Mega Gracious Vases Day Four

Howdy everyone! Welcome back, so glad you could join me for day 4 of the Papertrey Ink July Countdown. Yep, you guessed it... another day of Mega Gracious Vase and dies.  I've only had enough daylight to create one card for today, but I assure you that it is a good one!

Shall I get started?!  I think I will...
Today's project showcases the versatility of the Mega Gracious Vases dies.  Not only can these vases be filled with just about any type of flower.  There are endless options as to the look or style of the vases.  When you put the dies to action you can cut anything from cardstock, pattern paper, vellum, clear cardstock, felt and etc... you name it!
The vase I created today began life as a plain Rustic Cream die cut shape.  I stamped a woodgrain pattern in Fine Linen ink, using one of the images from the Modern Wood Mats stamp set, directly over the entire shape.  Giving it a whole new look!
Poping out from the vase are these pretty roses, but not just any old roses... spray roses (which happen to be my favorite type). Anyways, I stamped one of the stem like images from the Peaceful Garden stamp set and instaintly created stems. Topped the stems with a few tiny rose images from The Sweet Life stamp set (available begining July 15th), stamped in a color combo of Sweet Blush, Melon Berry & Canyon Clay.  Finished the card off with a Signature Greetings II sentiment (set also available begining July 15th).

Well, that's it from me today but do remember...Mega Gracious Vases stamp set and dies available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning July 15th. In the mean time, I'd love to know what you think so far, so please share!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady for more peeks. Also, Dawn McVey, Heather Nichols & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
