The Stamp Review Crew is hopping again and this time we are putting Varied Vases in the spotlight! This is such a fantastic set. I love the little vases and flowers. The coordinating Vases Builder punch makes it even better. I had played with set quite a bit when it first came out. Check out this post or this one for even more Varied Vases inspiration. This time, I wanted to try a different approach with this set.
For my first card, I chose to let the sweet flowers take center stage. I started with a gradient watercolor wash on three small panels of watercolor paper. i used Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana. Once completely dry, I stamped the flowers on each panel with Memento Black ink. I adhered a panel of Wood Textures DSP on a Whisper White card base which I had wrapped three rows of Linen Thread. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on the bottom of the Wood Textures DSP. I adhered the three flower panels with dimensionals for some added depth. I finished off with a little rhinestone one each panel. I colored these with Stampin’ Blends markers – Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay.
My next card brings back the Wood Textures DSP. I think it is a great pairing with Varied Vases. I stamped the Vase in Coastal Cabana, punched it out with the Vase Builder punch and wrapped a bit of Linen Thread around it. I stamped the flowers in Memento Black, Poppy Parade and Lemon Lime twist and cut them out. (Full disclosure, I cut them out with my Scan-n-Cut.) I layered all of this on a Whisper White panel and stamped the sentiment along the edge of the Wood Texture DSP squares. I added two little Poppy Parade Ribbon loops before gluing the Whisper White layer to the Gray Granite card base. Notice the texture on the card base? I ran it through the NEW Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder is in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday catalog! It is really awesome!
That’s a wrap for me. I am the final stop on the blog hop, so if you started at the beginning, you have seen all of the amazing Varied Vases projects. You can go forward to Charlet, the first stop of the blog hop. Or you can go back to Mickey and work your way back around. If you started the hop somewhere in the middle make sure you continue on so you don’t miss any of the fantastic inspiration! And as always, you can find the blog hop archives over on the Stamp Review Crew blog.
