Stamp Envy

Admit it...you've had it! You know...when there's that one stamp you want so dearly, but haven't bought yet...and your friend gets it on her next order. Well, this stamp for me is the Medallion. Why don't I own this YET??? My sweet friend Nicole was kind enough to bring her stamp to share with little 'ol me today as we got together for some much needed stamp time ;) And, I took full advantage.

I made these two beautiful cards. This stamp is so versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down. You decide. The White Medallion was embossed with White Embossing Powder. It just pops. My inspiration for this card is this one by kraftykate. The other Medallion was stamped with the Chocolate Chip Classic Pad. I didn't have the CC Craft Pad or I would have tried it. I think it may have given it a sharper image. But, I'm happy with how it turned out. This card was inspired by this card over at ArtisticAvenger. She made four cards with this one stamp set. What a great idea!

Nicole let me borrow her cherished stamp, so I plan to do a bit more with it (like stash it away...shhhh, don't tell her ;) So, I'm sure you'll see more of this guy. Thanks for stopping by!

Please don't steal my stamp! These cards turned out beautifully. It's really fun to see you working on them then see the cards posted on the Internet.

If we were closer, you can share my stamp, too. You did a great one with the medallion. This stamp is foolproof, in my opinion, everything turns out beautiful w it.
