A Set of Cards.....

Hi,

Yesterday When I saw the Video on the Hero Arts Blog done by Libby Hickson it Inspired me to Play with a Technique I have not done in many years....... Basically you make a little Mosaic or Tiling in a Piece of Card Stock and then Cut Shapes out of the piece you have made.  I added Glossy accents to mine to make them really look like tile and Grout!

Here are the Cards I made yesterday......


That second one I added Distress Stickles to the Whole Heart for a Little Sparkle.....

The Sentiment Stamps are by Hero Arts (Discontinued) and I had thought I lost them and was so Glad when I finally found them as they are my Favorites.....


And because If I give this as a Gift I thought I needed a few Masculine cards so I made These Below!

 

 The Mustashe was cut with my Hero Arts/Archivers Exclusive Die.....I Just Love it!
And since I wouldn't have this set with out Libby getting it for me, I thought it was Appropriate to use it on Libby Inspired Cards!!  :)

Such a Fun Technique...... Go HERE for the Video!

Hope you have a Great Day!!

These are wonderful, Kelly!! I'm so glad you had fun with this technique. I love how shiny yours are - I may have to try ones with Glossy Accents and Stickles, too! Great idea! And thanks for the sweet mention.

I'd swear you had grout between your mini tiles! Love the gloss, too! And those mustaches are the best! xo
