Mosaic Madness Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek Mosiac Madness CPC ChallengeWell…I had tons of fun making this card.   I wanted to experiment with some techniques today and my aim was to create a glass tile look using the brand new Mosaic Madness stamp set and matching Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.   For inspiration, I decided a challenge was in order and loved this layout from Craft Project Central

024

Inkydayz How Tos:

  • Dry emboss a piece of vellum using the Modern Mosaic  Embossing Folder (available 2 July).
  • Lay a piece of coloured card under your vellum so it’s easier to see where to stamp and using your Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp in the mosaic sections.  My aim was an old mosaic tile look, so I wasn’t fussy with my stamping.  I dried each one using my trusty heat tool prior to stamping the next as the ink takes a little longer to dry on the vellum.
  • Cut the card to size.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your brayer to cover your piece of stamped card with the versamark.
  • Cover the sheet with clear embossing power and use your heat tool to melt the powder.
  • Optional step.  Dry emboss again, lining up the previous embossing in the embossing folder. I found that this helped bring the pattern out better.
  • To make the faux washi tape, I simply coloured a piece of vellum by running the vellum across my ink pad and then used my finger to even out the colour.

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).
