Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - In Colors

Welcome to this months GSF Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who love what we do and share what we love. Our theme for this month is all about the new In Colors. These  trendy In Color collections are available for 2 years and include everything you need to create beautiful hand crafted items.

When I shop for new products to play with I let my shopping list be my guide to the new In Colors. This time it was the beautiful Mosaic Mood Designer Suite of products that was 1st on my wish list.  The new In Color used in this suite is Terracotta Tile.  The Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) will have you grabbing your Paper Snips and fussy cutting full pages of this gorgeous paper. The shiny little Hummingbirds are so, so cute. This mosaic tile design and floral imagery with shiny accents made this a must have collection for me. The Terracotta Cardstock made the perfect Card Base for the project I am sharing with you today.

I added a Mat of So Saffron Cardstock and the Card Front is Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Memorable Mosaic Bundle includes the Memorable Mosaic stamp set and the Timeless Label Punch. Do you love punches as much as I do? This Sentiment Label is Stamped with Garden Green on Very Vanilla and then cut with this new punch. I used my Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker to color the edge of the label. The rest of the Card Front is filled with fussy cut images from the DSP. All of them are cut from the edges of the DSP. I popped them all up on dimensionals. I am sure you have seen the many examples of Jennifer McGuires Floating Frame Technique all over Pinterest. Well, I am calling this the Floating Elements Technique, LOL. No, it's probably not original to me. I am sure someone else has done this before. I have to tell you, because you can't get the full effect from the photo, this method creates a stunning card. The Inside Layer is Very Vanilla stamped with a Sentiment from the stamp set included with the Lots of Happy card kit in Garden Green Ink. The last thing I add to the Card Front was a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with a Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends Dark Marker.

I hope you enjoyed my project today and will be inspired by our new In Colors to create something of your own with these products. Now it is time to get on with the Hop. Just click on the arrow below and you will be taken to the next blog on the list for some more inspiration.

Product List


  1. Just lovely Jan... and yes the Mosaic papers are just perfect for a wee bit of fussy cutting!! Or a lot!

    1. Yes I had a lot of cutting to do. but it was worth every minute.

  2. As always you made a lovely card!

  3. oh this is so cute!
    This set didn't catch my eye until now. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Erica. I think the SDSP really makes the statement. Plus I was able to get in some practice with my fussy cutting (which I Hate).

  4. Simply beautiful card design. I love the way you have used the different elements of this designer series paper. :)

  5. Lovely card! My dsp is still in its original package ;)
    Not sure if I will ever use it.... but this card might just has changed that.

    1. I know what you mean. When I 1st got it and compared it to the stamp set I was underwhelmed. Fussy cutting was the only answer that I could come up with.

  6. Beautiful card and wonderful design. Thanks for the inspiration

  7. Wow! This card is fantastic. I'm having a hard time fussy cutting this paper and the bird paper. Great job.

  8. Beautiful card - I agree, the Terracotta Tile is definitely the perfect color for the card base! I am the same as Angélique...my paper is still unopened, but this makes me want to take it out and use it. Thanks for sharing :-D

  9. Sorry I'm late...
    Beautiful card! Have not used this set...still on the fence if I want it...you make me want it. LOL
