An Avant Garden Welcome

I’ll be honest with you. I was not impressed with Avant Garden when I first opened my 2017 Sale-a-bration brochure.  I mean, flowers again already?  I should have known better.  There have been very, very few stamp sets that I have not grown to love.  (It does happen.  I try not to talk about it.)

The first step towards learning to love Avant Garden was to apply some of my favorite colors.  Second step was to remember that hey, it was free – that starts the love flowing!

  • Stamps:  Avant Garden (2017 Sale-a-bration), retired demonstrator exclusive sentiment
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Island Indigo, So Saffron
  • Accessories:  Stitched Shapes Thinlits, Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon, Very Vanilla Lace Trim, Metallics Sequin Assortment, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots

I almost didn’t include the lace trim.  It’s Very Vanilla.  The card is Whisper White.  I decided to get over it and I’m glad I did.  This may be a first for me!

There are many ways to adhere sequins to a card, but I use Glue dots 99.99% of the time.  They’re clear, they’re the same shape, and it’s the fastest way I know to get the job done.  Bam!!

I’m thrilled to be welcoming more demonstrators to the Maui Stampers.  There’s still time to join and reap the awesome Sale-a-bration benefits: you’ll earn two additional FREE stamp sets of ANY price when you sign up during SAB.  There’s no risk and no requirement to continue.  It’s a great way to test drive being a demonstrator, and there will be some fabulous sneak peeks in the next few months (2017-2018 Annual Catalog, anyone?).  Demonstrators always get the news first!  Learn more HERE.
