Mosaic Coastal

Good morning, Friends! Are you all ready for a great weekend? I'm not quite sure what's on the schedule for us today but I do hope it's relaxing and that we can stay cool! I do need to get some stamping and sewing done so I should stay pretty cool! I feel like the summer is already going by way too quickly! I also need to make a goal to update my sewing blog. Geesh! I haven't given that any attention in almost a year! And I do have a lot of projects to share! Guess I had better get on top of that!

Today's card was inspired by one I saw in a Stampin' Success magazine. This is a magazine that demonstrators get once every two months. It is filled with all kinds of ideas for your business as well as beautiful projects. This magazine was a few months old but I still got the idea for this card from it. Love how you can swap stamp sets and colors and get a new card!! Anyway, This card features some new goodies! So I am in LOVE with the new In Color Coastal Cabana! SO pretty! I used the new Color Coach to come up with the color combo on this. I stamped the long image from Mosaic Madness in Coastal Cabana onto a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock and then the sentiment from Four You in Coastal Cabana right under that. Above the image I used the Essentials paper piercing pack to pierce a line of holes. Then this panel is popped up onto a card base of Coastal Cabana. Then I stamped the mosaic image onto a piece of Very Vanilla using the new Smoky Slate ink (LOVE this color, too). I punched it out with the mosaic punch. This is popped up onto the card. I stamped the small mosaic image in Calypso Coral and fussy cut this out. This is adhered to the larger mosaic with a glue dot and a pearl is added to the center. A super easy card with beautiful colors! Thanks for stopping by and have a glorious day!!

  2. I love this card! It's simple, but has beautiful lines and the color is great! I think I must love Coastal Cabana too :}

  3. Nicely done. The piercing is so subtle, but such a nice element here. It really adds to the overall feel of this card.
