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.

Although participating in our Challenge does not require you to used Sweet Stamps.com, but we would LOVE for you to try the stamps out.

If you head over to http://sweetstampsblog.blogspot.com/ you will see all the rules to enter the challenge.

1 lucky person per week will win a $20 gift certificate to the SWEET STAMPS.COM store!

You can’t possibly pass on that, right?

I hope you have enjoyed my card today, hopefully you will have a chance to try these SWEET STAMPS yourself!

Have a great rest of the week!

This was so much fun.  I made 3 things for them and I can’t wait to post pics of those projects.  Working with PK GLITZ and their products help me go beyond my comfort zone.  I played around a LOT with glitter and got comfortable with using it!  I also learned how enticing glitter and glitter SPOONS are to little kids!  I think they had as much fun playing with the PK GLITZ products as I did!  Until you can see my projects, enjoy the PK GLITZ products in the hands of my children!


Be sure to check back when I SHOW OFF my projects for PK GLITZ!!!  I can post on August 18th, but I will have some other things to post in the meantime!  So,  TA TA FOR NOW!!

PK Glitz Projects

21 Jun

I am entering a contest of sorts to try to be a guest designer for a FUN company called – PK GLITZ, INC.

Here is a link to the Challenge:  P K Glitz, Inc.

They required 2 entries.  A scrapbook page and a card.  We were to follow the sketch they gave and interpret it as our own, putting some GLITZ on the page or using one of their products as part of the design.  I only own glitter, so that is what I used.  Here are my entries:
