CDS Sneak Peek - Medallion de Fleur




Oh good! I'm so glad that you are joining me again for the second card of the day for the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks :) This gorgeous background stamp is called the Medallion de Fleur and will be available on June 1st. For a larger peek of the stamp, please pop by the Clearly iStamp blog :)



When I first saw this stamp, I immediately thought of how feminine it looked and it begged to be embossed in white on white vellum. I adore how elegant this technique looks and I'm pretty sure that it was made for stamps like the Medallion de Fleur ;) This stamping technique looks particularly stunning on anything to do with weddings!

Since I was already working with the vellum, I decided to take it one step further and create the flower and leaves out of the same materials. I simply sponged some inks on a piece of vellum and then punched and die cut the shapes out. I think that it adds just the right touch of softness to the card :)

Clear Dollar Stamps has also recently introduced their own cardstock, ribbon, copic and tombow line called the Clearly Coordinating Collection. For my samples this month I used some card stocks from the soon to be released (June 1st) Rustic Fall line called Ripe Olive. I thought that it was such a pretty colour and if you take a close look at my card, I not only used it as a matting but also to add a change of colour behind the medallion embossed vellum and tied it all together with some of the Ripe Olive ribbon :)

Thanks for coming by again and here is a list of more CDS goodness for you to drool over ;)
