Medallion "March Madness!"

I absolutely love-love-love the Make A Medallion stamp set, one of the newest Sale-A-Bration products you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase.  You can get this product until March 31 when you place an order of $50 (before shipping and tax).

This card was made with 5 Sale-A-Bration projects!  What do you think?

Here is a close-up of the card front:

And, the inside of the card:

Can you tell which Sale-A-Bration products were used to make this card?  Make A Medallion stamp set, Carried Away Designer Series Paper, Delicate Details stamp set, 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, and the 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack.

I love all the detail in these stamps, and I wanted to show you several different color combinations and how easy it is to create these beautiful images.

The first photo shows Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder in a tone-on-tone look.  The lighter shades are achieved by "stamping off" onto scrap paper and then stamping onto the Whisper White card stock.  

This color combination is Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Night of Navy.

Here is Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach, and Night of Navy.

Next, I played with Watermelon Wonder and Night of Navy.

And, then I just reversed the order and used Night of Navy first and Watermelon Wonder second.  It gives you a whole new look!

Then, I played with Night of Navy and Crumb Cake.

And, finally, I tried Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Mint Macaron.  Then, I used Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, and Mint Macaron.

I used the Layering Circles framelits to cut out the medallions and I used the scalloped framelits in this set to cut the layers behind the medallions.  

You can see that this set is lots of fun, and one you will just "have to have!"  So, click here to shop in my online store.  You can get Make A Medallion for FREE with your order of $50 or more.  But, hurry -- Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st!

Happy Stamping,


  1. I too like the medallion stamp but am having trouble getting a good "stamp" with the smaller or inside part. It does not stamp well unless I stamp up and push down a hard has I can to get a good image. Any hints on how I can do this without pushing down so hard? Thanks for helping me out...

  2. Hi, Vicki! Thanks for visiting my blog. Are you using the Stampin' Pierce mat under your paper when you are stamping with photopolymer stamps? I find this really helps get a good impression, and helps the ink transfer from stamp to paper. I use my Stampin' Pierce mat whenever I am using photopolymer stamps. The surface of your table may not be even, and the "cushioning" effect of the mat really helps. Let me know if you were already using this. If so, you may have a defective stamp. You should not have to push hard to get a good impression. You can talk to a customer service representative at Stampin' Up! by calling 1-800-STAMPUP. I hope this helps! Thanks!
