I'd been posting swap cards from Founder's Circle in a very random format. Today, thanks to a conversation I had with a new customer who ordered Medallion (pg. 133 of the IB&C) from me, I had an idea to share all the cards I have using this gorgeous image. The first few photos are from fellow demonstrators from Founder's Circle. The final three are my interpretations. I had a ball and made about 20 variations of my cards with a variety of embellishments all in our Idea Book & Catalog): Basic Jumbo Grommets (pg. 179), Rhinestone Brads (pg. 179), Flower Fusion (pg. 180) and various ribbons (pg. 182).
As of a few weeks ago, Medallion was our #1 selling stamp. Can you see why? To Order Medallion 24/7 click here
From my uppity-upline, Jill Olsen. The real thing sparkles like you would not believe! I photographed it in its cello envelope. I think that affected its luster.
From the creative mind of Leasa Williams. Black is my fav color – my bridesmaids wore black satin, floor-length gowns 23 years ago (and, no, they likely never wore the dresses again, LOL). I love this card!
I love that Jessie Benjamin stamped Medallion over the other background stamp Sanded (pg. 134 of the IB&C).
And after seeing all those, here are my versions. On this first one, I love how such a simple step impacted the image. I inked the stamp with Crushed Curry then sort of randomly applied my Dusty Durango ink pad over that then stamped. It created a two-tone effect of color which I love.
I made at least double the cards shown below but I wanted to give you an idea how just sitting down with one same layout and various embellishments (as discussed above) can offer little tweaks to make many different cards.
