How to Step it Up with Varied Vases

Hello friends

I hope, like me, you found some time to be creative this week? I get so much pleasure from spending "me" time in the craft room!

Today I wanted to share three cards that I made with the lovely Varied Vases stamp set and matching builder punch. You can also purchase these as a bundle and save 10%. So I've listed them below as a bundle and separately.

I used the same colours in all three versions; Basic Black, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade with a top folding Whisper White card base. The Poppy Parade piece measures 8cm x 11cm and the Whisper White layer 7.5cm x 10.5cm.

The first is very simple using just stamps, ink and cardstock. This one is ideal for new crafters and is a great introduction to stamping and the joy of creating. As the stamp set is photopolymer it is easy to see exactly where to place the images. There's a video for this card card which you can watch later in this post. I'm sorry that the video is a little jumpy - I'm still trying to find better equipment to make my videos but it's a minefield and I want to get it right!!
The second is for casual crafters and shows how you can improve a project by adding some punched elements, using dimensionals, embellishments and applying some sparkle i.e. Clear Wink of Stella, of course!
The last is for avid crafters and really Steps It Up. Using the Big Shot (my precious!!) always makes a huge difference to a project. I've added some amazing texture to a cut down piece of Poppy Parade using the Tufted dynamic embossing folder. I stamped the flowers again on a scrap of Whisper White and added them with dimensionals as well as some ribbon and linen thread. The birthday sentiment is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set and that is punched with the Classic Label punch.
Here's the video, I'd really love to know what you think.
