I am using the Day of Gratitude (W120835  C121148) stamp set for one of my make & take projects this month.  I love the large medallion stamp and thought a multicolored image would look really neat!  I used sponge daubers to ink my stamp with Old Olive, Cajun Craze and More Mustard.  I stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut it out. 

I created two versions of the card and would love for you to leave me a comment letting me know which one you like better. :-)  I will pick a random comment on Thursday and that person will win their favorite.

This version is certainly the simplest.  To save time, you wouldn't have to cut out the image, you could simply stamp it, add a Basic Pearl Jewel to the center of the medallion and your greeting and it would be done. Dayfogratitude

Although I am a big fan of simple, this next card is a step up and I love it too!!  I added a strip of Cajun Craze that I ran through my Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder and added a ribbon slide from the Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware Kit Vanillahodgepodge to the center instead of the pearl.

  1. Great cards Barb!
    I like the one you cut out better. I’m lazy but I always like the 3D effect. Although, I like the pearl center better than the ribbon. I guess I like shiny things. 🙂

  2. I like the one the simple one. I actually like the other one too but liked the pearl center and that is what pushed me over to that card.

  3. I like the simple one out of these 2 cards. I liked the pearl center better than the ribbon in the center. So if you had a card like the simple one, but added the Cajun Craze and the wide ribbon at the top, that would really be my favorite.

  4. Hi Barb! I love the second one the best. I love the ribbon and the texture. I think it makes it POP. I also think a pearl in the xenter would look very pretty too. You did a beautiful job. I love the set too.

  5. I love them both! I think it would depend upon who you are sending the card to. There are some of us who prefer clean and simple (number 1) and there are others who like to step things up a little bit (number 2). Both cards are lovely!

  8. I love them both, but the pop of Cajun Craze makes me crazy for it! That little addition makes the colors jump right off the card. NICE job! Love the dauber idea too btw

  9. I love the second selection with the embossed piece and the ribbon much better than the first one.

  10. I like both of them. They are beautiful but I do like the first one a little bit better. I’m a clean and simple creator so this one appeals a lot more. Great designs!

  11. I really like both cards, but I like the first one the best. I’m for simple and easy to reproduce ! Great use of the direct ink to stamp technique.

  12. I like the one with the embossed panel. I usually like the simplest of designs but this time I think the medallion needed something to help it stand out.

  13. I choose the second card, because I like the embossed strip and ribbon accent, but I like the pearl center better. A combination of the 2 would be just perfect!! 😉

  14. Have to say my first choice would be the simplest card (#1), but the other one is not a throw-away. Feel the medallion stands out with the three beautiful color choices and the pearl in the center.

  15. I love them both! If I were choosing to make one it would be the first because I would be more comfortable with it; but the second really catches the eye. Great work; thanks for sharing. MJ

  16. The second card pops more for me. However when I went to make it my framelits don’t fit the stamp. Did you cut this out? It looks so perfect!
