Marvelous Mosaics

I was looking at the WOW demonstration DVD from Stampin Up and the first demonstration I saw, I wanted to do. Not sure the lady's name, but what she did was great.

So here are some of my card's.

The first one I did was using always artichoke, purley pomegrante, river rock CS and Holiday HarmonyDSP. I used my holiday basics stamp set and a misc sentiment.
The second card was using Almost Amethhyst and white CS with a misc DSP and sentiment. I used the holiday basics tree aswell. I embossed the stocking and tree to tie into the card.

But the beauty of this card is in the mosaic paper.

To start with get some double sided sticky paper.For the squares, I cut a stripe about an inch thick and then randomly cut the squares. So what you do is peel off one side of the sticky paper and then cover your paper with your little mosaic squares. Once this is place on your paper, get your embossing powder and place all over the rest of the sticky paper. Heat with your heat tool and there you have it. It is so simple and such a great effect. I made a whole heap at once, and you only need a little bit for each card. I hope you try this effect as I really enjoyed making them. Thanks for looking
