The Stamp Review Crew: Daydream Medallions Edition

Welcome back for another round of inspiration from the Stamp Review Crew This week we are featuring Daydream Medallions. I am #12 on the hop. You may have just left stop #11: the incredibly talented Shana Gaff.  If so, you are in the right spot. 

I agreed to create a Christmas card using this set, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. And what about this awesome paper?  It’s from the new Holiday Catalog, which goes live August 28th.  I hope you enjoy today’s hop!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 5″ by 5″.

  • Emboss! Each medallion was heat embossed with either Pool Party or Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The silver embossing is shiny in person, and looks fabulous with the Brushed Silver mat. The end result looks so elegant.
  • Bling! A single Rhinestone adds a touch of sparkle.  It was the perfect accent for the Lost Lagoon image atop the stack of medallions.
  • Greetings! The Season’s Greetings sentiment, from the Watercolor Winter Too stamp set, was inked in Lost Lagoon to coordinate with the gorgeous All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Both the stamp set and paper are from the Holiday Catalog. It was then snipped out.  Although I am addicted to snipping, I rarely snip out sentiments.  However, I like the effect on this card.

    I hope you enjoyed today’s Daydream Medallions card.  Won’t you let me know in your comment?
