Medallion Background Stamp

Hey!!

Just wanted to stop in to showcase one of Stampin' Up!'s FABULOUS Background stamps, Medallion. This stamp was actually the most purchased stamp last year. :) I though I would never buy background stamps. This was my first and now I buy them all the time! Get yours 20% by e-mailing your order to me! trey.sims@comcast.net

This card is actually using some retired items, and I have not gotten around to remake it yet...
The base is Bermuda Bay 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". I inked the Jolly wheel in Bermuda Bay ink and rolled it across the entire card front. I used Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, and the heat tool to emboss the medallion and peace(non-SU!). Then, you can use either your 1/16" handheld punch or paper piecer to punch a whole for the cord. Sadly, SU! has stopped carry elastic cord :( It has always been a favorite of mine.
Have a great day!!!!

Christ is Born

Hello! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! This set has been on my wishlist for over a year and finally bought it a couple of weeks ago! Here is one of the cards I made.

The base card is Whisper White. I stamped the poinsetta in Cherry Cobbler on a 2 1/4" square. I wrapped Gold Cord (no longer available through SU!) around it 3 times and tied a knot. This was layered on a Real Red 2 1/2" square. I distress a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and sponged the edges with Wild Wasabi. Christ is Born was stamped in Versamark.

TIP: Using Craft and rubber scissors, separate the "Christ is Born" from the Psalms 96:11 to get more 'mileage' out of your stamp.

Psalm 96:11 was stamped in early espresso.

Don't forget to take advantage of my 20% discount on all purchases by e-mailing me your order.
Have a Great Weekend!
