Do you remember I posted an adorable project awhile back called a "Romantic Hearts Medallion"? You can view that post HERE if you don't remember.
Anyway, I had a few friends over for a stamp night and one of the projects everyone made was a medallion. They were all different and turned out so cute! Each medallion was made with a different style of Designer Series Papers. By the way, you know that the retiring accessories list will be out soon, right? ALL of this year's DSP will almost certainly be retired. So if you have been wanting to get some, order it NOW before it's gone. Once the accessories list comes out, things start selling out fast!
This was Judy S.'s medallion made with the Twitterpated DSP (from the Occasions Mini Catalog). The butterfly is cut from White Vellum cardstock with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.
Here is Donna M's medallion. She used the Big Top Birthday DSP and the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set for the sucker on top (although I wouldn't recommend licking it - it is just made from card stock).
Pam E. made this one with the Beyond the Garden DSP. The saying she and Judy used is from Field Flowers.
The last one I made for my daughter with the Flirtatious Specialty DSP. The owl in the center is made with the Owl Builder Punch and 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. She loved it! ~~ It's an owl and it's pink, so I was pretty sure she would.
The pattern for these medallions came from the Inkspirations4U stamp group - it's a terrific place to get some wonderful patterns for cards, 3D items, and lots more. I have a bunch of things I want to make - I just need to find some time to do it! (You don't have that problem, do you?)
We're heading into a busy week with orchestra rehearsals every evening this week and then shows Thursday through Friday. We are playing in the pit for Fiddler on the Roof. Hopefully I'll have time during the day to post. I'll just have to see how the week shakes out. Until next time...
