Shimmery Medallion

Stampin Up Medallion

Did you know that the Stampin’ Up! Medallion stamp is one of the best selling stamps in the current catalogue? Have you ordered your Medallion stamp yet? Do it today!

For this card, I inked up the Medallion with Sahara Sand ink and then sponged Not Quite Navy ink around the outside with a dauber. Using a second dauber, I sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint around the edge of the Not Quite Navy ink and stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. 

Then I inked the Medallion again with Not Quite Navy in the middle and sponged Champagne Mist on top. This was punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch and I used dimensionals to add height. The very center piece was sponged with Champagne Mist using the ink that was already on the dauber for a fainter colour. I punched this with the 3/4" circle punch and added a flat pearl in the center.

To finish the card, I glued the Shimmery Wite cardstock onto a slightly larger piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and punched with the Horizontal Slot punch. Two layers of ribbon are threaded through and adhered on the back. Then, I used a large flat pearl to cover the hole from the punch. This piece was mounted onto Not Quite Navy cardstock.

    Breathtaking Dar!

    And with Medallion as the number one stamp and Shimmer paints poised to be the number one accessory I guess it proves the point another demonstrator made the other day on Stampin’ discuss…..

    “I think all stampers are magpies at heart and shimmer, glitter and bling usually sell.”

    Count me in the magpie brigade and thanks for making things shimmer and sparkle for us all.

    Hugs – Jean
