Chemistry Vases Complete Bundle
Do you ever wish you could make a card for the scientists in your life? This is a bundle of Chemistry Vases Stamp Set, coordinating die set, and stencil. Eureka! The Chemistry Vases Stamp Set features two test tubes, an Erlenmeyer flask, and a test tube clamp. The multi-layer images create a realistic look for the scientist (or science lover) in your life. The accompanying sentiments are charming and punny – what's not to love! Not into science? These also make the perfect vases for single-stem flowers or bouquets!

Chemistry Vases Stamp & Stencil Layering Guide
Rainbow Test Tubes
I started by stamping out 6 Test Tubes from the Chemistry Vases Stamp Set using Obsidian Ink.
I then added color to them using inks from the Rainbow Prism 6 Crisp Dye Ink Set and the Chemistry Vases Simple Coloring Stencil. Next, I added the measurement markings on each using either Obsidian Ink or Silver Lake; I wanted some contrast, so I chose to only use Obsidian Ink for the numbers.
Then, I cut the test tubes using the Chemistry Vases Die Set.
I thought it would be fun to have one of the sentiments in a test tube and a pair of tongs to hold it. I used Limestone Crisp Dye Ink to stamp the tongs onto some 80lb Classic Crest White Cardstock. I die cut these and adhered them to the test tube.
To create the background, I used the Broken Chevrons Stencil and some Sea Glass Crisp Dye Ink with a mini blending brush. I wanted to have the look of a tiled lab wall. I then added a strip of black card to the bottom of the card and adhered the test tubes using Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
I wanted to give the large Chemistry Vase another use and thought it would be fun to add a floral bouquet to it using the Our Friendship Blooms Bundle.
I stamped out the large Chemistry Vase using Obsidian Ink. I then used the Chemistry Vases Simple Coloring Stencil to add some Sea Glass Crisp Dye Ink to give the impression of water. I then stamped the shadow layer in Limestone Crisp Dye Ink. I set this aside while I worked on the Floral Bouquet.
I stamped the Bouquet in Obsidian Ink and then used the layered stamps to add color. I used Sweet Leaf and Just Green for the leaves and Stem. Pinkalicious and Razzleberry for the large Lily, Fresh Lemon, Honey Drizzle, Deep Iris, Midnight Violet, Chamomile, and Marigold for the smaller flowers.
TIP! I actually used one of the color combinations from the stamp set's tri-fold packaging!
I die cut the flowers, but before adding them to the vase, I trimmed the white edge from around the stems so it wouldn't spoil the illusion of the flowers being in the vase.
I adhered the flowers to the vase with wet glue and then onto an A2 notecard which had been prepared with the Radial Circles Cover die, cut in blue on a white card base. I then stamped out the sentiment and added color to tie in with the flowers. All elements were adhered to the card using Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing lots of ways to incorporate this set into your crafty projects.
1 Product, Multiple Ways!
Before you go, here are a few card ideas featuring this new stamp/die/stencil set!
Jaycee paired his stamped images with the Poured Acrylic 6×6 Paper Pack for quick and easy coloring. He also set all of the images on top of the Hexagon Blocks 3D Embossing Folder. Quick and effortless! Check out Jaycee's tutorial here.
You don't need to be into Chemistry or Science to adore these images! The beakers/test tubes can be used as vases for your beloved floral stamps. We love the clean and simple look of Helen's card above. Find out more here.
The punny sentiments in this set are absolutely adorable; we're sure everyone can appreciate them. Here's another CAS card idea by Teri. For some interest, she used patterned paper to add a soft border.
What a smart way to use enamel dots! Bridget used them as “bubbles” for her Chemistry beaker, and we're simply amazed at the creativity here!
When in doubt, go for rainbow colors! Maryam's lovely card has it all – colors, textures, shine, and – of course- chemistry! *wink wink*
