Background Basics: Medallions is a two-part background building set that allows you to combine layers of color and pattern for stunning results. You will love having the ability to also use the pattern strips individually, if desired. The smaller blocks feature a scaled down version of hte patterns, allowing you to quickly apply the look to smaller die-cuts and other details. We are now offering new background stamp dimensions, with each strip measuring 5-3/4" long. The strips also have an extra wide base so it's easier to line everything up! The set includes two mini blocks, as well – they're perfect for adding patterns to smaller areas or die cuts. The pattern on the blocks is a scaled-down version of what is on the strips.

The final introduction for today is the newest felt color to our fantastic 100% wool felt collection. This month's addition is Spring Moss. Spring Moss holds a special place in my heart because it was one of the first color introductions we made during our first anniversary celebration. I think you'll agree that it is a great addition to the collection!
Now that all the introductions have been made for today, let's get right to the projects!
For my first project today I paired up several of the new additions we are introducing today.
The beautiful background was created with the new Background Basics: Medallions set. I am just totally smitten with the results you can get with this two-step process. I stamped the larger circle strips with Simply Chartreuse ink, followed by the smaller circle strips in Ocean Tides. Doesn't it look just like a beautiful paper you would by at a boutique?
I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from Think Big Favorites #13 onto a strip of Ripe Avocado cardstock using Ripe Avocado ink. I then added a little sentiment from Simply You (more about that later on in the week) underneath in True Black. The "You" circle was stamped with VersaMark ink onto Ocean Tides cardstock and punched out with a 1/2" circle punch.
My next project is bold and bright and sure to bring sunshine to someone's day. I started with white cardstock die-cut with the Mega Mat Stack 3 die and stamped several different elements from Frilly Flowers to cover it. I used Berry Sorbet, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse & Summer Sunrise.
I stamped the sentiment from Think Big Favorites #13 with Simply Chartreuse ink onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I die-cut two strips of Berry Sorbet cardstock with the small scalloped border die and trimmed them with a kraft knife and ruler. After adhering everything into place, I pierced holes along the scallops.
This card uses one of the sentiments from Global Greetings: Spanish. I started with a block of white cardstock and stamped several of the Frilly Flowers along the bottom edge of the block using Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Plum Pudding.
This project focuses more on an earth-tone scheme. I trimmed some Dearest Jane script paper into a block and stamped it with these Frilly Flowers using Canyon Clay ink. I then added a few other scattered flowers from Beautiful Blooms II with Dark Chocolate ink. I trimmed around the outside edge with Tea Dye Duo.
