Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!

The vase was stamped off once with the Blueberry Bushel ink to get that lighter look!

A list of products can be found at the end of this post, but there are some missing as they are not available to purchase yet!

Handy Tip to save cardstock

Today’s Tip:

I have a cool tip for you this week!

Imagine this….. You plan on making a card and you take out a certain colour from your scrap pile. You have a perfectly sized piece of card stock…….but oh no, it has a circle shape already punched out of it.

Tuesday Tip

See the photo above…..I have a perfectly sized layer I would like to use on my card front, but it has a Circle punched out of it. Why wouldn’t you be able to use this? Keep scrolling….

Tuesday Tip

I layered my Designer paper over a Primrose Petals card front and then….

Tuesday Tip

I covered it with another larger scallop circle punch. Hang on, where did the circle punch hole go? It is hidden under the top punch layer! Would anyone ever know?………No. This is a great way to save some card stock.

Another tip….before you glue all your layers together when setting up your card, if you decide you are going to use a sentiment and a punch, punch that sentiment layer out of one of your layers so it’s hidden and then glue your layers in place!

I ended up using this card as a birthday card and not a get well card which I had stamped sentiment for, so I flipped it over and stamped again. Another example of never wasting any card!

And this is what I came up with!
