Clean and Simple Medallion Cards with Blockheads Stamps

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are having a great weekend!  I have four cards for you today!  I went pretty Clean and Simple (CAS) with this group of cards.  I used lots of pretty Cardstock, dry embossing folders, Spellbinders, and one stamp set.  The stamp set is Nature Medallions from Blockheads Paper Arts.  This is what the whole set looks like.  I used the three larger medallions for my projects.

Materials list needed to  make the projects:
Nature Medallion Stamp Set: Blockheads Paper Arts
Spellbinders dies: Standard Circles Small; Big Scalloped Circles small
Embossing Folders: Swiss Dots - Cuttlebug; Post Cards, Regal Flourishes, and Damask - Sizzix
Inks: Sweet Plum- Memento, pink,aqua, and plum
Various colors of Cardstock
Now, on to the first card.  I used a combo of pink and soft blue CS's, a Regal Flourishes-Tim Holtz embossing folder, and the Flower Medallion stamp.   The image is stamped on White CS and cut with the Spellbinders die.  A layer of pink is cut too.  Add a big bow and you are done.  

The next card is made in the same way, just vary the colors, embossing folder, and image.

This uses the Bee Postage Medallion, Sweet Plum Memento ink; and I chose Lavender and plum CS.  And, of course a big bow.  

Card number three uses the Butterfly Medallion image and is stamped in a dark plum ink.  I used Lavender and dark plum CS and a blue ribbon.

The Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder was used here.  

And the last card also uses the Flower Medallion image.  The Cardstock is in two shades of pink with of pop of dark cherry under the image.  Pink ink was used.  This embossing  folder is  Damask from Tim Holtz.  

The Flower Medallion was stamped in pink ink on white CS.  I added a dark cherry polka dot ribbon.

I did not use any other embellishment other than the ribbon.  I wanted the Clean and Simple look.   so, a great set of all occasion cards.  I will just add sentiments to the inside and the cards will be appropriate for any on my card giving needs.  The cards go together so quickly too.  I ended up making about ten altogether they were so easy.  And, they look great.
Have a great weekend.  Love ya.
