Stamp Review Crew: Daydream Medallions Edition

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's blog hop!  This time the Daydream Medallions stamp set is in the spotlight.  This beautiful stamp set has been around for awhile but we are here to show you some updated ideas for using it!

Even though it is warm it is not too early start Christmas crafting!  My thinking is if I get a few holiday things done now I will be ahead of the game for once!!

For my project I combined the Daydream Medallion stamp set with a couple of new products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday catalog to make an ornament.  

I first stamped the medallion image five times and die cut them with concentric circle framelits.  The resulting circles are folded in half and glued back to back.  The tree in the center is made with the new Tree Punch.  Five trees are folded and suspended on a transparent thread so it spins around and two pieces of handcut DSP are attached to the thread at the bottom.

This really was pretty quick to make (minus the drying time).  I filmed my FIRST video tutorial if you would like to see more details of how it is made.



Now for more ideas using this super stamp set please click on the buttons below.  The next button will take you to Beth's blog and her fun projects and the previous button will take you to Ann's blog for another Christmas idea!

  6. I like your ornament. I tried to watch the video, but it was listed as "private." I know that can be changed by you, but I have no idea how. Thanks for sharing your project!

  8. Hi Betty, I'm enjoying the hop today. But I use a kindle, and it doesn't recognize the link to your tutorial. I still can watch it if you'll tell me your you tube name. Then I can look for you there. Your project is a sweet little decoration. Thanks, Jess.
