Welcome to the kickoff for the March Countdown! Are you ready for five days packed with inspiration? Today we’re featuring new products from Lizzie Jones and Lexi Daly. You’ll see petite posies and chic vases from Lizzie and a follow-up to Lexi’s popular Pencil Me In set that you’re going to adore. Let’s get started!

So many of us have full gardens worth of flowers in our stamp collections, but we only have a  handful of vessels to display our gorgeous blooms. These Vogue Vases coordinate beautifully with Simple Stems as well as a wide array of blossoms that you may already have on hand. Inspired by the vases one might find in their favorite trendy home decor shop, these images are substantial enough to act as a grand focal point on projects both simple and elaborate.

Available for purchase March 15th. CLICK HERE for further product details.

 

The effortlessly sweet flowers in Simple Stems are perfect for building cheerful bouquets to fill your Vogue Vases. These mix and match stems and blooms give you the flexibility to create many different looks by pairing the elements in unique ways each time you use the set. Included are sentiments to cover a wide variety of occasions from Birthday to Mother’s Day and beyond. How will your garden grow?

A partner set to Pencil Me In, Ink It In is all about the pen – solid standard, patterned novelty, or even colored pens. The sentiments include a few basics like thank you and hello, as well as a teacher quote, all in a mix of two handwritten style fonts. Also included are a few doodled accents to add to your projects. Ink it in!

Ink It In: Quoted is part of the Ink It In collection. The set includes words in the same fonts as the main set along with images to build an inspiring quote from Malala Yousafzai. “One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” Add a pen or notepad from the other two sets or mix and match to create something different. Ink it in!

Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!

Betsy-Veldman

Betsy Veldman is featuring Vogue Vases + Simple Stems.

By grouping similar images together, Betsy was able to create a single, larger focal point on this card. Her card is also a fabulous example of not needing to fill all of the vases too! She used the space above the shorter vases as a perfect place to stamp her sentiment. That also has the added effect of making the tall vase the center of attention. Gorgeous!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Vogue Vases, Simple Stems, In the Shadows
  • INK: Saffron Spice, Honey Nut, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Melon Berry, Fine Linen, Berry Sorbet, Soft Stone
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White cardstock, Berry Sorbet cardstock
  • DIES: Vogue Vases, Simple Stems
The glassy effect Betsy achieved on these vases is truly amazing! By embossing on vellum she created dimension and texture that’s realistic and absolutely beautiful. By keeping the vases all the same color she kept the design from getting too busy. That also allowed her to use bright pops of color on the blooms to really make them shine.  
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Vogue Vases, Simple Stems, In the Shadows
  • INK: Tropical Teal, New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Simply Chartreuse, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Blueberry Sky, Melon Berry, Pale Peony, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White cardstock, Vellum cardstock, Pale Peony
  • DIES: Vogue Vases, Simple Stems
  • OTHER: Clear embossing powder

 

Betsy’s framed bouquet on this card is simply stunning. Her flowers are made all the more lovely with her hand-drawn details and softly blended background. And that frame? Amazing! You’ll see more of that later in the countdown and you definitely won’t want to miss it.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Simple Stems, Stitch in Time Borders
  • INK: Saffron Spice, Aqua Mist, Lilac Grace, Harvest Gold, Classic Kraft, Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Ripe Avocado, Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Lilac Grace
  • DIES: Simple Stems, Stitch In Time Borders
  • OTHER: Ink blending sponge, pens

 

Heather-Nichols

Heather Nichols is featuring Ink It In + Ink It In: Quoted + Ink It In: Notebook.

Heather can make Kraft cardstock the star of any show! Her neutral background pattern is the perfect complement to the colorful, mix and match pens on this thank you card. And using the Moments Inked: Edged die to give her panel an authentic, notebook paper fringe was a stroke of design genius!
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Ink It In, School Days
  • INK: True Black, Fresh Snow, Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Prairie Grass, Amethyst Allure
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, kraft, Smokey Shadow
  • DIES: Ink It In, Moments Inked: Edged

 

Heather used the small icons in the Ink It In: Quoted set to create the charming background on this card. Stamping them in white was the perfect way to keep things light while also reinforcing the content of the quote. The tiny speckles are another lovely texture-adding touch.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Ink It In, Ink It In: Quoted, Ink It In: Notebook
  • INK: True Black, Fresh Snow, Aqua Mist, Prairie Grass, Soft Stone, Classic Kraft
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, kraft, Prairie Grass
  • DIES: Ink It Ink, Ink It In: Quoted, Ink It Ink: Notebook
  • OTHER: marker

 

Heather’s use of the gift card tabs to hold her card’s greeting is so clever! And using select phrases from the quote in the Ink It In: Quoted set is a fantastic way to expand the versatility of the sentiment. 
Supplies:
  • STAMP: Ink It In, Ink It In: Quoted
  • INK: True Black, Soft Stone, Pure Poppy
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, kraft, Pure Poppy, Prairie Grass, Olive Twist
  • DIES: Ink It In: Notebook, Big Apple
  • OTHER: Pure Poppy baker’s twine, wood veneer apple (Studio Calico), jump ring
