Hi stampin' friends! Today's card is one I did recently in a live video for my downline. I absolute LOVE this color combination of Soft Sea Foam and Poppy Parade!
You'll find the Varied Vases stamp set and coordinating punch on page 45 of the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! catalog. The stamp set is photopolymer, so user friendly when lining up the outline and filler images. It includes 34 images with sentiments for birthday and thanks as well as some basic greetings so it's very versatile as well! The set and punch can be purchased separately but are available this year as a bundle, which means a 10% savings for you!
To create this card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the largest Stitched Shapes framelits oval and the Big Shot. I stamped all the outline images first, using black Memento ink. Before stamping the flowers, I placed a post it note as a mask at the bottom of the vase so that the stems would not overlap at the bottom. The inks for the vases were stamped off onto scratch paper before stamping them inside the line images using Soft Sea Foam and Balmy Blue. I used Soft Sea Foam and Poppy Parade inks to stamp the filler images for the scallop border, flowers and leaf.
I ran a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock through the Big Shot in the Simple Stripes embossing folder to create the background, then layered onto a piece of Poppy Parade. I wrapped linen thread around these layers twice and tied a bow in the front, then layered the Whisper White oval over the front with Stampin' Dimensionals and finished it up by layering all onto a Soft Sea Foam card base.
