As you look through the Stampin’ Up! catalog each year there are certain pages that catch your eye more than others.  Sometimes you don’t even notice a stamp set on the page because the colors and projects on that page don’t catch your eye.  And the next year that same stamp set is presented differently and you see it – you thinks its new – but it isn’t – it was already there last year but presented in a way that didn’t appeal to you.  Do you ever feel that way?

In this new catalog one page that really catches my eye is page 163 – I love the blue, the brown, the natural feel of what is on that page.  Mosaic Madness was in the last catalog and presented in a different way with bright colors and a coordinating designer paper very graphic and bright.  It wasn’t my favorite.  But I LoVE this soft card on page 163 so I decided I wanted to recreate it.  Mine has a few changes but is generally the same card.

mosiac-in-blue-2We made this back in August as part of my Big Shot class.  We used the Modern Mosaic Textured embossing folder for the background.  And by the way this pattern is very popular out in fashion/decor – I’ve seen it a lot.  Plus we used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit – it makes the cutest little butterflies!  And of course the stamp set and coordinating punch.  Some water-coloring with an aqua-painter, a little pearl bling, and a sentiment on a vellum strip.  A nice card don’t you think?

mosiac-in-blueI’m so glad you stopped by today.  Do you try to recreate any of the cards in the catalog – let me know by leaving a comment?
