Every year at the Stampin’ Up! convention, they give us a ton of projects as Make & Takes. Some, I think are really cute while others are soooo not my style. But I have to say, this set of cards using the Daydream Medallions stamp set, from the first day of Make & Takes were some of my favorites!
We were making four 3×3 cards and using a coordinating wheel to decorate our envelopes. I thought these cards were a great way to show how you can mix and match the different medallion stamps to make totally different looks between your cards. That is one of those design ideals that I love playing around with but can take a while to really break out of the box and create new ideas (and speaking of boxes, don’t miss the box we decorated for the cards at the end of this post).
These first two cards, I shared with folks who attended my Convention Roundup event. Everyone seemed to have a good time making these cards to take home. I don’t know why, but I particularly love the bling in the pink stamped medallion ring in the “always” card!
Finally, we decorated one of the kraft boxes to be storage for our cards. Now, here is the ingenious thing…. the Daydream Medallions stamp set includes the solid circle rubber cut outs from the middle of the bigger circles. So, even though they aren’t “official” stamps listed on the box for the stamp set…. they are still stamps! So we used them and stamped with Versamark on the sides of the box to create this:
Alright, well I just spent this last weekend visiting Portland and participating in a 36 hour road rally/scavenger hunt that went non-stop throughout the weekend. So, I’m a bit beat! It was an amazing event with beautiful Oregon sceneries. Maybe I should create some scrapbook layouts with those pictures! But first, sleep! Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well and a scrappy, crafty Monday!
