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!


  • 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.
  • Yummy new designer series paper stacks give projects a pop of colour and are on trend.  Love love love the new paper stacks.
  • We welcome Bermuda Bay to the Brights range.  Isn’t this colour delish?

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


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.

  • Run a piece of vellum across the Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad (available 2 July), smooth with your finger and, voilà, you have Crisp cantaloupe washi tape!
  • Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe (both available 2 July) make a lovely combination for the tile panel
