"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

MEDALLION SNOWFLAKE / SSSC #46, EIC #64 & VSNOV09c...


Doesn't this Medallion stamp look like a giant snowflake? I just love it...




I decided to get an early jump on the Sweet Sunday Sketch, I usually wait until the last minute! I also decided to play along with a new-to-me challenge, EtsyInspired. They feature an Etsy shop & you browse around it for your inspration! Very cool! This is also the third challenge for the Verve Blog Party.


Here's what I used for the 3rd Verve challenge...

V - Velvet ribbon
E - Embossing powder
R - Rhinestones
V - Vellum
E - Embossing (dry)


The stamp is called Medallion from Stampin' Up! I recently viewed a demo by Shelli Gardner (SU!'a founder & CEO) at the Cincinnati Regional Seminar where she clear embossed the Medallion & then sponged ink onto it... so here's my take on it ~ too easy! I placed a few clear rhinestones on it and the velvet ribbon to add a little bling appeal. The vellum square I ran through the Big Shot with an embossing plate. Lastly, I added a little retired sentiment to the bottom right corner & embossed it in silver.


2 more to go, will I make it?
