Varied Vases

You know how you have to just cut small pieces of cardstock off the sides to make layers?  I don’t know about you, but I think I want a certain sized layer and then realize I need it a bit smaller so I cut off 1/8″ or 1/4″ on each side.  Do you need a great way to use up those small strips of cardstock?  Here is a card that you can make using them.  I think it adds a bit of interest to the card.

I used the stamp set called Varied Vases.  This set has a matching punch (I love punches) called Vases Builder and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I didn’t use the punch on this card but I could have and it makes it so much easier than fussy cutting each vase.

I first cut out the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Normally you stamp first and then cut but I thought it would be easier to line everything up if I cut first.  Then I  stamped the “shelf” outline in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then the filler part in Lovely Lipstick.  Varied Vases is a two step stamp set which means it uses two or more stamps to make an image.  Then I stamped the vases and flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and I used my Stampin’ Blends to color them in.  I used Light Pool Party for the water and Dark Pineapple Punch, Dark Lovely Lipstick and Dark Highland Heather for the flowers.
