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!
