Now, one of my all time favourite stamps and one I've used many, many times since I got it, is the beautiful medallion stamp from Stampin' Up! So I decided to use the stamp again - and I made two cards!!
The first card is a thank you card to everyone for all the kind and caring comments left for me and my family following my sister's sudden death recently.
I decided to use green for a fresh, bright and hopeful feel. The base card is slightly textured giving a subtle pattern to the image.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Medallion; Waltzingmouse - Rescue Remedies Additions
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Fresh Greens
The second card is slightly smaller, but still square, and is pearly white. And this can be used for any occasion, but I have a friend in mind!! I really like the soft pastel colours on this card.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Medallion; Waltzingmouse - Roses in Bloom
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Pastel
And to show you just how much I like the medallion stamp - here are a few of the Christmas cards I made with it in 2009!
|Medallion stamp (SU) - Snowmen and greeting - Elusive Images|
|Medallion (SU) - Acetate stripe (not sure where I got this one)|
|Medallion (SU) on to which I layered a Kanban topper|
I made quite a few more - but I think this is enough to be going on with. Hopefully, I'll be able to get around all the cards on last week's challenge and this week - but as there are so many - it may take a while :) I'm beginning to get back to my craft room, so hopefully I'll have another card to share with you tomorrow! Bye for now.
