Hello, friends! This is Maryám and today I’m going to be sharing some ideas on how to use the new Versatile Vases 2 Stamp Set. If you love flowers as much as I do, this 6 x 8 outline stamp set is going to be a must-have in your collection! This set features six vases in different sizes to accommodate the wide range of sizes in your flower stamp collection plus nine sentiments. In addition, there is also a coordinating die set and mask stencil set available to go along.
First Project “Cute” – Scrapbook Layout
For my first project, I decided to create an 8.5 x 11” inches layout. I wanted to do something cheerful and colorful, so I started by grabbing the Versatile Vases Mask Stencil 2, some small ink blending tools, some crisp dye inks, and a white sheet of cardstock. The colors I used are- Puffy Heart, Canyon Clay, Snapdragon, Warm Sunshine, Bamboo, and Sea Breeze.
To make the process easier, I cut the mask stencils in a way so that each vase was separated from the other. I then positioned the vases one by one, grabbed an ink, and used an ink blending tool to add some color.
I didn’t add the vases in random places over the page, instead, I played with different positions before actually applying ink, so that way once they were all ready, I would end up with a fun pattern.
After the ink blending process was done, with the help of my Obsidian Pigment Ink and an acrylic block, I stamped the vases on their corresponding place. Next, I added the photo, title, and journaling. For the title, I used the word “cute”, which I was able to create using the Linear Pathway Alpha – Solid Die Set.
Lastly, To embellish the page, I added a beautiful Lavender from the Build-A-Flower: Lavender Set, as well as some enamel dots and sequins.
Second Project “Hugs & Kisses” – Card
Now for my second project, I created an A2-sized top-folding card. I began by stamping one of the vases several times creating somewhat of a pattern. Following up, I stamped the same vase onto masking paper and fussy cut the image to create some masks. I could’ve used one of the pieces from the mask stencil to do this, but I decided to go with the masking paper instead since I more than one of the same vases.
Once all the vases were covered with masking paper, I grabbed an ink blending tool and added some Forest Glades Crisp Dye Ink. Next, took the Square Weave Stencil, positioned it in place, and added some Forest Glades Mixed Media Ink. I then removed the stencil, and sprinkled Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with my heat gun.
As you can see here, I ended up having almost two different shades of green because of the clear embossing powder. In case you didn’t know, the crystal clear in addition to adding a beautiful shiny look, also makes the colors look darker which is the look I was going for.
Last but not least, I stamped one of the flowers from the Nature Blossoms Stamp Set, added a sentiment from the Versatile Vases Stamp Set, and finished up by adding some sequins and enamel dots.
Third Project “Thank You” – Card
Just like the previous sample, for my last project I also created an A2-sized card, but this time, I went for a simpler look. To begin, I stamped two vases in different sizes. For one of them, I did some ink blending to give it a more realistic look and then adhered it in place with some foam dots.
Next, to add some interest to the card, I stamped a lavender from the Build-A-Flower Lavender Layering Stamp Set and used the coordinating die to cut the image.
For the sentiment of the card, I used “Thank you for everything” from our featured stamp set, and, as usual, finished up by adding some sequins and enamel dots.
