Rubber stamping, scrapbooking, card-making and other paper crafts

October 6, 2009

Here are some more ideas using this wonderful MEDALLION Background Stamp. I just can't seem to get enough of it! This time I used In-Color Melon Mambo, a wonderful, bright pink (which is my favorite color!), but I "stamped off" to get a lighter image. "Stamping off" is a technique that is easy to learn and has many applications.

This detail includes some Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. All the In-Colors have matching Polka Dot Ribbon. I used a Filigree Brad anchored with a white brad from the 5/16" Neutrals Assortment Brads.

Here are another couple of samples using the "Stamping Off" technique and matching card stock and ink pad. The Eyelet Border Punch gives a nice bright white border to the sentiment, don't you think? Both cards were embossed using White Embossing Powder.

On this last card, I added some butterflies from the FLIGHT OF THE BUTTERFLY Stamp Set. I love the Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon against the soft color of Sahara Sand on the card base. I also stamped two butterflies onto Vellum Card Stock to adhere on top of the card stock butterflies for a nice 3-dimensional look.

So there you have it. I think this is the end of my MEDALLION card samples. Next time, I'll try something different!
