My first card uses the medallion with three different coloured embossing powders and a simple Thank you sentiment.

My second card uses the medallion again with embossing powder (white) but this time stamped after I had coloured and masked the rosebud from Love Remains.  The sponging was done with Old Paper Distress Ink and I also stamped Cracked Hello over my sponging.  My last touch was the little embossed pieces made using Spellbinders dies.

Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.


  1. Your medallion cards are beautiful!

  2. I love both of your cards Janine and the technique are superb! I like the way you have a bold card and then a delicate one using the same stamp....simply brilliant! TFS!

  3. I too like both of your cards, but I like the 1st one with the great colours the most.

  4. Both cards turned out so nice...same stamped image but two great looking cards..well done

  5. Beautiful cards. Such different designs using the medallion. I love that masked rose with the medallion in white - gorgeous!

  6. my first reaction to the first card when I saw it was, "Oooooo! I LIKE IT!" second card is beautifully done.

  7. Beautiful cards. The second is my fav with the pretty rose.

  8. Wonderful. I can se that this stamp is quite versatile. Yours looks like a doily/ Lovely!

  9. Wow very pretty cards that you made
    And a very pretty stamp set

  10. Two pretty cards. I especially like the second one with the rose backed with the white "doily." (BTW, I remember that acetate/glitter technique too! I might still have a piece of acetate in my craft room with some glitter glued to the back.)

  11. Love that first card. Awesome.

  12. I like how you used this medallion stamp.

  13. Beautiful cards; the second one is my favorite. Stunning embossed and stamped in white.

  14. Lovely cards...especially the second card!
