Christmas in May??

The AZ Scrapbooking store never heard of medallion stamps or even Holly Berry before a couple weeks ago when we (Debi and I) started talking.  Since then they purchased a few and I'll be doing a class in July.  But our son and his family sent me a Mom's Day card and our 2 granddaughters signed it plus sent a couple school pictures and I just had to play with one of HB's stamps.  The paper is all scrap from my stash and I tried to match some of the colors in her dress.  The image is stamped 5 times and embossed with black embossing powder on VersaMark ink.  I'll do one with the other granddaughter soon but here's Ro...

My hubby had a heck of a time believing this was all from 1 stamp! I had to show him the stamp! LOL!  I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen to add lots of bling to the white layer.

Here's the top closeup.  I also used my white gel pen where you see the white in the leaves and red Stickles for the berry.  I should have used my Xstatic pad as I had loose pieces of the embossing powder where I didn't want it.  Gotta find that little pad before I do this again!

I will post the pictures the first of July of the one I will be teaching at the store.  Until then.... What are you doing with photos of your loved ones?

How nice - and all from one stamp. How much fun could you have with these. I am sure your class will be great.
