I just love the Medallion Background stamp, that is in the Current Stampin Up Mini Catalogue. It makes cards so quick and easy.
The Medallion Stamp can even be used on a masculine card. Supplies: C/S Soft Suede, Vanilla. Ink Soft Suede, Basic Black. Stamp Sets Medallion, Sanded & Wonderful Favourites. Also a Jumbo brad in vanilla.
Now for a quick and easy christmas card, there is only 19 weeks left till christmas. Supplies: C/S Real Red, Whisper White. Ink Certainly Celery, Real Red. Ribbon Real Red. Gold Brads. The 1 3/4 circle punch fits the centre of the Medallion perfectly.
This card uses the emboss resist technique. The medallion image is clear embossed on Pink Pirouette C/S. I have then spritzed and sponged rose red and perfect plum over the image. Using a paper towel wipe off the excess ink from the embossed image. Wonderful.
