Varied Vases, Good Morning Magnolia, Thinking of You Card

While looking though the stamp sets I have, I ran across the "Varied Vases" set. I have not played with it for a while and I have a feeling it's going to retire.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock and on top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White.  I taped the Whisper White piece to the Basic Black piece.

I cut a 5" x 2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 6 x 6" Regals pack.  I need to use those packs more too.  There's a awful lot of paper in those packs and in all the colors in each collection!! I taped the DSP in place on the left side of the Whisper White piece.

I took a piece of black ribbon and I taped it to the DSP and Whisper White piece.  I used the edge of the DSP as a guide for the ribbon. I taped the ends of the ribbon on the backside using some snail first and once they were where I wanted them, I taped them down with scotch tape. Then I taped the entire piece to the card base.

Next I stamped the vase from the "Varied Vases" set on a piece of scrap Whisper White using black Memento ink.  

I stamped the words from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set using black Memento ink. I die cut them using the Stitched rectangle die that is close to 3-5/8" x 2-1/4".  I left about 3/8" of open space at the bottom.  I should have only left 1/4" instead.  I had to make the stems shorter than I wanted. I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock at 3-7/8" x 2-1/2" for the layer.

I stamped the vase from the "Varied Vases" using black Memento ink. I punched it out with the matching punch.  I lined up the vase on the rectangle piece to see where the flowers were going to go. I stamped the flowers and colored them in using the Real Red Blends Pens.  And I colored the center of the flowers with the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen.  

I taped the rectangles together and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  I set the vase in place using small Dimensionals.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and it was done.

This was a fun and quick card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I have loved this stamp set since Mary Fish designed it. Thanks for the nudge to play with it again. I love your pretty card. Color coordination is one thing I love about Stampin Up products. Enjoy your day, Wanda.
