Is the Varied Vases Bundle on your wish list?? It was one of the first stamp sets that I acquired from the new catalog. Varied Vases Bundle in your kit as its so versatile and comes with a coordinating punch so that you can give your loved ones flowers that will never wither in a vase.
I made this fun and colorful card using the new Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Poppy Parade colors with two favorites Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. The photopolymer stamps make it so easy to line up each stamp. For this project you’ll need the following pieces of cardstock: 4-1/4″x5-1/2″ Poppy Parade, 3-1/4″x4″ Blueberry Bushel, 2-3/4″x3-1/2″ Very Vanilla and a scrap of Crumb Cake. Plus you’ll need Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Blueberry Bushel and Poppy Parade inks, and Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Markers, a Blender Pen, several clear acrylic blocks and a post-it note for masking.
First, stamp the small vase in Early Espresso ink on the scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock, and punch out using your Vase Builder punch and set aside. Next stamp the scalloped table top using Early Espresso ink on the piece of Very Vanilla, and then stamp the two other vases in Poppy Parade and Blueberry Bushel. Using a post-it note, cover the vases and scalloped table top, and stamp the sprig of cotton in Crumb Cake, and middle flower in Blueberry Bushel, and the tulips in Poppy Parade.
Using the lid of your Poppy Parade ink pad as a palette, color the tulips using the blender pen. Draw the tulip stems free hand using fine point end of your Crumb Cake stampin’ write marker. Next color the middle flowers using the brush end of your Balmy Blue stampin’ write marker. Using the lid of your Crumb Cake ink pad as a pallet, color the sprig of cotton with your Blender Pen and some Crumb Cake ink.
Stamp your sentiment, attach the punched vase in Early Espresso, and mat your stamped piece. I just love how the bold, wide mats add that extra pop of color!
