Medallion Happy Holidays

It was a busy weekend for me! We had a family engagement on Saturday. Congratulations, Vincent and Claire! Also, every year we attend Children's Christmas Mass which is around the first Sunday of December and have Breakfast with Santa at our church. The boys are so cute, they actually didn't make too much fuss this year when I dress them up alike! :) Well, they did on Saturday when I dressed them up for the Engagement. Jake said he doesn't want to go to a "Fancy Party" because he doesn't want to dress up with vest and fancy shoes! Well, he got his point because when we were at Claire's house, they were diving in the grass and leaves, having too much fun to care for their fancy clothes!

I've also updated the post with Rudolph since many people have inquired about how I did the oval.

Today, I want to share with you the last card with Four the Holidays stamp set along with the beautiful Medallion Background stamp. It didn't make it to the Fun and Fast Christmas Card Class for a few reasons, but it sure is really beautiful! OK, so one of the reasons is the coloring of those small circles. It can get so uneven that it doesn't look as good!

Stamp Set: Medallion Background and Four the Holidays

Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White

Ink: Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Classic ink

Accessories: Pearl Basic Jewels, Cherry Cobbler marker, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, Sponge

Four The Holidays(116921)

Hope you will have a beautiful day!



  1. Hi, Danee,
    Such handsome sons!Thanks for sharing a picture of them. Hope your family had a bounteous Thanksgiving and thought of all your Blessings---and wishing you a Blessed Christmas, too. I did have a question--how did you NOT stamp the center of the medallion. I have that stamp but when I try to NOT stamp the center, by covering it, I still have some telltale marks. Maybe I'm just too fussy! lol I'm getting therapy on my hand now--so I hope to be back stamping by the New Year. (Gail S.)

  2. Hi Gail,

    Thank you! You have discovered the 2nd reason why I don't add this to the class. :) I punch out a Post-It-Note(near the sticky area) with a 1-3/4" circle, mask the center of the stamp, ink it up, remove the mask, and stamp. Hope this helps.
