The Stamp Review Crew: Mosaic Madness

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/
Welcome back for another The Stamp Review Crew blog hop. This time we are featuring Mosaic Madness.  Love all the projects this group puts together for these hops.  I will confess that I have a hard time with this stamp set.  I feel like all the projects I make with it end up looking the same.  So I am just as anxious as you are to see what new and different ways people came up with to use this set.

My first project is not very original.  I like to think I used these stamps in a slightly different way than others have in the past, but not sure I really did.  I kept it very simple and relied on the Stamp-A-Majig heavily to create a border for this card with two of the stamps:

Colors: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.  Stamps: Mosaic Madness and Chalk Talk.  Punches: Artisan Label and XL Oval.  Accessories: Stamp-A-Majig and Rhinestones.
And I will admit I cheated on this second project.  It was actually a project my club made last year when this stamp set first came out.  But I never did get around to sharing it on my blog back then so I get to share it with you today.  Here I used one of the border stamps from Mosaic Madness to decorate one of our Kraft Gift Boxes.  Notice I even stamped it on the ribbon:

Colors: Kraft, Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar and Naturals Ivory.  Stamps: Mosaic Madness and Label Love.  Big Shot: Labels Collection Framelits.  Punch: Artisan Label and Word Window.  Accessories: Kraft Gift Box, 7/8" Cotton Ribbon. 
Thanks for stopping by today for my take on Mosaic Madness.  If you like my projects, please feel free to leave a little blog love in the comment section below or share them on Pinterest.
