Medallion Cards

At the Stampin' Up! Convention earlier this month, it was announced that the current number one selling stamp is the Medallion! It is such a beautiful stamp I can understand why; I couldn't wait to get it myself! I saw quite a few swaps and samples with it at convention! I just wish I could have traded for more of them! lol! Turns out it is also a much more versatile stamp that one might think at first glance.

Today's cards are two swaps that I received at convention in organized swaps with two different groups and they are beauties.

The first card was from the Ink the Beginning group swap and was made by Cheryl Holtman. She used Basic Gray, Basic Black, Sage Shadow and the elegant Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper. She embossed the Medallion in black which gives it a shiny surface and a bold presence.A touch of Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon and a black brad are the final touches! Gorgeous, Cheryl!

The second card is from the SSUS group swap and made by Amy LaSpisa. It is yummy in tones of Chocolate Chip and Melon Mambo! Again the Medallion image was embossed, this time in Chocolate Chip. A touch of chocolate eyelet peeks out from underneath the polka dot Melon Mambo ribbon. Oo-la-la! A pearl from the Pretties Kit and a Happy Anniversary sentiment with the Modern Label punch complete it. Stunning card, Amy!

There are only a few more days left in the $85 Mini Starter Kit offer from Stampin' Up! This is a totally low-risk way to start your own business to earn extra money or at least pay for your stampin' habit, whichever is your goal. Contact me as soon as possible with any questions; the offer ends Monday, August 31st! I'd love for you to join my team too! Go to my website and click on "Start Your Own Business" for more information about the opportunity and benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

Thanks for visiting today! Hope to see you soon!

Actually I can't take any credit for this pink and brown card other than swapping with Amy LaSpisa, the creator! I'm so glad Amy was in our swap...this card is beautiful!!
