Vivid Vases in Bermuda Bay – Stampin’ Up!

I was so happy to see the Vivid Vases stamp carried over into the 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I used that image along with a little Modern Medley DSP to make my card to share today.  My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #113.

By the way, I shared a couple of pictures on my Facebook page yesterday of the goodies that my fabulous UPS guy left for me.  Head over there to see lots of sneak peeks at new catalog goodies!!  🙂

Vivid Vases - Stamp With Amy K

Screen Shot 2014-05-07 at 8.47.32 AM

I started by adhering a panel of Modern Medley DSP (retiring) to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL.  Then I adhered the layered panel to a Bermuda Bay card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Vivid Vases 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I used the Hexagon Punch to create the banner end on a strip of Modern Medley DSP, then I adhered the strip to the card front with SNAIL.

Vivid Vases 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the Vivid Vases image in VersaMark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel (say that three times fast!!), sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image.  Then I used my Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay ink pad to paint the flower images.  I let the panel dry completely and adhered it to a Basic Black card stock panel with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Vivid Vases 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I tied a piece of Silver Baker’s Twine through a Bermuda Bay button from the Brights Designer Buttons pack, then adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Modern Medly DSP - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of Modern Medley DSP to a Very Vanilla panel to complete the inside of the card.

  1. N-i-c-e color combo! Something about Bermuda Bay and black that just pops out. I really like the Modern Medley dsp too.

    I am waiting for my order to come later today. I did get my catalog yesterday. WOW, I’m still trying to absorb it all, lol! When my order comes it’s going to be like Christmas. I’m just so excited to see everything and try it all too! Hey, maybe with Mothers Day, maybe I can get some quality time in. 😉
