Thank You

As you can tell I really like the new Vivid Vases stamp set.  But, by next week I'll be onto another set. There is just so many cards to make with this set I just couldn't resist just one more card.  Hope you like this one.  It is rather bold but I like it.  You could use any colors but it kinda grew on me.  I stamped a piece of Whisper White c/s- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2- using the Happy Watercolor stamp set on pg 22 (OC).  But this time I used Perfect Plum, Melon Mambo & Pink Pirouette inks.  After I stamped all over the paper I painted mod podge (Matte) all over it.  I then took a piece of tissue paper that I had crinkled up-unfolded it and put it onto of my stamped paper. (be sure not to rub all the crinkles out of it.   I loved the look but it needed something so I took the dotted stamp in the Happy Watercolor set and with Melon Mambo I began to stamp on top of the tissue paper.  Then I dotted some of the dots with glue and applied my dazzling diamonds.  There it was and I loved it.  BUT,  I wanted to change it up.  So I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlit pg 26 in the NEW Occasions Catalog (OC) #132965  $24.95 and cut out this cool background.  Plus, I still have all the Hexagons to use on another card from this background.  Love it!  The Stamp sets I used on the vases were:  Watercolor Wonder, Gorgeous Grunge & Perfect Pennants.  This was a Fun card. Really shiny & bright.  Hope you like it also.

  1. You're really going to town with this stamp set, Cheryl. I love how all of the vases are different. It looks great with the hive diecut behind the vases of flowers too.
