Varied Vases card ideas

Hello my crafty friends

Today I'm sharing cards made with the lovely Varied Vases stamp set and Vases Builder punch from Stampin' Up!

The first card is the one featured in my latest YouTube video, which you can find later on in this post. If I'm honest, I've been in a creative slump recently and when that happens, I usually turn to Pinterest or the Stampin' Up! catalogues. Both great places are full of inspiration to help with your creative mojo.
This card is so bright and cheerful - do you love the colour combo? This time I didn't use my colour coach. The design is inspired by a card in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue. I often use some of the smaller stamps in sets to add a bit of texture to a card panel. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Not too fussy and do you like the tip about stretching the ribbon? Below is the inside.

I would love you to let me know what you think?
The next card is inspired by the current annual catalogue. The flowers and sentiment are stamped in Soft Suede ink and the flowers coloured with watercolour pencils. The card base is Crumb Cake, Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder, Daffodil Delight card, Classic Label Punch and Nature's Twine. ( I find the twine a big thick so I usually separate the strands, which is a win win as it goes further.) I used two for the bow and two for the vertical piece.
Here's the inside - cute right?
This next card has the same layout. The base is Mint Macaron, whisper white is used for the panel on the front and Soft Sea Foam for the sentiment and a strip with copper trim. The flowers are stamped in Soft Suede and coloured with Mint Macaron.
Here's the inside.
The last card has a similar layout, the base is Thick Whisper White, Coastal Cabana card for the strip on the right (you may spot it has treated with my homemade shimmer spray), Brights 6" x 6" DSP pack, Whisper White for the Stitched Circle, soft sea foam, coastal cabana and smoky slate inks, white flax ribbon and retired pearls
I left the inside blank - can you spot the shimmer?
