I'm Mad For Mosaics...

...and the new In Colors too! The Mosaic Madness set and the coordinating products are a lot of fun to work with! The punch is quick & easy...just stamp and punch out shapes to layer onto a base embossed with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder. There's even a DSP called Quatrefancy Specialty...but I have yet to use that because I've been too busy enjoying the latest batch of In's no surprise that Coastal Cabana has already become an instant favorite!

The hardest part of this card was stamping each image inside the embossed area because I chose to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig. You could also eyeball it pretty easily if you are using the clear mount set, but I don't mind taking a few extra minutes using the Stamp-a-ma-jig because then I know each image will be pretty much centered. (otherwise it would bug me and I'd probably re-do it which would end up taking longer than using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to begin with!)

I used 4 out of the 5 new In Colors: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush & Crisp Cantaloupe.

As you can see above, this set makes a nice card on is own...but it also works well as a background for a multitude of other sets, (I'll show you an example of that next time) it can make masculine cards, feminine cards, and just about any occasion card, which makes it a very versatile set.

Last year at SAB time, I put several of your cards on my favorites list. I made those cards and gave them away. I looked at those again, wanting to make some of them a 2nd time, and I started looking at your other entries and realized I love your work! I will be following your blog. I guess your style suits me. TFS
