Inspiration Mosaic Blog Hop!!




Hey all! Welcome to the Blog Hop! We have some awesome creations to share with you tonight with Melanie's newest set Inspiration Mosaic! This set was so popular that it sold out, but now is BACK IN STOCK! It is such a fun and versatile set...you can do CAS cards, or go all out! For my first card, it's CAS card:



I decided to get a jump start on Christmas! This card was really quick and simple...just a bit of coloring and...what? GLITTER?? yep! I used glitter!! LOL! I combined Mel's stamp with Funky Christmas on this card, colored with copics, used my quickie glue pen to add the glitter, popped up the image panels and tied a ribbon, added little corner punches and brads and was done! I can mass produce these really quick so I do believe this will be my Christmas cards for this year!

And I did another card. This actually was my first card I did, but decided it didnt show the blocks of the stamp good enough, lol!:




I combined Mel's stamp this time with Theresa's newest set Timeless Treasures. I didnt get to participate in the blog hop of Theresa's last week, so decided to use it this time too. I was going for a grunge look on this one. I stamped the block stamp and then ran it through the script cuttlebug folder, inked it after running it through. Then did some sponging on it. I stamped extra panels for the images onto red, cut them and glued them down then stamped the images on more panels, cut out those and sponged then popped them on the red area. The heart is covered with crystal effects...you can't tell it in the photo though of course, lol. I glued the Tim Holtz key on with crystal effects too. Added some jumbo eyelets that I dabbed some gold fixative on, ran the red craft thread around it and basically was done!

For even more inspiration, be sure to check out Melanie's blog.
