Vivid Vases

TSSC310Oh…I have something soooo fun to tell you about!  First…it’s Monday so it is the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and as always Mary Jo’s sketch is just soooo much fun!  And second…(and this is the exciting part) do you see how cool the coloring is on my vases?  Yep…I’m pretty dang proud of it!  Let me tell you why…

You see this past Wednesday evening I attended a Stampin’ Up! sponsored event called Unite and Excite down in Mason Ohio.  Well you see one of the things we got to do was play with the NEW Blendabilities Alcohol Markers that will be coming out.  Each table got to stamp the Vivid Vases stamp with the Black Memento pad then we had 4 different sets of the blendability markers (Cherry Cobbler, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight) to play with.  I did vases in each of the 4 color groups.  WOW…were these ever fun and EASY to use.  And look…it actually looks like I know how to color!  Now I can hardly wait for when we can actually be able to buy these and show these off!  Oh…just soooo cool!  Now I did cut out my vases and added these on because my stamping wasn’t all that straight on the page.  Oh…and one more REALLY cool thing about these new markers…they are FANTASTIC for coloring rhinestones and pearls!  Yep…those rhinestones I colored with the markers!

Okay…here’s the details…

  • Daffodil Delight – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, use to cut out Paper Doily Sizzlit and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 4.  Stamp image using StazOn Jet Black (NOTE:  This was for the BASE image NOT the Vases!).  Color in the flowers using Cherry Cobbler and Real Read.
  • Add strip of white Real Red/White Wide Striped print 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 to bottom of Whisper White piece.
  • Add Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon then add to card front.
  • Stamp image using Memento Black Stamp Pad and color with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Marker set.  Cut out and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add Jumbo Rhinestones colored with the Cherry Cobbler and the Daffodil Delight Blendability Markers

Okay…a little about my card.  I LOVE the idea of watercoloring but well…I’m not that great with it and it TAKES ME FOREVER!!!  We will NOT discuss how LONG it took me to do this little image!  Usually it take me longer to take my picture, crop and copyright it, do a blog post then post it around then it take for me to make a card.  Today..NOT!!!  But I do think it turned out pretty and the watercoloring isn’t half bad!  I’m REALLY looking forward to the NEW ALCOHOL MARKERS Stampin’ Up! is coming out with!

Here’s the details:

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black
  • Watercolor Paper – 2 1/2 x 3 1/4.  Stamp image using Stazon JetBlack ink.  The vases are colored using Smoky Slate and blender pen, the stems/leaves are all Pear Pizzazz, the flowers are Primrose Petals and blender pen.
  • I folded some Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon and added to the left side then just did a ‘tail’ on the right side and added this behind the panel.  I added the panel using dimensionals.
  • To finish it off I took a Pink Pirouette medium button, tied some white baker’s twine on it and added it to the panel using dimensionals.
