How about a couple samples?!...
For today projects I've put the linear vases to use. I began this card by stamping the vase onto a white cardstock panel in Smokey Shadow ink.
Then stamped the flower arrangement (flowers and leaves from Natural Beauties) in a color combo of Sweet Blush, Melon Berry and Simply Chartreuse. Take Note: The shot above is to give you an idea of how I figured out my arrangement. I knew I wanted to pop a few flowers off with dimensional adhesive, so it didn't matter to me if I over lapped a few of the images while playing around.
I finished the card off with a couple hand-cut blossoms, buttons and a sentiment from the original Gracious Vases stamp set.
This next card began by stamping a row of vases (using all four linear images), in Smokey Shadow ink, onto a white card base.
The focal point vase was stamped using the solid image in Smokey Shadow ink. Then I topped the vase with a die cut and stamped hydrangea with leaves (from Happy Hydrangea). Finished the card off with a Gracious Vases sentiment, a Smokey Shadow cardstock strip at the base and a few rhinestones.
Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady and Besty Veldman for peeks Heart-2-Heart #6, Ashley Newell for more Mega Gracious Vases and Danielle Flanders for Floral Foliage. Also, Dawn McVey, Heather Nichols & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.
