One Stamp Wonder!

My Stampin' Up order came on Friday afternoon and I finally got my hands on the new Medallion stamp. This background stamp (found on page 133 of the catalogue) is fabulous. I honestly think that if you're going to buy one stamp this year, this should be it. I made 10 cards in no time at all including birthday, thinking of you, wedding, thank you, just for you, etc. It is so versatile and looks great in any colour or style. Throw on a little ribbon, a brad and a sentiment and you have yourself a beautiful card in no time. I think I will do some cards up with this stamp for an upcoming kit of the month! This stamp has moved up to the top of my recommended list!

Cardstock: Eggplant, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Eggplant
Stamps: Medallion, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Embellishments: So Saffron Ribbon, Gold Brads, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch

Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Eggplant
Stamps: Medallion, On Your Birthday
Embellishment: Rhinestone

This stamp is fairly easy to use. I suggest practising first on some scrap paper just to get used to the feel of the stamp. In reality, no matter how the stamp hits the paper it turns out great. I tried stamping with ink and embossing it and it works great both ways.

This stamp is $23.95 (plus shipping and taxes) but is a very wise investment. If you would like to order the Medallion stamp, please e-mail me at
