FALL FLAIR, Fall Gratitude Medallion...

Today was my Fall Flair class.  I designed the projects a while ago, but the class had to be delayed until today, but we had plenty of fall fun.  Join us for my Christmas Club Card #4 class next Saturday!

This card was our first project.  It uses the Emboss Resist technique for the stamped image.  Then we just used sponge daubers to randomly add color to the image.  The piece under it was made with the Top Note Die (directions follow recipe).  Stampin' Dimensionals are used between the image and Top Note medallion as well as between the Top Note medallion  and the embossed background.  I also used Shimmer Mist on the embossed background, but it doesn't show up very well in the picture.

I also did an alternate version with Clear Embossing Powder on Naturals Ivory CS for a different look:

  • Stamp Sets – Day of Gratitude (W#120835 $26.95, C#121148 $18.95)
  • Card Stock – Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
  • Ink – Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso Classic, VersaMark
  • Ribbon – Early Espresso 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain (#119961, $9.95)
  • Accessories – Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430, $3.95), Shimmer Mist made with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (#116806, $5.95) and  70% alcohol
  • Tools – Sponge Daubers, Big Shot, Top Note Die (#113463, $21.95), Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#119277, $7.95)
TOP NOTE MEDALLION DIRECTIONS (click to enlarge pictures to see the way the cardstock is turned before cutting):
1. Cut Top Note from cardstock.

2. Turn the die cut 90 degrees (use points of die cut to line up and center) and cut again.  This results in a 4-point shape I like to use a lot as well (see resulting shape on step #3).

3. Turn the resulting die cut 45 degrees and cut again.

4. Turn 90 degrees one more time and cut again to cut away the remaining large points.

5. The result is a 16-point medallion.  When applying the stamped Days of Gratitude medallion, line up the 8 points of the Gratitude medallion with the 8 longer Top Note medallion points.
