Daydream Medallions & Tool Tip

Today I am sharing a card that features the item I discussed in my last post — the stamp image from the Daydream Medallions (126467) stamp set.  Daydream Medallions is a stamp set intended to be used with the Floral Frames Framelits (127012); however, I did not use them for this card, as you can see.


For my previous post, no one attempted a guess on how I created the frame around the Daydream Medallions stamp image shown on the card.  Thus, let me reveal to you how to create this frame.  As stated in my last post, if you closely examine the stamp set, you will see the frame.  However, the following provides the tip.


For background purposes, let me share first that I keep the foam-backed rubber pieces that are left after removing Stampin’ Up! die-cut stamps.  I remove the paper from the back of the rubber pieces, place them back inside the stamp set cases, and insert the stamps back into the appropriate pieces after using them.  With the paper removed from the rubber, the pieces will stick to the plastic cases, as well as the clear blocks for clear-mounted stamps.  I refer to the left-over rubber pieces as the outlines of the die-cut stamps.

Some of the outline rubber pieces can be used as actual stamps when the design of the outline affords that opportunity!  That is how I created the frame around the large, stamped medallion from the Daydream Medallions stamp set.  I positioned the large medallion outline onto the Stampin Up Clear Block F (118483), used a Stampin’ Write Marker to apply ink around the outline of the medallion, and stamped the outline onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I then stamped the medallion within the frame.  That’s it!!  Try it; you’ll like it!

Daydream Medallions

It is intended that the gorgeous Stampin Up Daydream Medallions Stamp Set (126467) be used with the wonderful Floral Frames Framelits (127012), right?  Being a person who tends to “think outside of the box”, I did not use the Floral Frames Framelits to frame the Daydream Medallions image in the picture below.  The picture is of an element that I am using to make a greeting card.

Looking closely, can you tell me how I made the frame around the Daydream Medallion stamp image?  If you have the Daydream Medallions stamp set, get it out and examine it closely and take a guess at how I framed the stamp image.  Leave your “guess” in the comments, and come back tomorrow to see the answer and the card that I made.

If I receive no guesses, I’ll assume there is no interest in learning a new method for framing the Daydream Medallions.

If you don’t have the Daydream Medallions stamp set, you can purchase it at my on-line shop.

Have a blessed day! Buy Stampin Up Products
