Make a Medallion

Make a Medallion, Glimmer Paper, #makeamedallion, #glimmerpaper, #saleabration, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #handstampedcard, #rubberstamping, #staminupdemoDo you believe in the value of the photopolymer stamps?  The new Sale-a-Bration stamp set - Make a Medallion is photopolymer.  I decided to try layering the 2 medallions and was ecstatic to see that they layered PERFECTLY!   Wow!  No stamp a ma jig needed!  I could see through the photopolymer so easily that I lined up the stamps with ease!  Better yet. . . . I love the look!

I used Bermuda Bay and Dapper Denim as the main colors.  It was my first time using them together and I was surprised at how nicely they worked together.  What do you think of this color combination?   Isn't it perfect that the medallion fits into the Layering Circles framelits so well?  And of course the perfect accent is a little strip of glimmer paper. 

What do you think of this stamp set and this combination?

Check out this super adorable baby card!  Imagine it as an Easter card too!  It uses the Basket Bunch stamp set with a greeting from That's the Tag stamp set.  You are going to LOVE how I created the background!  But, first check out these cute little bunnies!

Basket Bunch, Baby card, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampingtechniques, #stampinupvideo, #babycard, #watercolorpencils, #stampinupdemonstrator, #stampinupdemo,

I colored these bunnies with the watercolor pencils and the Pink Pirouette Stampin Write marker.  Let me tell you about the amazing watercolor pencils!

  • so blendable!  they are sooo soft and so easily blendable with a Blender Pen or AquaPainter
  • 13 high quality pencils in Stampin' Up! colors!  create various shades of the colors depending on how much pencil you apply.
  • they are obviously so fabulous that they are selling out.  Currently they are available but, shortly they will be un order able until another shipment comes in.  Get yours while you can!  #141709

So, check out the details on how to make this background!  

 

 I hope you give this technique a try!  Post your creations for us all to see!  Now, hop on to the next blog for more color inspiration!

Speaking of Lovely As a Tree, this card makes a perfect masculine sympathy card.   Simple layout that would be very plain if it wasn't for the Urban Underground designer series paper in the background.

I hear frequently how difficult masculine cards are to make.  For some reason, we just don't have quite as much inspiration for them as we do for flower or other "fun" cards.  Well, Masculine cards can be fun too!  Seriously!  Let me get you started. . . I can put together a packet for you with this sketches to get you going!  

I primarily used the Nailed It stamp set bundled with the Build It framelits along with the Urban Underground designer series paper.  BUT, in the class I have suggestions for other stamp sets that will work very well too!  How about Lovely As a Tree, Guy Greetings and ?  All of these ideas included in the tutorial so you can customize your masculine cards to suite your personal needs.

Here's one of my favorites!
