MJ ALBRIGHT INSPIRED

This criss cross card uses the NEW Stampin' Up! Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper and Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons. Yep, Stampin' Up! has FIVE different Rub-On packages available in the NEW '08 Spring-Summer Catalog & Idea Book (pg. 182, U.S.)!

The medallion for my card was inspired by Mary Jo Albright's card seen HERE. MJ also shows how to achieve the look of the Pumpkin Pie layer of the medallion using the Scallop Punch.

The flower image of my medallion, and the wording on the card insert were achieved with the NEW Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons. (MJ stamped her flower image from the stamp set, A Beautiful Thing, in Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder). I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first about these Rub-Ons, but after using them for the first time last night, I'm sold! The are so easy to use! Simply cut out the Rub-On image you want to use and remove it from the backing sheet. Lay the image on a flat surface, and firmly rub the image with the stick that comes in the package to transfer it to your project. They can be used on paper and most non-porous surfaces, including glass, photos, clipboards, candles, and more. The Rub-On images are designed to coordinate with many Stampin' Up! stamp sets. Notice how the flower Rub-On for the medallion is the same flower image found in the stamp set, A Beautiful Thing. Each Rub-On package contains two sheets, 1 ea. black and white.

Nancy - Love your post and thanks so much for sharing the link to Mary Jo's blog and how to reinsert a punched piece of CS back into the punch! Doh! Probably never would have thought of that.
