From the Archives…
Original Post Date: February 2017
Today I am sharing an project from my archives again. This one features a Sale-a-bration Set from 2017 – Avant Garden.
One of the wonderful features of this stamp set is that it has three image types…
- Main images (flowers)
- Background images (dots)
Which allows us to do many things with just one stamp set. The other wonderful feature about this set, is that is was CLEAR PHOTO-POLYMER, which allowed for two-step stamping of images, and no guess work!
Are you following along with the Weekly Mystery CASE Card Challenge? If you are this layout should look familiar. I grabbed my CASE Clues from for this weeks mystery from this past project. A card layout can be used over and over again, to create very different projects. You can see this weeks CASE Card here.

Tips & Techniques:
- For the flowers, stamp once on the cut out piece of whisper white, then stamp again without re-inking on the card front whisper white.
- For the baker’s twine, double up the strand, bring to the front of the card image and use a glue dot to help you tie the knot for the twine.
- For the background stamping, use the Versa-mark ink for a color on color effect or a water marked effect.
- If you want the background to really pop, use Basic Black or a darker coordinating color of your choice.
