Oval Punch Vases

This weeks schedule is jam packed full so if I miss a day or two along the way please forgive me! My dear husband is healing well and therapy seems be be going ok. I am finally am getting to be able to do other things than care for him. One thing I got behind on was thank you cards. So here is one that will go out this week!

I saw this idea on someone else's blog. I saved the picture thinking it would have their name on it to give credit to but when I finally got to make it I found it had no name on it. So if you are the originator (or know who is) please let me know so I can give proper credit!

The vases are made with the oval punch. I cut a curve in the top and a flat bottom. I spritzed the vase with co-ordinating colors (since we do not have In Color markers). I then sponged the edges (of course ;) ). I used my Aqua-painter and Going Grey ink to make a shadow under the vases. I used various punches to make the flowers and the basic black marker to draw the stems.

Stamps: Heard From the Heart
Paper: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Only Orange, Always Artichoke. Brilliant Blue, Pacific Point, Going Grey, Basic Black Marker
Accessories: Large Oval Punch, Spritzer, Boho Blossom Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch, Double Circle Punch, Aqua Painter. Riding hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon


  1. I just love these vases. They are on my list of projects to do in an upcoming class.....

    Love your shadowing, too! It really caught my eye. The whole card is so artsy! Love it!

  2. great idea and like the spritz on the vase.

  3. So cute, Debbi! I saw these too, so maybe it was someone from our SU Demos blogroll. Very helpful, huh?

  4. This is a really cool card, I love cards that uses the punches in different ways.
