If you love the Versatile Vases Stamp Set, you know how versatile and fun it is to use these vases along with your floral creations. This Versatile Vases 2 Stamp Set will take your floral arrangement to new heights!
For the vase, I clear-embossed it on Transparent Vellum. I then took Artist Alcohol Markers and colored the backside of the vase. Inside the vase, I also added some “dirt”, leaves, and stems. The coordinating die makes die cutting the vase a simple task.
Let's not forget the obvious…. the Spotted Orchid Stamp Set is absolutely spot on. I cannot believe the realistic look these stamps can achieve! I stamped the orchid in Martian Terrain Crisp Dye Ink and used the Layering Stencil for the largest outer layer. The petals look even lighter and more realistic!
Project 2: A Little Bit of Love Stamp & Die Bundle and Woven Heart Die Set
As a fresh start, what could be more perfect to promote friendship and love with this “A Little Bit of Love” Stamp Set?
I love that you now can coordinate ANY skin color based on your recipient(s) and yours…down to the finger nails! The Woven Heart Die provides the perfect background for this design. Isn't that heartwarming?
The Enchanted Rose Stamp Set is likely the largest outline stamp there is! If you love coloring, this is definitely worth considering.
If you love embossing (like I do), this stamp set has gorgeous lines and details. To top off the gorgeous backdrop, the Illusion Heart Die Set is sure to catch your eyes!
This Illusion Heart Die Set can be used in so many ways. You can simply use just outlines, partially inlaid (as the example here shows) or completely inlaid!
We all love the ease of using an embossing folder! This Swirl Motif 3D Embossing Folder provides that special touch of elegance. The motif is bold, and yet, subtle.
The stamped, stenciled, and die-cut Spotted Orchid looks stunning against the motif and Gold String Washi Tape.
The die-cut “Thanks” from Simple Greetings Die Set conveys the message perfectly! Now you must check out today's blog hop as each designer has his/her own take with this refreshingly beautiful release.
