OK - I'm back! They went to bed very nicely, actually. Dylan has telltale cheeks when he is tired, they turn beet red. When he says he is not tired, I make him go look in the mirror, and off he goes. Today, though, he admitted it on his own, and about 5 minutes after putting them down, they were both fast asleep. YAY - more ME time! So, here is the tutorial for y'all. I can't take credit for this, like I said in my previous post, I learned this at my upline meeting.
- 3 scrap pieces of CS in different colors
- glue and dimensionals
- ink (I only show one, but you can use 2)
- punches (scallop circle, 1 3/8 circle and the 1" circle)
- a brad
- scissors and stamps (not pictured)
First, you will stamp your image for the top part of the medallion, I used sahara sand CS and ink. I do not have the SU Wanted set, so I had to find something else. This image from So Many Scallops is perfect. You need to punch of the center with the 1" circle punch, and the inner image fits perfectly inside!!
Now, you punch out the whole thing with the scallop punch, and the top part is done.
Now, you need to stamp your under image onto another scrap, I used white and ruby red ink. Punch it out with the 1 3/8 circle, as well, making sure that it is centered. Glue these 2 pieces together, and add a brad to the center of the star.
Then, take your dimensionals, and cut 2 of them in half, putting them close to the center circle on the back of your scalloped piece. Now, you just line up the star in the opening, and stick them together. The medallion on the right skips the dimensional step, and I just glued the it to the back.
This is one way to embellish a guy card, and not have it be too feminine. Have fun and happy stamping!!
