Freshly Made Sketches 90 Sneak Peek

I am loving the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and matching Modern Mosaic embossing folder (both available 2 July) so much that I just had to make another card using it today.  I struggled to get going today so to get my creative flow going I thought I’d try the latest sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  Here’s the sketch…
FMS Final 90-001And here is my card.

FMS 90 Mosiac Madness

Oh…and by the way…did I mention that there is also a matching punch (available 2 July)?  Told you I had awesome news.  Genuis…right!

Tips:

  • Ink up the embossing folder with your trusty brayer before running trough the big shot.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your clean brayer to cover the piece of embossed card with the versamark.
  • Cover the piece with clear embossing power and melt the powder using your heat tool.
  • Spray the reverse side of the piece of card with a little water and crumple.

Sneak Peeks (all available from 2 July):

  • Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and matching Punch will be available as a bundle so you can save $$!
  • The matching Modern Mosaic Embossing folder adds versatility to the stamp set and punch so you get more bang for your buck.

New Stampin Up In Colours

Well my big brown box of fabulous new goodies has arrived.  Happy, happy , happy dance!

This is my first CASE from the new catalogue.  When I saw this card, I just had to try to re-create it.  I’ve used three of the fabulous 2013-2014 In Colours for this project, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar and I just love how these colours work together.  Because I don’t have the markers yet I did have to compromise a little but I think Pear Pizzazz works quite well.

This card is for a special someone and I’ll be popping it in a parcel with a handmade gift that I’ve been working on for some time.  I hope she likes it.

memorable moments case

Tips:

  • Use your stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the stamp across the card.
  • I’ve used my Pear Pizzazz marker and free-handed the lines, ovals, circles and a border around the stamps.  Don’t worry about perfection, here.  It’s meant to look hand-made remember.
  • Using your trusty paper snips, trim around the edges.

Sneak Peeks:

  • Welcome to the colour range Pistachio Pudding, Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe.  Three of the new In Colours in the 2013-2014 Stampin Up Catalogue (available from 2 July).
  • We also welcome back on oldie but a goodie, Pear Pizzazz (available from 2 July)
