Pumpkin Indigo Mosiac Madness

I love the Mosiac Madness stamp set and it's even better that there is a punch AND embossing folder to match!  Love it when Stampin Up does this! 
This card was inspired by SU demonstrator Diane Vander Galien (her card was inspired by Demo Janet Hill)  I used a whisper white card base layered with Island Indigo (so happy that color is in the new line up!) and then another layer of whisper white.  I adhered a 2" wide banner flag in Island Indigo to the WW cs and embossed with the Mosiac Madness embossing folder.  Then added a banner flag in pumpkin pie dsp from the Quatrefancy DSP pack and a Silver Glimmer flag.  Stamped image in Island Indigo and Pumpkin pie and added silver brads in the center. These were popped up with dimensionals.  The Happy Birthday is from Itty Bitty Banners and cut with matching framelit. This was a card we did at my June playday.  I pre-cut the flags and below is a card I made with the pieces from the notch that was cut.
 
 A cute Happy birthday card using leftovers.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig and Fabulous Phrases for the Happy Birthday.

Magical Masking Tape technique

A couple of weeks ago I saw a technique used on a card that was really cool.  Here is the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  It uses masking tape or painter's tape.  I used the green Frog Tape for my card. 


I love this technique and plan on using it a lot more.  The ink colors are Pool Party, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.  The card stock is Wild Wasabi and Whisper White.  I stamped the image from Thoughts & Prayers and embossed with black embossing powder. The tape may leave some residue on the paper when removed so if you emboss, be sure to use the embossing buddy before stamping.  I forgot on my first card and had black powder stuck along the edges of the inked strips.
