Stampin Up Vivid Vases-Paper Piecing Technique

Hi Stampers,
Are you thinking Spring yet?  I am, at least in my making of cards. This card is my entry card for the Dawn Olchefske DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge.  It is the Color My World DSC#075 Challenge for this week.   The color chart for entry is posted below my card.  Those are the colors that I had to work with and create a card to enter .I really LOVE the way this card came out!  There are quite a few different takes out there on the Vivid Vases Cards out there right now because of the stamp being in the Occasions Catalog.  It's funny, when I saw this Stamp Set I really didn't have any desire to buy it. But as time went on and I thought about it more and more, and ideas started brewing in my head as to what I could do with it.  Then.... I knew I had to have it.  Great stamp for Easter, Spring, Mothers Day or just a plain Hello or a Friendship Card too. Heck, you could even use this stamp for a "Girlfriend Birthday Card too.  Endless... I hope you like the card and it gives you Spring Fever.  I have made a YouTube Video for you below to explain how I made the card.  If you have time, leave me a comment...I would love to hear what you think.

  1. On the 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" scrap (for vase) and using Stazon Ink, stamp the Vases Stamp onto paper. Cut the paper into strips separating the vases. Using different stamps from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set, stamp patterns from the stamp set onto the vases with the 3 different ink colors. Cut out the vases and set aside. 
  2. Stamp the Vivid Vases Stamp on the other 3-1/4" x 4-1/2 piece of WWCS. 
  3. Using the cut out vases, glue some vases onto the top layer of Vivid Vases and "Pop" some other of the vases with Dimensionals. 
  4. Using the markers, color the flowers on the top layer. 
  5. On the Tangerine Tango CS, stamp using Tangerine Tango Ink and Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to form a light background pattern. 
  6. Using Snail, attach the Tangerine Tango layer 1 onto the card base. 
  7. "Pop" WWCS layer 2 onto the layer 1 tangerine tango layer. 
  8. "Pop" the sentiment layer 3 onto layer 2.
