Pretty Vases - Stampin' Up! Varied Vases

I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! kept the Vase builder punch and the 2 coordinating stamp sets.  I'm still seeing great projects made with these products and I didn't want the fun to end.  I highlighted the punch and the Varied Vases stamp set in one of my last classes of the just retired catalog.  It's not a difficult card but the embossing gives it a nice wow factor.

  The trick to getting the images placed just right so the vases fit onto the shelf is to use the Stamparatus.  I lined up everything just right so that my stampers could ink up the flowers, shelf and hello all at once stamp onto the Sahara Sand cardstock.  Trying to do each one individually would have resulted in smudges, crooked images and misalignment's.  Stamparatus makes it easy.

  Once the embossing was done some quick punching for the vases and popping them up with mini dimensionals set the stage for adding a pop of purple.  The solid vase is Gorgeous Grape and the other is the now retired Gingham Gala DSP in Highland Heather but any DSP would look great in this clean and simple design.

  To finish off the look a bakers twine bow goes across the card front and an adhesive sequin and rhinestone decorate one vase.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
