Varied Vases…it’s just that good!

I’ve got another simple card using the Varied Vases Bundle (stamp set and Vases Builder Punch).  This time I’m using shades of blue, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana to be exact.  Seem to me that no matter what I do with this stamp set, I end up with a gorgeous card…it’s just that good!

The base of the card as well as all the layers are Whisper White.  I only added color in the use of the Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon and the inks, but isn’t it amazing the amount of interest that can be created with a little shading and water coloring?

I stamped the vases with Bermuda Bay ink, then picked up some ink with an Aqua Painter and color washed each vase and allowed them to dry before punching them out with the vases Builder Punch.  The stems and sentiment were stamped in Memento ink then the flowers were stamped  with Coastal Cabana.  The two flowers on the outside were stamped full strength while the center flower was stamped off first to get a lighter shade of the Coastal Cabana.  Once all the stamping and water coloring was completed, I popped the vases up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give them more depth.

Gorgeous Grape Varied Vases

 

I’ve got a bunch of new product to showcase on today’s card, starting with the Varied Vases stamp set.  I just can’t say enough about this set.  I love the simplicity of this card with lots of Whisper White paired with Gorgeous Grape.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base and added a layer of Whisper White that I ran through the Striped Scallops Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of my favorite ribbon, the Gorgeous Grape 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon.  I stamped the vase and flowers in Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White then added the color to the flower petals with Gorgeous Grape Ink.  The “frame” is from the Layering Squares Framelits and then I finished it with the sentiment stamped on a banner of Highland Heather popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love how you can simply stamp the outline of the flowers and leave it at that or you can opt to add color to the flower petals with the two step stamping images or you can opt to color the petals with markers.

After my post on Friday with my color spectrum board (you can view it HERE) I received hundreds of comments and questions about past boards that I’ve done and also what order I put my colors in.  All of my cardstock, ink and markers are organized in Rainbow order rather than color families.  Today’s post is to share with you my Rainbow Color order as well as some photos of my past color spectrum boards.
