Mosaic Sneak Peek 2 — FMS84

Take a look at the great sketch that Linda Suarez has for us at Freshly Made Sketches this week:

When I first saw this sketch, I thought it would be great for a masculine card (and I never have enough of those).  And since I still had my new Mosaic Madness set sitting on my desk from yesterday, I decided to use it again.

FMS Mosaic

On yesterday’s card I used the coordinating embossing folder and punch.  On this card I used the coordinating dsp.  It has great patterns and fun, bright colors.  It also includes two printed window sheets.  That is what I used on top of the white flag.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  I hope you have time to go check out what the other designers did with the sketch, and to play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mosaic Sneak Peek

One of the cool things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is that we are allowed to see and pre-order selected items from catalogs before they are released to the public.  Last week we were given the opportunity to do this for the upcoming new annual catalog.  One of the new sets I ordered is called Mosaic Madness, and it has a cool new embossing folder and punch which coordinate with the stamp set.  I love coordination!

This stamp set is super fun!  I can’t wait to play with it more.  I love how it is so easy to build mosaic patterns because you can easily layer the stamps.  Plus, the punch makes it easy to cut them out.  And since the embossing folder coordinates with the punch and stamps, you can use either (or both, as I did with this card) directly on the embossed card stock.  So many possibilities!  So much versatility!

I used the layout from this awesome card made by Christina MacLaren.  I used different colors and different stamp sets, but the same layout.  She always makes such beautiful CAS cards.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
