Make a Medallion for #GDP076

This week I was excited to receive an order from Stampin' Up!  The box(es!) contained lots of fabulous new products alongside some useful staples.  The consigment included one of the new Sale-A-Bration items, the Make A Medallion stamp setwhich I have used for my solution to the Global Design Project Challenge this week.

This week we are challenged to CASE the designer, Kylie Bertucci.  The card she has picked to CASE this week is the card that persuaded me to contribute my very first entry to the Global Design Project in December 2016 - it was a colour challenge - I loved the colours You can see my entry to that colour challenge HERE.

Back to this week's challenge. To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit - take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colours, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.   
As I mentioned I loved the colours of Kylie's card, I also loved the layout and the stamps! So, to CASE Kylie this week I have used the same layout, but used different stamps and different colours.

When I first saw the pictures of the Make a Medallion stamps, I wasn't sure if it was a stamp set I would enjoy using.  Fast forward to now, and I am very slightly hooked!  I had a few practise goes and then started on a clean sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Before I knew it I had filled the whole sheet of A4!  I had made my own one sheet wonder and was ready to cut into it, and I've now made several cards!

The colours I have used are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.  I found it was easy to line the images up because the stamps are photopolymer so you can see through them for accurate placement.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting
