Welcome to the RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour for June. We are focusing on the Mosaic Madness Set this month.
This set is right on trend. Just walk through any store or flip through any catalog and you'll see the mosaic look everywhere! Plus, this set has many coordinating products - a punch, an embossing folder, and Designer Series Paper! You can even save 15% when you buy the Mosaic Madness Bundle which includes the stamp set in your choice of Clear-Mount or Wood-Mount and the matching punch!
Here's my first card for you - a nice, bright, playful card - that uses all the coordinating products.
Uses Mosaic Madness Clear-Mount Set and Fabulous Phrases Clear-Mount Set plus Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin' Pad, Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Whisper White 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors, Mosaic Punch, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Multipurpose Platform, Standard Cutting Pads, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, Clear-Mount Block B, and Clear-Mount Block G.
I love being able to use sets in unconventional ways, so I used the Mosaic Madness Set to make some Christmas ornaments. The More Merry Messages Set used for the sentiment is still available for purchase as a write-in item even though it isn't pictured in the new big catalog.

I was experimenting with our Core'dinations Card Stock the other day and decided to see what would happen if I placed a piece of card stock on top of a fairly solid stamp and then sanded the top side of the card stock. I showed the card I created while experimenting to Janet Wakeland during Diva Day at her house yesterday and she told me I had to create a card using this technique for this blog tour. So, here it is!
Uses Mosaic Madness Clear-Mount Set and Best of Love Clear-Mount Set plus Primrose Petals Classic Stampin' Pad, Pink Pirouette Classic Stampin' Pad, Whisper White Card Stock, Pink Pirouette Card Stock, In Color 2012-2014 Core'dinations Card Stock (Primrose Petals), Stampin' Sanding System, Core'dinations Dust Buddy, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Pink Pirouette 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, SNAIL Adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Craft Scissors, Mosaic Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Multipurpose Platform, Standard Cutting Pads, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, Clear-Mount Block A, Clear-Mount Block G, Clear-Mount Block H, and Clear-Mount Block I.
Mount all four of the larger mosaic tile images on Block I at the same time. Place the Core'dinations Card Stock on top of the mounted stamps with the rough side of the card stock facing up. Sand across the whole surface using fairly firm pressure. You might want to place a tiny dot of SNAIL on top of the two outer stamps before placing the card stock on top to help hold it still while you stamp. Watch as the underlying stamp images appear as you sand!
