Vibrant Vases Trio Cards
If you're a fan of the Vivid Vases from the Annual Catalog, you're going to love expanding the possibilities with the new Vibrant Vases stamp set. It was designed to coordinate perfectly with the Vase Builder Punch, just like the original stamp set. I love having so many options!
Background Basics—I received this swap card from Mary Anne Grimmer and I love it so much! It starts with a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" quarter sheet of Blueberry Bushel cardstock as the card base. The actual card is the 5-1/4" x 8" piece of Whisper White that's scored at 4" and mounted onto the card base. What a fun card opening!
Next, she added three 5-1/4" x 1-1/8" strips of different colors of cardstock—Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana & Old Olive—and embossed them all with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. She adhered each strip onto the card front, with the middle panel having the debossed side facing up.
Sweet Sentiment—The Vibrant Vases sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 2-3/4' x 3/4" strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock. It was adhered over a 2-1/4" Circle Punch in Whisper White to create a nice foundation for the focal point.
Vase Trio—The focal point was assembled by stamping the Vibrant Vases tulip stem in Old Olive ink three times onto the circle. Then three vase images were inked in Memento and stamped onto the same colors as the background panels. They were each punched with the Vase Builder Punch; two were adhered with SNAIL, and one was popped up with Dimensionals.
Finally, the tulips were stamped in Mango Melody ink onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched with the Vase Builder Punch, as well. One of those flowers were popped up with Dimensionals. I added a little Old Olive Linen Trim bow to one vase with a "pinched" Glue Dot.
Two Cool—The second version features the same Blueberry Bushel card base, but this time I added panels in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz for a slightly different look. I liked all of them de-bossed in texture.
Vase Trio—I also stamped the vases on the same three colors as the background. Everything else is identical to Mary Anne's card. We'll be making one of these cards at the Occasions Catalog Kickoff Party this weekend. I can't wait!
