The new Occasions Mini has some awesome new products! I just received my catalog preview order, and I love the products even better in person! I have been hoping they would come out with more outlined stamp sets, and I got my wish! One of those sets is called Vivid Vases. It was one of the first ones that caught my eye. Here is a card sample I made with it. I was inspired by a card made by Susan Goetter.
(This card is oversized due to the image size. See dimensions below)
This single image stamp comes with the sentiment under the vases, but I chose to separate the sentiment from the vases (on the card, not the stamp itself).
First, inking up only the vases, I stamped them using Jet Black StazOn ink. Then I used a grid ruler and a waterproof pen (Sakura Pigma Graphic Pen 1mm) to draw a straight line across the card. Next, I cleaned the stamp (really good!) and inked up only the sentiment portion with StazOn. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the sentiment right above the line. Then I used my Aquapainter to color in the image. It was not the best choice, as you can see. Whisper White cardstock does not like to be saturated. I still think it turned out pretty cute!
