The beauty of finding a new way to use a Stampin' Up! punch--priceless! Today's card and 1 Minute to WOW! Video tutorial demonstrate a cool way to transition a Scallop Circle into a splashy medallion (think gold medal or blue ribbon, zippy sentiment, flower, sun) using the Star Punch. The idea was presented to me by Ben Turner, one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals. The "congratulations" card he sent me is below. Thanks so much, Ben :)
AND it's Mojo Monday time. Check out today's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO183). It's a classic that you can use time and time again!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- You have heard this from me before. Inspiration is everywhere and fashion catalogs can be a playground of color, texture and pattern ideas. It's pretty obvious what stirred my creative juices, oui?
- A snippet of Basic Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon adds a little "flair" to the sentiment.
- More Mustard Textured Card Stock (Regals Textured Card Stock) provides a rich finish. I used it below the Basic Black scallop trim and for the "stripe."
