I love it when Stampin’ Up!® comes up with new products that go together with other products. In this case, the new stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog called Vibrant Vases matches the stamp set called Varied Vases and the Vase Builder Punch which are both in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog. Both stamp sets are two step stamp sets which means it take two or more stamps to make an image. They are easy to line up because they are Photopolymer stamps that you can see through.
To make this card I first stamped the vase in Memento Black Ink and colored it with the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker. I then punched it out using the Vase Builder Punch. Then I stamped the flowers in Memento Black Ink and colored it with the Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Up!® Marker onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I adhered the vase with a Dimensional to give it a little depth and then stamped the greeting underneath that.
The ribbon I used is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and is gorgeous! It is Coastal Cabana on one side and Granny Apple Green on the other. The ribbon is 3/8″ and has a satin finish to it. The Designer Series Paper I used is called Broadway Bound and is in the Annual Catalog.
I love it when Stampin’ Up!® comes out with new products that go with older products so you can mix and match. A perfect example of this is the new stamp set called Vibrant Vases that is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This stamp set goes with the Varied Vases stamp set and the Vase Builder Punch that are both in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog.
This new stamp set has a bunch of new and fun stamps in it that are different than the Varied Vases set. Vibrant & Varied Vases are two step stamp sets which means you use two or more stamps to make one image. In this case, one stamp is for the vase design and another stamp is for the center. The centers in the Vibrant Vases set are more of a watercolor look than a solid image. It may look like I did not get a good image but it is supposed to be that way for a softer look.
To make this card I used both stamp sets. I stamped the vases from the Vibrant Vases stamp set in Basic Gray and the insides in Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather and Mango Melody. I used the flower stamps from the Varied Vases stamp set and used Lemon Lime Twist for the stems.
Here is a close up of both stamp sets so you can see the difference. I really like both of them because they are different from each other yet they both use the Vase Builder Punch. The first picture is Varied Vases and the second is Vibrant Vases. If you buy all three products you can earn free product from the Sale-a-bration Catalog!

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.
This is another card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It uses a new stamp set called Varied Vases. This stamp set has a matching punch called Vases Builder and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
To make this card I first stamped the scalloped edge in Coastal Cabana. Then I stamped the medium and small vase outline in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and used a second stamp for the inside of the vases using Gorgeous Grape and Mango Melody. After that I stamped the stems and flower outline stamps in Memento Ink again and finished them off by stamping the inside of the flowers with Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape and Coastal Cabana. We used the punch to cut out the larger vase after stamping the outline in Memento Ink and the inside using Coastal Cabana and attached it to the card using a Dimensional. Last but not least, I stamped the sentiment.
Here are some more beautiful samples using this Bundle from the Annual Catalog.
Hello everyone. It is Friday which means it is time for another Stamp Off Challenge. This week our challenge is to make a Mother’s Day Card.
I decided to use a new stamp set that will be in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalog called Varied Vases. This set has a matching punch with it and you will be able to save 10% purchasing it in a bundle. This stamp set and punch was designed by Mary Fish, a Million Dollar Demonstrator. When you reach a million dollars in sales one of the fun things you get to do is design your own stamp set.
Varied Vases is a fun two step stamp set. This is where you can make one image using two or more stamps. I did not use this technique for this card. Instead, I stamped each vase and flower stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends. I used the Light Daffodil Delight, Light Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral Blends.
The sentiment is from You’re Inspiring. This is a stamp set that is in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and is carrying over into the new Annual Catalog. This sentiment is actually two lines. I covered the top line with Micropore Tape, inked the stamp and then pulled the Tape off before stamping on the card. It is an easy way to mask something.
On a side note, my mother turned 93 in April. She is doing great, lives in an Independent Living residence and still drives. I have to admit, the driving part scares me to death but she assures me she only goes to a couple of stores that are just down the street. It still scares me though!
Now let’s go see what amazing cards Buffy and Jackie made for their Moms.
