New Goodies!! Medallion BG Stamp

Hi Everyone! Let me start first by apologizing for being away so long. I've had some great workshops that have kept me very busy and we have really been gearing up for the next Royal Blog Tour on July 27th, 28th and 29th. You will want to mark this on your calendar, there will be 4 tours of 20 blogs in each tour and it will primarily be NEW PRODUCT showcased from the new Stampin' Up catalog. I can't give away any secrets but there will be some exciting surprises in store for our ROYAL travelers! You will want to check out this blog for all the details -http://www.royalblogtour.blogspot.com/ and for some very fun interviews with some of the stampers whose blogs you will be visiting during the tour, including our featured Stampers who are really quite famous out there in our little stamping world! :)

Now on to the cards I made for you using some of my NEW stuff!!! YEAH! These are all made using the NEW In Color's for 2009/2010 and the FABULOUS new background stamp called Medallion. This stamp is simply beautiful and a must have I think for your stamp collection. Look how simple these cards are just focusing on that stamp. No kidding this 4 cards took a total of 45 minutes to make and I didn't have a clue what I was going to do when I set down to work. So that time includes design. You really are going to want to get this stamp for your own!

There are no special techniques or anything on these cards so I'll just give you the products used and I think you won't have any trouble figuring out what I did. If you do though don't hesitate to ask!

Card Ingredients:
  • Stamp Set: Medallion #115223 and Thoughts & Prayers #113252
  • Card Stock: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede
  • Classic Ink: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede
  • Accessories: Brads (regular & rhinestone), Wide Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Crop-a-dile, In Color Markers, Crushed Curry & Soft Suede Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercing Tool and Crushed Curry DSP

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the new products, I'll be featuring something new for each post for awhile, saving one set to show you during the Blog Tour.

Be sure to check out the link above to find out about the Tour!

Also, SU has the WONDERFUL new Demo special starting on July 15th, I have all the details in the post below, be sure to check that out and if you have EVER considered giving SU a try this is certainly the time to do it. So let me know if I can help!

See you soon!

Diane, CUTE cards!!! I guess I am already regretting that I didn't order this set with my first box of goodies! But it will be on my next order! And would it be ok with you if I linked to your blog to share the card with my viewers? I am without a wireless connection while visiting my parents for almost a whole month (yes, I am dying!!!) and therefore have no way to share photos so I am trying to link to cool new stuff.

BTW, yes...that Rodney pup? very adorable! Jan Hoyt inkerzaway@aol.com
