Pendant Note AND Medallion Stamp... oh my!!

I love the 'flourishy' style of the Pendant Notes (see gushy previous post), and the huge Medallion Stamp in the new Mini catalogue.

After I shared my first couple of Pendant Notes with you, I challenged myself to make a card WITHOUT using Rich Razzleberry.  It's very easy to get caught up in the excitement of the new "in colours", to the detriment of the tried-and-true favourites.  So, back to the reliable old red/brown/kraft combo!  This is what I came up with (I love it - don't you??):

Pendant Note - red, brown

Stamps: En Francais, Pocket Silhouettes, Vintage Vogue

Card: Kraft, Very Vanilla

DSP: Candy Lane Designer Series Paper

Ink: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red stampin' pads

Other: Word Window Punch, Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Very Vanilla 5/16" jumbo brad, sponge daubers

It has now been a few days (in fact, I think I've generously allowed over a week!) since I shared a card made with my favourite Medallion stamp.  Here is the card my lucky husband (LOL) received for our recent wedding anniversary.

Saffron, gray Medallion card

Stamps: En Francais, Medallion, Life Definitions

Card: Basic Gray, Going Gray, Confetti White

Ink: Going Gray, Basic Gray and So Saffron stampin' pads, Going Gray marker

Other: Edge distresser, sponge daubers, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, 5/8" Jumbo brad

I'll be back with more after my Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue launch tomorrow!  Really looking forward to sharing a few hours with stamping friends, and getting everyone excited about all the gorgeous new products.

  3. Love love love these cards .... but ... I was sat working on my half of the pack last night and we've made almost the same card - lol how weird is that :o) Have a super day lovely friend.

  4. Wow, two posts in such quick succession, I didn't have time to see the first before the second appeared. Well I love them all be they brown/kraft (or should I say cookie crumbs or something like that) or razzleberry.
