9 Days left to Sale-a-brate! Make a Medallion

On my, we only have nine days left to Sale-a-brate.   So here are a couple of ideas that use the Make a Medallion stamp set.  It may seem hard to line up the large images but I have a VIDEO HERE that makes it super easy.

My friend Judy created this awesome card using one of my favorite colors, Emerald Envy!

Medallion
Measurements:
Emerald Envy - 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”, scrap for scallop circle
Dapper Denim – 1 ½” x 4 ¾”
Whisper White – 5 ¼” x 4” (inside), 5” x 3 ¾” (card front), 2 ¾” square for stamping medallion

Instructions:
Stamp the most rounded of the medallion stamps with Dapper Denim then, lining it up as shown, stamp the pointier medallion over it with Emerald Envy ink.
Stamp the sentiment in Dapper Denim and die cut with appropriate size Layering Circles Framelit.
Cut the next size scallop circle from Emerald Envy cardstock to layer under stamped medallion.
Run the 5” x 3 ¾” Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot in the Lovely Lace embossing folder.
Punch the strip of Dapper Denim with the Banner Triple punch then adhere ribbon across the middle.
Layer the embossed Whisper White to the card front. Adhere the banner with multipurpose liquid glue as shown. Add dimensionals to the medallion piece then adhere to card as shown.
Finish by adding blank Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card to write personal message.

Supplies:

_______________________________________________________________
My friend Jodi created this card using my other favorite color, Mint Macaron!!
Medallion_JR

Measurements:
Mint Macaron: 8.5” x 5.5”
Night of Navy: 3.25” x 3.25”
Whisper White: 3” x 3”, 5.5” x 2”

Instructions:
Attach the Whisper White layer across the front of the Mint Macaron card base.
Run the SNAIL adhesive down the center of the Whisper White layer and set the ribbon onto the adhesive. Trim ends as necessary.
Use the 3” Circle Framelit to cut a circle from the Night of Navy square and attach it to the card.
Using Night of Navy ink, stamp the larger stamp with less detail onto the Whisper White square.
Using Mint Macaron ink, stamp the more detailed image directly on top of the first one.
Using Watermelon Wonder ink, stamp the flourish on the top half of the circle. Re-ink and repeat for the bottom half.
Using Night of Navy ink, stamp the greeting.
Attach this circle to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Add a silver Enamel Shape right above the word FRIEND.

*Using the Envelope Punch Board punch and score the Basic Black cardstock at the 3- 3/8” mark
*Turn the cardstock, line up with the score line punch and score again, continue to do that on all remaining sides.
*Cut off two smaller sides and fold the remaining two flaps in, this will form the vest.
*Using the vest trace both flaps onto Urban Underground DSP, cut them out and attach to the vest flaps. Trim any excess.
*Fold flaps in and adhere them together, be careful to only apply adhesive on the pointed part of one flap so there is no excess glue.
Shirt
*Snip Whisper White about 3/4“ from top on both sides about 1” in
*Fold flaps at a slight angle to create collar, secure with Dimensionals
*Slide Whisper White inside of vest and mark with a pencil at the “v”. Remove it and stamp your greeting.

*Crop one of the bow middle strips from Basic Black, attach it to the bow end, trim the excess and then adhere it to the front of the vest.
*Add the nut head embellishment to the vest as a button.
This card is a bit large to fit in a standard A2 envelope but you can create one from a sheet of the DSP. Use the envelope punch board and the measurements for an A6 card – 4 1/2” x 6 1/2”

Make A Medallion (Photopolymer)

Balloon Pop Up Wiper Card, how much fun does this sound?  It is tons of fun and super easy too.  Check out my video to see how much fun this interactive card is.  It is also simple to create a Wiper Card so that makes it even more fun!  AND when you add pop up balloons in Glimmer Paper, it's even better!!  Here's the first Wiper Card I made.  I made it for a swap and the gals loved it.
This first picture is of it closed.  It's cute but nothing special.....scroll down to the next photo.

Wiper_front
Here it is with the balloons coming out of the top.  The card acts like windshield wipers.  up, down, up, down, up, down, they are so so cool!!!
Wiper_front_open
Here's a closeup of the balloons, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and cropped balloons from Watermelon Wonder (Heads up, this is one of the colors that will be retiring at the end of May with the current catalog.), Pool Party and coordinating bows, one out of Peekaboo Peach.
Wiper_balloons

The polka dot papers are from the 2015-2017 and 2016-2018 In Color Paper Stacks and check out the little strip of Pool Party in the center section.  I stamped it a few times with the Happy Birthday stamp in the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

VIDEO - Pocket Full of Tools - Nailed It Bundle

Working on some ideas for some swaps for this bundle and here is one I came up with.  This is also one of the projects that my Be a Big Shot at Home gals received supplies for in their February packets.  It uses the Nailed It Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  This is such a cool set, I love all the little tools and of course, who doesn't love coordinating dies!!!

My card is a Pocket Full of Tools and I have a video below showing you how I made it.  I used Silver Foil Sheets with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and it is so shiny!

Reverse_words_coral
Since the images in the Reverse Words set are big and bold, I decided to use one of our Ombre Stampin' Pads on this card.  You can create amazing ink effects with Ombre Stampin' Pads. These pads are designed with five shade gradations so you have dark ink on one end fading to light on the other for an ombre look.

I created my card in the landscape orientation but you could always turn it and create it in the portrait orientation.
