My Medallion Creation

by ktstamps, 3:44 PM

I fell in love with the Medallion background stamp when I first saw the new catalog. Putting in my first order, I forgot to order it. (I just wanted sooo much and my list was sooo big!) So, I had to wait a month to make my next order. It has been a long wait.

I have seen some great cards made with this stamp set.

I decided I wanted to play with the new Shimmer paint from the Holiday mini caddie coming out September 1st.

Here is how I created my card.

  1. I took the top off one of the plastic stamp container to mix my colors

  1. I added one drop of the Platinum Shimmer Paint and 2-3 drops of Brilliant Blue refill ink.

  1. I used my brayer to mix the colors together.

  1. I then brayered the ink mixture onto the Medallion stamp and stamped the design on Whisper White card stock.

  1. Stamp the saying from All Holiday with Brilliant Blue Craft ink. I used Clear embossing powder to have it stand out.

  1. I popped out the light blue rhinestone from the Circle Ice brads and added it to the center of the medallion.

  1. I assembled the card. (Whisper white, Brushed Silver, and the Brilliant Blue card stock.)

I really enjoyed the way the card turned out. The Shimmer paint toned down the brightness of the Blue.

I would love to do a workshop for you and your friends. This is a great way to learn new techniques, learn about Stampin' Up! and create some great cards. Please email or place on-line order with me.

Thank you for stopping by!
