Mosaic Madness & New In-Colors

Hi Stampers!

I've been having fun playing with the Mosaic Madness bundle, but I have a confession to make.  When I first saw this set, I was NOT impressed.  Same for the new In-Colors.  Totally not my style - or so I thought.  I really should know by now that a lot of stamp sets and colors that at first seem "yucky" to me really get interesting once I see what some of my fellow demos have done with them.  Very true of this set and the new colors!!

You'll recall I did a card for my SIL & downline Cheryl last week.  I liked the basic design so much, I decided to create another card around Mosaic Madness for my Calendar Club ladies this week.  I'll be encouraging them to play around with the stamp set, and also thought this would be a nice way to showcase the new In Colors:

I haven't gotten my hands on any of the new ruffled ribbon that matches the 2013-14 In Colors yet, but was pleased to see that the Primrose Petals stitched ribbon coordinated pretty closely!  I also don't have enough of the new cardstock yet to go around, but Blushing Bride was one of my favorite, unusual neutrals a couple of years ago, and since it's back in our Core Colors now, voila!  It made the perfect card base here.  (Plus I still have quite a stash of it!!)

Card Recipe:

Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Ink: Craft White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: Mosaic Madness, Chalk Talk
Accessories: Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Mosaic punch, 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Primrose Petals, Basic Rhinestones

Hope you enjoy this card & it inspires you to try some colors and/or stamps that may not "catch your eye" the first time you see them!

Happy stampin'!
