Introducing Gracious Vases Day One

Welcome to the first day of the Papertrey Ink June countdown! I am super excited to share with you the next stamp set in my Stamping Simply line up... Gracious Vases! Which is available for purchase at Papertrey Ink starting June 15th.

Gracious Vases is a $15 set that includes a number of modern vases and perfectly sized fillers, which allows you to have fun mixing and matching to create the perfect center piece for your creations. The sentiments are broken down, which makes for perfect placement and includes even more mixing and matching possibilities. And I am so in love with the font selection of this set!

Now how about a couple samples!...First up, a simple invitation. I die cut a Mat Stack #3 from some Autumn Abundance pattern paper and attached it to a kraft card base with dimensional adhesive. Then wrapped the card base with some Spring Moss satin ribbon.To create a simple focal point, I started by stamping a die cut circle with the larger vase in Orange Zest. Placed a mask over the larger vase and then stamped the smaller vase in Summer Sunrise and the filler in Spring Moss. I then stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and attached the circle to the card base. This sentiment is actually two separate pieces, "you are" and "invited". So, if I had chose to, I could have easily inked and stamped both in different colors.Next up, a thank you card. A sentiment like this is perfect for a number of reason, possibly even for that hostess who invited you to the party you recently attended. For this card I was going for the look of a decorative vase arrangement on top of a table or counter of some sort. I started by die cutting a Mat Stack #5 from Rustic Cream cardstock, trimmed it in half & impressed it using the Woodgrain Impression Plate. I stamped the impressed mat with the sentiment (again, this sentiment was created using two of the sentiment stamps included in the set) and then attached it to a Rustic Cream card base with dimensional adhesive.I then stamped and hand cut these Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist vases. Played around with the arrangement, but did not attach them to the card base yet. Once the arrangement was figured out, I stamped the fillers directly onto the card base, being careful to stamp each in it's proper place. Then I was able to attach the vases onto the card base at varying heights.

Well, that concluded my first look at Gracious Vases. I truly hope that you enjoyed! Be sure to visit Nichole Heady and Besty Veldman for even more Gracious Vases inspiration. Also, Dawn McVey, Heather Nichols, Melissa Bickford & Alli Miles have peek to share with you of their newest sets for the month. And last but not least Jessica Witty has some of Lizzie Jones' Rhythm & Soul goodness to share too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. When some posted on the Forum that they have enough flowers, I'll just bet they had no idea your Gracious vases would be so different. Adore the font and versatility of the sentiments. Your cards are beautiful and SO very clever (using a Mat Stack for a shelf ~ who knew)!

  20. Okay, I admit, I was so wrong! During sneak peek I thought I really didn't have a need for another vase and flower set. But I have seen the err of my thoughts. This set showcases beautifully and could clearly become my new "go to" set for everything. Congratulations on hitting it out of the park!
