Dasher Medallion with Versamark/Stampin’ Mist Technique

I know Christmas is over 4 months away, however, when I read about this technique shown at convention I just had to try it and the Christmas card below is the result. Now let me tell you this is my third try and I am very happy with the results. The first & second try were not wasted and I will post those cards latter this week.

Stampin' Up! Dasher Medallion with Versamark/ Stampin' Mist Technique

Here is the inside:

Stampin' Up! Dasher Medallion with Versamark/ Stampin' Mist Technique

The technique is done by inking your cardstock direct to paper, then ink the Medallion stamp with Versamark, spray the stamp with Stampin' Mist and then stamp the Medallion image on the inked paper. Well inked stamp pads work best.

Did you apply the ink by running the Cherry Cobbler ink pad over the paper or did you brayer? Do you think brayering would work? Thanks for sharing this beautiful technique!

I ran the ink pad over the paper. I did not try the brayer,however, it might work. It takes a couple of trys, at least for me, to get it right. Make sure your versamark pad is well inked and make sure the ink pad you use is well inked also (darker inks work best). Also plenty of Stampin’ Mist, however, not so much that it runs. Have fun playing. I will posting 2 other cards made with my first two trys and even though the technique did not come out like the Dasher card, I like the cards made with my “rejects”!

This is beautiful!  So you are saying you just rubbed the paper with the ink pad to cover it?  Then stamp on the medallion as you described once the ink is dry, or still wet?  Then you used gold embossing to add the deer image?  Wow, it is so nice!

Carrie, Thanks for asking.  You want the ink on the paper to be still wet, so the ink can be "lifted" from the card.

In the upper right hand corner is a brad from Stampin’ Up!’s Antique Brads #117273 on page 187 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. You can see all the brads on page 187, there are 5 different brads, 4 of each for a total of 20 antique brads for $5.95.

Thank you for your comments!

Hello!  So I tried this technique and was very impressed with the outcome!  The only thing I suggest is after you stamp the inked cardstock (which I inked with a brayer) with the Versamarked/Sprayed Medallion stamp, dry the versamark with the heat tool or you will get a globbed mess of gold embossing powder when trying to emboss the Dasher stamp! 
I actually changed up the card a bit by centering the Medallion stamp on the inked cardstock, then I sprinkled the gold embossing powder onto the image – The embossing powder stuck to the existing versamark but it was scattered and jagged throughout the Medallion!  I pushed the same Antique Brad through the centre of the Medallion and embossed a Merry Christmas saying in white to the front – It turned out very neat!
Thanks for the idea Jean!
