Medallion Man!

It was my regular Monday night class yesterday, we had two new peeps, Glenda and Sandra, welcome and I hope you enjoyed yourselves. We had a really good laugh with lots of Chocolate.
The theme was cards for men (always tricky!). It was a great reason to use some of the delicious To the Nines designer paper, until you see this in real life it is difficult to appreciate just what excellent quality this is. Textured and double sided, a real luxury.

We made an origami shirt and a cute tie from the Soft Suede polka dot ribbon, I found the idea on Monica's blog and thought it would be perfect for this card. We also made a faux button from punched circles of cardstock with Crystal Effects to add shine.

The second card is a more vintage style, using the Medallion and French Script background stamps. We sponged some soft suede ink over the image to soften the white cardstock.

Our last project was this hanging treat holder, there was a bar of chocolate sitting in it, but that got eaten last night!

Thanks for looking

Blog Hop

Welcome to the latest In Love With stamping Blog Hop to celebrate the arrival of our fabby new colours, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry. Colours to make your mouth water.

If you joined me from Karin's blog I am sure you enjoyed her wonderful projects.

Here is my first card with Soft Suede, I have used the medallion stamp and also some of the Gold Shimmer paint for a bit of sparkle. The polka dot ribbon matches perfectly.

Next the ever so lovely Melon Mambo, a stunning colour. I used the hostess Set Whimsical Wings, you can earn this stamp set free on a qualifying party and now is a great time to hold a party as you will also earn extra £20.00 of hostess benefits. Get in touch if you would like to know more. Dazzling diamonds and heat and stick powder were used to glitter up the image.

Finally Rich Razzleberry, another stunning colour. I used some of the Cottage Wall designer paper and one of the frames from the Hodge Podge Kit.
