Today I am using the Big Vases dies and this set consists of 3 standalone dies that you could use with the Twiggy Florets stamp set. I used 2 of the dies and cut out the vases on a piece of white cardstock. I stamped a long flower on piece of scrap cardstock and using the tallest vase die, I cut out the vase partially so that I could cut out the flower separately.

Paper Smooches - Big Vases

It’s amazing what can be done with just a stamp, dies, copics and a black inkpad!

Thanks for stopping by!
