Mosaic Madness Sneak Peek

As a perk for being a Senior Supervisor, every time a new preorder comes around, I get to purchase a select bundle of products at 40% off.  This time it was select products from the new Quatre Fancy Suite. I finally took some time yesterday to play with it and this is what I made:

Colors: Strawberry Slush, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  Stamps: Mosaic Madness, Really Good Greetings.  Big Shot: Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Windows Collection Framelits. Punch: 2-1/2" Circle Punch.  Accessories: Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rhinestone Jewels, Festive Paper Piercing Template, Versamark. 
To make this card, first I took a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the new Mosaic Madness Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  But I wanted to add a little more depth to the paper so I grabbed my Versamark Stamp Pad and rubbed it over the top of the texture to make it pop out more.   Then I went back with the Mosaic Madness stamp set and stamped in the "middle" (well almost he middle in some cases) of the larger openings. 

There is a coordinating punch that goes with this suite, but I was a little disappointed that it doesn't fit inside the embossing folder impressions.  But it is still nice to have a suite of products that beautifully coordinate together.  It has to be my favorite thing about Stampin' Up!

I also used a new greeting set called Really Good Greetings here.  It's a great set with lots of fun greetings, some of them a little more sassy than this one.  But I love this sentiment because it is something I truly believe: everything will be OK even if we can't see what OK is yet.

Finally, the card needed some embellishments so I added the rhinestones.  I wanted to use a button or something but I didn't have any new ones and I haven't had time to play with the new clay that is coming out soon and make one to match.  Hopefully next week.  That will give you something to anticipate.

Great card! I had to try the same thing, stamping in the depressions :) I would not have thought of this color combo, but I love it!

So many new goodies on here, and they look great together! Cool layout and I really like the shape combination of the sentiment layers. Neato!

The colors are really fun. The rhinestones and the stamping in the middle make it perfect. Can't wait to play with this set.
