So, here's what I came up with.....
I've been on a bit of a medallion streak recently - once you start making those fun things; it's really kind of hard to stop! (You'll be seeing some of my other medallion projects soon).
And I also happened to be working with some of SNS's Patriotic Stamp Sets for another project. So....the idea just popped into my head - why not combine the two and make a Patriotic/Summer Table decoration?! What a perfect addition it would be to anyone's picnic or home decor!
Wouldn't this just be great for your 4th of July festivities?!
Personally, I just love patriotic decor and I think it would look awesome sitting out around the house all year round too.
The stamps all came from the Patriotic Icons - Set 433. And of course, every patriotic design needs lots and lots of sparkle and POP. So for my sparkle & pop, I've used embossing powders and sparkling embossing powders for the sayings and lots and lots of glitter all around! I wish you could see it glistening in person! So colorful, sparkly and FUN!
Here's some close ups of the individual medallions and the sparkly stars I included.

I had so much fun with this piece. And I love how it turned out so much that I'm already working on a birthday version of it! So many decorative possibilities with this - how about for a wedding or baby shower, a graduation party, 25th or 50th anniversary - so many possibilities! And Sparkle N Sprinkle has all the stamps and "glitz" to make yours just perfect!
Hope you liked this fun "anything but a card" project. I always love to know you stopped by and I also love to hear what you think; so don't forget to leave a comment before you leave. (If I've inspired you to create one of your own; be sure to leave me a link so I can see what you created!)
And don't forget to make an "Anything but a Card" creation for your entry into the SNS Creative Challenge this month too! Hope you have a wonderful, Happy and Safe Holiday!!
Until next time,
