ICS Blog Hop Varied Vases


Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase a color challenge using the colors below. You may have arrived from Ginger Rabesa’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.


I decided to use the stamp set Varied Vases and coordinating Vases Builder punch. But my stamp table had other plans for this project. I used the Vases Builder punch with a different stamp set.

The stamp set Crafting Forever was at the top of the pile since we had used it at the Card Buffet on Sunday. I picked it up because I was reading the sentiment incorrectly during the buffet. As I was thinking about the conversation I had with Diane during the buffet, I took a real good look at the writing. I was saying the verse as shown on the card below during the buffet and Diane corrected me. I was squinting at the red rubber while reading it during the buffet and had not used this verse before. I have been leaving the label off on the backside of the stamp so the stamp sticks to the acrylic block better. So there was no label to read, just the squinting at the red rubber.

Raise your inky fingers if you have gotten lost in your stamp room and did not get the assigned house chores done. My hand goes up, but I am assigning the chores:) This was a funny moment during the buffet when I realized my eyes only saw what they wanted to see and I spoke what my eyes saw.

Use our 1/8 inch circle hand held punch to create the scissor holes…

Attach a piece of ribbon since we mark our favorite ribbon cutting scissors this way…

Use the Vases Builder punch for a pop of coastal cabana and blackberry bliss colors…

Those half circle stamps are the scissor loops.

All the supplies used plus the Wood Crate framelit and blackberry bliss marker. Use the marker directly on the verse so the “whe” is not inked:)

    My hand is up! I would rather stamp than do chores. I have told my husband, he should be thankful I hold classes at our home, otherwise, it may never get cleaned! Love the sentiment, will have to pull the set out again! Thanks for the reminder!
