World Treasures

I wanted to use the World Treasures stamp set, which I've owned for months, but which never saw ink until I was done with Christmas.

The base is Whisper White, with a mat of Pacific Point.  The top layer is another piece of Whisper White, which was first punched with the Ornament Punch (because upside down, it is the shape of an urn), then backed with a piece of International Bazaar Designer Paper.  The stems and leaves were stamped on the white, then using Stamp-a-Majig, all three flowers were added.

Using the Big Shot and the Vine Street Embossing Folder from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog, I embossed the white piece, with the images stamped on it.

Then, a second of each of the two larger flowers were stamped and punched out with the 1" Circle Punch.  I made tiny snips into each of those flowers toward the center and all the way around to give them some dimension, then added with brads.  

Across the bottom (and to hide the pointy end of the "urn", I added a strip of different International Bazaar DSP, matted with a strip of Rich Razzleberry.

A little bow of Indigo Island Baker's Twine was made, with a Tiny Tag and adhered with a Glue Dot to the top of the "urn."  I can't imagine an occasion where this wouldn't be appropriate!

Thanks for looking,
Carole
