Sweet Stamps.com Medallion Challenge

24 May

What’s a medallion you say?  A medallion is an ornament, medal, etc used in design.  Sweet Stamps.com has some gorgeous MEDALLION STAMPS.

Today I am using the stamps called:

FOUR HEART MEDALLION

FRIEND #9094B

There are many different techniques that would be fun to try using these MEDALLION stamps.

I chose to use lots of glitter to really make my card sparkle.

I started by stamping the MEDALLION with a pigment Silver pad and embossing it with Clear Embossing powder.

After I embossing, I started in the center and worked my way out applying glitter with a glue pen and

a dimensional glue.

After my glitter was done, I used a clear embossing pen to emboss everywhere I did not use glitter.

You can see here, the whole card is shiny and it is because I have either used glitter or a clear emboss on the whole stamped image.

To make this card extra special, I used some decorative pins and glass beads.

I love using glass beads on cards and using the jump rings to apply the beads adds a fun touch.

The MEDALLION stamp is quite large so I used a small simple word phrase to complete the card.

The new challenge is up at Sweet Stamps.com blog.

If you like to stamp, I would love for you to try Sweet Stamps.com out.

They are reasonably prices and I have been very impressed with the clear stamped image they produce and the fine detail in many of the stamps that I own.
