Many Medallions

Stampin Up Many Medallions

I needed to make a wedding card for someone and I found out their colors were very similar to some Stampin’ Up! colors so I decided to use them for the card.  I wished I had saved the photo of their wedding but now I can’t find it but just know they were Calpyso Coral, Petal Pink with a touch of Coastal Cabana.

To make this card I first cut out two pieces using the Many Medallions die set.  The first one was in Petal Pink and the second one in Coastal Cabana.  I adhered the Petal Pink one to a Calypso Coral card base and then glued the tiny pieces of Coastal Cabana in the slots.  First a disclaimer.  Do not try this at home.  Although I love how it turned out, it took a very, very long time to glue all those tiny pieces inside the medallion.  They are all not the same size which made it a bit harder.  My suggestion is to cut a piece of cardstock (I used Coastal Cabana) and adhere the large Petal Pink die cut over the top.  Luckily it was done on a rainy day so I had lots of time.

I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments using Coastal Cabana ink and cut it out using a Stitched Nested Labels Die.  Then I punched out a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Everyday Label Die and adhered them together.

I did get a lovely thank you card from the happy couple who said they loved the card so all that work was definitely worth it.

Only Two More Days For The DSP Special

There are only two more days to get this fantastic deal on Designer Series Paper.  If you buy three packages of select designs you can get one for free!  That is $11 off!

I love Designer Series Paper (for the rest of this post I will call it DSP because it is just too long to type out!).  It is the best way to make a quick and easy card that looks great too!  To make this card, I just cut two pieces of DSP from the Best Route pack, adhered it to a piece of Mango Melody cardstock and adhered that to a 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock folded in half.  Then I just stamped the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and cut it out using the Everyday Label Punch.  I think this would make a great masculine card the way it is or you can add a flowers or some sequins to make it more feminine.

These are the DSP paper packs that are eligible for this Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion.

Painted Harvest

This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  This card uses a few new products that are in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Do you have a copy of this catalog yet?  If not you can pick one up for free from me!

The first set we used is called Painted Harvest.  This set has a matching punch called Leaf Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I didn’t use the leaf punch for this card but you definitely should get it.  There have been so many times I wish we had a leaf punch and now we do!

The second new stamp set we used is called Labels to Love.  This set also matches a brand new punch called Everyday Label Punch.  Although this punch matches the stamp set there is no Bundle for it BUT the Everyday Label Punch matches a different stamp set in the catalog called Merry Little Labels.  If you buy those in a Bundle you can save 10%. I think it is great that there are two stamp sets to match one punch.  It makes the punch that much more versatile!
