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.

VIDEO - 40 Cards using the Balloon Adventures Bundle

I have a video for you today where I show you 40 cards that use the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  I do a little talking about each one so it isn't a short video. :-) 

All the cards use the Balloon Adventures Bundle and you can click on the items to purchase them in my store.

There is a nice selection of items and I think that most of the stamp set images and the dies are used on at least one card. This was a fun video to shoot as I got to really look at each card and I learned some really cool things.

*Using the vest trace both flaps onto Urban Underground DSP, cut them out and attach to the vest flaps. Trim any excess.

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!

VIDEO - Puzzle Piecing with That's the Tag Bundle

Thats_the_tag_bundleI am having a blast with the That's the Tag Bundle.  It is on page 23 of the Occasions Catalog and the bundle includes the That's the Tag stamp set in photopolymer and the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies.

My video today will show you how to do the Puzzle Piecing Technique.  I also use the Lift Me Up Framelits and if you are wondering how to create the Lattice Work pattern along the fold, you can find a video and printable template in THIS BLOG POST.
