Southwestern Medallion


Good Morning Everyone!

I’m actually in Phoenix for Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference. I didn’t want to miss the Stamping 411 challenge, so I posted this early. So here we go…….

Here is the Sketch:



I haven’t used this Stamp a lot and not sure why….I think I’ve just been buried in Christmas for months now!!! So anyhow I thought I’d pull it out and see what I could do with it.

I spotted a necklace I liked last night at a Vendor Fair that inspired me to do these colors. …and my interpretation….. Kind of Turquoise and Coral, don’t you think?

Sketch 133

I used our Soft Suede for the base of the card and ran it through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing Folder. It’s stunning in person. I then matted it with Bermuda Bay and Dusty Durango. So pretty together.

I stamped the Medallion Stamp twice….once in Bermuda Bay and once in Soft Suede. I then cut the circle part out of the Soft Suede and attached it to the Bermuda Bay Medallion with Dimensional’s. I then took my In Color Markers and colored in the design and added a fire rhinestone brad.

The Dimensions for the mats are:

Dusty Durango Strip 1 1/8 x 5 1/2” and the mat is 3 5/8 x 3 7/8

Bermuda Bay 3 1/2 x 4”

White Image piece is 3 3/8x 3 3/4”

I used scraps for the sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. Come back and see me!

…and as always …/

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

I love the colors together, Lee! Don't you love it when inspiration jumps out and grabs you? The embossing on the card base is a nice touch as well. Thanks for the inspiration! Blessings, Gretchen

Love this! I wouldn't have thought to put those colors together but they work so well! I'll have to try something with them.

This is so beautiful, Lee, just like all your work. I love the color combo and the richness of it!
So good to see you last week, but I hate that we didn't get to spend more time together. Maybe at convention....
