And now for today’s card… A quick card using the Varied Vases stamp set. I love how you can get a nice, quick and simple card with this set. It doesn’t require a ton of stamping or hand cutting a bunch of images.
I used the background stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set to get the watercolor wash background. You might have noticed that my vase is 3D. This is a really simple trick. I use my stylus from the Simply Scored tool along the back side edges of my vase. This causes the paper to curl slightly. Then I adhere it to the card stock using dimensionals so it doesn’t flatten out when it’s glued down.You can see here in the close-up that my vase looks like glazed porcelain. I used a bit of my fine-tip glue across the entire vase to give it that shiny look. I stamped my flowers in two different colors. First in Flirty Flamingo and then again in Berry Burst. You can see just a hint of the Flamingo peeking through the Berry.
This Varied Vases stamp set and coordinating punch are great when you need a quick and simple card. The combinations of flowers and vases are endless. I definitely recommend this pair as a must-have.
