Sneak Peek Varied Vases

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.
