Blooms & Bliss, Layering Ovals Framelits, Vellum, Birthday, Stampin UpSugarplum. Layers of Blooms & Bliss topped with Oval Framelit Whisper White cardstock, then Vellum and finally Scallop Oval Whisper White cardstocks were all aligned and adhered together. The sentiment was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum before the top layer was adhered.
  • The flower from Avant Garden was stamped twice, then masked to stamp the leaves. They were then fussy cut and put aside.
  • Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon was adhered to the side of the layers. Blushing Bride Sequin Trim was cut and stapled in place. Then the flowers were popped up with dimensionals.
  • The card still felt like it needed a little sumthin-sumthin so I added Enamel Shapes and found a little butterfly in my stash to add as well.
  • Inside: The same DSP was added to the inside and a sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum then cropped with an oval framelit die.

 

Here’s the first card I made that was more like Jennifer’s. It has some mistakes in it – using new products always has some learning curves LOL – but I still think it’s OK.

  1. Debbie, this is absolutely gorgeous! It shows your love of layers, colors and bling as well as your attention to detail. I may have to try a “stash box” of bits and pieces that did not make a project. I usually store those bits with the cardstock or dsp, LOL. The second card is pretty. It shows the benefits of playing with new products to get a feel for what we really like!!

  2. What pretty cards! The first one? A Secret Shaker card- that’s what it looks like with the vellum over that paper! (Giggle. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.) I like the layering,too, sort of reversed. Very cool! And if there are mistakes in that amazing second card, I sure don’t see them. The colors and layout are nice.
    Glad that you found some time and some inspiration in your craft room, its very therapeutic, for sure.
    Happy Day to you!

  3. It is good to get some much needed stress relief in the craft room. These creations are fabulous. Both of them. I don’t see any mistakes on the second one. Love the layers and all of the detail on them. Great use of vellum and glad that you tried it. You have a well done blog too. Love all of the clear instructions. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.
