Medallion and Bliss

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all having a wonderfull day in the sunshine - isent it gorgeous, we're even sitting in the conservatory for the first time this year and looooooong may that continue.

Today's class was loads of fun, everyone enjoying the two cards that we made.........well let's say they enjoyed most elements of the card but that the ruffle ribbon on card two was a bit of a challenge.  The first was using the SAB set Bliss and making a cut out with the Scallop Circle Extra-Large punch to see through.  We also used a thin layer of crystal effects to coat the inner scallop as well as using the aqua painters to add the chocolate splatter background.  The second card, which could be used as a masculine Valentines, used the background stamp medallion and of course the piece of ribbon. I hasten to add that every card was beautifull at the end.

Stamp set used: Bliss (SAB 2011)

Accessories used: Aqua Painters, crystal effects

Stamp set's used: Medallion and Circle of friendship (retired)

Happy Crafting


  1. Both so nice... the first one is pretty and the second one is so smart and stylish. Love the way you use blue and brown with such ease... I love the medallion stamp.

    Happy crafting to a very talented crafter,


  2. Love them both Loraine, but know what you mean about the ruffled ribbon; it's not as easy as it looks!

  3. Oh wow Loraine. I love the butterflies on the first, but the second has completely blown me away. Glad you enjoyed the sunshine, we just have damp drizzle. xxx

  4. Both cards are beautiful but the butterfly one does it for me. Your ruffle ribbon looks great :o)

  5. Very clever what you have done with the ribbon Loraine and I really like the matching stamp.

  6. Of course they were, they were all 'perfect'! I'm still ridiculously proud of the blue one, I think I'll have a go at another one with that do crafts medallion stamp I bought...

  7. Your classes always sound such fun and your cards just get better and better! Both cards are gorgeous but the medallion card with the ruffled ribbon is a real stunner!
