STAMPlorations Release Day 1 - Layered Vase


Hello, we've got a new release for you at STAMPlorations this week, and we're starting off today with my new set, Layered Vase.


The vase, flowers and leaves outline image is all one stamp, so all have to do is stamp that, then stamp the coordinating solid images, and you've filled your card front!  Easy peezy.


For my first card I stamped the vase in Stormy Sky, the leaves in Peeled Paint and the flowers in Shaded Lilac edged with Dusty Concord.  You can see from this where the corresponding solid images go.  I sloshed some Stormy Sky across the bottom to create a shadow, then fussy cut the whole image and overlaid it onto a stencil mop-up background (Sanna's Onion In Raws).


I stamped this next one in Ink On 3 Fadeout ink then used Distress Inks to paint everything.  I left a white outline around the vase.


For this card I only used the solid images, with a little help from one of the stamps in the Artsy Border Maker set to make a stalk.  I used Distress Oxides, kissing the stamp with a darker colour on the edge of the flowers.  I used another of the Artsy Border Maker stamps to create a border down the side of the card before mounting the stamped panel.  Then I finished it off with a Skinny Sentiment.


The longest solid stamp is the shadow that goes inside the vase, but it makes a great tulip leaf too!

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created, and don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win: there are two prizes available - a $20 gift code for one winner and the stamp set of their choice from this release for another.  The stamps are 10% off until 19 February, and if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get an extra 20% off.
