Birthday Vases - Stampin' Up! Varied Vases

 Well it was quite exciting around Richmond yesterday afternoon.  And by exciting I don't mean the fun kind of exciting.  We had tornado warnings all over the area for many hours as well as several actual tornados with damage and from what I've heard at least one person died.  Many kids got stuck sheltering in place at schools and could not get home for 3+ hours and I was so thankful that my boys were able to get home safely before that happened.  Tornadoes are not normal for this area so it's a bit nervewracking.  We have some sun and blue skies right now so I hope the severe weather is over and done with!

 Today I'm sharing another card my stampers made at my August class.  The Varied Vases set is a great all purpose stamp set.  There are several nice sentiments in a lovely script font but the images can easily go with many other sentiments depending on what you need at the moment.  We used the birthday greeting as you can never have enough birthday cards in your stash.

 My stampers had a choice between 2 base colors; Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape and it seemed that the Gorgeous Grape won the popularity contest as I don't even have a sample of that color to show here.  But you can picture it in your mind!

  For this one the base is Balmy Blue then another layer of Balmy Blue embossed with the Subtle embossing folder which is awesome for adding just a little bit of texture without overdoing it.

  We used the polka dot tulle ribbon tied around the embossed layer to add a bit of detail.  I love this ribbon as it is a great weight for cards.  You can tie it and it is not lumpy or bulky so will go in an envelope and the mail just fine.

  The open vases and sentiment were stamped in Blueberry Bushel across a panel of Whisper White.  The flower stems and fill are stamped in Call Me Clover and Gorgeous Grape.  The fill layers are stamped off once for a lighter tone.

  Using the Vases builder punch a vase was punched in each of the colors and then layered over the stamped image with 2 of them popped with dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
