I am totally loving this Medallion, and have to play with it again. I followed this sketch challenge, but used my own color combo... yes, it's Rich Razzleberry again!
I stamped the Medallion in the craft Very Vanilla to create the background, added Le Jardin's flower and accented with Dazzling Diamonds (though not easy to see in the picture). And, of course, had to finish everything off with a Rhinestone Brad (love them).
Hope it inspires you to do some stamping on this humid, stormy day.

When I saw the Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge this week, I had to give it a go, especially since Rex (our new puppy) has been keeping us plenty busy with even less time to stamp... gasp! What better stamp to use than the Medallion to create a quick and easy card?
To make the blurred colors on the Medallion, I inked the Medallion stamp in Apricot Appeal and sponged with Pixie Pink. To complete the color challenge here, I also added Certainly Celery.
Do you need ideas for those little scraps of paper? Don't forget to check the deal of the week. It is the last deal of the week and it's a good one! I love this heart punch! The hearts come in 3 different, cute shapes - use 1 or use them all. I love the tiny heart (used in this card) or in this card, or in this card.

This baby card was commissioned by DH for a co-worker. Hope the new mom likes it!
Yes, it's another daisy card! Can this daisy be any more beautiful? If you have not guessed, I am quite addicted to it - seems to give every card that special punch. Speaking of punch, how about that Rich Razzleberry color? Definitely a fav!

Well, I knew I could... Now, I've done it! I made the daisy from fabric and freezer paper - so cool! The next time you get those Sizzix dies out, try them with fabric. There's a wonderful challenge here with a simple tutorial. I would love to see what you come up with... Go have some fun!

I am lovin' this Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. I would have never put these colors together on my own - but this paper is inspiring and fantastic! The Big Shot & Sizzix tools (i.e. the Daisy) has added such a dimension to stamping.

Welcome to my first post on my newly launched stamping blog. I hope you find inspiration as you take your creative journey... or holiday. Don't forget to bring along your stamps, ink and paper as you come along.
So, I just ordered these new In Colors by Stampin' Up! They are so vivid - not quite what I'm used to, but I love the summer feel they bring.
