Waltzingmouse March Release...Folk Art Medallion

Good morning!
So what are your thoughts so far?
Loving everything you've seen?
Just wait until you see what we've got for you today!

This is my favorite day...
the day that we get to show you the last set for this release...
Folk Art Medallion...
and it's my favorite set and as soon as it landed in my hands I knew I was in love.
This is a 6x8 and it is packed with possibilities...
I didn't even tip the iceberg on what this set can do and since I've got a few projects for you today I'm just going to get right to it....

Look at that amazing medallion...
large enough to cover an entire card front all on it's own...
and since it's a building set...
you can stamp all the different elements in various colors to create truly gorgeous folk art patterns.
I choose to go with a bright red, blue, green and yellow color scheme for this one...
some of my favorite colors.

That sentiment is one you will recognize from yesterday...
Folk Art Labels 25...
and yes...
all of the sets from this release compliment each other and are easily mixed together.
A few navy seed pearls and this card was done.
And I usually avoid one layers...
I have a hard time with them but not with this set...
so easy to create stunning one layer cards that also easy to mass produce and mail...
always a plus!

I stayed with the same color pattern for my next card..
you know me and my love of anything navy...

I built this pattern from pieces included in the set and they are so easy to line up and stamp like a dream this card literally came together in just minutes.

That gorgeous sentiment is also included in this set and with some more navy seed pearls...
all done.

For the next one I went with a totally different color scheme...

I stamped that gorgeous medallion in Versamark onto black cardstock and then heat embossed in various Zing embossing powders...
don't those colors just pop off that black background?
This is what I really think of when I think of folk art...
dark backgrounds and vibrant colors.

For my last project I went super simple...

I stamped the pattern from my first card only in bright red, turquoise and yellow...
and I left the middle open to then be able to stamp a monogram initial...
which Victorian Alphabet fit perfectly.

A couple of scor lines down at the bottom...
and since I made 4 of these I packaged them all into a clear box...

I stamped the large floral element in Versamark onto some Tempting Turquoise cardstock and then tied with a small grosgrain ribbon.
How great is that for a quick and easy gift?

OK that's it for me today but make sure to check out all the rest of the DT to see all of the amazing creations  using this gorgeous set.
